eMedia Music Announces a New iPad Version of Guitar Method
The Easiest Way to Learn Guitar, Anytime, Anywhere!

Seattle, WA, March 21, 2012: eMedia Music Corp., publisher of the world’s best-selling series of guitar tutorial
CD-ROMs, announces the release of its eMedia Guitar Method App for iPad, available now on the App Store.
The combination of eMedia’s revolutionary multimedia guitar instruction software and the large, high-resolution
display of iPad creates the ultimate in portable guitar instruction. Learn anytime, anywhere: at home, in the
park, or when you travel. Just slip your iPad into your guitar case and go. The Multi-Touch interface of iPad
makes interacting with songs and learning even easier – highlight a section of music by simply touching it with
two fingers and pinching, then loop and repeat it to learn.

No previous guitar experience is needed to use the eMedia Guitar Method App as everything you need to start
playing is included. eMedia’s Animated Fretboard shows you what to play and supports right and left-handed
players. Music Tracking highlights chords as they are played and Variable Speed Playback features MIDI
tracks that can be slowed down. These tools help you learn at your own pace. The app also includes built-in
accessories that make it the ultimate way to learn to play. The Automatic Tuner tunes your guitar quickly and
easily with iPad’s microphone. The Digital Metronome sets your tempo with audio and/or visual feedback. The
Chord Dictionary includes fingering charts and recorded audio for over 250 chords.

eMedia Guitar Method’s step-by-step approach is the easiest way to learn guitar. Over 120 lessons range from
basics like stringing your guitar and playing simple chords to strumming styles, playing melodies, fingerpicking
styles and reading tablature. Over 50 full-screen videos from instructor Kevin Garry, Ph.D. introduce each new
technique, using split screens and close-ups of both hands. You then practice the technique slowly with
exercises. Finally, you play a song that includes the new technique. By the end, you will be able to play songs
such as “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”, “Rock N’ Me” and “Scarborough Fair”, and be fully prepared for more
advanced guitar technique.

The eMedia Guitar Method App is available for $19.99 from the App Store on iPad or at
