Hey Guitarman. Have you read all the topics about new guys coming to GMC saying stuff like "Well, I finally picked up my guitar for the first time in 25 years and now here I am." ? You have a great opportunity to become a great guitar player being here, that those guys didn't have. I urge you to think it over, you wouldn't want to realize many years down the road that you actually DO want to play guitar and you DO have the motivation, do you? You'll kick yourself when you realize what you could have achieved, especially with the help of GMC!

In the end, it's up to you. But I would persuade you to keep going. I know it seems like slow progress at times, I've definitely been there and I know I'll be there some more. But if you keep playing, you WILL get better. It takes time. But don't give up.

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


Hey man, you know what? my subscription expired like 3 months ago, and i still hang out here, its a great community. And i still learn, i still practice my ass off everyday to fulfill my dream, but it seems like it isnt your dream but rather a hobby. I dont think you should leave, but if you want to quit guitar or practice less, theres no harm in that really. Theres many things to do in life, just go for them smile.gif

Id like to have your MSN so we could chat sometime, it would be good smile.gif


QUOTE (Angelica @ Mar 2 2008, 04:27 PM) *
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?


Hey theres no need for that really.. the forum is a great place to hang out smile.gif

i hope you stay, I`d go with having a break for sure but dont give up smile.gif

hard sometimes to keep going when other things/pressures & money are involved, I gave up for 6 months when my daughter was born but also coz I felt it was a good moment to quit, my wife actually talked me out of getting rid of some of my gear as I was adamant I wouldnt pick it up again, but here I am! and loving it! to begin with (once I discovered GMC for inspiration) when I first plugged the guitar back in it was really tough! but after a very short period of time it all came back with a whole new lease of life for me, I cant remember the last time I enjoyed playing my guitar so much, a break if you feel this way will ultimatly do you some good, it worked for me

No! no one at GMC would ever do that. but, people i look up to, they say, "theres no way to make money as a pro musician, youll never make it that way. find a nice safe career, and youll do fine." this is coming from some other guitar players i know, and i heard that for years, till i stopped seeing them. their my friends, but i just could not tak that anymore.

I can guarantee you're better than me on guitar. Stick around as people don't want anyone to quit guitar or leave here. Especially people who actually contribute some to the community. I want to quit guitar but I'm just having a break and doing other things for a while.

Ok man, but my gamertag is LucaBrasi2007 i think ( i cant remember it biggrin.gif), im not around Xbox Live that much but ill try to get on sometime.

Also, if thats your dream, then dont put it down, dreams were created for only the strongest ones to achieve, those people you say are part of a guitarists dream, a singer's dream, a painter's dream, of ANY dream! those people are part of every story and they should be! Because if they werent, would you feel that accomplished when you are finally there?

It's hard to pick the right path or career,indeed.
But the most important thing is to enjoy in it.
And every career or job needs hard work,
easy money is something that comes after hard work.
So you can try something else as a career but you don't have to quit guitar because of that.
Let it stays a hobby or some cause many guys have turned their hobbies into careers.
I'm not telling that you'll do the same IF you try something else
but just try to enjoy for work,that's the only way of success. smile.gif

I think its up to you.....but I think it would be a mistake. the people hear are pretty cool.........sure once in a while a honest opinion might get you a small heated debate but,,,,,,,in the end no one is going to hate you for it...I will say if it is a health risk to play guitar then take it in a new direction........music has more areas to learn..like mixing and production...........make some midi backing tracks with fruity loops.and have a few collabs........would give you a break from guitar.and a whole new out look on music...... thats what is great about gmc.......everyone and anyone can get involved..............with starting a collab or a topic.......... just something to think about..........but i hope you stay...i dont realy know who you are.......but musicians tend to allways stick together...and help one anouther

For lesser then 50$ you have access to a huge library of lessons and now you want to leave because you don't agree with some comments in this forum? ... you don't think you punish the wrong people with a comment like this?

Who are they to say something like this? GMC is born after Kris' personal experience. The hard work is the key. No matter which is the job. As said before, you can play the guitar as a hobby. The most important thing about to play an instrument is to have fun. Sometimes it's boring to play exercises but for me it's all about fun.

You know what? Screw them. You can achieve anything that you want if you set your mind to it. Don't pay any attention to people like that. Live your dreams.
