EMEDIA GUITAR METHOD DELUXE
In Guitar Method, 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 hand, 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 and music notation is easier than you ever thought possible!
Guitar Method also features a Note Tracker and Finger Tracker to help you see more easily what note you’re playing by displaying the note as music notation and on an animated fretboard. You’ll be able to correct your playing quickly and learn to read music fast!
Practice should be fun! After you’ve been prepped with exercises designed to teach you to read tablature and notation, try the interactive flash card quizzes to reinforce what you have learned. Flash Quizzes in Guitar Method utilize the Pitch Tracking technology to detect notes played on your acoustic guitar!
Over 350 easy-to-follow lessons start with the basics, such as stringing the guitar, and move to playing simple chords and strumming styles, including modern rock strumming and power chords. They continue on with reading tablature, playing melodies, fingerpicking, and standard music notation. The intermediate volume moves on with additional techniques in exciting solos, barre chords, fingerstyle guitar, scales and improvisation. Your teacher is professional guitarist Kevin Garry, Ph.D., from the University of Colorado at Boulder. The excellent teaching he offers will get you playing quickly!
