HASH(0x9c16efd8) out of 5 stars Great so far! March 16 2005

Though I've odered many times with Amazon, this is the first time I have been excited enough to review a product! I'm an adult who wants to learn guitar for fun and didn't want to play "Mary had a little lamb" and scales for months. I have only used the software for about an hour, and have already been playing parts of songs I actually like! I have been playing guitar for a total of one week prior to receiving this (without any instruction).This is perfect if you don't have the patience or desire to learn the traditional way. I wish I had this when I was 14, I would have loved it.

I can't vouch for the whole thing yet, since I've only played with it for an hour, so I give it 4 stars instead of five. From what I've seen I have no reason to expect that it will let me down and highly recommend it.

HASH(0xa2ae65d0) out of 5 stars Quick start for beginning guitarist March 25 2005
By Todd Dennis - Published on
I found this to be a very good teaching tool to learn to play rock style music. I have never played the guitar before only the violin for eight years while in school. Now I am in my thirties and thought it would be too difficult to learn to play. I have been through the first four lessons and so far it is great. I can work at my own pace, repeat sections I find difficult and play actual songs with lyrics. It is great to play real music not just practice the chords and riffs (although practice is required, it is just more fun). Great piece of sofware. I combined this with a couple of books to study when not at the computer and this worked great for me. Great job eMedia. I look forwrard to additional eMedia song books for rock music.

HASH(0x9bf78480) out of 5 stars Better than eMedia Guitar Basics Sept. 3 2007
By Davialyn - Published on

This is way better than the eMedia Guitar Basics CD-ROM because you actually know what the songs are supposed to sound like when you play them. They have rock songs that you've heard before, unlike the "folk" songs and spirituals that Guitar Basics teaches you.

Unfortunately this does not work with Windows Vista, so I have to use it on a computer that uses XP.

HASH(0x9c6e7594) out of 5 stars My son loves it!! Aug. 19 2006

I picked this up for my twelve year old son. He is a beginner and has been glued to his electric guitar and eMedia Rock Guitar Method for the last two weeks. The program is a great starter, just in case the kids don't stick with it. It's better than $45 bucks an hour once a week, for now, at least.

Great Product! I reccomend it.

HASH(0x9bb599e4) out of 5 stars It Really Works! March 15 2007
By O. Lovitt - Published on
I have tried other systems before and they took the "long way around" about getting to the Rock and Roll stuff I wanted. This one however jumps straight into what I wanted to know about ROCK guitar. The teaching method is fantastic. The program shows not only where notes would fall but includes a "virtual fret board" so I can see exactly what to play. This feature includes a "slow" version to start with then a normal speed version that (in almost every case) is exactly like the song being heard. I have played guitar (that is fooled with guitar) for about twenty years this program got me playing and learning every day for a couple hours. Now I have much more fun jamming and playing songs I have heard. I recommend this for anyone beginners to intermediate.
