GMC's REC (recognition) program goes LIVE!

Long awaited REC program has just seen the light!, and we must say it looks like a huge success, not even 24 hours have gone by since the announcement and we already have loads of vid submissions being graded, and many more on their way!

If you still haven't heard about it, check what Theory Instructor Andrew Cockburn has to say about it:

"The GMC Recognition Program (REC Program for short) is the first step towards some sort of a GMC diploma. The idea behind it is that as a member of GMC you can have a validated rank at the website based on a record of your playing ability, as adjudicated by the instructors. Members will have their rank displayed as a title below their Avatar. More than that though, it is an incentive to practice, improve and complete lessons, and feedback to know that you are playing as well as you hope you are!

We wanted to keep the initial idea simple and work on it over time - thanks to all who provided input into this program - if you don't see your idea in here, we may well add it at a later date!"

So how does it work? Simple!

  • Pick a Lesson and Learn it
  • Video yourself playing it
  • Submit it for grading
  • See your points added to the score table and get your level badge
  • Keep doing this to build a validated record of your progress
