Video Guitar Lesson, Instruction, Solo

Mac OSx 10.12 – 11.X Video Surgeon 3 for Apple
Win 7 – Win 11 Video Surgeon 3 for Windows

Have you ever watched one of those online video guitar lessons and tried to keep up with the demonstrator while trying to learn a particular song or solo? Some of these are played so quickly or they are so complex that it’s difficult to follow along. There is a solution for online guitar video instruction such as this and that is a program called Video Surgeon. With this program you can slow down the video to catch each note that is played one at a time. You can also zoom in on just the hands so that you have a really good view of the finger action on the guitar. Watching a video guitar solo online while trying to learn how to play a guitar is really difficult if you have never played a guitar before. What you really need to do is slow the guitar video down so that you can see exactly what is being played and maybe also add a loop for a specific section of the video if you are having difficulty learning a particular piece.

Video surgeon can help you with your lessons and make it much easier to pick up the lessons and learn to play a guitar. Often it means that you need to repeat a chord over and over again until you can do it without mistakes and without looking at your fingers. Repetition of a chord can be set up with this software so that you can play the specific section of guitar video instruction that you are having difficulty with. Before you know it you will be playing along with the video.

Most video lessons become more difficult as you progress. Capturing the video lesson and then using the software to slow the guitar video down will help you learn your lessons even faster. Video guitar lessons abound on the internet and on YouTube. Some lessons are demonstrated with someone doing a video guitar solo in front of a camera. If the camera is not well positioned or the person doing the demo is not focused on making all of his finger movements really clear, you can have a really difficult time learning what they are trying to teach you.

Grab the video with the software, create a project so that you can always come back to it later and then add functions to it so that it is easier to follow and pick up what you need. Slow the video down, zoom in on a section and create a loop for a particularly difficult section you are having trouble with. It is easy to install and you can be using the software within minutes of installing on your PC.
