eMedia Guitar Method
This sounds like some really good software to learn with. Has anyone used it?
Yes I have it. There are some reviews on it here on GN. I don't care for it myself but it will teach you the basics. It requires quicktime which I can't stand and you cannot turn off the guy who does the singing, other then that its great for the very beginner.
I've found it to be very useful especially with my timing which was something I was really struggling with. Being able to play along with a video or sound file really helps. You can also record yourself.
It was very helpful when you are picking up a guitar for the first time. I used it a couple years ago to get me started.
I just bought emedia songs volume one to try it out to learn a couple songs I like and it is also very helpful for the 30 bucks. There is more information here than I got out of a half dozen lessons at $30 a pop. 8)
If it was easy it wouldn't be worth doing.
I travel a lot with work. When I started playing guitar the emedia software really helped a lot. It provided me with structured lessons at a time when I was unable to attend lessons with an instructor.
