Introducing New G-Plus Audio Play-Along Songs
In the 2-1/2 years since we introduced our revolutionary G-Plus Song lessons, they've become the most popular lessons at GuitarInstructor.com. Now, we're excited to bring the new G-Plus Audio format, which combines guitar tab and a backing track to create the ultimate guitar play-along tool.
Using our G-Plus technology, these new play-alongs offer you the ability to remove the main guitar track for play-along purposes; isolate the guitar track to hear the part clearly; add a click track, slow down the tempo while maintaining the original pitch; and set a loop to practice difficult sections or phrases—all with self-scrolling guitar tab so you never lose your place in the music.
Our initial release includes over 30 classic tracks by artists ranging from AC/DC to Freddie King to Creedence Clearwater Revival to Joe Bonamassa to Joe Satriani and more.
