eMedia Masters of Blues Guitar is a fantastic tool to help you learn how to play blues guitar! The original artist blues guitar performances are transcribed note-for-note; and you can study the performance on the eMedia Animated Fretboard, loop it, and slow it down as needed. The software isolates the guitar part you are learning and provides both tablature and standard music notation, allowing you to learn blues guitar with complete, accurate transcriptions. Simplified chord-based versions are also included to help beginning students learn blues guitar.

Learn to Play Masterful Blues Guitar Solos  Learn how to play classic blues songs from the masters themselves! Simplified chord versions of the songs are ideal for beginners, while experienced players can learn note-for-note from the full transcriptions of both lead and rhythm parts. eMedia’s Animated Fretboard shows you the fingerings in real-time, so you don’t need to read music. Original recordings and variable-speed MIDI tracks let you learn at the tempo you choose. Looping lets you select and repeat tricky sections of a song.

Two Levels of Notation  eMedia Masters of Blues Guitar can be enjoyed by guitar players of all skill levels. Learn to play the song “note-for-note” or choose the simplified “chord-only” version for beginners! Use the MIDI tracks to adjust the song tempo to your skill level. Highlight and loop to focus on any portion of the song.

eMedia Masters of Blues Guitar Interactive Feedback

Interactive Feedback shows you when you play the correct notes on your guitar as you progress through a song. With a microphone connected to your computer and a guitar in your hands (or a patch cord connecting your guitar and computer), play the notes in the song on any screen featuring the “ear” icon in the upper right corner and the computer will highlight the notes for you in green. You’ll discover that reading tablature and music notation is easier than you ever thought possible!

eMedia Masters of Blues Guitar Performance Evaluation

Performance Evaluation listens through your computer’s microphone (or guitar’s patch cord) as you play along with the recording and highlights correctly played notes in melodic lines and solos. The notes are highlighted in green, yellow, or red depending on whether the correct note, a nearby note or a far off note was recognized. Also gives you an overall score.

eMedia Masters of Blues Guitar Animated Fretboard

The Animated Fretboard displays fingering positions for you as the music plays. It allows you to see exactly how to play the song on a simulated guitar fretboard as you listen to the music, while Music Tracking highlights the notes being played on the screen. The Animated Fretboard makes it easier to understand blues guitar techniques like string bending, double-stops, and slide guitar positions. Since you can highlight and loop any section of the music (or even double-click on a single note in the music), you can use the Animated Fretboard to make difficult sections or quick changes easier to manage and learn. Watch the fretboard come alive with real-time display of notes, including bends, vibrato, and slides! Includes both right- and left-handed views from both the perspective of looking down at your guitar and across at an instructor’s guitar. The Animated Fretboard makes it simple to follow and play along!

* Attention Mac Users Beginning with macOS 10.15 (Catalina), Apple has eliminated the option to run 32-bit apps on the Mac. If you wish to continue using our applications, which currently require 32-bit support, do not upgrade your operating system past Mac OS 10.14 (Mojave). Alternatively, you can retain an older Mac operating system on a separate drive partition. eMedia developers are currently working on software updates to support Catalina and future versions of macOS, but this is a major undertaking. We are currently unable to foresee how long it will take us to create these new versions. If you purchased your eMedia Mac software on or after September 7, 2019, upon receiving proof of purchase we will provide you with a free upgrade to a macOS 10.15 (Catalina)-compatible version of an eMedia application when it becomes available. All other registered owners of eMedia software will be qualified for discounted upgrades.
