I was wondering why GMC is always advertised as "free guitar video lessons".
It's not free isn't it? laugh.gif
Also the mainpage says that. Very dubious in my view. wacko.gif

Heeeeeeeeeeeeey. Wait a second. You got me wrong.

I didn't meant it should be free, but it's a curious kind of advertising saying it's for free but in fact it isn't.

There is actually a lot of free stuff on the main page. All of the video lessons have free sections (in green). That's how I got hooked on this site, I think it was an "In the Style of" lesson. It even had the tab below the video, though you can't open the GP tab. It gives people a great feeling for what a value is in store for them if they join.

some elements are free, if you choose to upgrade by paying then that is your choice smile.gif
Not deceptive, GMC doesn't force you to pay does it ?!

I become insane. You're like politicians biggrin.gif

If I read free lessons, than I expect free lessons and not just videos from guitarists playing.
You get that also on youtube.

I DO NOT WANT TO decry GMC. I wouldn't be here, if I didn't like it.
It's just curious to me

Well I think you don't know why I started this thread. Actually I wanted to talk if this is a good promotion or if it's deterring for people that come here and think it's free. When they see it's not they'll probably leave the page.
