Finally, Learning Guitar is as Fun as Listening to Your Favorite Songs
What Songs Will I Learn? Here are a few:
Our co-founder, Brian, never took a traditional lesson. He learned through songs instead. 10 years later, after playing many shows and working as a lead guitarist, he is bringing that method to you! Songs like Closing Time, Wagon Wheel, Ho Hey, Eye of the Tiger, The A-Team, Dani California, and more! Learning guitar is now easier and more enjoyable than ever!
How Will I Learn?
This isn't rocket-science, guitar should be easy to learn. That's why we spent months designing the software. It's designed to operate as close to a game as possible. A really fun game. No more music frustration. Our software guides you through each song and corrects you when you slip up. It's just like playing Guitar Hero, but with a real guitar, Acoustic or Electric. Best of all it works on any Mac, PC, or Tablet!
An important part of learning anything is highlighting areas of improvement. We do that better than ever. After every song, a detailed screen displays your progress. Our software finds specific areas of improvement and notifies you. You earn achievements the better you play.
Learn any guitar
I already had a guitar, and requiring a specific guitar for a game that wouldn't work in real life was not what I wanted. That's why we made our software work with real guitars, and any guitars. Acoustic and electric guitars are both fun to play, but each has their own sound. Which ever you prefer, we guarantee it'll work with our site.
Not only does the game work with any guitar, acoustic or electric, the songs are chosen for every guitar. Country, Alternative, Pop, Rock, Soft Rock, and more. Whatever style you love, you can learn.
Powered By Polyphonic Note Recognition
Listening to your guitar, to ensure you sound as good as can be. And notifying you of missed notes. This is the heart of our software. This is your personal, private instructor always helping you get better. Patent-pending.

These teenagers are not your ordinary high school students. Jack is a self-taught developer who built his own tablet at 12 years old, published his first iPhone app at 15 earning half a million downloads, and owned his own app company by 16. Brian is a multi-talented musician, self-taught in guitar, drums, bass guitar, piano, and has performed in front of audiences at some of the top music clubs. The two met freshman year and have been playing music ever since. Now, their passion has become the best way to learn guitar. Join them today!
We've come as far as we can on our own. Now, we are turning to you to make this project a reality. With the funds we earn from this campaign, we will finish the development of the software, film the video lessons, record the songs, and bring you the best product possible.
Risks and challenges
There are always unforeseen challenges when launching a product, but we have done our best to outline and tackle all the obstacles ahead of time. Filming and recording every lesson will take time and skill, but Brian Abod is a qualified and talented musician with experience recording. The finalization of the web site and debugging of the software/note recognition will consume most of Jack's time, but he has successfully run an Internet Software company for 4 years reaching half a million people. The site itself should be up shortly following the conclusion of this Kickstarter campaign. We will continue to work tirelessly to bring the best product to you. Our projected delivery has been carefully calculated, and we fully expect for everything to run according to schedule and products to be delivered timely.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
