New Instant Feedback on Your Playing!

Rock Guitar For Dummies

Instant 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 hand, play the first note you see in the exercise (or song) on any screen featuring the "ear" icon in the upper right corner and the computer will highlight the note 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!

New Note and Finger Tracker!

Rock Guitar For Dummies--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!
