Reviews
The Guitar is a very popular instrument, and many of us can strum a chord or two. But if you'd like to learn more, then you'll want a proper tutor. Guitar Method 1 is one of a series of multimedia tutors you can use to move out of the absolute beginner class. There are 60 lessons in all, broken down into six chapters, while a separate appendix covers musical notation.

You start from the very beginning. The first lesson walks you through different types of guitar, teaches you how to hold it, names bits of the instrument, and so on. Pretty soon, you'll be playing chords and singing along and moving through practical lessons. Animations help keep your fingers in the right place, and there are some videos on hand to help explain some techniques. You can listen to narrated explanations of each lesson, play along with your tutor, or record yourself and then listen to your performance. There is a handy metronome on board that you can set to tick-tick-tick away to the beat as you try to ensure your playing is in time, and a chord dictionary is on hand for quick reference.

This is a well constructed tutor with plenty of flexibility. The songs to be learned cover a good range including folk, classical and even some more modern tunes. --Sandra Vogel

Guitar Method 1 is eMedia's top-selling title in its Guitar Method series, aimed at beginners of guitar and consisting of 85 comprehensive lessons, over 100 songs and exercises which are accompanied by full-motion video and sound. Including over three hours of pre-recorded music and audio, an automatic tuner, animated fretboard, and fretonome. Also contains record sound playback, over 250 chords and much more. Users learn from tablature or music notation at a pace that best suits their skill...

Reviews
Producing sheet music is time-intensive and error prone. PrintMusic makes it fast and straightforward using a mouse, keyboard and even a MIDI instrument connected to your computer. The installation CD is Windows and Mac-compatible with a manual covering both.

The setup wizard enables you to define a name, paper size and orientation, choose instruments types--woodwind, brass and so on--and add instruments. PrintMusic then creates the sheet using the supplied editable templates. You can alter the key and the measure as well as add, alter or remove notes, rests, tuplets, beams, a variety of articulations and other musical annotation. PrintMusic dynamically lays it out to professional publisher standard.

Inner voices support--like layers in a graphics package--is impressive. You can add up to four voices each of which can have up to 12 notes per chord for 48 notes per staff on any beat. Use the PlayBack controls to hear your composition at any time, including articulations. If you're using inner voices you can play them in any combination.

Because computer keyboards don't make a good fit with music the keys have special editing functions which take time to learn. Fortunately you're aided by seven excellent tutorials taking you from initial installation to the professional music notation features. Along the way you'll learn various speed entry techniques. For example, PrintMusic can even import a standard MIDI file and export to sequencing programs. The final result is a fast and flexible system for creating and editing professional quality sheet music--a must for any composer. --Steve Patient

PrintMusic! ME provides a fun way to create, play and print music from scratch, or from any MIDI file. PrintMusic! is easy to learn, fast to use, and provides the same quality sheet music as top music publishers. Why? Because PrintMusic! is created from Finale, the worldwide standard in notation software. And with PrintMusic!, you can turn 1000's of MIDI files, available free on the Internet, into sheet music instantly. You can scan sheet music into PrintMusic! and then have PrintMusic! play it back for you -- at whatever tempo you want. Slow it down as much as you want, using MIDI, and learn those riffs!
