All the theory lessons are free biggrin.gif Do they not count as free lessons?

I see what Constie is saying, although it is rather pedantic to say that there isnt any 'free' lessons at GMC, in terms of video lessons you can access the full tab (although I dont know if this was Kris' intention tongue.gif ) and usually a couple of video segments without signing up. Thats a video showing you how the excercise works and a full run down of how to play it at the very least - that looks to me like a lesson.

The truth is that its a minor detail and no-one here much cares to dispute its being there in the first place anyway, but poor Constie, as fkalich says, seems to be digging himself into a hole that could just as easily be avoided and see an end to all this kerfuffle smile.gif

@Kris I meant I don't think you can get enough money ONLY with gmc.(Well I don't know what you get biggrin.gif )

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".

I don't know what you mean.
Are you trying to make me feel guilty for something blink.gif

I said forget it to this ONE point, I thought it was a joke.

I don't get what you want from me, stop blaming me, I'm not poor or anything else.

The problem is some people don't try to understand my arguments and come up with something that has been finished before.

Firstly, I dont want to sound rude or offend anyone:-P Its definitely not my reason;)

Secondly:
Why to push him there (corner)?:-P Its his opinion, and there is NO NEED for him, to say "Sorry guys.. my fault" for thinking something different - he is not forcing anyone, to do anything. He just asked for clarification:
"What are the free Solo/Lead and rhytm lessons?" "Lick of the day? Or previews? Or those free green parts of lessons?."
GMC is open minded and straight society, he can think and ask w/e he wants;). Listen or be deaf;) This is your choice:)

Anyways... its Kris's buisness whatever he puts on main page and its title.. This is not democracy:-P Thats why GMC prospers:-P Like it or hate it.. GMC still rules:-D

I think maybe Constie had you not have put

quote: "Also the mainpage says that. Very dubious in my view."

You may not have found yourself in the firing line, it questions something that all of us, and indeed yourself holds most dear, the almighty GMC!

otherwise it was a perfectly innocent question which I`m sure would have been discussed and answered without you looking like the bad guy, (which of course your not), its a great discussion, but I`m pretty sure your sitting there amazed at the response? smile.gif

This topic was for me like asking a christian for evidences for a god wacko.gif
Like question a religion and you are the pope.

Thanks Jakub making this clear, I feel like pushed in the corner and the pope still wants me to confess.

Hope the Christians here will pardon me.

I understand your point perfectly Constie. I believe its valuable to have members such as yourself who have the courage to bring up potentally unpopular topics when they perceive it may be harmful to the GMC community. Thanks!

I understand very well what Constie is talking about, because I as well was very confused when i looked at the site for the first time.

In some youtube ads and other places (which i cant remember) it said, "Free Guitar Lessons" so well, all i could find "free" was the Lick of The Day Lessons (at that time), then i realised there were free theory lessons, and a free video from each lesson.

Like i said when i introduced myself here, i browsed alot around here before i joined, a couple of months. And well, the main reason that I was confused about "Free Guitar Lessons"was that, of course, I wanted more. But that cant happen, unless you join (and im glad i did).

So Constie said "this can be very dubious/confusing for other people" and its very truth at a certain point, because i was very confused too. I browsed this site entirely, like if it was a building or something, trying to find those "Hidden Guitar Lessons" but then it hit me, you gotta pay, to get the best wink.gif

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

We should get professional opinions from the RIAA lawyers.
The lessons should be copyrighted materials that NOBODY can see, paid or not.
Not even the instructors can view lessons.
