Definitely. I just don't understand why anyone would want to leave such an awesome website. There are a few minor flaws, but the good out-weighs the bad by about 50 tons.

I personaly can say that the lessons and members here have taught me everything I know about guitar. When I joined back in November of last year, I had just bought my first guitar. Now i'm playing my own stuff and uploading takes and things. So I have not only learned to play but also how to record and have met alot of great people along the way.

I'm sorry you feel the way you do about GMC. Maybe just get a little more active and tell people how you feel and dont be afraid to ask for help. I think if you take a little different approach you may get better results.

I cant imagine anybody not finding at least a few lessons here that that they like. OK, maybe if your into Hanna Montanna or something, gees, this place has everything to offer and I love it!

Well that wasn't very constructive. Best of luck, hope you find what makes you happy.

Personally, I am another one who has learned more from this site in a few short months than in years of trying to learn guitar myself. I also think that this site is remarkable in how much value you get for the price of membership.

It is easy to remark about things you may not like, much more difficult to propose positive ways to influence change. I do not see a whole lot that needs to be fixed here........and if things do change, I would rather be a part of that here.

well, while i know this guy isn't in our top 20 posters (and ofcourse he's fairly new too) i also know that everybody is valued in a way..its kind of whats cool about the site. Maybe he hasn't posted that much but like he's already said- it's not the quantity, its the quality...(okay, i haven't seen a life changing post yet but thats besides the point). To say that somebody brings no value to a place is not really the best news to be received by the guy in question.

But hey, why am i posting this stuff? His mind is made up anyways.

Wow... this thread got lots of attention. I dare to say it's because someone degraded something 99% here enjoy and we all feel like raising our voices smile.gif

Me too wink.gif

I'd just want to say I'm sorry to see you leave. For GMC to continously improve your experience and opinion is important. You made you point. It would be appreciated to know more about what you're looking for in a lesson. I'm positive your input there would give us new ideas.

If you care to expound and suggest, before you leave, that would me most appreciated.

As many people have said, including me: I have learned more here on 6 months (has it been this long allready?) then two years of training on my own. Especially on the forums. The lessons is awesome, and I learn a buttload of things there, but it's the forums that make this whole thing work. We have some of the greatest and kindest instructors here, who thirsts and long for passing on their knowledge to us students.

Thank you GMC =)

Bondy came out with what i resisted saying tongue.gif. In all fairness all opinions i think are valued and if you want to have your say fair enough but could have been done in a different way maybe?

im missing somthing on this site then because i dont see any of this. the lessons dont explain anything. they just say ok play this song like this. and thats it. they dont explain theory in the lesson or other ways to play what they are learnings. and besides the theory board the theory lessons suck. there are alot better websites out there. the mode lessons are pretty bad. but hey if this is ur idea of the best site ever then all power to u. sure i learned some cool riffs but i dont want to learn other no name guitar players riffs. i want to learn the theory behind stuff. any1 can play a cool metal progression when its tabbed out infrount of them

I think you're kind of expecting someone to hold your hand the way there to mastering guitar. A lot of these lessons are demonstrating how you can use these things in your own playing and after a while as you learn these lessons you start to develop ideas yourself. Someone correct me if i'm wrong smile.gif

Now i relly think you are very negative...ITt sounds like you want evything handed to you on paper....You have to work your way with everything....take the theori for example.... When you read a theori piece from that Andrew wrote you ant expect to have learn evrything in that subject you have to figure something out yourself.... I dont think their are any sites that gives you everyting free without you have to work anything

Maybe you can think of GMC as being more than just video lessons and theory. For example, there are a lot of things that I have learned here such as:

I use Protools because I learned about it from Marcus Lavendell (as well as vibrato)
I use Reaper because I learned about it from Tony Miro
I use VST's because of Andrew and Muris
I use my ring sometimes to play cool notes that I learned from Juan
I learned how to use my Spider II Amp from David Wallimann
I've had some good advice about warming up from Matt
I've learned about Video camera's from Wallimann + Smells
I've learned about new Metal bands from The Uncreator
I've learned drum techniques from Kyle

The list goes on and on. To me it's more than video lessons and theory. Of course not every lesson is for everyone and nothing is perfect. But, there is a lot more to the whole experience and maybe that is something to consider that you get besides just videos. Personally, for all of that it's worth it to me. So, consider sticking around for a while. Maybe you'll discover that there is a lot more good things going on here than you realize. smile.gif

OMG...

..okay...well instead of trying to put a positive swing on this i'll go ahead and say- your not putting in the work.

Here's what i did..

I studied the theory lessons, i asked questions to instructors when i didn't understand.

notice the things in bold are things that you have to do yourself..

Now i understand the things i didn't have a clue about. The resources are here to use. Use them. The instructors genuinely love to help us out and answer our questions (from my experience), and will not leave anybody behind.

So...if you don't understand the "point" of a lesson, don't say it "sucks"- maybe...

" Hello, Mr.ABC, i was wondering what the main thing i should grasp about this lesson is? I see you're using 123 technique, and also spoke about XYZ, but i don't really get this yet- what should i learn first?"

*TADA*

You will be answered.

You will understand.


and yet again...those immature words like "suck" really don't win any debates around here.

1) "ABC sucks"
or
2) "I dislike ABC because...."

notice to 1) all we can do is say.."sure, whatever, good luck with that" and to 2) we can say "Well, perhaps this is because..."
