The Thank You Thread
« on: March 18, 2008, 12:46:48 am »
I wasn't sure where or how to post this.  Seemed like as good a place as any, right here.

Justin,
I wanted to thank you for putting your this site together.  I come back to it time and again as I learn to play.  For reference, recommended songs, basic chord charts, and like that.  The information you provide is accurate, reliable, sensible, easy-to-read, and easy-to-use.  Unfortunately, I am currently unemployed, and cannot afford one-on-one lessons here, but I can certainly kick-in a few bucks that will keep me going until I'm back earning a reliable income again.  So today I donated $25.  Not much, but I know I'll get that value and more back again by the time I get that next paycheque.  And others will benefit, too.  Keep up the great work.  Thanks again.

I challenge others to do the same.  Kick-in $5, $10, $20. 

(No affiliation, or interest, in Justin, or this site, ... total disclaimer blah blah blah....  I'm just a creative who wants to learn to play my guitar, and who's found a great resource here that needs some support.)

Another thank you, also from Canada.

This is an amazing site. Don't tell anyone, but I learn more here than from my guitar teacher hey ho!

I've donated 25 bucks and challenge others to donate what they can.

A couple of days ago a friend recommended this site to me, so I thought I'd give it a shot as I was looking to learn theory for my guitar playing. I couldn't believe it when I found a site that wasn't swamped with adverts, false claims and anyone and everyone trying to sell me stuff I don't want.

The lessons have helped me so far and will continue to do so. Just wanting to say thanks to Justin and everyone that keeps this site going, it really is a haven.

 I have been a fan of yours now for a little over a year.  Well since I was released from Fl DOC.  And I give you full props for what I have seen in just the last year.  A real generosity, a love of guitar playing, a sincere friendly vibe; all of these idealistic ways permeate throughout my small insignificant existence and perpetuate into the lives of others who have never heard the name Justin Sandercoe.

You transcend the spirit of what guitar playing is all about and I thank you for that.  Playing the guitar is my self help, my therapy, my slow climb back to hapiness through education.  And you have been a dynamic inspiration in my restoration and healing. 

Thanks again dude, and please never evaluate your success in dollar amounts or underestimate your true calling, which is to teach the LOVE of playing the guitar. 

With Admiration and Respect,
Classical Guitar Guy

Hi Justin and Team,

Let me quickly introduce myself. My name is Bart, 38, live in Belgium and discovered your site/forum recently.

I used to play guitar in a (rock/metal) band more than 20 years ago. Last couple of months I got the 'guitar vibes' again,
so decided to buy a guitar. (Ibanez GRG serie) At least I can say now I have a hobby again :-)
I don't have a real amp. I use Cubase and Amplitube amp plugin.

After picking up some basics again, practicing scales/chords etc, I decided to go on the net and look for some info.
Man, what a difference. In my days, I had to travel to certain cities where I could buy books with tabs/chords in it.
Now, you just google for something and there you go.

I think your site is great. For the beginning musician, you can find tons of examples to practice
and it gives me a lot of inspiration to come up with new licks etc.

I don't have a lot of time to spend, due to busy professional life, but from time to time when I have an hour to spare,
I like to fool around with my guitar a bit. Also travel a lot so I'm seperated from my new toy a lot.

Anyway, thanks again and well done you and team. This is great stuff !

Regards - Bart

Haha cool.
Don't you think this site is great?

And the internet, man, what a great resource.
In my 'old' days, I had to search for tabs/chords myself by 'ear', now you just google it.

Hope I can improve my game a little.

Cheers - Bart

I have never posted anything anywhere (don't know if I'm doing this correctly either) but I had to make an effort to say "Thank you Justin" You are truly a class act. I have been all over the internet looking for help as a beginning guitarist, and both you and your site have been incredibly helpful and thorough, I have donated what I can, but almost feel guilty about how much you have provided for so little in return. I'm rambling now, but seriously, if you see this....Thank you.

Sincerly,

Justin,
Thank you so much for your help on your site. Life have been tough for a bit with just recovering from cancer, then having trouble with my wrists then getting laid off from my job. Things are tough in the U.S. but we have been spoiled for so many years. We are just getting a taste of what has been a common thing in the rest of the world.
I have always wanted to play guitar but never thought I could. I am sure I will never be a pro I will be able to use it in the youth ministry that I have at my Church.
I am quite short at the moment but when I get back on my feet you will be getting a good donation I promise you that. I have told some other people about your fantastic site and I know they said they will donate as well.
Again thank you for your site and effort and love of music. God bless you in all that you do and Have a very merry Christmas to you and your family.

I'm a 20 year old college student in the US and I took lessons for a while but then just couldnt afford it.  Then i stumbled onto this site and I can't say thanks enough for doing all of this for people like me who just can't afford lessons at the time.  I've been playing for a couple years and I'm still learning! You are such a big help to furthering my playing and I just wanted to say thanks!

OK, I'm completely new to the forums so forgive me if this is the wrong place for such a topic.

I'd just like Justin to know how unbelievably thankful I am to him. Justin, you've been an absolute inspiration! Not just with your lessons which are EXTREMELY helpful, but with your approach and your generosity as well. I'd love to donate and do as much as I can to return what you've done for me and SO many other people, but alas, my parents don't trust internet with their money. =/ But I'll still try to convince them somehow, or just donate when I, myself, become capable of doing so. Anyways, thanks again, Justin! Peace, take care. :)

I picked up my first guitar about 8 years ago, but never really learnt how to play it. About 10 months ago now, I decided to give it another go. I was asking for help on another music forum when I was linked to your channel on Youtube, and after 10 months of watching, practising and learning, I'm finally getting to a stage whereby I can play my guitars for enjoyment - all thanks to you! I've also recommended you to my cousin and a few of my friends in order for them to start learning to play.

Thanks again. :)

Hi skyline
I know you're new here, and Justin deserves to be thanked etc. etc., but honestly, this is the 3rd "Thanks Justin" thread I've read in 1 hour. Maybe someone should set up a new section just for thanking Justin  :D

The title of the thread isn't miss-leading; you didn't have to click and read. =P

Sorry if it is in the wrong place.
