Well believe it or not but this whole board is here thanks to GMC members suggestions! biggrin.gif

We do have alot of ongoing plans - everything from adding basic features/improvements such as metronome, scale generator, forum profile upgrades (etc) to advanced/innovative interactive features which we don't want to reveal quite yet...

However all suggestions are welcome - many of the cool things we have already got are ideas from you.

Thanks again! smile.gif

I would stand for songwriting think tank - a kind of SONGWRITING LIBRARY:
First create a brainstorming thread directed on songwriting - strategies to use when songwriting, rythm patterns, riff licks ideas, chord progressions etc.

then create a Wiki thread about this and digestedly put there all the informations and progressions we gather. Make it a kind of inspiration thread... A lot of times happens to everyone (imo..) that he comes up with cool riff.. but it lacks something.. and you cant come with anything.. so you can go in there and catch some inspiration:)

I would gladly take a role in this as author of the wiki thread (summarizing the brainstormed info) and making it easy to read:)

Opinions please:)

not much to complain about. very satisfied, you are doing a fine job with the site. i could say this or that, but I think that you know what you are doing without my advice.

edit: oh one thing. the popularity thing, I consider that unhelpful for users and for teachers. that just encourages people to try and make other people like them, rather than tell them the truth. I ignore it, it is not worth it to me to spew bull **** just to try and make people like me.

I'm very happy with the site and my progress, would just like to see the difficulty level included on each lessons main page.
Keep up the good work!

Cheers.

+1 On Col

It would be very usefull to see the difficulty at the lesson main page, because sometimes someone gives a URL to a lesson but than I have to look it up to see whats te level. wink.gif

Edit:

There's another thing I'm not satisfied of and that are the groups...
Like now you have the wiki group... I think many peops would rather have all the members together rather than make sorts of ranks.

Or am I wrong?

How bout a sub-forum of some sort for beginning guitarists who join. I think it would be a great place for new players to congregate and ask questions that have been asked over and over, (and answered of course). Also they would be able to interact with people of there own skill level. I for one came here with no skill whats so ever and would loved to had a forum just for my questions. You could designate a senior for the answers.

Thanks again guys! I'm miles from where I was at 4 months ago! biggrin.gif

awww but i like my little wiki'er badge tongue.gif.. it seems there is alot of uproar about the diversity rescently.. i don't mind identifying moderators but perhaps im starting to think the senior idea was not so great? I really have respect for the people who are seniors as ive been at this site for a while and remember them before they were seniors and such things.. and personally i don't mind ranks but its up to the people? maybe have a poll to see what GMC'ers would prefer.. i think having badges gives people something to shoot for and therefore makes them contribute to the site more.. i know thats one of the reasons i started writting for the wiki soo id really like to know what most people think...

That would be cool , but than again it would open doors to people potentially using GMC to send spam messages over PM wink.gif

Hello!
This is not a suggestion, but more of a question:
is there a way of "bookmarking" certain answers from the instructors in the various threads?
In these first 6 months at GMC I read and received so many useful answers from the instructors and seniors
and sometimes I'd like to re-read them but can't remember where they were...
I hope you understand what I mean.

Eddie

That sounds really good!, even though I check the site & forums every single day, it would be cool to receive a monthly email summarizing new improvements to the site/forums, competitions, collabs, features, and even a list of lessons, just in case!

Would be a nice thing to check after coming back from vacation smile.gif
