eMedia My Electric Guitar
For ages 9 and up
Research has proven that children who play an instrument do better in school, make friends more easily, are more creative, learn self-discipline and gain self-confidence. In eMedia My Electric Guitar, an animated character named Rocky the Guitar leads kids through lessons by Charles McCrone, graduate of the cutting-edge GIT and professional guitar instructor. My Electric Guitar covers the basics, such as tuning your guitar and learning about your gear, and moves on to playing songs, learning riffs, and much more.
An animated fretboard shows you where to put your fingers as the live recorded audio plays. With MIDI tracks, the speed of the music can be adjusted so you can learn at your own pace. Additional features such as an automatic tuner, metronome, chord dictionary, and digital recorder are all included. My Electric Guitar is the perfect way to introduce children to playing the electric guitar.
Now it’s easy for kids ages 7 and up to learn how to play electric guitar. An animated character named Rocky the Guitar guides kids through lessons by Charles McCrone, graduate of the cutting-edge GIT. Kids will learn chords, riffs, and lots of songs that they can share with friends.
The animated fretboard shows the correct fingerings as the music plays. Double-clicking on any chord or note will also show kids where to put their fingers. Choose from right-handed, left-handed, and mirror views. The lessons are easy to follow with our large-format videos, featuring split-screens and close-ups that guide kids through songs and playing techniques.
Games help children learn chords and songs by reviewing what they learned in the lessons. By interacting with the playful characters and scenes, kids will have fun while learning music. Using either the computer’s built-in microphone or an external one, your child can get tuned up quickly and easily with the built-in interactive tuner. They can just line up the arrow with the right string and be in tune.
The chord dictionary is an extremely helpful tool, displaying over 250 chord charts. Simply click on a chord and your child will hear what it sounds like and see the right fingerings. With the Metronome, kids can set their own tempo and get audio and/or visual cues for staying on beat so they can play in time with the music.
The digital recorder allows kids to play into the computer’s built-in microphone (or an external one), record their performance, and save it to the computer. This handy tool lets them listen to what they played and share it with their family and friends.
