Hey, Randy! Good to hear from you again. I actually haven't thought about that yet...I guess I just never thought it was even in the cards at this point. I certainly appreciate the advice and the kind words though. I'm not too familiar with Infinite Guitar, so what do you think the best way to go about that whole process would be?
And I was actually just discussing the Guitar Messenger thing with Ivan not too long ago. We'll definitely be doing something (certainly together, but maybe seperate as well), we just decided that it would probably be best to wait and plan it around some kind of release.
Although, we were ALSO talking about a possible seperate collaboration video between myself and someone else who I'm super stoked on, which could bring about some other new stuff as well, so we'll have to see about that
I found Infinite Guitar when I checking out some lessons by Tom Quayle. I noticed Chris Feener, Trav Montgomery and Rick Graham are all on there, and they're all (or at least were...?) members here. Chris and Travis are usually pretty accessible via FB, YT, etc. Seeing as IG charges a subscription, I'm figuring there has to be some kinda kickback for instructors.
Looking forward to seeing some vids with you and Ivan!
PM me if there's anything more specific you could get some help with.
Infinite Guitar has some good content. I started there several years ago when I was first learning.
Tom Hess also has a great program for helping guitar instructors build a business (EGTIC, electric guitar teacher inner circle). A fair number of his guitar teacher students have built self-sufficient instruction businesses letting them quit their jobs and focus on music (that's one goal of the program). Of course, putting money in to get money out is probably not something you're super interested in, but it might be worth checking out.
Definitely looking forward to more Painted in Exile. I enjoy listening to Revitalized.
^ It's true. The Gods were pleased and the planets were aligned long enough for us to run into each other so we could finally solve this issue.....although I owed you a beer before we bought each other a beer, so I guess we're actually back to square one...
Thanks again though, everyone! I'm looking into EGTIC right now and it definitely seems interesting. I also managed to get in touch with Travis, who was kind enough to tell me who I should talk to about Infinite Guitar, so now that's my next step.
Thank you guys for all of the help and support. Let's drink beer together!
And be sure to check out Serrated Skies' new band Give Up The Goods, which features PIE's former bassist Vin! Give Up the Goods
Thanks so much, guys! Really appreciate you all taking the time to check it out, and I'm so glad you dug it.
I'm looking to teach private lessons primarily (both on Skype and in-person), so I just uploaded a new video (a bit of a left turn from the last one), for those of you who might be interested. If you are, feel free to send me an email at [email protected]!
Stealthdjentstic - Thanks a lot, man! We should be releasing the new single within the next few months, and there should be at least some kind of preview within the next few weeks, so thanks for sticking with us!
Lukifer - Nahhh you should've, man! I didn't even place in the finals, so you never know!
Ahh very much appreciated, man. I'm not sure of the criteria that they were using to judge the contest, but I would assume that my lack of views due to my last-minute entrance may have had something to do with it (even though that technically shouldn't have mattered considering that it was in before the deadline), but I'm not too worried about it. It was a fun challenge, and there's always next time!
