I bought emedia guitar primarily for my 6 year old son as I thought it would be a pretty good start for him to learn a hobby with me as I have never played guitar either. Slightly too advanced for him, so I ended up with a more basic package for him, however I ended up following the lesson plan through into the late hours of each night and I love it. The direction is awesome and I have learned many songs already. Not little kids songs like Mary Had a Little Lamb, but more like Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart songs. Highly recommended as a product for anyone that only has about 30 minutes a day to practice on your own time and not an instructor that you need an appointment with. I am currently working on the song LaBamba. Not quite as easy as Knockin on Heavens door, but I will get it.

I have been using the program for about six weeks and it has been the most significant reason why I am advancing quickly in my ability to play the guitar. I have also taken a few lessons with a teacher, bought another basic beginner book/DVD and found videos on the internet. Each of those, and practice, certainly has helped me get some basic skills, but this program has been the key for me.

The program jumps in pretty quickly and allows you to play along to songs within a few minutes. It starts with very basic chords and then keeps building on what you have learned and you progress. Being able to watch the computer screen and hear the music along as you play is great for getting skills in reading music and keeping a steady beat. It is easy to use and you can take anything at your own pace. I have gone back to the beginning numerous times and walked through all the songs as practice, and it is amazing how you were struggling with a song just a few days ago, and now you can knock it right out.

I would recommend it strongly. I don't think it is appropriate for young kids, but I expect anyone in their teens or older would fine this program very helpful.

I'm a guitar instructor who teaches a once a week high school guitar class. I've started recommending Emedia to my students as a great at home guitar program. As an instructor, I really like the step by step approach to the lessons. The video are very helpful in demonstrating techniques between lessons. Kids that are using the program progress a lot faster than those that don't. This is a fine program either for those that want to learn on their own or that are also taking lessons.

This software starts you off as if you have never picked up a guitar before.
You learn the easiest single finger chords first, learn the basics of strumming, then double strumming, then emphasis strumming, all the while learning additional chords with each lesson. Each lesson has you playing an actual folk song. Each lesson builds on the last, and there are constant quizzes so you can memorize the chords. This has been helpful to me.

I'm only through the first several lessons, and from someone who can play the guitar, but never actually had any training and never learned to read notes, this is software awesome. I'm actually learning to read and understand tabulature, have actually learned what the chords are and I'm making tremendous progress. I'm pretty stoked. I only used to play by ear and this is helping so much.

After only the first few lessons, a portion of the training will list a bunch of songs you should be able to play based on the chords you've learned. These link to a google search, that will take you to tab pages. I learned to play a Pearl Jam song already. Good times!

This was an Amazon Lightning Deal a few months ago. My 20 yr. old daughter is very musical, she sings, plays flute, saxophone & keyboard. We recently purchased a Seagull acoustic guitar for her, along with some how to books. When I saw eMedia Guitar Method v5 on sale, I thought I'd buy it for her. She doesn't have time to take personal guitar lessons and loves this program. For her, it's easier than learning from a "Learn How Book". Amazon has done an excellent job in describing this software program - just check out the Product Features and Product Description.

My daughter will vouch for its effectiveness and its ease of use. She's using the program on an Asus laptop; OS Windows Vista. She doesn't have any problem with computer crashes; everything works smoothly, as it should.

She also told me not to forget to say that she really likes this program.

This version of eMedia Guitar Method is nicely enhanced from the previous version. I find it easy to use. I like that I can tune my guitar using the tuner. I have had fun using this program so far.

I feel a little guilty for not writing this review sooner. I tried private lessons at first on my $140 guitar. I ended up quitting after 3 months (and ~$250 later) because I never learned songs--just lots of exercises and my instructor teaching new chords with "homework." Not fun.

So I decided instead to trying to cash in on the guitar, I'd give it one more shot. I bought eMedia and got plugged into playing Bob Dylan, etc. RIGHT AWAY. There are two reasons anybody picks up a guitar--to play songs they love and chicks. eMedia will get you the former and give you the skills for the latter. Seriously.

So about everyone saying the recorded songs you play along with aren't very good. OK, so that's pretty true. But you know what? You don't learn to play guitar to play along with your training CD-ROM. You learn the songs, play them on iTunes, and rock out. The "campy" feel of the songs makes it simple so that you can focus on the guitar section without an over-bearing voice/other instruments. That's what you need as a beginner learning a new song. You'll be playing along to songs on the radio in NO TIME FLAT. That's why I love this. It gives you skills to go get tabs online and teach yourself songs.

So here I am 4 years later. I play 30-60 minutes every day (still rocking out to iTunes in my office) because eMedia gave me the tools to learn guitar. After eMedia, I took more private lessons to extend my knowledge (this is good for beginner level) and get a better feel for the guitar that you can't learn on a CD-ROM. But this is an awesome start you cannot put a price on. I recommend this to all of my friends who are jealous I can pick up chicks b/c of my mad guitar skills.
