im leaving GMC. i am not happy with the website. the lessons are scattered everywhere. there is no logic. basicly a new teacher every time i log on. i feel like the lessons on the site are just to meet quota. a new lesson everyday? i dont want quanity i want GOOD quality. somthing i have not found in GMC. there are some good lessons. but for every good lesson there are 10 bad lessons. they dont explain anything. and nwo that pavel is gone im going to find a new way to learn guitar. thank you for a waste of time.

GuitarMasterClass has increased my skill immensely. I've learned more in the three months here then the year I spent trying to teach myself. I personally love the lessons, and I say the more instructors there are, the better. I don't know lessons you're watching when you say that they aren't quality. I think you may have lost your mind, dear sir. It's you're decision, and if you feel this way, feel free to leave. I personally disagree, however.

Consider this....there are other users, not just you. We don't all want the same genre. Different lessons bring different aspects of guitar playing to different users dependant on how and what they want to use.

New instructors all the time? A fact of life is people eventually leave GMC (such as yourself) and it is necessary for new instructors to join so that we don't end up as a community with no teachers! (by the way if a new instrctor joins every time you log in then you should probably log in more often..)

Good? define good....i could tell you something about music that you didn't know right now and you'd think it was a good piece of information, but someone else may already have known the information i just shared with you- does that lessen the value of that content/information? Good and bad is not the same to everybody...its called an opinion.

By the way- there are more subtle and mature ways to share an opinion of the value you receive as the customer, this may involve giving constructive feedback about your experience with the product in order to improve both the product and your experience using it. Not just...silence...silence...silence.."This sucks...BYE!!"


one more thing...

Bye- i hope you find the way you like to learn guitar.

i consider your site incredible myself, and I have been here now over a year. maybe he is frustrated with his own progress and it is like kicking a dog who won't bite back, only he made you the dog. no offense meant to you or to dogs.

edit: typo. also speaking of dogs, I take mine around with me, and maybe for months everybody loves my dog. but once in awhile I meet somebody who does not like dogs. I just figure it is them, not me, and don't take it to heart.

Well you are partialy right, the site isn't perfect, but it's defintly improving immensly since the whole Pavel incident, even though as you say there seem to be a new teacher every day, the new teachers are defintly proven proffesionals and know what they are doing, and I think their lessons are a proof of that!

Avecourse there won't be a "logical" order, a lesson order is something that is changing depending on the person, and I think there are enough of good lessons on here for anyone to build his own plan to reach the style they want, but if you want a true logical order of lessons according to you'r specific needs, than go to a private teacher, it is indeed the best way to learn! but only take to considoration that you will pay for a month what you would pay here for 6, and that it might take a while until you find the teacher who best serves you'r needs.

Oh and I know I was the one that said this site is going on the wrong track, but im not contradicting(is that how you spell it?) myself here, this is evidence that I see the site is truly improving and going on the right track(in my opinion)! so keep up the excellent work Kris, I'm very happy that I feel more than satisfied with the site again smile.gif

This is part of what makes GMC great. When one person says "I don't like this website, bye.", everybody jumps in and asks why, and wishes you the best of luck, and tries to make this place better. It's not just the lessons, it's the people in the community, too. Sorry for replying so much, but I feel strongly about how awesome this place is.

Indeed, probably the best thing about the site is the great community, contains musicians of all levels and all genres, and everyone are friendly.

Exactly- people on this site have helped me so much- and i'm going to return that help to whoever needs it because i know first hand how much of a boost we can get from a little friendly help within minutes of asking for that help.

On a side note...

Surely the site cannot suck that bad...you're still logged on, right?

unsure.gif

Anyhow, enjoy your guitar journey..i hope you make it big.

Sorry you didn't find what you were looking for here on gmc, everyone has to find their way of learning. I do think the lessons are good hear generally however sometimes i do find myself asking 'so what did i learn from this exactly?' but this isn't enough to make me want to leave i will be learning from this site for a while to come.

I really think that the community here is the best on the internet.....

I spend many many hoursa day on GMC and i think i spend about 60-70 % of that time just redaing the forums or waiting for someone to write something interesting....

Woner hopw good i will be if i spend more time with the guitar laugh.gif
