Guitar Guru is a handy and effective application that helps you learn how to play the guitar or improve your guitar-playing skills if you’re no longer a complete beginner. It helps you do that by providing effective, interactive lessons based on song sessions created from popular tracks. These song sessions depict everything you need to know about properly playing a song, including fingering, techniques, notes, tempos, etc. It offers a completely visual and interactive learning technique that proved its reliability many times before. Basically, you are shown how fingers should be placed and the strings touched in order to play a certain melody. Besides the virtual fret with real-time finger positions, detailed note-by-note instructions are also available.

I like a lot the versatility of the tool. It’s a highly-customizable utility that lets you configure to your liking several of its features, tools, and options. For example, the neck size is adjustable. You can adjust the playback tempo and choose colored dots, numbers, or dots and numbers to represent fingerings.

This powerful tool also comes with plenty of cool additional features, including printable guitar tabs or voice command controlling. It can be used to learn not only on acoustic or electric guitar, but also on bass guitar.

In conclusion, Guitar Guru is an easy-to-use yet powerful tool that makes learning to play guitar simple and effective.

This was the best program, I grew up learning how to play from it. Can’t read music but being able to look at the guitar neck did it for me. Someone needs to bring this baby back to life. Can’t find another app out there quite the same.

However - music are no longer supporting the file format - so you can no longer purchase or get hold of the music tuition files. So as far as I can see this is now a dead product. Very sad because it is/was brilliantsmile
