Hello.

I just wanted to get some people's opinions on Tom Hess' guitar playing and his correspondence lessons, MCMP, and EGTIC. Feel free to post whatever you want.

Hi, I have no experience with his lessons but I did subscribe to the "practice generator" which turned out to be no more than I calculator when all said and done.

Hi alan1965,

Sorry, I am not sure what you are referring to. Are you describing a "practice generator" on the Guitar Tricks website?

No, I think he means a resource provided by Tom Hess, a guitar instructor mentioned in the OP.

Hey, Jeremy! I've heard Hess play & he's an excellent guitarist. I don't have any experience with his correspondence lessons. But I've seen video footage of his instructional seminars. Based on what I've seen, he seems like a good, sincere, involved instructor with lots of good practical advice for his students.

Hope this helps!

Not at all. Tom hess has something which he calls the practice generator, which he charges 17 dollars a month for and it is not what he claims it be be. It would be nice if gt had a program to help build a practice routine though

I'm a new student of the Tom Hess corporation and am in my second month of their correspondence lesson program. It's very expensive, but I believe that I can learn from it. I did use their "Practice Generator" and "Accelerometer" apps and I think that these might be okay for people that learn a certain way, but THE COST for these two simple apps is simply appalling. I paid about $80 CDN for a one month 'subscription' to them. The "Practice Generator" is a stopwatch/Timer that's connected to a list of practice activities and the "Accelerometer" is a metronome that lets you track your playing speed and progress. If I had paid $5 to own each of these apps I would have been disappointed, but I actually paid about $80 CDN for one month's access to them.
