I like the idea, but try not to look at lesson difficulty very much when searching something to practice.

+1

often a 7 can be a 4 varying from instructor to instructor.

Average member level ratings. That is a very good idea - I must have missed that thread.
I whole heartedly agree that the Muris sweep exercise is a little bit of an eyebrow raiser when you notice it's a level 3. In some respects I can see how it is considered an "easier" sweep pattern but to me the easiest sweeps are those where it's one string in one direction and the same in the other (ie for a three string sweep, up up up down down down). However Muris' lesson includes a change in direction so that you have to kinda skip past a string (not play it twice) either on your way up or down, whichever your preference. So to do that at 160bpm semiquavers takes a lot of work to do cleanly.
Perhaps the 1 string/direction kind of sweep would be a level one ?!? tongue.gif

Having rating by members would help but not entirely
cause you just can't have 100% correct rating,
it's just a rough guide and varies from person to person. smile.gif

Personally I feel that kris himself should rate every lesson.
Member rating- I think the ratings would be too high,

the fact that it varies from person to person is just the problem that an average solves. i mean the ratings by definition isn't how hard it was for the instructor because obviously most lessons are not very hard for them. if all the very good gmcers give it a low grade and all the beginners give it a high grade what we get is what an average gmcer would think of this lesson. obviously it wont be a 100 percent accurate measurement of how hard a lesson is but its the closest i think we can get.

btw
i agree with your ranking of the sweeping lesson because learning the two shapes is 10 minutes or something and assuming i know the right motion of sweeping its just a matter of doing it a million times until im up to tempo. its all about ingraining the shape in my muscle memory. there is no real thinking or anything involved just time consuming.
(just to clarify:no, i cant sweep up to that tempo)

True, then we have one line. Then maybe it's not the same as it is now, but it would be more clear, because there's just one person rating!

I like the idea to have members rate the level of lessons.
Of course ratings are going to be very different due to the fact that we all have our strengths and weaknesses, but it might be helpful...

I think this one is rated 4 because you can learn the beginning as a beginner:
"The way we constructed this song allows you to practice it as if it where a lesson series -
starting from beginner level and ending with advanced techniques"


For Rec it should have a higher rating though, since you'd need to play the whole song tongue.gif

I agree with you guys. It would be cool for members to rate lesson difficulty one way or the other. At the end of the day it all comes down to practicing - lesson rating is just personal reference, nothing more nothing less.
