It's my own personal Java based menu, not affiliated with GN. It does cover just about every theory article posted on guitarnoise.

I'd like to add in links to the forum posts that go in depth on Modes, etc. That way they don't get buried and lost.

If you have them bookmarked, please add them here. I'll add them into the menu as time allows.

By the way, the rest of the site isn't ready and neither are the DVD lessons.

That's a cool idea, but Java seems like a strange choice.

Looks good Nick. It is a nice cross reference to half of my music links in my browser.

Waaay to much typing. :lol:

Nothing really, but not every computer has a virtual machine installed so getting to the menu could be a pain for some people. For that reason it seemed odd to use Java for a web based app that doesn't need most of Java's power. Java's fine if you've got it installed already.

That's great Nick. Pages load almost instantly.

Java is so widespread that it's difficult not to have it loaded. Java is also standardised and portable - it doesn't need a Windows PC to run.

No, you don't need it's power, but how many people use more than 5% of MS Office's capabilities?

Java compiles down into a compact Meta-code that's small (short download times) and has relatively fast processing times - way faster than text based interpreters (the parsing has already been taken care of in the compile phase).

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

This is great, it's like if i specifically want to figure something out with modulation i can look it up right there, as opposed to reading through all the theory lessons.

Many people do have Java, but I don't expect any public terminal I sit down at to have it, and I don't expect every user to have it. Keep in mind, I'm not trying to criticise the choice, just to explain why I thought it was odd.

Java GOOOD! Especially with breakfast. Thanks once again Nick for taking the time.

Nicely done Nick.

I've sat in 'net cafés in some pretty odd places (including Asian islands) and never been without java.
Flash, yes, Java, no.

Guitarin' isn't a job, so don't make it one.

Maybe Paul has a point about Java not being everywhere.

I have a standard Windows XP OS installed and when I click on the link I get zilch. Well, not quite zilch, I get a page that's blank except for a long rectangle down the left side that's empty except for a small red cross. :(

Could my problem be caused by something other than Javalessness?
