scroll down
























keep scrolling it will be worth it

























almost there

























aaand the answer is...



























Alex Feather Akimov




I bet you are tired of these cryptic writings by now - so I'll just say it in plain GMCish: We have a new instructor and he rocks!

Alex is a world class session guitarist and has some of the biggest names ever on his list.

He has already started spreading his vast experience on our forum - check out these topics:

How To Keep Your Gig
How To Learn Songs For Auditions
How To Get Studio Gigs
Learn How To Sight Read
Arranging And Recording Tricks

But today you get more than that, check out Alex' first lesson: Beautiful Lani - a song that will be on his third album.

Also check out his profile, two beautiful compositions - and his introduction video:




Alex's goal at GMC is to give you all the tools necessary to become a world class studio guitarist, as well as to give you an understanding of the business.

Welcome to GMC Alex, I can already feel the over-all level of inspiration here rising! biggrin.gif

It's all about the journey, not the destination.
