I remember I was checking out sites that came up after I searched for online guitar lessons... and I saw a video of Kris showing the basics of tapping. It was on some kind of second-rate guitar teaching site tongue.gif no where near the awesomeness of GMC.

But anyway I lurked around here for a month or two before finally signing up... that was about a year and a half ago now... and I must say I haven't been using GMC to its greatest potential until recently though. And I am very happy with my progress over the past few months.

Did there used to be a video out there of Kris and some kid he was teaching playing some stuff? I seem to remember stumbling upon it years ago, but I might be delusional??

For me it was complete accident, i was looking up some chord structures for a song i was working on, when i went to close the page i accidently hit a link that sent me here.

After a few days of reviewing some of the free vids, and community postings. I knew i had to be a part of this growing community of like minded individuals.

I then set about putting together a vid to send to Kris for my application process. Needless to say after listening to Muris, Ivan, and David i was rather intimidated. I was on pins and needles waiting for a reply. When i got the letter from Kris i was so excited to be accepted.

Here was a place for me to pass on some words of wisdom, and do what i am passionate about. I know i am no Muris, or Ivan, or David. But you have to understand that the instructors do more than teach the students. We instructors are teaching eachother. Everyone has such diverse idea's about what playing guitar is all about sometimes we get narrowminded in our viewpoint. But when any instructor here opens my eyes to the other possibilites that i wouldnt ordinarily think about it gives me ideas into other avenues of approaching the instrument.

I can say for sure that just by being a part of this community my own playing has improved 1000% Just tackling some of Muris's speed lessons has boosted my accuracy and speed tremendously. Learning some of Ivan's lessons has given me new ideas for blues type playing and i am starting to develop a sense of thinking outside my comfort zone which most guitarists need to improve. Learning some of David's lessons has given me alot of insight into delivery, tone, and the need to make every note count even if you are only playing a couple of notes.


I do not regret my decision to get involved here, sure this past year of my life has had alot of mis-adventures not allowing me to put the time i want to put in here. But i aim to remedy that situation in 2009.


Daniel

I was lurking through this site for a week before joining...
So it can't be said it was the one video that made it... but if I should name it... it'd be Nocturnal Vision wink.gif and the fact on youtube there're so many versions of this lovely masterpiece. What I love most in it? Its passion....

Nevertheless, I took a deep look inside here before joining - and I'm quite sure I took a proper decision smile.gif

It was only about a month after I got my guitar, I was looking around for some exercises and found a page advertising "Kristopher's Method" (no kidding), which was the contents of Kris's original DVD which is no longer available. Through that I found my way to GMC, and once I saw unlimited access+all you can eat pricing=no brainer!

Now we're like Sears, Roebuck (in US) used to be: If we don't have it, you don't need it!
