Description from the packaging.

Intuitive Technologies in association with James Lee Stanley presents:

Learn To Play Guitar

Arranged as originally performed by The Police.

Every Breath You Take and Message In A Bottle.

Welcome to Learn To Play Guitar, an exciting, interactive and fun way to learn to play popular music on your guitar and/or bass. Presented by James Lee Stanley, an Emmy Award-winning and Grammy Award-nominated recording artist, now President of Beachwood Recordings, a Hollywood, California based record label, Learn To Play Guitar takes you inside Message In A Bottle and Every Breath You Take like no other teaching system can because of your VIS player.

Learn To Play Guitar explains how to tune your guitar, how to play the notes for each song and also why the notes and chords in these songs create the moods they do. Because your VIS has a music synthesizer built-in, Learn To Play Guitar can slow down the music so you can learn it note by note without changing the sound of the notes. As you progress, you gradually play the notes faster and faster until you are playing like a pro!

Learn To Play Guitar takes you inside Every Breath You Take and Message In A Bottle, two songs arranged as originally performed by the recording group, The Police. Each song is analyzed and described by section: Verse, Chorus, Bridge 1, Bridge 2, etc. and demonstrated. Then, after selecting which part you wish to learn: Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar or Bass Guitar, Learn To Play Guitar takes you step-by-step and note-by-note through learning the song. Each finger position is shown and each string and finger position is highlighted on the screen in time with the music. In no time at all you'll be playing just like the original artists. After you've learned the song, you can use this CD to show your friends how well you can play, because the songs are recorded on normal CD music tracks with each part missing (for example: song with lead missing so you can play along). It's even been recorded with both lead and bass missing for you and a friend to play together! Sing along versions included too!

Learning benefits:

  • In-depth explanation of each song.
  • Learn at your own speed.
  • Practice with a tireless teacher.
  • Play along with a standard CD player.
  • Can be used for learn-to-sing project.
  • Builds self-confidence and self-esteem.
