Multi-angle videos capture every subtle nuance of Tommy’s technique in detail.
Control your learning pace with interactive features and tools like looping, synching and zooming.
Viewing angles include wide, right-hand and two different left-hand views.
A “tri-view” option enables three angles to show simultaneosly.
For each of the tracks: Tommy shares a little background on his inspiration for the composition and then performs the tune in its entirety. He then walks you through a detailed note-by-note breakdown covering every section of the arrangement and every technique he employs for the track.
Intros, verses, choruses, outros… even the improvisational sections – all with Tommy guiding you along the way.
Video angles can be switched easily during playback for optimal viewing of left and right hands at any point in the performance or during the breakdowns. Any section of a video can be looped continuously for study as well as play-along.
All of the tunes are accurately tabbed and notated. Standard tab and notation is presented on PDF files and can be printed out.
Both Power Tab and Guitar Pro files are provided for individuals preferring interactive tablature.
Interactive tablature allows you to see and hear the tab and notation played out, at any tempo and without change in pitch. A free copy of Power Tab software is included (Windows only). Guitar Pro is readily available online (Windows and Mac).
REQUIRMENTS: Certified Gems is 1 disk, Windows and Mac compatible and will play right off the disk without any installation or hassles. All you need is Flash player for the videos, Adobe Reader for the PDFs and Guitar Pro or Power Tab for the interactive notation and tablature. No other plugins or add-ons required.
This Interactive Video Songbook will run on Windows, Mac, or Linux operating systems.
