I guess its a bit like the wiki page - your articles will be edited mercilessly by the community , so be aware of that before you choose to write one...
and your threads will be discussed mercilessly also; as we all have opinions and love to talk , joke, laugh, be happy, like each other very much, say we disagree in an agreeable fashion etc etc laugh.gif
So if nobody takes anything too personally we will all be fine.

Here are my 2 cents :

I think having the word "Free" in the advertisements is vital. The more people who view the site the better. As you all know it is not only instructors giving advice on lessons and tips/tricks etc., but members as well. Also, having potential new instructors checking the site out is always a good thing. The more different styles/types of lessons the better.

Does the advertisement say "ALL GUITAR LESSONS ARE FREE?" or "FREE GUITAR LESSONS?" There are free guitar lessons and lessons that you must be a member to get the full deal. I personally am extremely happy with the way things are now at GMC. I playing continues to improve everyday by using this site and I know I wouldn't be at the same level without this site.

Cheers,
Rolls

Pls read history posts, this has already been discussed to very deep height and all the thread opener actually pleased this thread to be closed. Havent happened yet, but I think it would be suitable, to leave him a rest.

With regards,

I agree its been discussed in length but if someone wants to add an opinion that hasnt already then I think its their right to do so, they may even have an idea that is worth discussing further, who knows, if you arent happy with the thread (or the topic starter) then dont read it wink.gif

Yah! The free caught my attention too and I used the "free" lessons to get a feel for the site. If I didn't like what I saw I would have just gone somewhere else. The going rate for personal lessons her where I live is about $25-$35 per half hour. For what I pay for 1 hour of personal lessons I can create my own lesson plan and learn what I want to learn when I want to learn it. Shoot for a half hour lesson you just start getting warmed up and then it's time to go. Love this site!

Well, people who see that GMC is not completely free and leave because of this reason should really leave and never come back again because i guess they are all ***** ****!!! I find the GMC fee is nothing. Actually I really like to pay this little amout of money because it's very very well invested for me. It may sound strange but I really like to pay those guys because they are not only professional guitar players but they also know how to teach things and that is definetely the keypoint. I used to have a private "real instructor" and he taught me almost nothing at all even though he was a damn good player. But he was a complete loser in teaching things and I paid 55 Euros a month ! So keep providing us with great stuff GMC instructors !I'Ve been learning ten times more for those 2 month since I am a member with gmc than in almost 3 years in my "real" guitar lessons.
All of those guys should take this into consideration!!!!!!

As Muris sais - thanks for the great words but please watch your language.--Kris

I have to say something you:

You say your guitar teacher teached you less that gmc but was more expensive.
You have half an hour or an hour a week with your guitar-teacher while you can practise gmc the whole day. How could he ever teach you as much in less time. one hour vs. 15 hours??

In fact gmc can not replace my guitar-teacher because it's a different kind of learning and communicating.
A "real" teacher can provide you more than you may think. F.e. tell you how to adjust the guitar and stuff like that.
At gmc it's almost only learning lessons (I know the collaborations, but I don't like to record and transfer via internet).
With a teacher you can jamm, you learn how to improvise the right way and it's more straight fortward, I think.

Instead of gmc you could also use the tabs from ultimateguitar and learn songs from bands you like. Sorry for saying this but it's true.
A friend of mine did so and he got sooooo fast on guitar in such a short time. I was damn jealous and because I'm lazy I decided to join gmc.

Don't get me wrong I like it here, the lessons offer me more styles than I would ever find on UG, but if you are just about to improve speed etc than it's just learning. No matter where.

So what I finally want to say is: You learn the most with teacher AND gmc (UG, or whatever) because you're not only sitting alone in your room in front of the pc to practise.
That would drive me insane by the time.

You may dislike me for saying that.
Ok I also wanted to learn tapping and stuff but seriously I'm too lazy learn the whole song from tabulature.
I need something visual.

And I think that's what almost all people want here.
If I request a lesson "In style of ..." couldn't I just download a tab and learn a song from that band? Would be the same effect.

It's okay for me, cause we all have our own opinions.
Mine seems to be unpopluar but however I will always tell.

You could tell us, what you think gmc provides that tabulators can't, instead of being upset.

GMC as a last resort. interesting.

Was a first choice for me cool.gif


edit: you'ce gotta remember that GMC offers advice such as the though process and theory behind each lesson- something that isnt explained in a tablature. Also you are paying for a helpful community that stay patient and always want to help.

Fine you cant jam- but there are collaborations with helpful feedback on each entry (and there are many many different styles to choose from) but back to jamming, iv seen NINJAM mentioned a few times and i wouldnt mind checking it out smile.gif

Unfortunatley my minds all ready made up about the benefits of GMC, maybe i've just got too loyal over the past year, maybe it is how you see it? Either way, GMC works for me and i plan on staying for atleast a half-decade biggrin.gif
