Elmore Music – Guitar Tips from Chris Elmore is one of the oldest online guitar courses that provide very good learning materials for Beginner Level and Intermediate Level guitar players. They have basically 8 guitar learning products. Out of which Guitar Tips is the best selling one which is focussed towards beginners and intermediate level players. Elmore Music also has another package product called Ultimate Speed Learning System which has packaged all the 8 products under a single label. But the advantage is that you can get a whopping discount of around $500. Or you have the option of buying them as individual courses at a one time payment of $27 each. The courses can be accessed via internet as well as you can download them on to your PCs. But each downloadable ZIP file is large and you would require a fast connection to download it, with dial up it’s almost impossible.

This is a purely DVD based longer duration(of 2 years) training that you can take at the comfort of your home and is best suited for beginners, intermediate level players and also children. The best part is that you can directly interact with Steve Krenz, the instructor at Learn and Master Guitar and also other guitarists through a very lively forum. Having said about guitar instructor, I have to mention about JamPlay, the online guitar course that has taking online guitar training to a new level. They are providing 30 highly professional guitar instructors having vast experience in varied genres of Music. They are very popular these days for their Extremely High Definition Interactive Video Lessons accessible through Internet and priced at an affordable $20/month subscription fees. And they have very good training material for Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced level players. Having mentioned about video instructions, Guitar Tips and Learn & Master Guitar are also providing highly interactive Video Lessons to their students. Hal Leonard and Esteban Guitar are also good options for beginners not planning to whack a lot of money in guitar lessons.
All the 3 guitar courses are good in one way or the other. It all depends on what type of guitar coaching you are looking for. If you are planning to go for a complete DVD based training then I would recommend Learn and Master Guitar. And if you are a beginner or a season guitarist and looking for a pure online guitar course with high definition video instructions I would say JamPlay is the BEST. You can experience online guitar training right from your computer screen. And Elmore Music is the best & most affordable DVD based as well as Online training method for beginners and Intermediate level players.
