Interactive Feedback on Your Playing

Interactive Feedback shows you when you play the correct notes on your guitar as you progress through a song. With a microphone connected to your computer and a guitar in your hands (or a patch cord connecting your guitar and computer), play the notes in the song on any screen featuring the “ear” icon in the upper right corner and the computer will highlight the notes for you in green. You’ll discover that reading tablature and music notation is easier than you ever thought possible!

Performance Evaluation

Listens through your computer’s microphone (or guitar’s patch cord) as you play along with the recording and highlights correctly played notes in melodic lines and solos. The notes are highlighted in green, yellow, or red depending on whether the correct note, a nearby note or a far off note was recognized. Also gives you an overall score.

Real Instrument Multi-Tracking

Zero in on the guitar-only tracks or turn off the guitar track and play along with the rest of the band. Bass-only, No Bass, and rhythm-only tracks are also included. Of course, you’ll also want to hear the full audio track in all its glory, complete with guitar, rhythm, and vocals. Professional studio recordings and authentic instrumentation mean that you’ll hear what sounds like the real thing.

Tablature and Standard Notation

You have the option to learn using either guitar tablature or standard music notation. In addition, the music tracking feature highlights tablature or notation in real-time as the music plays, making it easy to follow along.

Learn at your own pace!

Sections of music can be highlighted, looped and even slowed down with variable-speed MIDI tracks. Variable-speed MIDI tracks for each song allow you to slow down the music and learn at whatever pace you like.

Animated Fretboard

Watch the fretboard come alive with real-time display of notes, including bends, vibrato, and slides! Includes both right- and left-handed views from both the perspective of looking down at your guitar and across at an instructor’s guitar.

Automatic Tuner

Tune your guitar quickly and easily. A precision gauge allows you to play into your computer’s microphone and tune up interactively. Reference guitar tuning notes are also included. Two alternate tuning modes are also included.

Digital Metronome

Set your own speed and keep a steady beat.

Digital Recorder
