App DescriptionIf youâ€™ve ever dreamed of learning to play the guitar, this is your chance.
Award-winning singer-guitarist, STEVE POSTELL, will get you started on your guitar playing path and guide you through all the fundamentals from how to hold and tune a guitar to how to pick, strum, and improvise your own solos.
Youâ€™ll learn how to read chord charts and guitar â€śtabâ€ť and how to play such classic tunes as â€śPeaceful Easy Feelingâ€ť, â€śHouse of the Rising Sunâ€ť, â€śLong Time Goneâ€ť, and â€śTeach Your Children.â€ť Youâ€™ll learn to master the dreaded â€śbarâ€ť chords (theyâ€™re really not that hard!) and then spice up your playing with some fancy strumming and fingerpicking patterns. Youâ€™ll learn to play along while Steve sings and jam while Steve backs you up. And by the end of this lesson series, youâ€™ll be ready to play thousands of popular songs on your own like a true guitar hero.
â€śIntro to the Guitar by Steve Postellâ€ť offers over 145 minutes of lesson time, accompanied by musical notation, chord charts, lyrics and guitar tablature synchronized to Steveâ€™s playing. You get the entire lesson series for $9.99 (a fraction of what a musician of Steveâ€™s caliber would charge for a private lesson). There are no subscriptions charges or hidden fees. And you can keep and reuse these lessons as long as you want. The app even offers a digital tuner and metronome at no additional charge.
ABOUT THE TECHNOLOGY.
If youâ€™ve ever tried to learn to play the guitar using DVDâ€™s, websites or books, youâ€™re in for an entirely new experience. â€śIntro to the Guitarâ€ť uses the same technology as our flagship app, â€śOn the Music Pathâ€ť, which has garnered rave reviews from users and critics as the most â€śelegantâ€ť and â€śuser-friendlyâ€ť music instruction app theyâ€™ve ever seen:
â€˘ Close-up shots on the teacherâ€™s hands make sure you donâ€™t miss a thing.
â€˘ Tab and notation scrolls automatically, synchronized to the teacherâ€™s playing.
â€˘ Tap anywhere in the notation to jump to that exact spot in the lesson.
â€˘ Swipe left or right to skip through a lessonâ€™s chapters.
â€˘ Set your own in and out points to loop a particular segment.
â€˘ You can even slow the video down and practice at your own pace or record yourself and hear how well youâ€™re doing.
