Hello to all fellow guitarists who have travelled here over the years - I have some news for you!... expand
I'd like to first of all thank those who have supported the site, the artists and the customers, and even those just here to check out a free lesson or two.
The last year or so has seen a drop in new lessons posted to the site, and this is for 1 reason alone, the website and things in general around here, are getting rather out dated, and there is a tremendous amount of work and time required to do something that most sites only need 2 minutes to do. Delays on some shop orders, and other such inefficiencies are 'Not Good Enough' not for me or you. The site is also not optimised for the increasingly popular tablet/phone market. So for these reasons, we are planning to launch a NEW website soon, built from scratch, using the latest software to make adding content a breeze. However, the 'shred' guitar community is a relatively small one, and all of the profit from this website has always been put back in to redevelopment, so we're going to need your help
In the coming week we will be posting a crowd-funding project to help raise the funds for a redesign. The new site will be sleek in design, fast to load, dynamic to your needs (whether PC/Tablet/Phone/whatever) fresh with new content added all the time via multiple contributors, easy to browse and with all the usual social networking features built in. Furthermore we will be expanding the site beyond the realms of just 'shred' We will also be offering a lot of great things from the shop at reduced prices to ensure we hit our target and able to redesign the site. There is around 500 static pages that will need converting, which will be a lot of work. Keep an eye on the site - as soon as the crowd-funding project is live we will be posting a lot of links to it, to help re-launch the site.
