Does anyone have a "premium" account with them? If so, does the quality of the lessons justify the monthly fee? Right now they are offering a "special" of just $8.95 a month instead of the normal $14.95. (Without the upgrade, one can only watch the introductory lesson, which often consists of an overview of the piece or technique in question.)
I have a premium account. Signed up and after the first evening I haven't been back.
As usual with any video lessons they do NOT substitute for lessons from a competent teacher.
!Videos are not a way to get better at playing the guitar.!
They may be thought provoking but they will not come close to getting a good teacher.
In the end all you're doing is watching videos.
The only real way at getting good at playing the guitar is to get a good teacher and stay with that teacher for years, and years.....blood sweat and tears my friend... that's all music understands.
Not a bunch of videos and now magically you're better.
Just ask your self, how many of the people who are there "teaching" these songs do you think got to where they are in their playing by watching videos?
I bet you all of them took lessons for years and years.
On another note, the reason they themselves are there is because they get a small amount, just pocket change, for doing those videos.
