Welcome Guitar Player

GuitarSharp is the ideal music software for helping you take your acoustic guitar, electric guitar or bass guitar playing to the next level. The easy to use features will mean you can improve your guitar skills at a pace that suits you. Lets show you some of the features.

Looping a Riff

The GuitarSharp software has been written by guitar enthusiasts like you. Learning to develop your guitar playing skills is all about finding the right tools to help you. There are features that improve your understanding of the guitar and features that help develop your playing skills. Even if you just want to play those well known riffs, then it is straightforward to simply drag and select the riff and loop it until you play it just perfect - just like shown here.

The Virtual Fretboard

Finding your way around the fretboard is fundamental to improving your playing. So GuitarSharp has a nice big clear fretboard which shows where your fingers should be. The fretboard can also be fully customised with the displayed ordering of the frets and guitar strings. The note names can also shown to give an appreciation of the music you are playing.

Playback Trainer

Getting your fingers to the correct frets at the right time can be challenging when learning a new piece. The Playback Trainer is the ideal tool for this problem, as it can be used to play the music at half of its original speed. Now you have enough time for your fingers to learn which frets they should be on, and which frets they should move onto next.

Speed Training

A key element of good guitar software is to help improve your guitar playing, and the Playback Trainer's Training Mode is ideal for this. It allows you to start playing at half speed and then gradually increment the playing speed automatically once the music has been played a few times. This means you don't need to take your hands off the fretboard as the speed increases. Through repetition and visualisation you can learn the song bar by bar.

The above steps are a great way to learn playing music at a comfortable pace. Rather than having to learn the whole lot in one go, you can progress at your own pace. Often a bar at a time, but for some of those really tricky solos it's a case of a few notes at a time sometimes, everyone has different playing abilities. If you need to get some inspiration from other guitar players, GuitarSharp allows online video tutorials to be opened directly within it. Watch these lessons right within the GuitarSharp software and then flick back to the music to try out what you have learnt.
