In More Detail

Whether you’re an experienced player or a complete beginner, each lesson starts off by introducing something new like a fret hand technique, a new scale, or new chord ideas. You then learn a Cool Track or Study which will help you perfect it. You practise what you learn with video and backing tracks at different speeds.

The extensive video uses the most advanced technology to bring you crystal clear views of exactly what to play and there is a full range of angles, shots, and speeds to choose from.

At every level of Electric Guitar Coach there’s a massive range of music to work on. Among the tracks are songs in Rock, Blues and Indie styles by Bryan Adams, Eric Clapton, Bush, and Placebo among others.

Guitar Coach software has received fantastic reviews over the last 2 years and has built a well deserved reputation for delivering high quality and exciting learning to guitarists all over the world. This brand new Electric Guitar Coach is the best yet and we can promise that you will not be disappointed.

If you already play

If you play already, you’ll find Levels 1 and 2 will help you remember some things that you’ve maybe forgotten and give you some songs you may have missed out on. Levels 3, 4, and 5 will really give you lots of new stuff to work on. Take as an example Level 4 which concentrates on Rock and Blues:

Level Four Lesson Guide

‘Tools of the Trade’ builds up your Technique. It has lessons on, ‘Hammer-Ons’, ‘Pull-Offs‘, ‘Trills’, ‘Bends’, ‘Vibrato’ and ‘Slides’. You work on these by practising a series of ‘Classic Riffs’ which use all the different techniques.

‘Blues Soloing’ works on your Lead Guitar playing and starts off with lessons on the ‘Minor Pentatonic’ and ‘Blues Scales’ and lessons which look at ‘Straight’, ‘Shuffle’ and ‘Swing’ feels. You then learn 2 Lead Guitar Solo’s, the first is based on the Minor Pentatonic Scale with a Shuffle feel, the second is a lush solo based on the Blues Scale with a Swing 3 feel. Towards the end of ‘Blues Soloing’, you perform the Solos with real audio, full band backing tracks. This is great fun and you’LL experience what it’s like to play with a great band.

‘New Kinds of Chords’ extends your chord knowledge and provides lessons in how to improve Barre technique and how to use barres to play different chords. 7th chords are covered in detail and you also look at how to move open chord shapes all over the guitar to create some great new sounds. You then work on exercises that will build up your skills in these areas.

‘Blues Backing’ concentrates on Rhythm Guitar and has lessons in ‘Strum Hand Articulation’ and ‘Fret Hand Articulation’. These show you how to make your playing sound a lot more like the guitar playing you hear from famous bands. You then learn 2 Rhythm Guitar tracks in 2 classic styles. Again, just like with the Lead solos, you can perform what you learn with a full band.

‘Eric Clapton and Black Sabbath’ is a ‘Cool Trax’ lesson which has 3 songs to learn: ‘Before You Accuse Me’ which is a classic blues track, and ‘Sunshine of Your Love’ and ‘Paranoid’ which are 2 classic rock tracks. You learn the central guitar parts from all 3 songs and perform them with video and the full backing band. These songs use everything you’ve learnt in Level 4 and you’LL find that after working through the whole of Level 4, you’LL have a great time performing these Cool Trax.

Level 4 like every Level, is packed with great material and stuff that all guitarists should know. Looking at all the different things in this one Level should give you a feel for the size and depth of Electric Guitar Coach and how at £29.99 it really does offer tremendous value.

 

Sample Lesson 1 - New Stuff 1 of 3

Looking at a sample lesson will give you an idea of what you can expect when you learn with Electric Guitar Coach.

Lessons have 3 stages. This graphic shows the first stage where you learn something new like in this case a simple strum. You learn the strum on the open strings and the video on the top right shows the strum hand viewed from underneath the strings to give the clearest possible view. The video can be enlarged and viewed full screen and even in slow motion.

Sample Lesson 1 - Perform 3 of 3

Finally, you work on building up a performance, first by rehearsing with the band at a slow rehearsal speed, then by building up to the faster performance speed. Whether you’re rehearsing or performing, you can play with the full band, or take the guitar part you’re playing out of the mix, so you become the guitarist in the band.
