So Why Should I Use Video SurgeonToday?
As a guitarist there are four main benefits of using Video Surgeon. Near the top of this
short list is time savings. Video Surgeon can save you dozens if not hundreds of hours a year, by enabling
you to learn new material on your guitar quicker and easier than you ever thought possible:

Whether student or teacher, the 1-2-3 punch of slow motion, zooming and looping, make learning much quicker
With Video Surgeon You Can:
Quickly learn new songs or material
Decipher and learn that difficult or fast riff

Learn New Guitar Material 614% Faster Or Even More
Ten years ago, we conducted a survey of guitarists that had purchased and were using a guitar
lesson that contained audio that was slowed down to 50% of the original tempo.
We asked them how much easier it was to learn from these slowed down lessons than from something
playing at normal tempo. We knew that slowing down made things easier, but what the survey results showed
blew us away. Almost 200 guitarists told us that these slow down lessons increased their
ability to learn by 2 to 10 fold, with the average being 614%. Wow, that's huge.
Video Surgeon slows both audio and video, so not only do you hear the audio at a slower speed but
you see the hands on the fret board in slow motion also -- and on top of this -- Video Surgeon allows you to
also zoom-in so you can magnify part of the video frame, for example the fret hand. And lastly, Video Surgeon
enables you to create loops which isolate a specific segment of the video for repetitive playback.
When you combine, slow motion, with zooming, and looping you have powerful tool for
breaking down, analyzing and decipher any guitar riff or song, no matter how difficult it is.
Stop Wasting Countless Hours Trying To Learn
New Material or a Difficult Riff On Your Guitar
Let Video Surgeon Do the Heavy Lifting For You
Video Surgeon was specifically designed for the consumer, not some IT guy or gadget wizard -- and guitarists
are our single largest group of users. You will find the basic operations intuitive and easy to use. Slow motion
playback, zoom-in, and then create looping areas for repeated playing. When slow motion, zooming and looping are
employed at the same time, you have a powerful tool to assist you in analyzing any guitar video, and maximizing your
learning potential from it.
Is That All It Does?
Actually, that's just the beginning. Video Surgeon also enables you to do frame-by-frame review and
analysis, it allows you to print video frames while zoomed in, it performs basic editing, and it can EXPORT
changes -- creating a new video with slow motion and zoom embedded in the new video. It also contains a video
downloader, rips DVD's and can open files from most video cameras.
Lastly, it allows you to set up multiple loops and individually customize them, and it changes the
key of audio flawlessly (a very important feature for musicians.)
Video Slow Motion
( to 75, 50, 25 or even 6.25% )
The benefit of video slow motion is that you can see many things that you might
otherwise miss when playing at normal speed, thus allowing you to analyze strengths and weaknesses. The
identification of weaknesses, problems or errors is the most important first step to fixing them
(2, 4, or 8 fold ot even more)
The ability to zoom-in when a video is playing allows a user to magnify a specific part of the
video frame, such as the fingers on the fret board, making it easier to see what is going on and to
ascertain details that might otherwise be overlooked.
Repeated playback of a video segment
The creation of looping areas allows guitarists to isolate specific parts of a video for
repetitive playback. This allows for the continuous repeated viewing of an isolated segment that may aid in
the understanding of the note being played or the technique being used such (hammer-on, pull off, slide,
Simultaneous Video Slow Motion, Zooming and Looping
Slow motion, zooming, and looping are each important features and valuable when reviewing
video. However, when combined their power is magnified several times over and they become a potent tool for
analyzing a video and extracting all of the valuable and useful information from it.
Printing of a frame or frames whether to paper or a digital file
Whether you are a teacher, student or a DIY learner, the ability to print a video frame or a
series of video frames can be a valuable tool and can be a helpful accessory for teaching or learning. Video
Surgeon can print to paper or to a digital file.
Frame-by-frame video analysis
Videos commonly contain 20, 30 or more frames per second. The ability to scroll forward or
backward, frame-by-frame, to find a specific frame that illustrates a specific technique or guitar chord can
be very helpful.
Downloading from YouTube and 1000's of other sites
There are thousands if not millions of videos on YouTube of guitar players, performances and
Video Surgeon enables you to download any video on YouTube and then open it and use it as
your own personal learning lesson.
Exporting to create a new video
Whether there is a change in tempo, or key, zoom level, or the deletion of the
unwanted portion of the footage, when you export these changes they come permanent and portable, and you can
open and play this newly created guitar video on any standard player, even your iPad or Tablet.
Video Surgeon contains basic editing capabilities that allow you to delete
unwanted sections, thereby trimming a long, large file size video down and saving only what you really need.
It also allows you to copy and paste together segments from multiple videos, giving you the ability to
create a composite video of several different guitar riffs.
Whether a Student, Teacher or a
DIY Learner Video Surgeon Will Give You a
Real Competitive Edge
Whether you are just learning to play the guitar, an advanced player, someone that plays in a band,
or an instructor, Video Surgeon can help you learn new material faster and easier than you ever thought
possible. How? By slowing and zooming in you'll not only be able to hear and see every note being played, but
you'll also be able to see the nuances of HOW it is being played. Was that a pull off, hammer on, slide or bend?
If you use video in your training, teaching, instruction, lessons or learning, Video Surgeon can be an
enormously powerful tool.
Get the frame-by-frame analysis you need to identify where you can improve your guitar playing,
give yourself a competitive advantage, and set yourself on the path to true success. Best of all, it won't cost
you an arm and a leg to get your hands on this powerful guitar learning tool.
But What About Sheet Music and Tablature??
If you've spent any time on the Internet looking for guitar tabs for a particular song, you already
know that finding accurate tabs is almost impossible. Most of the stuff you find is just not that good -- and
some of it is pretty awful. Okay, you say, then what about sheet music? Recently I bought sheet music for six
popular, well known songs that you hear on the radio. I had a 40+ year, guitar veteran go through each song and
transcribe it and compare it to the original song on the radio. Any guesses as to what we found? The sheet
music was not the same as the actual song!
What that means for you is that if you want to or need to learn a song, or riff, or solo, the only
way to learn it is to analyze it and figure it out yourself. You can do this on your own without any tools, or
you can use Video Surgeon and cut the time required by at least 6 fold. The choice is yours.

I used V.S. to rip it from YouTube, slow it down, zoom in and learn it note by note
I am a solo jazz guitarist and I use Video Surgeon for learning complex jazz guitar songs that
otherwise would be out of my reach without sheet music.
For example, the day after I purchased Video Surgeon, I ran across a video of a song that I
just HAD to have in order to perform it in Christmas concert that I had been invited to perform in. I wrote
the artist in the video and he wasn't able to provide me with the sheet music due to copyright issues. So I
used Video Surgeon to rip it from YouTube, slow it down, zoom in and learn it note by note, chord by chord.
And, only with the help of Video Surgeon I was able to learn this HUGE song for myself and perform it live
in the concert last weekend.

3. What is the lowest level of slow motion that can be used in Video Surgeon?
The slowest motion setting on Video Surgeon is 25%. However, Video Surgeon can easily go to 6.25% by Exporting a video with the 25% slow motion applied, and then reopening and slowing this new video down to 25% again. (25% of 25% equal to 6.25%)
4. How good is the video quality in Video Surgeon?
Video Surgeon cannot enhance the quality of video, so it is important to start with good quality video footage. To a great extent the "garbage in garbage" out adage applies. If you start with good quality video you will be able to slow down and zoom-in and analyze the video. However if you begin with low a quality video, then zooming may be impossible because the quality will deteriorate rapidly. Also, there are differences between interlaced and progressive video formats that will influence quality.
5. I am a musician and I am concerned about the audio quality as the video is slowed down.
Video Surgeon used a high quality audio algorithm to process the audio stream. This is the same Audio algorithm we use in our audio software for musician, and it does an excellent job of maintaining audio quality at significantly reduced speeds.
6. Are the changes I make in Video Surgeon to a video permanent?
Video Surgeon enables you to save changes in two ways. One is as a Video Surgeon project file. This is an internal file format used only by Video Surgeon. Changes saved in project files are reapplied to the video when the project file is reopened, but no permanent changes are made. The second option is the Export option. This option embedded the changes you have made into a new video file, make your changes not only permanent but portable.
7. What is a loop point or looping area, and what is its purpose in Video Surgeon?
A looping area is an area create by placing a beginning and ending loop point on the video timeline. Looping areas area created as a way of isolating a segment of a video so it can be played repeatedly. Multiple looping areas can be created in the same video and each one can be customized separately to play at a separate speed or loop for a specified number of times.
8. Can Video Surgeon print frames?
Yes, Video Surgeon can print frames. It can print a single frame or it can print a series of frames. It also can print to paper, or it can print to a digital image file (jpg)
