24 Live Video Lessons as seen on Public Television

Originally presented on public television, this lesson series employs the latest split screen video techniques to show details of hand positions, music notes, tablature, etc. Now, with the advent of CD ROM movies, it is possible to play the lessons full screen on your computer. In addition, any part of the lesson can be quickly accessed for repetition with the simple mouse controls of Windows Media Player or Macintosh QuickTime. The easy play-along exercises make it a snap to learn music reading as well as guitar tablature and chord symbols. Printed manuals complete the learning package.
