This is directed really to any skeptics or anyone out there still wondering if GMC works: this thread is your answer.
When I signed up for GMC 2 years ago, the epitome of my technique was the pentatonic scale. I hammered out power chords, and only knew the aformentioned scale in first position. I learned Green Day songs at half speed. Last night, I played for 400 people, playing Satch Boogie, Trilogy Suite Op. 5, and Pride and Joy. That's what I would call progress. It wasn't fast, admittedly. It took me awhile, and a lot of practice. My very first lesson was Kris' Kirk Hammett lesson. I thought that was so difficult... I surmounted it slowly. I watched the 1-on-1 videos. I haven't had a single teacher the entire time, but with GMC, I'm able to go out with a guitar, play, and have people stand around me and watch and give money... In conclusion, thanks to GMC and all the people that make it what it is!

That's so good to hear that, it is wonderful to play the songs you like. Btw I picked up the guitar cause I wanted to play Wish you where here, is there anybody out there and the solo from another brick in the wall (I still can't play that very nice).

The great thing about GMC is that we both have theory and a huuuuge lick library!
Well, and the greatest of all, the forum!
