Learn How to Play Lead Guitar, Jazz Chords, New Fingerpicking Patterns, Music Theory, and More
Enhance both rhythm guitar and lead guitar technique with eMedia Intermediate Guitar Method. This complete method features over 170 guitar lessons designed to advance your playing, and was created by Kevin Garry, Ph.D., University of Colorado-Boulder, a music professor and award-winning gutarist.
Guitar scales, Travis fingerpicking, jazz chords, strumming patterns, bar chords (barre chords), and more are covered in these intermediate to advanced guitar lessons. Guitar lessons use guitar songs with classic riffs like those played by Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix to keep it fun. The included rock and blues lessons use guitar scales, string bends, and vibrato to teach you how to play lead guitar, and eMedia Interactive Feedback technology (not found in video guitar lessons) helps you to learn faster.
- eMedia’s Animated Fretboard, which shows you fingerings for guitar chords, guitar scales, notes, and exercises.
