Just out of curiosity do the instructors share an opinion on who is the best instructor?
I know who I think is the best but that tends to change daily biggrin.gif

Toughie. We have so many greats. Some really excellent ones who sadly don't make many lessons anymore though!

I don't there there is a "best" instructor. I do however think that the new lessons that are being put on here by all the instructors are SO much better than the ones from a couple of years ago. Much better production quality etc. You guys have outdone yourselves!

There are so many KILLER instructors here it's hard to say which is best. So many styles are represented so it's hard to compare them. It's really about what you are trying to learn as a player that will determine which ones you like best. If you haven't had a lesson with me yet, let me invite you smile.gif I teach a live lesson in the video chat room every Saturday @ 4pm E.S.T (United States Time) and I've love to have you there. We are learning alternate picking / speed picking currently and I look forward to working with you.

Practice!
Todd

I think this is a good thread so why dont we start sharing some ideas?

My best instructors on this site so far are Muris Varajic, Adrian Figallo, Carlos Carillo and Gabriel Leopardi because I think that they have the most melodic lessons smile.gif

What do you think guys?

I have guys that I tend to enjoy playing their lessons the most...but that is just because I enjoy that style of music! My favorites lessons are done by Lian, Trond, Gabriel, Ivan Zecic, Muris, Adrian and Ivan Milenkovic (although there is always a part in every one of his lessons that I just CANNOT play! tongue.gif)

I loooove that one, Adrian! You've got ATTITUDE!!!! biggrin.gif
With the risk of getting hit by some oven mitts tongue.gif , I would say that just because You can throw away some lightning licks in a video, it doesn't mean that You are a great instructor. To transfer Your knowledge, You must do it in a pedagogically right way too. Since I don't really know anyone else's teaching in debth except for Pedja & Ivan (which both are excellent pedagogs), I cannot state who is the best teacher teacher around. Also it depends on the students preferrable way of learning and what he wants to learn. (and a lot of other things as well)

I like to say "nobody does this better than <fill in name>." Especially for subjective valuations like this. What is best for one, is not necessarily going to be best for others.

I probably have learned more Gabriel lessons than any other single person. He really has a lot of variety, and he does a good job or performing the pieces.

But to tell you the truth, it is hard to come up with another country where guys have contributed more to GMC than the boys from Argentina. Pretty impressive. I think in that part of the world, great rhythm in your play has always been a focus, and you see that with all of them here. I mean look at Lian. He is sure a metal guy. But to me he is different than most metal guys, and I think in good ways. I wold call him more a metal influenced musician, but he has a lot of variety in his play, and it is really kind of happy play, not like "lets play metal and then go kill ourselves" type of style. I mean, growling sounds awful to me, never liked it, but when Lian did that, he actually sounded kind of musical to me. Only time I have heard growling that I thought it was ok. Still not good, but ok.

As mentioned above it's a matter of personal taste. Like fkalich said, the guys from argentina seem to be the ones with the biggest input to the site. I've learned a lot of Gabriel's lessons, right now I'm focussing on Lian's lessons, and he is my personal favourite because he is also my MTP mentor. I also love the fact that Marcus Siepen is an instructor here, though he seems to focus a biit more on his side project called Blind Guardian ;-) just kidding...
I think all instructors are great and we should be glad to have them all here!
