Dear friends,

This is quite a difficult post for me to write, but I have decided to leave GMC.
My schedule is getting quite busy, and a growing stack of unfinished projects made me take that difficult decision.
I have learned a lot and enjoyed working at GMC for the last 2 years and a half. I will always remember my time here and will miss being part of such a talented staff.

I'd like to thank Kris for giving me a chance by hiring me as an instructor.
Thank you to my fellow instructors, you have been such an amazing influence in my playing!

And most of all, thank you who are reading this. I have made real friendships here and know that my departure does not mean that I am closing the door on the relationships I have established here. Don't hesitate to keep in touch via email and thanks for everything that you are to me!

Much love,

David

David, good luck with whatever you decide to do. A stack of projects is always a good thing to have, just don't let it get you down smile.gif I usually don't respond to these kinds of posts, people come and go, but you've made a really big impact here and I've learned a lot from your lessons smile.gif Thanks. And don't be a stranger, stop by the forum now and again.

This is sad news David, although we must all make choices at some time in our life! Your lessons have been inspirational to me and really helped my grasp onto Modal applications.
I wish you well in all your future projects and hope that you will be back at GMC one day!
I know I won't be the only one who will want to express their thanks for all your amazing lessons here!
Thank you!!!

This has sadened me since the day I got the news from you. It will feel very empty here without you, and to say that you have been a good guy to work with would be quite an understatement.

I wish you best of luck with your projects and musical career, and I hope that one day we will be able to do that song collab we have spoken about...

/Kris

One of the reasons I joined GMC was that I was influenced by many instructors with great talent and techniques
and one of them was you,David.

I would really have liked to have you here in GMC but I guess it cant be.

As the other guys said come in the forum sometimes when you have the time.

Good luck with whatever you plan in the future smile.gif

Sad news! sad.gif

I'm really sorry that you are leaving!...
But I would still like to wish you good luck with all of your future plans,
and hopes everything works great for you... Which I'm sure it does rolleyes.gif

I have really enjoyed the last few months with you as my mentor in the MTP.
And I of course hope you could stop by GMC to just say hello sometime.

Cheers ... and good luck! smile.gif

Man, this place is gonna miss you lots. You're an inspiration to many, including myself and you're not just a talented musician but a talented teacher. I'm sure I don't just speak for myself when I say that your lessons, collaborations and interaction in the forum have been of the utmost help to me to improve as a guitarist and overall musician.
I'll just have to make sure I pester you on facebook and the likes wink.gif

And I haven't forgotten... I still intend to send you some better coffee!! laugh.gif

All the very best David

sad news man, many instructos went offline and just stopped looking at gmc and stuff but i dont remember anyone that was this into gmc leaving, your surley gonna be missed.
i hope youll still post and check up on us sometimes, and if you ever need some programming tips and im guessing thats part of the reason your leaving dont hesitate to ask(were facebook buddies if you dont remember lol).
im sure we will catch you online from time to time, after all
you can get the instructor out of gmc but i doubt you can get gmc out of the intructor;)

David, I remember when you started working at GMC (Metalhead lesson was killer biggrin.gif) and you´ve always been a very big and kind help for everyone. I loved your collaborations and comments. They motivated me so much and pushed me to get a better guitarist. I won´t write more because I´m gonna cry. laugh.gif
Thank you for the work you´ve done here at GMC and for the nice time we passed with you! I wish you all the best for your future!
Goodbye David. smile.gif
