Hello my friends smile.gif
Today, I want to share an experience (as well as a suggestion for GMC) with you!
I've started playing the guitar a year ago and immediately joined GMC. Two times I started the MTP program, but wasn't able to finish it. It was not at all Ivan's guilt!!
I regularly jam with a friend who started the same time as me - about two month ago I noticed that he was far better than me! As lead as well ass rhythm guitarist. Since my GMC account expired, I asked myself if 30 euro really were worth it, if I learned lessons only half-hearted, because they are too difficult for a guitar newbie! I felt somehow stuck at a very low level.

Therefore I sought through the internet, found other guitar online lessons. There the very first steps were split in a lot of lessons. Most of it I already knew, but I worked through these lessons very accurately. I concentrated for a month on the rhythm guitar. And yeah, I'm now able to play a chord progression with various chords and with various strumming patterns in a natural way smile.gif I really feel comfortable on this now and found a new motivation to play more guitar in my holidays.

Don't understand me wrong. If anyone asks me what is the best guitar online site, I'd tell them "GMC" without hesitation. On the whole internet I wasn't able to find people like you, such a lovely and competent community, such carrying instructors with such creative lessons. Although, for real guitar newbies, there aren't any lessons to start, and if one has no base, it's difficult to pursue the lovely lessons here on GMC.

I'll renew my subscription in two month, when I've worked through the beginner lessons of the other online site. But I'm glad, I've found my problem and now really can begin to rock cool.gif

I'm glad you're progressing nicely. Most often, you don't really notice your own progression smile.gif

Kristian, I worked through these lessons, it was a nice beginning for the first two weeks, but after that I needed the basics of the following months ;-) GMC has great lessons, even for beginners, which are extremely simple but great in a musical way. I wanted to learn the guitar only by using GMC, but GMC has not the complete structure to help a newbie wink.gif

Okay Fusar, I get what you mean. I think we could have some "having played for two months" -newbie lessons, they would really rock! smile.gif

Maybe some really basic lessons to play songs using only 3 open chords would help people who are completely new to guitar.

I remember the very first thing I learnt about guitar were the basic open chords with a friend who taught me how to play a couple easy Springsteen songs. (Singing too! smile.gif)

Maybe a good schedule would be: basic open chords > basic barre chords > powerchords > pentatonic scale > major scale
But I'm no expert so I could very well be wrong and other approaches would be much better in the long run.
