Hello Admin,

I just finished Christopher's GF2 course focusing on music theory and think it's a shame to have discontinued it altogether. The only way to even know about it seems to be through Chris himself. I finished GF 1 & 2 with both Anders and Lisa... and still had a lot of questions about music theory because those courses dole out theory in bite sized pieces in anything but a thorough logical progression. In contrast, Christopher's GF2 course lays it all out - each lesson building on the previous lessons with no gaps. It therefore complements the existing GF courses perfectly.

How about making it a highly visible supplement to the core curriculum? I think that would be of great utility to beginners.

I 2nd that amen. Why can't I see Chris gf2 course in his list of lessons? Seems nuts to be buried away deep. The favourites aren't great either as can't really arrange how you'd like so would like to start Chris gf2 and easily come back to where left off without spending 50 clicks.

[p]It's still available. It's only discontinued in the sense that the newer versions are more visible on the Core Learn System. Every so often GT updates the content with newer production standards. My course was done in 2009 with the tech available back then, so it's pretty dated looking now!

And it's a benefit to the users & the site that GT has different instructors with different approaches for different guitar learners with different learning styles.

Thanks for the positive feedback!

All the tutorials in the course are in my directory.

https://www.guitartricks.com/instructor.php?input=155014

And if you click on any one of them it will take you to the course. The course navigation is on the right lower side of the page.

But maybe a link to the course on my directory is something I can find out about.

The favorites are sometimes hard to work with. I personally use my browser history & favorites!

Been posting, asking for, and waiting for years for GT to make what should be a simple modification to Favorites. Give us, in Favorites, the same capabiltiy found in browsers... arrange links/files according to personal preference, create folders and sub-folders, etc.

Sigh. Maybe someday.
