So it's been about one year here at GMC and I want to thank Kristopher Dahl for inspiring me to join. I found GMC at a particularly rough time in my life and had many late-night hours to kill. I saw some amazing guitar playing and so many talented guitarists willing to share their secrets of shredding, which was always a mystery to me. Things have turned around for me personally, and I must give some credit to GMC and the wonderful, friendly, insightful, and supportive members who contribute to the forums for giving me something to look forward to each day.

What have I learned in a year? More than I had in the past fifteen. Seriously! Things I never dreamed I'd ever be able to play, but always wanted to "sound like that", and now can play almost flawlessly:

Evening Blues (Marcus)
Winding Roads (Marcus)
Advanced three level solo (Marcus)
Ivan's Delta Blues series
Lagrima (Tarrega lesson by Kosei)
Eruption by EVH (still not up to speed, but getting there!)

And the list goes on. A personal thanks to my favorite instructors, Kris, Marcus, Ivan, Muris, Walliman, and my newest fave, Carlos. And of course, all of the other instructors - each of whom taught me a few things this past year.

Goals for next year? Maybe try to tackle some of Muris' advanced lessons. And get my recording chops down so I can enter a student collab.

Thank you again, Kris, and to all my fine brethren here at GMC!

Thanks a lot for the kind words and the one-year head's up Kizaze!

Your goal of being able to record for the collabs sounds like a very smart one - it will give you a whole new kind of experience, not comparable to practcing lessons by yourself.

Keep it up! biggrin.gif

Congrats to your anniversary and your improvement due to GMC...in the 7 month I am here I also did huge progress thanks to the great instructors here AND I can only repeat it again...The intructors are not only professional guitarists but do also know how to teach things...AND THAT IS IT ALL ABOUT !!!I used to have an intructor who was an awesome player but really didn't know how to teach things...he always just said here look !!!! do it like this !!! just look !! like I do it...It is simple !!!He just seemed to be incapable of telling me to hold the pick not completely parallel to the string for speed picking for example...And I always wanted to understand the theory behind everything and he just said just learn this you don't need this etc. ..In a way he just disrespected my lust for musical knowledge in general...could talk about this for hours... mad.gif
