“Terrific new introductory instructional CD for children ... we didn't leave our seats until we completed every tutorial.”

My Guitar is a unique program that offers an exciting way for kids ages 6 and up to learn how to play acoustic guitar. The program features multimedia lessons that guide children with full-motion video demonstrations, and creatively uses interactive games to teach chords.

The animated Gary the Guitar leads kids through the over 60 lessons by Kevin Garry, Ph.D. My Guitar covers the basics, such as holding and tuning the guitar, and moves on to playing chords, songs and reading tablature notation. An animated fretboard shows kids where to put their fingers as the live recorded audio plays. With MIDI tracks the speed of the music can be adjusted so each child can learn at his or her own pace.

Review by Nong Lak

cool program - This program is great for beginners. I highly recommend it! Before this, I quit playing many times because all the books I got were too complicated for me, so I didn't think I was making any progress. I gave it a 4 ratibng out of 5 because on the game section, it won't read my input, so I never got a good score.
