The included best-selling eMedia Guitar Method (for Windows & Mac computers) is the winner of many awards and makes learning easy and fun. It conveniently teaches you at your own pace. It has 165 easy-to-follow comprehensive lessons authored and demonstrated by professional guitarist Kevin Garry, Ph.D. Over 50 videos guide you through basics such as tuning the guitar and playing simple chords to power chords, strumming styles and fingerpicking techniques. You’ll learn modern rock strumming, how to play the blues, the bass-note strum for country tunes and much more. You’ll also learn how to play melodies, read tablature and standard music notation. All this is taught in over 70 songs – it’s easy. As the live recorded songs play, the Animated Fretboard shows you where to put your fingers while Music Tracking highlights the corresponding notes on the screen.
