Please, stop making remakes of songs already on here with the same song stripped as "Songs (Made Easy)"

We are paying for new songs, and easy stuff we can do ourselfs, or leave out anything that would be too hard from the regular song !

Thank You

I'm sure a lot of the paying members who are more at beginner level appreciate the "songs made easy" versions.

I personally think GT does a good job of releasing songs that have a good balance for different ability.

Hi there,

We definitely appreciate the feedback. We try to add new songs that appeal to a wide range of skill levels. For example, "Hey Joe" which was just released is pretty complex for newbies, while "Smoke on the Water (Made Easy)" is for the beginner who just wants to get started. There's a little something for everyone. Again, thanks for the comments!

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact us.

For all songs made easy there should be a followup closer to the origional version. This should keep everyone happy.

What he said. And vice versa.

Not sure I see the issue with the 'made easy' stuff. I mean, as many have read over the years, I've been playingfor a long time. I personally don't have a need the made easy stuff. For that matter, most of the time if I want to look at a new song, I go to the performance. Ok, Pat Travers 'Boom, Boom Out Go the Lights', I went to the intro riff lesson. Harder than it appears. Anyway, in my mind, I think about my early player brain and I'm thinking having a nice song to strum too would be handy.

Some people not only want songs and even want to know the original but they also want to get their timing down too. Chord transitions and all that.

I'm just hoping people are mindful that their need is not the same as everyone elses.
