Some are free there Chief. People put their time and efforts in to make these for you. Dont be cheap and pay your 5 bucks and quit whining.
Dont shoot yourself in the head.

Four years ago I couldn't hardly stand on my guitar legs. Today I can sweep, my tapping is pretty good, my overall knowledge of guitar is vastly improved. Not to mention the great people I've met here in the forum. The five bucks will seem like nothing once you are on the inside. ;)

I signed up here quite a while back. Then I left for a while and eventually came back. Once I came back and realized that this site was indeed the best and had the best group of people as well, I signed up for high bandwidth. Sometimes I find myself posting or chatting when I should be playing. :D

I dunno, I like it here. The people here really know their material well so if you've got a question the chances are there's someone that can tell you what you want to know. Furthermore the lessons do what they do quite well. I don't find $5 to be hard to dish out since it's only once a month and I figured if I can feel good about paying $5 on ebay for "stuff" froms some guy's pocket, then I should have no quarrel with putting that same amount towards something like the guitar... or at least something that involves the guitar. Any who, there you have that. Just my opinion though. Not everyone's gonna like the same websites, so, y'know.

I believe there is text. Last time I checked there was a written description of the lesson as well as tab. What do you want for nothing? :rolleyes:

Well that is not actually true.
When this site was free:

1) there was no video at all

2) there was a daily cap on the number of MP3s you could download (and boy did we get some crap for that, even though it was free)

3) the vast majority of lessons have text and tab.

4) the sight was loaded with pop-up adds and banners to try and pay for the bandwidth served (and boy did we get some crap for that, even though it was free)

5) If you don't like it, quit wining, you know where the door is !

Maybe now would be a good time to ask your self "what have I contributed to GT ??"

If you want to pay for the upkeep of GT, Im sure Jon would: 1) let you and 2) be overjoyed to make the GT free again ! It would probably only cost you a couple of grand a month. Oh, did you not realize bandwidth and web housing on a site that gets 5-10 thousand hits a day costs money.

Due to the MPA lawsuit craziness, we've had to move the tabs out of the free access areas to keep from being shut down by lawyers. Not much else we could do... Most pure tab sites have been wiped out completely! Sorry 'bout that.

Just send a money order. I think there's instructions on the sign-up page.
