GMC KEYWORDS HUNT COMPETITION!
Let's shape our site together!

You have probably noticed underlined words in the lessons and forum : screenshot
These are GMC Keywords and those words are clickable and offer quick explanation for various terms.


Examples : Palm muting, Fusion, Arpeggio (try clicking on the words)
______________________________________

How to enter the competition:

1. Find as many keywords which are not currently in the database (the ones that are NOT underlined and clickable when browsing the lessons, forum...) - yet should be explained.

2. Write down the short explanation for each keyword in this format : "Keyword - short explanation/description"

Example : "Palm Muting - Palm muting is a playing technique performed by placing the outer side of the picking hand, below the little finger, against the strings near the bridge. This deadens or mutes the strings, resulting in a tighter sound. This is an ideal technique for chunky metal riffs!"

3. Send us your entries to : [email protected] or via forum PM

The more entries/keywords you submit the better chances of winning!
We'll look both at quantity of newly discovered keywords and descriptions/explanations text and format.
Tip for the texts: try to explain and define the term/keyword in as shortest possible text.

Our instructors often say this - thinking about and trying to explain different guitar terms/topics, even the simplest ones, is a very good learning experience and gives you a whole new perspective. We hope that you'll get a chance to explore our lessons archive and forum more in depth and learn new things while writing the explanations for the keywords/unexplained terms you find. After the competition is over - we will also update all the keywords and add the ones that you have discovered - lets shape our site together for current and future GMCer generations!

Play with emotion. Playing with all technique and no emotion makes you boring. And most importantly, Make faces while bending.

A couple more questions.

All those definitions link up to this page https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page It seems that it only takes the definition header . So are we suppose to edit the wiki or just send you the definitions?

What are we allowed to define? Can we give a better definition of Palm Muting, if it were the case or just definitons that haven´t been created. Regardless of that, are we also allowed to make definitions not only for techniques but artists?

Kind regards,

Very good questions! smile.gif

Q: So are we suppose to edit the wiki or just send you the definitions?
A : No need for editing wiki. You just need to send in definitions in this format : "Keyword - definition"

Q: What are we allowed to define? Can we give a better definition of Palm Muting, if it were the case or just definitons that haven´t been created.
A : Let's focus primarily on definitions that haven't been created yet (the ones that are not underlined on the site).

Q: Regardless of that, are we also allowed to make definitions not only for techniques but artists?
A: Absolutely! Please feel free to send in definitions for any keywords/terms you find useful. For example : artists, music genres, theory terms, guitar parts, software terms, abbreviations and any term that would benefit from having a clickable additional explanation and that is not already included in our database.

Please let me know if you have any questions and good luck with the hunt! wink.gif
