Improve Your Guitar Technique
Instant Feedback shows you when you play the correct notes on your guitar as you progress through an exercise. With a microphone connected to your computer and a guitar in your hands, play the notes in the exercise (or song) on any screen featuring the “ear” icon in the upper right corner and the computer will highlight the notes for you in green. You’ll discover that reading tablature and music notation is easier than you ever thought possible!
Standard Music Notation
Music Notation Display Options Learn via guitar tablature or standard music notation through this easily accessible menu option.
Professional guitar instructor Kevin Garry, Ph.D., guides you in over 40 videos with demonstrations of techniques.
The Animated Fretboard (with six different skins!) displays fingering positions as the music plays. It allows you to see exactly how to play the song on a guitar fretboard as you hear the music.
Since you can highlight and loop any section of the music (or even double-click on a single note in the music), you can use the Animated Fretboard to make difficult sections or quick changes easier to manage and learn.
The Animated Fretboard makes it simple to follow along with the lesson content. Includes option for both right- and left-handed views. Fretboard skins are designed in the style of Rickenbacker, Strat, Gretsch, ’59 Les Paul and more!
The Note Tracker and Finger Tracker tools make it easier to see what note you’re playing by displaying the note as music notation and on eMedia’s Animated Fretboard. You’ll be able to correct your playing quickly and learn to read music fast!
