Hi GMC'ers,

This is your chance to help identify lessons that GMC has very few of, or none at all. I'm looking at style categories rather than particular artists or bands. Some that I have identified are:

Folk Example
Folk Rock Example
Reggae Example
Country Rock Example
Country Blues Example
Rock Ballad Example
Celtic Example
Psychedelic Rock Example
Rock 'n Roll Example
Rockabilly Example
Southern Rock Example
Surf Example
Bossa Nova Example
Dance/Disco Example

Also, are there workshop lessons that you might consider helpful, for example, a modes workshop or an improvisation workshop. So give me your suggestions.

Please let me know what you want. The number of responses we get will determine what lessons you get.

I'm sure our talented GMC instructors will then be able to produce these lessons. This is a very good chance to broaden the choice of lessons for the GMC site, and ultimately, broaden your guitar knowledge and skills.

This thread will be open for TWO WEEKS only, and the results will be published in a follow-up post.

Thanks to Rokchik for her assistance with this, and to Kris for his enthusiasm for a poll to be conducted.

A good idea may be to put a youtube link next to your suggestions. Maybe a song that you think best represents what you are looking for? It'd be even easier to produce lessons for the suggestions that way wink.gif

I think you should focus on recruiting more instructors from Argentina.

I realy like the melodic ballads. Sometime this site tends to the shred site, but I often like beatiful ballads (like Zakk Wylde style lesson from Gabs) better then just shreds. This also gives beginner a good handle to keep playing.

like this, Zakk himself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYMupc564zE

edit: this example isn't exactly what I'd like, but the first part is. Afterwards it gets a bit more shreddie, what makes it not for beginners biggrin.gif

Hi DR,
The instructors often ask for Youtube links when lesson requests are made, so I was looking at that as being one of the final steps in this exercise. The list I gave are only examples of what I thought was missing, GMC'ers may come up with many more. If you're unfamiliar with any style you can check Wikipedia, from which you can find examples (artists) and then check them out in Youtube. Some of the styles in the list are very familiar though. What styles are you unfamiliar with?

right, we really have a scarcity of this stuff, need to cut back on the southern rock and celtic, to make room for more of this.

Kris....I think the metal genre diehards tend to basically only like that, and also tend to be very vocal. I know, because I do so many lessons (anything so long as the word funk is not involved) and I see the names of who is learning what. I learn a lot of metal, but I don't think we have a scarcity here. We do of a lot of those items on that list.

Agreed, we don't have a scarcity of metal. We currently have about 150 Metal lessons (and 70+ shred lessons). And with the number of instructors who produce metal lessons, they will grow quickly.

Id say just about 99% of the list wink.gif

I rarely venture away from fusion, prog metal, classical music and thrash metal, you gotta realise that many people have a favourite type of music and don't listen to "everything".

Though i just mentioned the youtube links for ease of use..it kind of beats- copy paste into wikipedia...copy paste into youtube...scroll...guess....click...

Even if the instructor is unfamiliar- they can just click the link and create a similar lesson right away...

But still- this is your thread Sir, i didnt mean to tread on your toes wink.gif

It would be nice to see some more Death Metal lessons.

And not to pick a specific section of music, but more "In the Style of Lessons" would help cover a variety of those categories.

I would like to see some In the Style of - Buckethead
Jason Becker
Steve Morse
Guthrie Govan


And some others just to name a few smile.gif

I think we have an abundance of metal already, but that's just me. smile.gif

QUOTE ("Steve Vai")
Start by playing something - a bend, a riff, a scale, a song - very slowly; if you make a mistake, start over; do this over and over, until you can play it flawlessly - and I do mean flawlessly - many times in a row. Next, gradually increase the tempo. Eventually you'll be flailing like a madman.
