What about you post your take of a lesson with a poll. Only instructors can vote. You have a uniform ranking of your take from like 1 to 5
5 perfect
4 excellent
3 average
2 you need to work harder on it
1 unsatisfactory


this way it isnt bound to any particular instructor - they can vote as they will you know what I mean?


I agree, that would make most sense, maybe we could choose some standard lessons for each level.
Like, if you can play this lesson level 3, if you can play that lesson(more difficult) level 4 and so on. When tis whole thing finally gets live students will be "delighted":)

I absolutely love this idea - very well done. I just need a mike and free recording software biggrin.gif

speaking of the idea of being tested on theory. Why not have the instructors actually create tests on music theory for each lesson? Have a multiple-choice test or a "free-response" type feedback test to see if we really understand what in the world we are doing. This would /definitely/ make the members 100% better every time they completed a lesson.

You would have
(1) Guitar playing / feedback from instructors
(2) A theory test to hone your skills / feedback from instructors about the theory
(3) An excellently well-versed community on all aspects of guitar playing
(4) Stronger community

What a fantastic idea you all have brought up - I'm excited about the direction this will take!

I support the idea of more points of view and more things to rate - feeling, technique, creativity, theory...

Btw. can we have some admin/senior update on this topic? In terms of how you decided about those tiltles, rules etc. We are information hungry:D

I think that's a good idea. Perhaps a score for completing the lesson successfully and bonus points for feeling, technique etc.

Would love some feedback on the progress of this program.

i love the idea. I love the ranking system. sign me up now lol

i also like the idea of having bonus titles along side your ranking for being fluent in a technique like legato, sweeping, etc. and the idea of adding the genre to your rank too, like metal, jazz, classical etc. but these would not be given more thought maybe.

and although some people have figured out that if you average the scores you cant ever get the top ranking because your average will pull your score down (or maybe you can? ive not thought about it that much and figured it out). but if you cant this might be a good thing. maybe when you get to a point where you find you can complete the level 10 lessons quite easily you become legible for guitar god trials. and have the instructors set out a series of trial challanges and if you complete these to a high standard you are awarded the highest possible rank. just an idea, just putting that out there. although, if you are that good, stop worrying about your gmc rank and go out there earn some serious cash for being absolutely amazing on the strings!!

Maybe members could be awarded a downloadable official GMC certificate for each level reached.

Meh.. and what price would it have in real world? I think that just an update of your progress data in your signature should suffice

None at all. But it would look good on my wall ... and it might help to inspire me to get to the next level.

biggrin.gif:D ok then:) Since my wall is filled with flags (and in future hopefully with guitars) but I can agree that for some it could be nice addition:)

But we can wish for everything, the real question is what effort would have to be put into this to do it on regular basis so everyone could have this if wanted... Hmm maybe prepared excel sheet connected to database?

I had a dream tonight (yes, I dream about GMC). I dreamt that I was surfing the forums, and under people's avatar was their new titles instead of the "GMC:er" title.
And below the postcount, there was a new line called "Guitarpoints: [insert number here]"

I hope Kaznie won't mind me using his post as an example and demonstration of my photoshop skillz? tongue.gif

I like that idea Canis smile.gif We will definitley have the title just where you showed it, the guitarpoints might take some more work!

We have had some more thoughts on this and are shaping it up - expect to see some info in the next week or two, and thanks for all the excellent suggestions!

Thanks for the feedback Andrew. One more suggestion. There appears to be reduced participation in the monthly challenges. I guess members are busy with lessons, collabs etc. Perhaps the monthly challenges could somehow be tied in with the endorsement program.
