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:
Video Surgeon enables you to breakdown any guitar video and make the difficult and complex, simple. Not only can you see what is being played but you can see HOW it is begin played.
Whether a student or teacher, the 1-2-3 punch of slow motion, zooming and looping make learning much quicker and easier. Add to this speed trainer and split screen playback and you have a powerful learning tool.
VS’s ability to breakdown any guitar video and make the difficult and complex simple means that you can use the video of any good guitarist as a learning tool. There is no need to buy training videos when you can learn from those available in the public domain.

While practice is important, don’t overlook the importance of having the good tools. Video Surgeon has many of the same features found in high end video analysis software used by the pros at a fraction of the cost.
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
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.
And remember this was 10 years ago… our product has been vastly improved since that time. It allows you to slow down much further while still retaining quality, it has speed trainer, frame by frame analysis and split screen playback.
Don’t Take Our Word For It – See It In Action Below
When you combine, slow motion, high quality audio, with repeated playback (looping) with speed trainer (to gradually increase or decrease speed) and zooming so you can zero in on any part of the video, you have an almost unstoppable combination of powerful tools for breaking down, analyzing and decipher any guitar riff or song, no matter how difficult it is.
- The 3 brief videos in this section demonstrate the power of Video Surgeon. They are:
- A normal video that you might find anywhere on the WWW.
- The same video using Video Surgeon with slow motion, zooming, and full screen
- The same video again with slow motion, zooming, and full screen but in split screen
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 zoom-in so you can magnify part of the video frame, for example the fret hand. 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
While dedication, practice and hard work are important components to learning guitar, don’t under-estimate the importance of having the correct tools. I don’t know about you but, on more occasions than I care to remember, I have had the unpleasant experience of seeing relatively small tasks that should have been completed in an hour or so, become half day projects simply because I didn’t have the tools I needed. Playing guitar is no different. Tools can be a big help, and Video Surgeon is one of those must-have tools that will help you get the job done efficiently.
Video Surgeon was specifically designed for guitarists, not some IT guy or gadget wizard. You will find the basic operations intuitive and easy to use. Slow motion playback, zooming-in, creating looping areas to isolate segments, split screen playback so you can see BOTH strumming and fretting hands simultaneously and, of course, Speed Trainer.
Speed Trainer is a function within a looping area that automatically increases or decreases the speed of playback each time it loops, based upon our customized settings. You select a beginning and ending tempo – and a percentage change, and Video Surgeon will do the rest. Speed Trainer allows you to practice with increasing speed, thus enhancing your learning.
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 has split screen playback, the ability to annotate videos, and much, much more. Following below is a more detailed listing of some of Video Surgeon’s major features.
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.
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.
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, etc.)
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.
This feature allows you to open and play two videos simultaneously. These might be before and after videos or they might be the same video with one instance zoomed in on the fretting hand and the second zoomed in on the strumming hand. This side-by-side view allows you to compare or learn from two different videos in real time.
Speed Trainer allows you to set a beginning and ending tempo for a specific area of a video you have isolated within a loop, and then designate a percent change. Once you start ST it will begin playing at the beginning tempo and then automatically increase by the percentage change each time it loops until you reach the ending tempo. The ST tools is a great way to practice and helps you gradually build up speed.
Most of the time we watch and learn from videos as they play. However, it can sometimes be helpful to view a video in reverse motion to further analyze or tease out additional information.
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.
The ability to insert text or shapes onto a video allows you to annotate the video which may be helpful for learning teaching purposes
Most of the changes made to a video can be made permanent by Exporting the video and creating a new one with your changes embedded in it. Videos created using the Export function are standard video files that are portable and can be moved and played in any standard video player.
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.

P.S. I may also use the program in my other interest of horses ie: horse racing, horse jumping, dressage shows. Sometimes slowing down and zooming in can make for an interesting study of those sports.

In the past, Google among others, have sued to block some products that perform downloading functions. However, it’s important to remember that many uses of copyrighted material are considered legal under the fair use doctrine to U.S. copyright law. The fair use doctrine makes exceptions for non-infringing purposes like news reporting, research, education — or just for laughs. Consider YouTube’s first big legal copyright challenge, a 2007 video of a baby dancing to the Prince song “Let’s Go Crazy”. Universal Music Group, the copyright holder of that hit song, sued the baby’s mom for copyright violation. A judge ruled in favor of the mom and the baby, citing fair use.
Two things have happened recently that concern us. Once is that Google has terminated one of our Adwords accounts citing the downloading module as the cause. Even more recently Google has sent a cease and desist letter to a company that sells a YouTube Downloader application, similar to what we provide in Video Surgeon.
Because of these developments we have made a business decision to remove the downloading (Sniffer) modules Video Surgeon. It has already been removed from Song Surgeon, our other major product that previously contained it.
Version 2 of Video Surgeon will not be affected by this decision and it will continue to contain the downloading modules. However, like all older versions of our products, now that a newer version has been released, it will no longer be updated. Accordingly if this downloading module ceases to function at some point in the future we will provide support for it or fix it.
We know that many customers use and like this downloading feature. What we have done, to continue to provide this functionality, is to consolidate the downloading modules found in our other products into a single product called Download Surgeon. This new product has many added capabilities over what was found in Video Surgeon. As a Video Surgeon 3 customer, you will be able to buy this product at a 40% discount using this link:
In addition, we have built an online Youtube downloading module that you can try for free. Here is the link:
These two options allow customers who want these downloading features to be able to access them, while at the same time, limiting our business exposure and shielding our main products, like Video Surgeon, from any adverse effects.
