Search Suggestions
Get search suggestions as you type! These suggestions are based on popular search terms at GMC and should make it easier for you to find killer lessons that suit your taste.

Bookmarks
Today you might have noticed bookmarks look a little different.

In order to solve a bug which would make it hard to move a bookmark to the root folder, we had to upgrade the code and software. As a side effect of this fix, you now also have trash folder in the edit mode - which can be useful when you want to hide some bookmarks but not completely remove them.

Other than this - controls are pretty much the same.

Site speed / response time
Since a couple of weeks back the site is more responsive. This is particularly noticeable in the forum. See previous announcement.

Other
It is now possible to use the back button when you have checked out a series on the series page - without having to redo the filtering.

---

As awalys we are grateful for suggestions and bug reports!

I don't know if it would be possible to add this feature to the scale generator, but I think it would be GREAT to have the ability to click a button and view the scale as "intervals" in that key of scale or mode!

+1. Great suggestion. I saw this approach on another website and thought it was really useful for practicing and learning scales.

Yeah, it would be a huge help for me in particular....for where I'm at, and how I WANT to view the fretboard. I see "patterns" (scales, modes etc) but I'm missing the "interval view", which when mixed with chord shapes and arpeggios.....well, it can give you the REAL story on what's happening in the music!! As opposed to "play this note, and it works".

Intervals!!

In the meanwhile, I've taken to just writing them out on paper. Boring, but it helps.

So basically you want to be able to tell the scale generator to show the 3rd 5th and b7 in the key of A (random example) - do I understand you?

Should be doable!

I think that regarding the Scale Generator, it would be cool to add an option which will re-arrange all the scales based on various other used tunings, such as:

Drop D
Standard D
Drop C
Standard B
Drop A
DADGAD
CGCFGC

Hope this won't be too much of a fuss to put into practice, but I am sure that it will help people get a better grasp on learning various tunings behind lessons or songs which are using them.

Good Idea Cosmin

This would be great as well - I am thinking about perhaps adding an "advanced" section/tab to the scales generator which would allow for more control.

The idea with this advanced section would be to keep the simplicity of the current version of the scale generator - but allow more control for those who want it. This way advanced users can change tunings, or specify intervals instead of scale names, as suggested in this thread.

I think this level of flexibility would be very useful indeed smile.gif

And the scale generator with intervals instead of note names can be a great tool for explaining chord construction! smile.gif

Yes you are right - it could actually be used as it is like a (clumsy!) chord generator.
