I want to subscribe.
$5 is nothing compared to the lessons here.
BUT I cannot subscribe by credit card, and I'm under 18.
are there any other ways to subscribe?

jeez man.... go to the bank and ask for a $5.00 money order in U.S. funds.
Send it to Jon at Guitar Tricks and you'll have access for a full month.

If you like what you see, sign up for another month. Even better, get a money order for 6 months worth.

If you want to try before you buy, sign up for the monthly newsletter or click on the instructor pages.
I know I'm biased but it's a hell of a better deal than paying for a friggin $40 teacher once a week.

You can sign up by check, the instructions are here:

http://www.guitartricks.com/upgrade.php

Minimum check signup is $30 for six months. If you don't have a checking account, you can go to a drug store or bank and get a money order.

Please don't send $5 checks. It takes too much time to process a check (endorse, record, deposit, repeat) to make that a workable way to handle subscriptions.

thanks!

Jon's the main man so that would be cannot on the $5. $30 USD minimum it seems. I'm sure Jon would accept a money order from a person of any age it's not like learning guitar is only for adults.

Whatever you do, don't buy the money order from a bank. They charge enormous fees, like 2-3 bucks sometimes. Just go to a convenience store or grocery/drug store...something like that. I wouldn't pay more than $0.75 for one.

Just to clarify this btw:
According to Jon, the site owner, the minimum sign-up price is a 6 month subscription for people wanting to pay by check or money order. $30
Mainly having to do with the costs and hassles involved in processing.

It's basically identical to a cheque except it has the amount stamped on it.
There'll be a place that says 'Pay to the order of'... so just put Guitar Tricks.
If you want you can write a note on the front or back saying 'for 6 month subscription'. Make sure your contact info is on it and your username.
There's two copies...one to send and one to keep as a receipt.

We use paypal for that. Most web businesses that accept payments accept paypal, so sign up for that and you are all set. The U.S. has really bad wire transfer/electronic banking. The last time I inquired about it, there was a $25 fee to collect the $30. :eek:

I've created an account, but as I said earlier, I don't have access to a credit card, and it keeps asking for a credit card :(
