Ben I wish you well. Your encouragement here goes without saying. I am personally a better musician thanks to you.

Keep rockin'! There is so much material here from you that your presence will still remain.

Be seeing you!

Good luck with your projects.
Good that you are not leaving completely. Maybe you could still vote if we do one of your lessons for rec!

Guys, thanks so much for all the kind words. There's too many amazing things to comment on them all individually but rest assured, I've read them all and absorbed them fully smile.gif

I will still be causing mischief on the forums and yes.. don't think you're safe from me popping up with another food thread, making everyone hungry again !!

I still intend to be around but the Instructor title is still being carried by Gabriel, Cosmin, Todd and the gang, whereas I am now a fellow guitar traveller, alongside you all biggrin.gif

Dude...das darf nicht wahr sein!

I always liked dressing up for your video collabs, and sneaking that riff in. Hard to believe that this is gonna be over now.

I always knew this day would come someday, but I hoped it would be far in the future and not now where I decided to tackle your 30 shredders lesson. The funny tueday chats are over sad.gif Maybe I'll step in for you once in a while.

Alles Gute mein Freund!

P.S.: I did the 500 push-ups like you asked. Video is uploading.

Christian, you know that you don't need my vid collabs as an excuse to dress up ? You like doing that anyway, remember ? smile.gif

You never know though.. if inspiration hits one day and if Kris is ok with it, maybe the rare collab will pop up out of nowhere in the future...? smile.gif

Actually, your collabs were the ones that inspired me cause I knew you'd laugh your hairy .... off. laugh.gif

In case that rare collab will pop up, you can expect legendary things.

Man, I had plans to blow you away with my guitar skills in one of your next collabs.

But Rich, HFH and I agreed to stand in for you in the tuesday chat.

Well, in that case.. your legendary ideas will build up until they're at bursting point and then a solo will erupt, the like of which the world has never seen ! And the outfit...... well, there are no words... cool.gif

A pic of a young german guitarist. That's all I got.

If it doesn't cheer you up then I don't know what will.

BEN! You ran out of bacon, you're not thinking straight!!

Besides that (the obvious - need of bacon) it is very good that you're still staying on the forum! smile.gif

But Ben what I think this is really about and that is that you don't want to upload a lesson for 6 months and for those months you're probably just gonna spend in a basement eating bacon and donuts meanwhile practicing 12 hours a day on voodoo guitar techniques (no idea what that is) tongue.gif

And another thing. Can I postpone the push-ups? Still stick tongue.gif

I guess it's selfish of me (us? unsure.gif ) to expect any instructor to be at GMC forever. You have left a lot of great study material for each of us. Besides, it's going to take the rest of my life to learn the 30 Shredders Lesson tongue.gif . Thanks for the lessons, chats, licks, exercises, encouragement & Zen Guitar motivation! Best of luck with the Reckoning & I'm glad you'll still be around in the GMC community! smile.gif
