Hey Jon, just a thought. Is it possible that key segments of Tom and Anders' Hendrix lessons could still be shown in the 'Techniques' section without breaching the copyright restrictions which apply to complete songs? I agree with Rich Maggio that it is a real shame to lose their wonderful lessons. Best wishes, Steve

Maybe the license "pull" had something to do with the video game "Rocksmith" adding Jimi stuff ?

I agree Steve.

Given the situation, wouldn't it be fairer for the GT Song List to include the dates at which each song licence is up for renewal? This might help people prioritise their practice program and avoid leaving them in the lurch.......

It's the reason I renewed my account today.

The problem is not isolated. The same thing happened with Gary Moore a few years ago as I was in the middle of learning one of his songs.

There are no other songs in jeopardy of being removed, you don't have to plan your practice schedule around songs going out of license. Other than this, nothing bad is going to happen.

I can't help but notice that you said a few years ago.

But John said, "This is an isolated problem," as in this CURRENTLY is an isolated problem.

That's how I took it anyway.

Jimi must be rolling over in his grave

Sad to hear this, I'm sure Jimi loved to share his music, sadly others don't :(

We hope you took advantage of the Jimi Hendrix contest we ran. We weren't able to tell you that the songs were in jeopardy of being taken down, but that contest was our way of giving you a hint to watch them now. The winner of the contest will be picked January 5.

We have some new songs from a different artist about to be announced in mid-January. That announcement will be as exciting as this one is sad. Hopefully, when we announce those new songs, you will be so happy you will be able to forgive this loss.

I'm really sorry I wasn't able to keep these great Jimi Hendrix songs for you. Please know that I really tried hard on this and I do everything that I can to get you great songs.

I guess they resolved that because they added a Gary Moore song just a couple of weeks ago..."Still got the Blues for you".

There are some insane parts of that solo at the end :).
