It actually works, its easy.

Comments about eMedia Guitar Method Volume 1 for Beginners CD-ROM:

I have tried a lot of books and CD's, but this is the best one I have tried. It actually works, the program shows the player visually what the correct techniques are. It will teach a few chords at a time, then it shows the musician what songs,(popular or other tunes) use those same chords. It also allows the player to look up songs from different artists. It also shows what chords are used, which allows you the player to practice it.

For ANyone non muscian wanting to learn

Comments about eMedia Guitar Method Volume 1 for Beginners CD-ROM:

I am a very green gauitar enthusist. Learning from the beginning on my own. I have tried the internet to little success and one out dated dvd book combo. The software is fantastic. in 1 hour i was finally moving from one chord to another with little hesitation. The program features are great and I love the animated fretboard. This is a 10 of 10 and worth the money.

Beginners Begin

By DString

from 461 Ocean Boulvarde

Comments about eMedia Guitar Method Volume 1 for Beginners CD-ROM:

Let me start out by saying, this product is excellent for beginners, even if you have no prior musical education or instruction. You get step by step instruction on the basics of not only playing guitar but some musical theory too. You can learn from standard musical notation or tabs. Trust me you will not be overwhelmed or bored. You can print out all of the lessons, but only some songs, which is why I gave it a 4.5 for its features. You also learn by playing short riffs and songs. There is a video instructor that can be selected for most lessons. You get audio that you can slow down the tempo until you catch up. The lessons get more challenging as you progress through fine package. The styles of music contained within this CD are very versatile: classical, folk, country, and of course rock. The best feature of all is ot listed, and thats is "time". You can take your time and go at your own pace, no pressure just fun. If you are a beginner or know someone who is, purchase this product. If you are an instuctor and looking for a helpful tool, look no further. I was so impressed I bought the intermidate package, but thats another review.
