Hey guys. I am looking for some tips on fixing a few thing on my layout.. it's totally static, keep loading time way down, but I've put a lot of time into writing 100% original lessons and stuff, and want to know what you think.

check out...

all 3 layouts.. (front page, normal pages, and lessons pages)
accessibility and ease of use
content, if you have no idea how to play guitar just check out the format and stuff

thanks for your time,


Brad W

Very nice site. I like the photos tha tlook like they were actually taken by you. The tutorials are great and intuitive. This is a down to earth guitar enthusiast site.

The community looks good. Maybe some color splashed in would be good, but the design is fairly clean.

I agree that the website is very nice, and clean, but when i looked at your code it is as if you used a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) program to design the website (It looks like you used dreamweaver).

I am not saying that there is anything wrong with that, but if you want to cut down the amount of bandwidth you get from visitors, and also increase the amount of visitors possible.......i recommend that you learn how to do CSS (cascade stylesheets)......there are some good websites that can teach you how to do CSS and here are a couple to demonstrate the power of CSS

an example would be the code alone on your main page could be reduced from 13.5KB to 5.1KB which in terms of visitors could mean possibly 62% more for your bandwidth limit this is because CSS uses <div> tags and stylesheets instead of a million table tags

Hi Brad - the site looks sharp, I especially like the logo. The forum area could work really well but you need to put some work into getting some posts there to encourage people to get going, otherwise they will just lurk.
