Guitar-Online is on the Web since 2001 but its author has been publishing guitar tutorials and music software since 1994.
All the guitar-online courses available on this site have been written by Amar Guerfi who has been a guitar player since 1976. He has also been member of the editorial team of “Guitar & Keyboards Magazine” (Paris / France) from 1979 to 1989, has played in various ensembles, duets and orchestras, and has devoted himself to teaching the guitar since 1986.
All the other products and software listed on the Guitar-Online website, such as the piano lessons, the “singing success” lessons as well as the “Transcribe!” software have been created and edited by other companies.
Guitar Courses & Tutorials
Guitar-Online provides lessons, courses and guitar tutorials for Windows® that make it easy to learn to master the instrument. These lessons come in various styles and levels (absolute beginner, intermediate and advanced) and are accessible to everyone, without any prior musical knowledge, which means that music theory is not required. Each guitar lesson is progressively more difficult, and builds on prior lessons.
The “How to play the guitar” courses come in two versions, with or without video, by e-mail or on CD-ROM. The guitar tutorials come in three volumes: Volume 1 for Absolute Beginners, Volume 2 for intermediate levels and Volume 3 for advanced levels.
“I am making progress with the lessons and enjoying your program very much. The lessons are great…”
“I’ve ordered both VOL 1 & 2 a while ago, and I’m really loving it! It’s so cool to play those little Blues and other tunes…”
PC Software for Music
Aimed not just at guitarists but also at other musicians, the “Ear & Memory Training” program is designed to improve concentration, aural skills and musical memory by helping the musician to recognize the absolute pitch of a note. When mastered, this skill which is called absolute pitch or perfect pitch gives the ability to name any note or chord by ear. This software can be used by guitarists and pianists and any other musician.
The multi-instrument tuner allows you to tune string instruments including guitar, ukulele, bass, violin, banjo and mandolin. Thanks to the chromatic keyboard it is also useful for other instruments. This tuner allows standard tuning and multiple Open-Tunings, which will delight the guitarist in search of unique tunings.
Other software is also available on this site, such as “Transcribe!” from Seventh String and a metronome for simple, compound and odd-time meters.
