Hello Everyone,
I tripped across this site a few weeks back and played with the free lessons for a day or two and was immediately struck by the quality of the content. I have been a frustrated hacker ever since I saved my pennies and purchased a BC Rich and a 20 watt Washburn amp back in 1984. I have tried various self learning packages but was bored to tears. GMC has put together a package that hooked me immediately. The format is precisely what any aspiring player needs. I can sit for hours playing and replaying the bite sized chuncks of lessons until I get them right. I have improved more over the past two weeks than I have in the past ten years. I have that feeling of endless possibilities I had when I walked out of that guitar store back in the 80's with my first six string. Rock On!!!!
