Rock Guitar Lessons for Learning Power Chords, Guitar Riffs, Rhythm and Lead Guitar.

Charles McCrone, graduate of Guitar Institute of Technology at Musician’s Institute (the legendary training ground for many great rock guitarists), has created over 100 electric guitar lessons to provide a complete overview of rock technique and gear. Interactive Rock Guitar helps both beginner and intermediate players learn how to play electric guitar by covering rock guitar basics like power chords, bar chords (barre chords), guitar riffs, and lead guitar lessons with the blues scale. You’ll even learn about effects pedals!

eMedia Instant Feedback technology highlights correctly played notes, making learning faster and easier. The Animated Fretboard shows a real-time 3D display of guitar riffs, string bends and rock guitar tricks which otherwise are hard to see in other, simpler video guitar lessons.

Classic guitar songs by artists like The Kinks, Green Day, Blue Öyster Cult, Nirvana, and others make guitar practice fun as you master rock, punk, and metal guitar styles.



More than 50 videos, with split-screen and close-up views of both hands, which show techniques needed to learn how to play guitar.
Rhythm guitar lessons with rock chords like power chords (both open and moveable power chords), bar chords (barre chords), palm muting, and other techniques.
Instant Feedback highlights notes in songs and riffs as they are played correctly (requires computer microphone).
Lead guitar lessons that teach string bends, vibrato, and hammer-ons, plus how to play guitar scales including the blues scale.
eMedia’s Animated Fretboard to show guitar fingerings for chords, guitar riffs, and guitar scales.
Integrated guitar software tools include an automatic guitar tuner, chord chart/dictionary, fingering charts, and metronome.
Over 40 Jam Tracks with slow and fast versions provide a backing band to make learning fun. Learn the blues scale, and then practice guitar riffs or lead guitar with a band!
Hit guitar songs like “Paranoid” (Black Sabbath), “You Really Got Me” (Van Halen/The Kinks), and more!
Guitar lessons and songs as both audio and MIDI tracks where selections can be looped, slowed, or sped up.
Interactive Finger Tracker technology displays the notes you’re playing on the Animated Fretboard as the guitar software listens to your playing via the computer microphone.

Instant Feedback

Instant Feedback on Your Playing!

Instant Feedback on melodies you play on your guitar as you progress through an exercise. With a microphone connected to your computer and a guitar in your hands, play the notes in the exercise (or song) on any screen featuring the “ear“ icon in the upper right corner and the computer will highlight the notes for you in green. As you reach your goals of getting all notes to change color in each exercise, you’ll discover that reading tablature is easier than you ever thought possible!

Finger Tracker

New Finger Tracker!

The Finger Tracker tools help you see more easily what note you’re playing by displaying the note on an animated fretboard. You’ll be able to correct your playing quickly and learn to read music fast!

Jam Tracks

New Jam Tracks!

Playing exercises and riffs is more fun than ever with over 40 jam tracks. There are "Slow" and "Fast" versions, as well as "Full" and "Rhythm Only" versions. Even long after you’ve finished the coursework, you can come back and enjoy practicing your guitar technique over the jam tracks.
