Thanks Homies, you most definitely are Ze Best !! cool.gif



I'm glad you posted in here... I read some of these comments and felt like I was at a funeral.

Ben was good man, he loved bacon and donuts and hated root notes.... he will be missed terribly... WHAT? huh.gif No dude, he's right there!

Hi Guys. I just wanted to let you know that I'm going to be stepping down as a GMC Instructor for the foreseeable future. I'm not leaving the GMC community, just taking a back seat on the former activities of an instructor.

I don't want you guys to worry, nothing bad has happened ! smile.gif The recent months have taken their toll with The Reckoning album, teaching and various everyday realities of life which I'm sure is something you guys can appreciate. Even Donut Masters like me have their human limits laugh.gif So I'll be taking an indefinite break to pursue other things, which I most definitely need as I feel like I can't give you the attention and commitment you deserve and it would be unfair to continue if I've got nothing to give you guys.

I'll still be around on the forum, albeit on a more casual basis and let's face it - someone still needs to tease Gitarrero ! So don't think of me as 'leaving'.. I'll still be here, just leaving my Temple open for some of you young pretenders to seize my throne whilst I'm out exploring the mountain and finding rare donuts wink.gif

I know some of you will be upset about no more of my video chats but you've still got my lesson notes archive and I know you guys haven't got your fingers around all of these ideas yet. I know who you are ph34r.gif So, there's always some Tasks to be done and I'll always be watching !!

Right, thanks for reading.

Gitarrero, H4H.. 500 push ups now ! Quenzoz, 250 push ups just for thinking about Bacon.

Every ending is also a new beggining so I wish you the best of luck in your new begging Ben whether it be with The Reckoning project or creating a new and improved donut. You have been an inspiration to many a guitar player around here including myself, it has been my pleasure to learn from you and take part in your awesome collabs, I am definately going to miss your V-chat lessons but I am glad that you will still be around to shoot the breeze in the forums and maybe bounce some ideas off of from time to time, keep up the great playing man and thanks for all the good times!

Much love and respect! cool.gif Rich...

That's true Piotr, there was certainly nothing funny about Ben's post this time. I kept looking for the punch line... I would have even taken a punch to the head for it not to be true...

I've just been cracking jokes so no one sees a grown man cry. I'll go off later by myself somewhere and do that where no one can see...

sad.gif




I need a pint of bacon and donut flavored ice cream to drown my sadness in now... BTW, I did run across some maple syrup and bacon flavored yogurt here the other day at a local yogurt shop. Don't ask... just don't ask. I didn't, but by God it was good... and I thought of Mr. Higgins and how he would probably actually hurl at the thought of that. LOL.

Kinda sad to read this, I don't think any kind of doughnut will make this kind of read better, in a selfish aspect.

But on a more positive note, it was great to take part in your final collab! And all your crazy weird news posts and your words of wisdom. Much luck with the band and going pro. If you ever come to the states and play a set, I will have to gather some friends dust off my Reckoning shirt be like what up haters! Wish you had an original shirt? SUCK IT! laugh.gif

Keep on rocking the free world, take it by both hands, and never look back! Enjoy what the future holds Broseph!
