Excellent! I'm glad you're working with them to get us back to normal! (Whatever that is!) :D

Hi GN-crew!

What´s new in the negotiations with "the publishers"... any progress? Or are they just stalling you, until they think you´ll eventually tire and give up?

Seems like the months are rolling by but without any tangible results...?

Now, I know you´re doing everything you can - and I´m very grateful for that - so I´m not "having a go" at you, I´m just interested in the matter because I miss all the great song-lessons. :cry:

Best Regards,

Something good is coming soon. We have an agreement in place to license songs. It should go into effect very soon.

We'll be reposting some of the old song lessons with improvements and a few new ones as well. The exact timing is something I can't be sure of. But it is really now or never. Sometime in the next few weeks. I'll make sure to announce the news all over the site so nobody misses it.

Thanks again for all the patience and understanding.

Wow, that´s excellent - I´m so happy :D

I´ve missed the "old" song-lessons tremendously, so I´m really looking forward to revisiting them - and some new ones - again. I think the GN song lessons are easily the best out there and they´re a really fun, engaging and interesting way to learn new techniques on the guitar as well as picking up a new song to add to the repertoire!

Best of luck to you in these final steps of the process! I pray to all guitar gods - present and past - that you´ll succeed :mrgreen:

And thank you - to all the GN crew - who are putting all this time and effort into this to make it happen!

That's excellent news.
Thanks to Paul and the rest of the GN team for all the hard (and I suspect somewhat frustrating) work behind the scenes

I can't imagine the headaches around that situation. Congrats for getting that much done! :D :D

Congratulations! It looks like quite a bit of work has gone into updating the lessons too. I only stumbled across GN shortly before the takedown, so I'll be seeing most of these for the first time; looking forward to it.
