Hi there, just would like to see some links posted to some various guitar programs that helped anyone out there develop better, technique, theory, ear training, or anything in general or any programs to stay away from.

They don't have to be a free program either just post the link and a little blurb next to it of what it helped you with and we can kinda start a little Guitar Program index.smile.gif



I would like to start things off by telling you guys a program to stay away from- http://www.perfectpitch.com/ , basically a scam and the guy who has perfect pitch in the audio lessons really doesn't explain things very well to help anyone come even close to developing perfect pitch.

Guitarpro is the best program out there in my opinion.. you can learn songs from it, write and save your own music on it and practice with it... it has a speed trainer and loop that has helped me alot
I love guitarpro

Yeah, guitar pro has become a sort of "industry standard". It is very common in use and packed with powerful tabbing and MIDI features, compared to other similar software.

I dont agree with you on this matter. I tried the relative pitch and perfect pitch training and it really gives good training methods and your ear improves. But like everything elese you have to put time into it. The relative pitch is a little simpler to train. But for perfect pitch you really need time.

Hm .. i think David-Lucas Burge's courses are not a scam at all.

The RelativePitch training course is really well done. Good structure and goes step by step through each interval. I work with it since a while and find them way more effective then other tools i have tried.

Can not say if the perfect pitch course is working. It is a complete other level of ear training and difficult to explain/practice, but in any ways i'm sure it will open up your ears for deeper listening.

There was a thread on Guitar Scales Method a few days ago, but I can't seem to find it now. Anyway, I wanted to say I got the program, and it is actually very cool for anyone wondering. It firstly clearly explains all of the theory behind scales, modes, and chords very well.

It has three main tools as part of it, a 'progress map' filled with over 100 drills , applying a 'hard concrete' principle such that you develop little skills, like note, pattern and degree recognition individually and gradually you put them all together. It reminds me a bit of a hybrid between our Rec Program, including rankings, and a video game biggrin.gif So it's actually pretty fun. I imagine it might be similar, but at the same time pretty different to Guitar Pro, which I've never really gotten into.

Another tool it has is a play along trainer, which is basically a midi program where you can create songs or even have it throw random chords (of your choice) at you with lots of different settings for instruments (drums, bass, guitar, piano, synth..), rhythms and all of that. Very fun to use to solo over, it's like a never ending backing track generator.

Lastly it also has a pattern trainer that I haven't really gotten into yet, that trains you in ascending and descending scales with different patterns of note values and rhythms. The progress map would be my favorite part so far, it has timers on every drill you've done, shows all of the drills on the 'map' as blocks that you gradually color in over time as you rate yourself from poor (red) to medium, high and master (green) so you can see your progress in a very tangible way.

Recommended as a very cool supplement to your practice routine smile.gif

I like guitarpro in some ways like when you need to write down a pice of music. But it allso makes you lazy, instead of listening to the music and figure out what to play it just gives you the tabs for it. I dont use guitarpro to check tabs anymore because I want to develop my ears to hear what to play instead of going the lazy way. smile.gif

Thats a cool thing about Guitar Scales method, it starts you of like that and gradually ends up giving you the scales on the fretboard a beat or two after a chord change, so you can do it if you know it, and it confirms if you were right or not. Or you can turn that off completely I'm pretty sure.

+1 for GuitarPro.
I´d like to add www.musictheory.net which is an awesome and helpful theory trainer. Not only ear training, but also musical notation training is featured.

Theres a huge difference between relative pitch and perfect pitch.


I highly doubt anyone has learned perfect pitch from his program. Maybe relative but not perfect.
