Over in Harmony Central guitar: http://www.harmony-central.com/ , there’s a new feature from E-Media and it’s great for a rank (Get it? rank?;)) amateur like me.
You can play along to a tune (right now it’s The Midnight Special) . It’s a free download and E-Media says they’ll offer a free tune like every three months. The features are animated fretboard, looping and of course they show you how to play the chords.
When you go to Harmony, go to the left hand side of the page and you’ll find Interactive Guitar Lessons. Of course, E-Media wants you to buy their software ($59.99), but a free lesson every 3 months is cool too.
If you’re a fellow Newbie, you oughtta go and check it out.
