As they say in the movies… that escalated quickly.
Hank, I’m going to apologize because it looks like I’m guilty of a little disrespect here. Not my intent. Although this may be a little too late, I like you, you seem like a force for good in the world. I’ve in general been thankful for your posts and supportive of your quest to reinvent some of these basic movements for yourself.
It is clear you are an experienced player, with a wealth of real-world experience, and I did not mean to imply otherwise. Instead, it was my impression that you were intentionally working on simplified patterns (sixes, for example) as a way of retraining some basic movements. Not because you can’t play more sophisticated stuff. A lot of the exercise-y things we work on are intentionally “Mary Had a Little Lamb” because it makes it easier to focus on the movements. The “Thriller” solo was a great example of doing that while still making it fun / musical. That looked like progress to me, and I said so, as an attempt to be supportive of it.
Also, just so we’re clear, in no way have I ever withheld any sort of information on here based on whether someone is or isn’t paying us. I can’t even tell from screen names who’s a subscriber and who isn’t. I can go look it up in our dashboard but I generally don’t. This is a workshop for generating new ideas, and everyone matters for that, whether or not they ever send us a penny. I’ve spent a ton of time on here sharing very detailed thoughts on stuff, including slowing down and examining internet footage and posting up the results for everyone to look at.
Anyway apologies again for overstepping. If you want us to delete your stuff I’m sure we can do so. But hopefully you’ll consider sticking around. I’m a little torn as to what do with the above post - I’m not interested in being censorship guy and deleting everything we don’t agree with. And I’m willing to own up if I’ve been a jerk. But I feel like there’s gotta be a Geneva convention of some sorts when it comes to f-bombs to my face.
