Hey there,

Finally, finally, finally some new stuff!

Lesson planner


This is something we started working on during spring this year!

Choose your level (beginner, intermediate, advanced) - then choose your preferred style. Click suggest and get practicing! If you don't like the suggestion you can click "choose another lesson".

The lesson plan will be synchronized with "Bookmarks" (which is the next big thing we have got coming). This way you will be able to save your lesson plan. Until then we suggest perhaps saving a screenshot or maybe printing the page. You can of course redo the lesson plan any time - but new lessons will constantly be added to it.

The "lesson plan" solution will most likely need some polishing - so all feedback is appreciated!

A little bonus that comes with this, is that all lessons now have a difficulty level (1-10). IMPORTANT: No one can objectively determine a level of difficulty, so this is just a very very rough guideline.

Also, from today the search feature will give you spelling suggestions. You will probably not notice this too much in the beginning - but hopefully this will be useful as the feature will be self-learning. (with a little help from the admins that is blink.gif )

Thanks for the comments biggrin.gif- as always when installing new stuff there is some turbulence.

For some of you the site might not be working quite as it should now - we are on it, though!

Hmm here's a small suggestion, how bout also making it possible to make our own lists?
as it is now, first you can only make a list of 6 lessons, and second you can only make a list of same criterions(Level and typs).

So how bout also enabling us to make our own lists? consisting any lessons we'd like! smile.gif

What a tremendous addition to the best guitar learning, and community on the web. I expect there is a lot of word of mouth advertising going on. I personnally turn on all of friends, and they are just floored. Keep up the great work. I Love it.

Hey I like the look of this. Will help me to have some sort of order and structure to my practicing routine.

If all developments are as good as this I look forward to the next one.

No it's meant as substitution lesson on the ~ same level.

In other words click "choose another lesson" if you aren't quite happy with one of the suggestions. smile.gif

Ok nice, the bookmark feature is going to make this all the more better smile.gif


On a different note. I notice alot of the lessons we have arent in there aswell , is there a reason for that ? Lessons such as Winding Roads, In the Style of Paul Gilbert and some other ones? Is that just a minor problem ?

Well spotted Eat Sleep and Jam - a lesson with very high difficulty level (9 for example) will not show up if there are other alternatives with lower level of difficulty (7 or 8 for example).

Our goal is to present a fourth "I'm god" category (after the advanced level of difficulty wink.gif biggrin.gif ), which will contain the most difficult lessons of GMC. We can't do it yet - because we don't have coverage in all music styles yet. (for example we don't have to many extremely difficult acoustic lessons yet)

The examples you mentioned are fantastic lessons - which will get a better place on the site once we have got a working algorithm to determine "most popular" lessons.
