eMedia Interactive Rock Guitar
Instructor Charles McCrone, a graduate of the cutting-edge Guitar Institute of Technology with over 25 years of playing and teaching experience, takes you through all the techniques needed to play rock, punk and metal. These include movable power chords, barre chords, effects pedals, yanks, hammer-ons, pull-offs, palm muting, distorted riffs, the blues scale, using feedback, the whammy bar and more! All these techniques are applied to playing hit songs, with our Animated Fretboard guiding you through fingerings as the music plays. Featuring songs by artists such as The Kinks, Green Day, Blue Öyster Cult, Nirvana and more!
Instant Feedback on melodies you play 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. As you reach your goals of getting all notes to change color in each exercise, you’ll discover that reading tablature is easier than you ever thought possible!
The Finger Tracker tools help you see more easily what note you’re playing by displaying the note on an animated fretboard. You’ll be able to correct your playing quickly and learn to read music fast!
