Hi guys, just realised that one year ago my second lesson at GMC Little finger workout was published. I am happy to see that a lot of members still practice this lesson, so it really proves to be useful smile.gif

More than a year ago I was checking Myspace pages and found info on Muris page about teaching at GMC, and decided to give it a try and apply. I borrowed a camera and recorded a test video. It happened that I got in, and here I am smile.gif

One year after I have nothing but positive experience here. GMC happens to be a nice and healthy place for learning and hanging out. Have to say that during the previous year I learned a lot and improved my playing, since I had to practice a lot to be able to record lessons well, so it proves the saying that the best way to learn is to teach smile.gif

Since I am better with music than with words, I will just add this: I am proud to be a part of GMC community smile.gif

Thank you all for being so kind and supportive smile.gif

Cheers
Dejan

It's awesome to have u here Dejan! Your acoustic lessons made me dust off my old nylon string guitar and learn the A minor etudes from Aguado and Guiliani and the Greensleeves lessons which were the easier ones to keep my finger picking on a decent level.

And I love how your workouts have a classical feel to them, it's much more fun to practice! biggrin.gif

Happy anniversary, and I hope you'll stay with us for another... decade cool.gif biggrin.gif

Ahhh the "little finger workout" it put me on speaking terms with my pinky laugh.gif laugh.gif It is a great lesson Dejan and I still visit it from time to time when my pinky and I are not on the same page. I think it's one of the best exercises on GMC.

Hope to see many more wonderful lessons from you in the new year smile.gif

I am glad you like the bass line, when I make electric lessons and recording and mixing, if the groove don't make my body move it is not good, if I cannot sit still while listening it means it's good biggrin.gif
