    This deal is too good to pass up.............Its worth it at $40 a month, $20 is a steal

    The webinars, unfortunately are hard for me to catch, so I watch the re-runs - the benefits,we can talk about non lesson playing items that are huge benefits, things like amps and settings that are a great help and missing for many of us. Reality, some of us just want to turn an amp on and play, we may be gear heads, but not tweakers

    The golden ticket - oh heck yeah, thats a benefit beyond value, I cant even figure out which one I wanna get, its like being in a candy store

    All access pass- Heres what I see with that, I can try out lessons, and I can see ahead of time if I am ready for it. An example, rut busters, 10 minutes into it, I knew if I bought it now, it would sit on the shelf for a while, so I move to something else that is more of a benefit to my education.
    And, if I get into a rut, I may swing over to the little wing lesson just for kicks

    My only question....................with the Golden Ticket, will there be an option to pay some extra to get the physical DVD and Manual if we want ?

    Good question. I don't think I've seen @Griff mention that.

    It's in the "I'm working on it category."

    For a long time, I haven't separated things out with my fulfillment company. It'll take some time to get things all worked out and get the new shopping cart up and running. But it's in the "working on it" category instead of the, "Gee, I had not thought of that" category at least :)

    awesome..............this new program I think will be a game changer. I already own most of the courses, some I started, some I havent touched. But even when I have all of them, the extra access to the webinars will be a huge learning experience

    I have found that the streaming works quite well on my phone. So far, all the live versions that I've attended (all but 1 I think), I've listened to either all or in part on my commute home. Bring it up on my phone, plug it into the aux port in the ride, and it sure beats talk radio. :ROFLMAO:

    That one's pretty easy for me. I think I've already got all but a course or two. :whistle:

    When I saw some of the other internet teachers start doing the AAP type things, I always told myself that, if Griff ever did one, it'd be the one that I signed up for. I did, and I wasn't disappointed.

    Yeah, I saw the value in this pretty damned fast. No kudos to me, it’s a no-brainer. I’m seeing this blues path as a long term investment and the new membership paradigm buys right into that. :Beer:

    So, if the Golden Ticket is essentially Griff gifting $$$ into the system for us the spend, does that open up the possibility of BGU Gift Cards? The ability for someone (member or not) to pre-load $$$ into another account.
    If so, maybe we can give Exposure Bucks to posts/recordings on the Forum for the recipient to spend - people gift drink tokens to performers at one of the jams I go to.

    I'd like to second Paul's suggestion regarding gift cards. My family often wonders what they can get me for my birthday or Christmas that is inexpensive and guitar related. A month or two of All Access would fit in well for these occasions.

    Interesting thought... I haven't a clue how to do it from a technical standpoint, but I'll look into it.
