well, im considering leaving gmc. between several personal arguments and financial troubles, including the fact im not getting anywhere on guitar, i feel it may be time for me to move on. i still have several months to make my decision, but im leaning toward it. there are people here who i would call my friends (you know who you are) but i feel the community has changed, and im going through a rough time in life right now. if anyone wants me to stay tell me, and ill take that into consideration.

thanks. unsure.gif

How long have you been playing? Perhaps your expectations are too high and you are trying to accomplish things that are require many more practice hours. And the best way to avoid personal arguements is to just stray away from controversial topics. I have heated personal arguements all the time on UG, and I don't sweat them at all, no big deal really, just opposing opinions. If you are having financial problems and are leaving GMC beacuse of that, I think everyone can understand and respect that.

Hey m8 I'm here since just a week and I'm thinking same thing.
I think I won't just because I wanna try to learn something from guitar lessons.
Probably I'll write less on the forum.
Perhaps you could do the same?

about 3 years. but lately, many things have kept me from practicing; sickness, for about 3 weeks, my chronic shoulder pain and an ingrown finger nail. im trying to pull my life together, but i just feel lost and overwhelmed, i dont know what to do.

This is very sad to hear! sad.gif

Please let us know what you refer to when you are not satisfied - your voice is strong here as the development of GMC is community driven.

We really want to make this a good place for everybody!

like the old saying goes "its not you, its me", im at a time in my life, when i feel confused about the direction i want to take, my practice schedule suffers due to my attention deficit disorder, and i dont know if i can continue with guitar, maybe i need a break, i dont know. i need direction in my life.

I would leave also, if it were expensive. But at 6 months for under $50 a clip, no brainer. I hang around, best deal in town. Even if I have already been exposed to most genres already here. Some of those guys may be household names in the music world in a little while. Pretty unreal to be getting advise from guys like Muris as this price.

it's not like it is a marriage, or leaving a job of 15 years. if you want, let it expire. if you want to come back, come back. i think maybe you are a bit embarrassed because you opened up with people here on your personal life. probably not a greaet idea with people you don't know very well, but big deal. so what? yesterday I bought a big bag of potato chips and ate the whole bag in one setting. also not a good idea. it happens. there is a quote from Mark Twain (greatest american novelist in my view). it goes like, "dogs are great because you can make a fool of yourself in front of your dog, and the dog will just make a fool of himself back to you.". Just think of us as a bunch of dogs.

You're adding a lot to the GMC community by your presence so of course we want to you stick around. I do.

It's understandable that if there's a lot going on in your life you should deal with that. I mean, one can't just add stuff into ones back pack, sooner or later it will overflow.

Listen! Very often burden feels heavy but some times the solution can be simple. If you're looking for solutions I'll suggest something.
Make a list of what you do and how much time it takes - the idea is to become more efficient - and be honest to yourself when you do it.

like;
homework - a lot
GMC - a lot
console games - a lot
TV - a lot
Going out - a little
football practice - medium

Six activities where of four is "a lot". Would need change I'd say. Less time spent on each thing, all tasks planned and not doing several things at once - like homework + GMC + TV at the same time would be bound to fail all three.

Add to the list how important things are and how much you'd want to spend
homework - a lot (10 a lot)
GMC - a lot (7 medium)
console games - a lot (5 medium)
TV - a lot (2 a little)
Going out - a little (4 a little)
football practice - medium (3 a little)

Cut the time for the lower points and spend time on the higher ones.
First do home work for a long time, when finished go for GMC for a medium period of time, next some console gaming, finally some football practice... no time to TV today. For example.

It's easy to sort out what takes time and how to prioritise and I suspect that with problems concentrating it's a good way to deal with things to spend time on one thing at a time.

Hopefully GMC is up there (below school) when you're done wink.gif
