I have just a suggestion since the site is going through and update phase.

On Kristofers lick of the day archive you can loop backing tracks. I am finding myself with the lessons wanting to do the same. For example, if I am working on a lesson that is teaching me about how to jam with a Jazz swing in D major (just cause its on the front page right now), it would be nice once I learn the lick (got the notes and the key the lesson is in) to be able to improve and explore using D major all over the neck on my own while looping the backing track with that style or feel.

Just my 2 cents. I think this would really help with exploring modes, linking boxes, etc. within the context of the lesson. In other words learning the feel and how to apply it to your own style as well. Not just the notes or how to play a lick.

What do you all think?

You pause naturally when conversing, right? If you don't, you'll bore the listener. The same thing will happen with your audience if your solo is one dimensional. You'll wear them out and lose their attention." —Tom Principato

I think a loop feature on all the video lessons would be great, that way when you mess up, no need to restart the BT.

Yeah, that would be cool to. I hate having to take my hands off the guitar to click the play button.

Hmm, cool. I would be surprised if I was the first one to think of this.

Anyway, like your R & R collab. Wish I had a way to record right now and I would join .

Wow, Lots of looks and only a few replies. Come on everyone. Has this been brought up before? Do you have an opinion?

What do you think?

it has been brought up before. I think making the backing tracks loop-able would be one of the best additions to GMC. That way we can jam to the backing without interrupting our playing, which gets annoying.

And it avoids all the download copy right stuff. If you are a member then you can jam with our backing tracks and learn.

Thanks to the magic of GMC, you can already do this! Just move the arrows on the loading bar to where you want to start and end the loop and TaDa, you've got a looping video!

You can loop the videos, but in the original post I think he said the backing tracks. I haven't found a way to loop those yet but maybe I'm missing something.

Ah, I thought he meant loop the videos, not the entire lesson. Woops! Well, I'll leave it up for anyone who doesn't know about that.

A loop feature ( on the backing tracks ) would be great ohmy.gif
There`s only one lesson ( for as far as I know ) who has that feature, and that's Gabriel's Dark Atmosphere Lesson smile.gif

As Bogdan said this is on it's way - the idea is that the looping points will be set by the instructors when producing the lesson.

So that all you will have to do is press play and the backing will loop endlessly! smile.gif

This will be a great feature. Please let us know Kris so we can prepare our lessons according to that. I already have some ideas how to use this effectively. smile.gif
