This is the second CD-ROM based guitar tutor that I've used and by far the better of the two. The key thing is that it teaches you using tunes with which you're already familiar (assuming you're a rock fan) and this helps you to get the timing right and recognise when you're playing something close to how it should sound. I was cranking out a passable (or at least recognisable) version of Free's All Right Now within an hour of inserting the disk. The program works gradually through techniques, starting with simple one finger power chords and on to more complex scales and solos but progress is such that you never really feel that you're having to work at it. I'm only about a quarter of the way through and already feel that I've had value for money. Recommended.
