Guitar and Bass are a powerful, free online software for fret-free, fretted musical instruments, like Guitar, Bass, Banjo, Fender, and Mandolin. (New musical instruments and tunings are also available.) In fact, this is probably the best program for beginners. You will get everything that a serious guitarist or bass player would need: scales, chords/inverses, and even advanced techniques. The more advanced you become, the more features you will see.
The online guitar and bass lessons are available on DVD, with the necessary accompaniment CD, which can be played in your home. Lessons cover everything from beginner to advanced techniques. The lessons are categorized by skill level, so the beginner will find something that he or she is interested in. The advanced player will find a section for improvisation and advanced guitarists will find specific lessons on bass guitar parts. There is even a section on the history of the guitar and bass.
The DVD contains over twenty hours of guitar video and audio tracks, which demonstrate each lesson. The DVD can also be used on its own, with the necessary accompaniment CD. This DVD is truly the ultimate tool for learning to play the guitar and bass.
