Behind the Scenes Update #1 - Lesson Highlights Project

behind the scenes update May 25, 2023

Hi there! Jared here. I wanted to give you a little behind-the-scenes update on one of the projects that we’ve been working on here at Sound Guitar Lessons. 

A couple weeks ago, I posted a poll on YouTube asking whether or not I should start a new channel for posting daily vertical video highlights taken from my weekly lessons. 

Out of over 200 votes, 80% of the responses said to keep everything together in one place by posting the vertical videos on my main channel. If you weighed in on this, thanks so much for your feedback! Hearing your opinion was extremely helpful. 

I was hesitant to jump on the short-form vertical video bandwagon because longer, more in-depth material is much more my jam. That being said, I have a large archive of past videos and many of them include teaching moments that I think would be inspiring/educational for guitarists to see as individual, bite-sized lessons. 

With the help of a couple amazing team members (who are also dear friends), I’m embarking on a major project where we comb through past lesson videos and extract shareable moments from them to post as vertical videos on various platforms.

This operation is still in the very early stages. Right now we’re focused on consistency and on making sure that the ongoing project is sustainable and enjoyable. As we continue, we’ll be hyper-focused on trying to improve the quality of the video clips to make sure they’re as effective as possible in providing clear educational or inspirational value. 

That all being said, my weekly, long-form lessons are still my top priority and I would never do anything to jeopardize my commitment to publishing those videos every Tuesday :) 

Thanks for reading! If you’d like to see more behind-the-scenes updates in the future, please leave a comment and let me know. There’s always a lot going on on the other side of the curtain to keep SGL going and I’d be happy to share about those things more often if people are interested. 

And if you’ve ever learned anything from any of my lessons then I consider you to be a part of this community and I deeply appreciate you! πŸ™

That’s all for now. Much love and happy practicing 🎸🎡
