The eMedia Guitar Basics Win/Mac CD-ROM appeals to all beginners and offers 40 step-by-step lessons, teaching the skills and knowledge needed to start playing the world's most popular instrument. Lessons include full-motion video of guitar instructor Kevin Garry, Ph.D. Lessons demonstrate guitar techniques ranging from stringing your guitar to strumming techniques and chords.
eMedia Guitar Basics includes an animated fretboard, which displays the fingering for each song and exercise in real-time and is adjustable in four viewing angles and includes three custom fingerboard skins so users can customize their lesson experience. Multi-track audio gives full band accompaniment on many of the songs. There is a MIDI track option allowing students to practice any song or exercise at whatever tempo they want.
Along with this valuable instruction, an automatic tuner, metronome, recorder and a chord dictionary are included. If purchased separately, these add-ons alone would cost much more than the entire program, thus making it an incredible value.
