The Student Instructors Portal


Do you want to be a Teacher as well as a Student?

We have some awesome instructors here at GMC, but it doesn't stop there - we also have some very talented and advanced students as well. Everyone has something that they can teach to others. Different people have different perspectives and 10 people will teach the same skill in 10 different ways - one of these ways may work for someone that has missed the point in the 9 other ways!

The idea of this page is to generate a community of Student Instructors that produce high quality lessons to pass on their insight to the GMC students.

Metallica Style Riffing, by Quadrium

"Now you can learn riffing in the style of Metallica."

Improving Picking Speed, by Maharzan

"Okay, I sent this particular video to one of my friends/student and he felt an improvement in his picking technique, clean, accurate. So just wanted to post this here too as I am super excited its working for others as it worked for me. While there are tons of exercises out there, I just compiled 3 basic Alternate Picking exercises that seem to work."

In The Style Of Rammstein, by Gitarrero

"This lesson is based on Rammstein's song "Ohne Dich", a great ballad with the best Rammstein lyrics, period. But that's just my opinion. The song and this lesson are in Drop D tuning, therefore it can be played with two fingers, so it is a lesson for starters. It is also good if you want to impress your friends and tell them you can teach them a Rammstein song in no time. Try it, it will work."
