Okay Guitar.com users, get ready. We’re about to launch our latest version. Much will change with this updated version. Our goal here was to bring back a great deal of the content that was removed back in 2007 and at the same time, introduce some new content for G.com users to check out.
We’ve brought on a few new “partners” that will be providing us with new lessons, educational tips and other instructional “how-to’s” to help you become a better guitar player. The newest feature will be a section called “New to Guitar.” This section will be for beginning guitar players looking to get an introduction into the world of guitar. This section will have everything from a glossary on the many terms related to guitars as well as a few beginner guitar lessons. We’ll also be adding more content for intermediate guitarists and then we’ll follow up with some more advanced content in the not-too-distant future.
Over the course of the next few weeks, we’ll be adding more features and additional benefits to the site. However, we want to alert you to the simple fact that there is going to be a great deal of change coming. The “Web Cred” feature that is built into the discussion forums will most likely be going away. We can’t find a reason to continue this element. The Musician’s Friend cooperative program that was started largely in concert with the Web Cred feature has long since lapsed. We will also be putting a post up on the discussion forums that will ask for a few users to help with the beta-testing process. You can email us with your thoughts and comments as well. As we’ve been part of numerous updates and changes to Guitar.com since 2002, we look forward to hearing your comments and insights. Thanks for visiting with us here at Guitar.com – Jim D’Addario
