Learn How to Play Lead Guitar, Jazz Chords, New Fingerpicking Patterns, Music Theory, and More
Enhance both rhythm guitar and lead guitar technique with eMedia Intermediate Guitar Method. This complete method features over 170 guitar lessons designed to advance your playing, and was created by Kevin Garry, Ph.D., University of Colorado-Boulder, a music professor and award-winning gutarist.
Guitar scales, Travis fingerpicking, jazz chords, strumming patterns, bar chords (barre chords), and more are covered in these intermediate to advanced guitar lessons. Guitar lessons use guitar songs with classic riffs like those played by Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix to keep it fun. The included rock and blues lessons use guitar scales, string bends, and vibrato to teach you how to play lead guitar, and eMedia Interactive Feedback technology (not found in video guitar lessons) helps you to learn faster.
This product will only run on MACs running Mojave (10.14) or earlier as it requires a 32bit OS. Beginning with macOS 10.15 (Catalina), Apple has eliminated the option to run 32-bit apps on the Mac. eMedia developers are currently working on software updates to support Catalina and future versions of macOS, but this is a major undertaking. They are currently unable to foresee how long it will take us to create these new versions.
