    after the overwhelming response to the video podcast series I started in the beginning of December, I've spent the past few weeks filming and editing video footage, and designing and launching a site dedicated to video lessons. Members will have access to a growing archive of video lessons with a new video added every week. I'm also going to be uploading a set of 10-15 5min technique/practice routine/fundamental series of videos. Lessons throughout the site will range in level from beginner to expert. I have a forum for members to interact in, upload your own videos, and access a network of peers and musicians from around the world.

    I hope you get a chance to drop in to the site and check out some free videos on the front page and investigate becoming a member.

    Enjoy,

    Hi Janek,

    When I try to buy "Quarterly Recurring Membership" it says : The link you have used to enter the PayPal system is invalid. Please review the link and try again

    Thank you

    marc,

    i'm in the control panel sorting it out right now. It's working fine on my end, but I'm just running some compatibility tests. I'll be right back with a fix. Thanks for your patience.

    drop me a line at lessons@janekgwizdala.com whenever you see these posts, and we can deal with this issue over email if that's cool with you. I'm looking at the site now and it's all working fine on my end, so I want to figure out what the issue is on your end so we can get it working.

    found a glitch in the setup of the paypal.

    empty your cache and try again, and it should all be working now.

    Thanks for your patience with this.

    Hey Janek,

    Great that you're moving forward and developing the video lessons. I just wanted to clarify that you'll no longer be posting new video lesson content at http://gwizmon.podbean.com/.

    I've suscribed to the suscription service there. Should I go ahead and cancel this since no more content willl be provided?

    Cheers,

    Jay.

    I will be ending the bi weekly subscription, so no one will be charged again on the podcast site.

    Hey Janek!


    Will the lessons be downloadable?

    It would be a really great and convenient feature.

    thanks a lot,

    and Happy Holidays

    Hello Janek, I'm currently a member on your site, I have question when will you be uploading lessons with regular standard tuning bass? i notice that some of the videos on chords and improvisation were done with your Fodera which has different tuning set up, I currently play follow your bass lessons with a regular 5 string standard tuning. Just wondering thanks,

    Edgar.

    Dear Janek,

    So nice hearing you at 55Bar last month. Killing! As they say. May I tag on here, selfishly? (I have no clue how to begin to promote this thing I made.)

    I made a sabbatical video series (and more) to share with players and teachers:

    It is free.

    RhythmMeterWorkshop.com
    This is a new learning site containing 40+ short (3 – 8 minutes each) video lessons, 20 or so drum track play-alongs, a user/me dialogue forum, and a few pages of text about practicing and process. New video lessons, guided in part by user interaction, are posted weekly.

    I suggest looking through the Lessons Library first. The newest videos are called ‘Subdivision Basics in 4/4...’. These are being used by my ear training, improvisation, and ensemble students this semester. There are many lessons of many levels, -for improvisers primarily, although there are many hours of work for musicians of any style. And the lesson library will continue to expand to cover time-building regardless of style.

    I’m hopeful this is something that is of use to musicians in your circles. I welcome any and all feedback.

    Best,

    Josh
