News: Downtime, Upcoming Stuff

First things first:  While I was fast asleep early this morning, couldn’t connect to its database server, and I know a few people got error messages when they tried to log in.  It looks like the issue only lasted for eight minutes or so, and things are back to normal now.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

As for new features:  I’m slipping in small, largely invisible improvements without announcement here and there.  Bigger stuff is in the works that should be rolled out right after the new year.  (It’d be sooner, but I have family visiting for the holidays and international travel and whatnot planned for the next few weeks.)  Watch for password recovery, usability enhancements (including scale and drill descriptions on the drill page), and more little tweaks around the edges.

I’m also making some big changes under the hood – teaching the GC software some music theory, in essence.  This is in support of still more features slated for the spring.  But more on those another time.

Thanks for the update and the post.

I have to admit that I have not gone to your site in some time, but I have since added it to my Blog Roll: Great site and I know what I will be practicing tonight: “New Feature! Check out the new Modes options below.”

Thanks again for all your help,
A NewBee.

Mike – I’m glad I could lure you back, and I hope GC helps with that practice.

Thanks for the link!

Badass-looking guitar on your page, btw – who makes that?

A version/feature for us bass players so that we don’t have to transcribe? Sure it’s not hard but it’s a pain for us 5-string (probably a few sixers as well) players who have little time to practice.
