Overview

Better than books and videos, Rock Prodigy:
· Listens to every note
· Provides immediate feedback
· Awards points for playing correctly
· Tracks your progress automatically
· You know exactly how well you are doing because you see realtime feedback while you are playing, like a video game, but you learn real-world skills like chords, scales, rhythm, technique and theory.

Your new life with guitar starts now
Learning guitar is easier and faster. Rock Prodigy transforms your PC, Mac, or iPad into the ultimate personal trainer for guitar - that works on your schedule. By hearing and seeing what you're supposed to sound like while you are learning, you will be playing faster and easier than with other methods.

Rock Prodigy is the new, faster way to learn essential skills
Best of all, you will know exactly what to practice each day so you can play guitar better for the rest of your life. Instead of randomly organized tips and tricks, our master teachers take the guesswork out of learning guitar in an immersive, interactive and meticulously guided environment that listens to you and tracks your progress.

You'll be playing guitar in minutes
Rock Prodigy is simple to use and follow: "Right note, right time." That's how simple it is. It shows you the note to play, and when to play it. You try to follow along and play. Rock Prodigy awards points for playing correctly. That's why students love it. Plus, they hear their progress faster than they ever imagined.

Works with any guitar, acoustic or electric
The best way to learn to play guitar is to learn on your own guitar. That's why Rock Prodigy's proprietary polyphonic pitch recognition is designed to use the standard Windows, Mac, or iPad/iPhone microphone for acoustic guitars, or the standard line-in, if you have an electric guitar and any one of many common adapters.

Rock Prodigy Course 1 is specifically designed and sequenced to get you playing faster than ever
With Rock Prodigy you will be learning from some of the world's best teachers. Our guitar teachers are professionals trained at Musicians Institute. Their lessons and songs are set within a teaching system developed by Dr. Richard Gard of Yale University. We utilize the best education science of the past 40 years so Rock Prodigy students learn quickly - even students who tried to play guitar before.

Great way to learn guitar

By Neil Taylor

from Bath UK

I have always wanted to play the guitar but never got round to learning. Then my wife bought me an electric guitar for my 40th so I though I had better give it a go. I have tried many books, and DVDs all with little success, the I found Rock Prodigy. It makes learning fun and with the instant feedback you know straight away what you're doing right or wrong. I am now learning at a faster pace than I thought I ever would. This is a great product and I whole heartedly recommend it.

Great Learning tool

By Chris Ohno

from Venice CA

Rock Prodigy is really helping me understand the fundamentals of playing guitar. I like how the lessons make me feel like I have a personal one on one session with a teacher. With my busy schedule I like that I can practice whenever I have the time. The milestone songs are really fun too!

Worth the money!

By evan gaudet

from Austin, TX

Love this. It keeps me entertained and engaged and since it scores how well you do each time you run through a lesson you can come back to revisit some of the first lessons and see real improvement. I also have this on my iPhone and it allows me to download music tracks to play along with at different difficulty levels. For example when I first picked up my schecter damien elite 6 I played Nothing Else Matters and struggled to get over 15,000 points. I'm currently only 7 lessons in and am now hitting nearly every note on Nothing Else Matters (easy) and averaging around 80,000 points. It's nice to see that real improvement. The lessons are fun as well and teach you everything you need to know to play. Buy it you wont regret it!

Absolutely the coolest way to learn!

By Norbert Garbe

from Miller Place, NY

So easy and so much fun. My wife got me a guitar for my 49th birthday and being brand new to the guitar I was looking for something that would easily get me going and keep me interested. Rock Prodigy does just thank. It's so cool, you feel like your part of the band. Set up was easy and within a few minutes I was playing along with the song. I never had so much fun building calluses.

Best learn to play program out there

By Steve Johnston

from San Jose, CA

This is by far the easiest and best guitar instruction software out there. The program gives you immediate feedback and the tools to repeat, slow down, or loop the lessons so you can concentrate on areas that might be a little harder for you. It scores you each time you play so you know how you are doing. A tuner is integrated into the program. I still haven't gotten to a lesson to teach me chords yet and I already feel like I've learned more through this program than all of the lessons or other programs I've tried. Plus it portable on iOS devices so you can take it with you. I'm really having fun with it.

Best learning app period!

By Jasin Obeshaw

from Chugisk Alaska

If you want to learn the guitar without all the hassles that revolve around a instructor. Travel, time and COST! Then this app is for you. You will learn faster and the best part is you will actually enjoy learning to play and not fighting the guitar. This app makes learning fun and is uniquely interactive, progressive and simple. When I first plugged into Rock Prodigy almost a 6 months ago now I can remember the feeling I had and knew right then that this is the way to learn. Soo much that I ditched my guitar lessons and went and bought a new iPad 4g and been loving it ever since. I was so amazed as to how fast I began to pick up learning the guitar. Right from the start your playing. Not dinkying around with books or trying to learn theory. It all comes natural as if your actually playing right there with the band because you feel the tempo and rhythm of the backing track that accompanys each lesson. Seriously if you want to learn the guitar and have fun learning you have to try this app! The built in tuner is alone half the cost of the app had you bought one. My only thoughts are buy a good quality guitar cable.. Don't go cheap! Same with you computer connect cables or you iDevice. Cheers from the AK Jasin

I've been wanting to learn for over 20 years

By michael grassman

from Bloomington, MN

I bought this about 6 months ago hoping it would work as expected. I was wrong. It worked better then expected. It even caused me to put my $77 dollar target guitar in the corner and get a decent one instead. I took a break for a couple months and just started from lesson one again and I'm playing challenges and milestones like I may know what I'm doing. If you want to learn and can complete a class every couple of days with in no time you know you are better. And for the price of 1 cheap lesson what's the risk. I was most amazed that even a little off the app knows it. I'm using an acoustic and the accuracy is amazing. Oh also the support team is amazing. Thanks again

A easy and FUN way to learn to play the Guitar

By 2865285 2865285

from Jacksonville Alabama

Without a doubt, this is absolutely fantastic at teaching a beginner to play the guitar. Forget the boring methods of before. This is like playing a FUN and addictive game that makes you WANT to practice more and more. Before you know it, your hand will be sliding up and down the guitar fretboard with ease. I highly recommend Rock Prodigy to anyone young or old who wants to learn to play the guitar. Try it and you will be glad that you did.

Amazing!

By Norm Shaw

from South Saint Paul, MN

I can't give enough stars for how I feel about this program. First I like how I can adjust my volume as well as the backtracks and accompanying guitar. I used a USB to Guitar cable called the real tone cable bought off amazon.com for $28 but a simple mono 1/4th guitar to 1/8th input to computer should work fine too. It teaches with repetition building on what you know creating confidence and a feeling of accomplishment. All along the way you are given feedback on how well you're doing. Instructions are clear and precise. Timing is emphasized with a metronome and backing tracks in the background as well as visual feedback allowing me to move my gaze back and forth from my fretboard to the screen with ease. I compare this to Rocksmith and this wins hands down. Rocksmith is a nice game but at the end of "learning" a song I don't feel I learned anything at all... but my score got better! Rock Prodigy is a serious training tool teaching you music theory and rock music fundamentals. I feel improvement at the end of a lesson when I get to jam with the backtrack and put into practice what I just learned. I have no lag with the default settings for configuration. Speed appears to be crisp and instantaneous. One thing that would be nice is the support for Bass Guitar but perhaps in the future this will be added.

Great for all skill levels

By Steve Rowland

from Parrish, FL

Surely one would think a guitar training program would be designed for the beginner, and Rock Prodigy is perfect for beginners. However, I fall into the category of "I've been playing for years", but am mostly self-taught (okay, maybe a Hal Leonard book or chord chart here and there back in the 70's). Yes, I'll admit it - I can play the heck out of Smoke on the Water, the intro to both Barracuda and Dust in the Wind, and heck, I can probably take you most of the way through Stairway to Heaven. Plus about every other three-chord song you can toss out, as long as you leave out the 6/9's and dim13's. I am every music store guitar sales person's nightmare. BUT, how much am I playing correctly? Probably not much. Until now. I'm only about halfway though the first course, and can already notice a difference in the way I approach playing. Do you know how much EASIER it is to play with the right finger position? How about your fretting and picking techniques? Trust me, the "right" way may not come close to "that's how I learned it when I was nine." My advice is, beginners - no question. Rock Prodigy is a great, self paced method to learn guitar. But for the long-timers, step back, take a knee, and start with Course One, Lesson One. Your first lesson or two will be slightly tedious (maybe more if you did start out with lessons years ago), but hang in there! As you progress you will notice an improvement in your skills in no time, and after all, how much fun are you missing? You could soon be "that guy" at jam sessions who everybody wants to play like!
