I'd like to make a few requests about the bookmarks section of the site. It would be really cool if eventually we could move the folders around and reorganize them. Also it would be nice to be able to organize lessons (within folders) by difficulty or instructor, or just alphabetically. Lastly, I noticed that when I was trying to edit the name of a folder while watching a lesson, some of the letters triggered functions like the metronome, which of course is a nice feature, but it shouldn't do that when you're typing.

I'd recommend http://www.xmarks.com/ as an alternative. It syncs your bookmarks on every computer you use. Bookmark a new lesson at work and it will be on your computer when you get home.

I've got a GMC Lessons folder in bookmarks and then a sub folder for bass lessons and I put the difficulty beside each lesson.

Definitely not - well spotted, reporting it right away.

Also, I agree that even more control over bookmarks would be great to have in the future.

As I am but a noob here I am not sure if this is the appropriate forum to post my observations about the user interface experience in general? Since it seems there is change in the air, now is probably as good a time as any to do so.

The only suggestion I would make is in the video player itself. It isn't an earth shattering thing and I may well be the only one who even considers it a little irksome but here goes!

On the right we have the backing track list. Its title, if too long, is not visible. It doesn't scroll or allow you to resize to make it so. I may be stretching things a little by assuming it is a descriptive title and often contains things like bpm count etc. Since I am sure I am not the only one who flits back and forth between different lessons I am sure it will just make the experience just that little bit more comfortable by perhaps having the title scroll as it is being played - à la regular mp3 player?

That said. Keep up the good work! Apart from that little quibble I have been most impressed with the thought that has been put behind every facet of the design here to make it a most excellent ride and continues to get even better ...

I look forward to any and all improvements on the drawing board for the future.

BTW If you are looking for an alternate term for Wiki then how does "Repository" sit with you? That might be too big a word though, eh? wink.gif In light of that, a better suggestion could be that of "The Vault" .... Now I am getting carried away. Anywho.

Also too, I think the original banner font for 'GuitarMasterClass.net' is more striking than the proposed one in the sneak peak. All caps doesn't really pop as it does now already. Excuse me if I over step my bounds, dear sir.

[EDIT] >> Doh! Found the answer to my woes! Just click the arrow, young man. Click the arrow. Well I ain't a clicker. I am more of a click-and-drag kinda guy ...

This new design looks absolutely cool, can't wait to see it go online smile.gif I also think some more control about bookmarks might be a good thing by the way.

PS: There is just one flaw in the new design, I am not sure if it is a good idea to put a "Slow Blues" Lesson in the "Latest in Metal guitar lessons" category wink.gif

looking good! The green snot colour wouldn't be my taste, but whatever you're having yourself.. like a few people have said, maybe offer a choice of styles.

In terms of functionality, there's a good few things that come to mind, in general, you could probably make it more funky and easy to use with more ajaxy type things. like for example, bookmarking a lesson could be done without having to reload the whole page.

Looks great Kris! I think the GMC logo should be more prominent though. It kind of gets lost in the shuffle with all that stuff going on!

I like it. It's got attitude, it's clean, and the layout seems easy to navigate through. Bring it on!

Well I dare not give any more estimations since my last one was wrong - but I can inform you on the status.

* We are running two servers in parallel, the new (and more powerful) one has the new site version and is currently being tested and worked on. Having two servers is expensive so this yet a reason why we want this to be done as soon as possible.

* This has turned out to be much more than just a site re-design, we have changed a lot of the underlying scripts/systems. This will hopefully make future GMC development quicker and less painful.

I am quite nervous about how this will turn out as it is the biggest change we have ever done to GMC (on a short-term, users will only notice the difference in design though).
