Excellent message Cos! This is the first thing that we say to each new member that we have here but we note that some of you are a bit shy or think that aren't good enough to post a video (or even to turn on your webcams during the Vchat sessions) and I must say that Cosmin's GMC analogy is perfect to describe how much we can help you. I hope that this video and thread encourages more GMCers to share their videos here! smile.gif

Guilty! smile.gif

I can't believe I just posted this & then went straight to this thread.

It's very difficult (for me) to step out of my comfort zone & upload a video of my playing. The same is true for pressing that camera button in the video chats. But I do know that the only way to get helpful advice is for the instructors to see & hear my progress. Not only are the instructors knowledgeable but I can't tell you how much helpful advice I've received from the members here at GMC. And I wouldn't have received that advice if they hadn't seen & heard my playing.

Thank you for posting this because I definitely needed to hear this! smile.gif

Great message, Cosmin!!!
I think for many people it's not about they are shy to post some videos. It's very hard to believe that in this community it's totally different from other sites. If you upload a video with "errors" nobody will "kill" you or laugh at you because all we are here to learn something. To share videos with your playing it's a good way to receive the help of instructors because they know how to change bad things in good things. But it's hard to understand and do this thing. If I say it's easy to change the thinking I would be a hypocrite smile.gif

People's mentalities are influenced A LOT by social factors. Unfortunately, our society is filled with people that hide their own weaknesses by laughing at others who are trying and thus, creating a very bad thinking habit for those who wish to improve deep inside, but are too scared of what society might say when they expose their works, in whatever field.

GMC is a society that is different smile.gif We all help each other and the progress of one is the progress of many.

It sounds like a utopia, but what if the way in which other societies would function on the basis of this model? It would be the ideal world smile.gif

Let's cherish what we have here and work with it.. so WHERE ARE YOUR VIDEOS? biggrin.gif

Good topic Cosm smile.gif It's a huge problem of society but I think it's not that new. The only difference is now You can get trolling for free with no responsibility from the other side. But...guitar gods get their portion of hate too so...why should any student by shy at the stage of learning how to play smile.gif

thanxs for the video cosmin!

I am a member of GMC since 2008 (with a break in between) and my day and night video is the first video I published here... and I was very nervous when I posted it.

Its not about being afraid of critics its just feeling a little bit uncomfortably....

As Darius says, the red light always brings some anxiety with it - for me and him probably, I daresay because we wish for the take to be as good as possible and to bring the best in us, even if it may be an unconscious feeling - so don't worry, it's something that can be controlled in time and the more you do it the less it will bother you smile.gif
