I've had mine for 2 years now, and I really do like it. It's kind of a synthesizer with strings to pluck. I'd say it has most of the features you'd expect from a simple keyboard, but plays like a guitar! The top half of the fretboard lights up to teach you chords to play when practicing the installed midis. The songs that come pre-installed include 'Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay' - Otis Redding, 'Tears in Heaven' - Eric Clapton, 'Hard Day's Night' - The Beatles. The tracks are in Midi form, of course. But, if you start playing along in 'strum' mode, it will take care of the chords for you, and play the backing track, so can just rock out on the strings, and sound like you know what you're doing. There were downloadable songs on Yamaha's website, but I haven't checked to see if they're still there.

Now, there were a few things keeping me from giving this thing a full 5 stars - The big one for me was not having a power adapter. It's a pain trying to find 6 aa batteries to put in this thing when I want to play it. I have found an adapter that 'works,' but I don't like to use it too often because I don't want to damage the electronics. Another thing that bugs me a little is that because there are buttons on the frets instead of real strings, you can't do any real fancy finger tricks. No tremelo, no slides. (You can hammer with your fingers though, which is pretty cool.)

Most of the reviews I have read about this product were written by people who are musicians. I am not, but have always wanted to play the electric guitar. I have tried everything, and this is the first time I am starting to learn something.

First all the songs programmed on the guitar and available to upload are super lame, nothing I would ever want to learn how to play. Next the software is programmed so that a non-musician cannot understand what is happening on the fretboard. Lighted programmed fret board with slow-down technology, very cool idea, but comes up way short in reality.

As a nonmusician, here is how I use it. The lighted frets work like a keyboard. When you press a button it makes the sound of that note. I pull up tabulature, online(for free), on a song I want to learn, and practice the notes without strumming or picking. Because the lighted buttons sound out the note, I can focus on nailing the intricate hand movements first (left hand), and then go back and work on string picking(right hand). I am working on Daytripper right now, what a blast that I can kinda play it!

I plan on purchasing an actual electric guitar and going between the two. The yamaha to learn the song, and the actual guitar to rock out.

I had no idea how to read tablature, but it takes 5 minutes to learn the basics, look for a tutorial. Every song ever written has tablature.

If you take the time to familiarize yourself with the EZ-AG's features by reading enough out of the owner's manual, to just gleen a basic working knowledge of the different ways it can show you how to learn the fundamentals of each of the 20+songs already stored inside. Your devotion only really starts to sink in, when your friends come up to you, after not hearing you play for awhile, and compliment you on the seemingly effortless talent that is now just an everyday part of you.
You owe this new ability in part to Yamaha's techno-wizardry. Just by repeatedly copying the flashing lights with your fingers on the fret board with your left hand until mastered, and then conquering the correct strumming/picking patterns & rhythms with your other hand, and then marrying them both together to eventually learn to perform all the 20 plus songs that come already programmed inside the guts of the Yamaha EZ-AG Digital Guitar's virtually limitless interactive song library.
It isn't long before you want more. Through internet research, you discover that you are ready to order the relatively inexpensive "midi" cable needed to be able to download a whole new list of your favorite songs to your EZ-AG, from a list of websites that are partnered with, or have been specially created by Yamaha, with you, and it's other customers in mind. Embracing & utilizing this technology to the fullest, virtually any song you want to learn, can be safely downloaded to your computer, then uploaded directly to your EZ-AG via the 'midi' cable, and is now literally at your finger tips within minutes, to be practiced until learned, mastered and quickly deleted to make room for the next batch of new songs scheduled to be added to your steadily growing repertoire.
