Some of you guys might already know about GuitarVision but i signed up for it a few days ago and It's very cool. You can download a demo of it here:
It's a computer program that makes it real easy to learn popular songs, scales...etc. Its like a guitar lesson of your favorite songs on your PC..
I learned guitar in the mid to late 80s so the riffs i learned back then are mostly judas priest and iron maiden influenced. now that i am a bit older i really appreciate classic rock, acoustic...etc. im REALLY getting into the Beatles. i have a pretty good ear but this thing is really helping me with this genre a lot.
Its $4.95 a song but you get a email gift certificate equivalent to the amount you paid so its really $2.49 a song. Considering the price of private guitar lessons this is pretty cheap.
By the way i tried learning tabs and i hated it. Its just not for me.
