You’ll learn to play solos like the ones Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix made famous, using newly acquired lead guitar skills.

Interactive Feedback on Your Playing!
Interactive Feedback shows you when you play the correct notes on your guitar as you progress through an exercise. With a microphone connected to your computer and a guitar in your hands, play the notes in the exercise (or song) on any screen featuring the “ear” icon in the upper right corner and the computer will highlight the notes for you in green. As you reach your goals of getting all notes to change color in each exercise, you’ll discover that reading tablature and music notation is easier than you ever thought possible!

Note and Finger Tracker!
The Note Tracker and Finger Tracker tools help you see more easily what note you’re playing by displaying the note as music notation and on an animated fretboard. You’ll be able to correct your playing quickly and learn to read music fast!

Over 170 Step-by-Step Lessons
You’ll learn to play solos like the ones Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix made famous, using newly acquired skills such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends, vibrato and slides. Barre chords and different strumming styles are covered in the rhythm chapters, and there’s a fingerstyle chapter as well. Intervals, scales and the basics of improvisation are also covered in this comprehensive volume. As with Guitar Method, your instructor Kevin Garry, Ph.D., provides clear and friendly instruction.

Music Notation Display Options
Learn via guitar tablature or standard music notation through this easily accessible menu option.

Music Tracking
Highlighting of the music and lyrics as they’re heard makes it easy to follow along on guitar.

Variable-Speed MIDI
Slows down the audio to any tempo, while the Animated Fretboard shows song fingerings as the music plays. Learn at the pace best suited to you!

Scale Directory
Fingerings, recordings and variable-speed MIDI for over 150 scales make practicing and learning new scales easy. When scales are introduced in the lesson material, they are followed by sample songs applying those scales, making the learning experience practical and fun.

Music Theory
An interactive Circle of Fifths helps teach music theory and is linked to scales in the Scale Directory chapter. Intervals, chord construction, the basics of improvisation, and modes are also covered in Intermediate Guitar Method.

Animated Fretboard
Watch the fretboard come alive with real-time display of notes, including bends, vibrato and slides! It displays fingering positions for you as the music plays. This allows you to see exactly how to play the song on a simulated guitar fretboard as you listen to the music and the music tracking highlights the notes. Since you can highlight and loop any section of the music (or even double-click on a single note in the music), you can use the Animated Fretboard to make difficult sections or quick changes easier to manage and learn. The Animated Fretboard makes it simple to follow along with the lesson content. Includes option for both right- and left-handed views, and, just for fun, choose from six different fretboard skins modeled after classic guitars!

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 tuning notes are included.
