I think Kris have a point, the site has grown up so beyond any expectations. And still the probable new prices seems pretty cheap in comparison two lets say to two teachers class a month.

I also have a question:

- I subscribed using bank transfer, when I renew my subscription (using another bank transfer) will I have to pay the old price or the new one?


You will unfortunately pay the new price if you use bank transfer - the only work around I can think about is for you to pay in advance for quite some time, you would have to do it pretty soon though. ( easiest is of course if you have the possibility to switch to a subscription ).

If you have more detailed questions about this please turn to [email protected]

You shouldn't compare with real life class lesson. It's a completely different service even though the goal is the same.

GMC has grown so fast because it was good AND cheap. If I had to pay 30 bucks/month instead of 9 I would seriously think twice before giving it a try. The new prices will probably slow down the new comers flux.

I hope you are going to keep a cheap fee, perhaps with limited access (no GP file or tabs, no REC, low quality video, etc...) and that the one year subscription will come down to ~10 - 15$/month max. Or give a 5 days free period to test the site with no charge.

Don't get me wrong, I am really happy with GMC and would be much more happy if the owners earned some money. I give you my opinion because I care. wink.gif

It's not really my business since the wiki responsibillity, but it's to bad this is necesary! It has gotten expensive! 29 $ a month... that's probably the most expensive since it's for the 3 month cycle, you'd need to pay almost 90$ for three months... that's quite a lot of money!

It's no critics, I'm sure this raise is necesary to keep GMC going, but welll.... it's just sad wink.gif you get my drift I hope dry.gif

The problem with that is that you could use your 5 day trial to download all the GuitarPro files.

Disallow the access to tabs and GP5 file and problem solved. smile.gif

PS: I could pay 15$ to play World of Warcraft (I am not!) which is a hobby as guitar is, so I can pay 15$ for GMC... smile.gif

Agreed! Triple prize is maybe too much. One of the reasons why so many people are joining to GMC is that it's cheap. If you increase the cost of subscription to triple, I'm sure that the amount of new members will probably be divided by at least 3. I understand that this new cost is required to keep GMC up, and, no, I definetly don't want to see it going down.

Most of the people (At least most of what I've met) are suspicious about Internet-guitar-learning-sites, and would rather have a 'real' guitar teacher. Then, if the prize of an internet lesson site raises above a 'real' teacher, then surely less people will join, and/or continue the subscription.

In short: This prize raise may cause the GMC Company to make less money than now. ph34r.gif

But then, It's just my opinion.

Damn, man! That sucks! Hahaha. I can see why it is necesary though.

I am currently in some financial problems, due to moving to a new apartment and all, and I've been thinking about cancelling my subscription, but I will NOT subscribe again with the new price, if I cancel at this time. Sorry, Kris, but that's too much for me to pay as of now.

The price levels we have discussed range from (depending on which billing cycle you choose):

most expensive:
29 usd / month (today 9,6 /month )

cheapest:
19 usd / month (today 7,5 /month )

This isn't quite set in stone yet - but to give you an impression.


30 bucks a month?

There are a handful of other tutional sites with prices cheaper than that.. do you not want to stay competitive?

I understand that it's necessary, but it is a lot to pay. If I wasn't getting free membership from updating my Wiki portals, I wouldn't be able to afford it. Maybe you should try the new prices for a month or so and see how it affects the amount of members. It could turn out to make less money than the current prices. I understand though that for the amount the site has grown in the last 3 years a price increase is necessary.

This adjustment seems very reasonable to me considering
what GMC has to offer and but yeah,
keeping the same price for existing members is really cool. smile.gif


+1...worth every penny!

As existing members we know it's worth the higher price compared to what you'd pay for the same level of information and instruction face to face. Especially since GMC doesn't charge per hour.

I don't think new members would be able to see, appreciate, and agree to this same value.

Yeh I think GMC will still be worth every penny after the price adjustment, but there will be people like me who just can't afford it.

I wouldn't pay for it, but just signed up for a year with the old price, which i find resonable for an online-teaching-site
face to face interaction is preferable but costs, i would prefer a teacher from my town with the new prices

I think the new price structure is still very reasonable.

I paid that weekly for very poor lessons from local instructors!! blink.gif
