GMC owns, is great, very cheap and almost perfect in general. But it's still not free. At least that's how I see it.

Guys, $10 USD a month?

Thats pretty much free, thats like lunch money for an elemtary school kid every day.


10$ fee is way to low, i can sure say it as instructor who spend loads of time creating vids wink.gif

Nobody forces you to make lessons.
Some people do it for free, because it's fun for them.
I don't think GMC can or should be an alternative for a real job.

Well said Smikey and Jakub.
Thanks for depicting my point of view smile.gif

Sure the instructors have to be payed, GMC is a fair deal.
Money makes the world go 'round. We all know that biggrin.gif
Damn dictionary. It's not easy to pick the right word if there are about 20 biggrin.gif


actually based on the standard (Webster's) definition, it was a reasonable choice. but generally it is used for something more serious, often as "dubious intent". although it can mean doubtful also. at least that is my impression. then again, there have been times when I find I have giving a meaning to a word my whole life, that was not exactly correct, so maybe someone would disagree with me on this on.

Pavel is a college student, supplementing his income. Sound real job enough to me under his circumstances.

Yeah but you sure like seeing high quality lesson, don't you? Free sites offer totally basic and low quality lessons and NO instructor communication so that's why it can be considered a real job smile.gif

I think we do. That's a discussion, nothing wrong with it?!?!
I get along with everyone no matter if I ask inconvenient questions or say things that are not easy to answer.

sometimes when you dig yourself into a hole, the best recourse is to climb out and say "sorry guys, my mistake!". generally the response is "forget it".

alternatively one can pursue the alternate strategy, and keep digging until you reach China. Wait, you are from Germany, you will eventually reach the middle of the Pacific Ocean I guess if this thread lasts long enough. Actually even in the US we don't reach China, that is a myth, I think we end up somewhere near New Zealand. We have GMC'ers who can fish us out of the ocean. However you may be in trouble, I don't think was have anyone here from Hawaii that I have seen.

Awesome discussion here - I watched the thread going from 0 to over 50 replies in no time! Lots of feelings here - mostly love of course! wub.gif laugh.gif

Constie - I agree with you excpet on the "should not be considered a real job" - of course gmc should be considered a real job! I cannot think of a better place for outrageously skilled guitarists to work!

So back to topic - wouldn't it be more honest to actually specify that we offer 400 videos for free out of 3000? Absolutely! However, when advertising there is no space for long sentences. We include one word ("free") which sais it all - we need the rest of the space to explain what the site is about.

I hope we don't offend anyone with this! unsure.gif
