INTERACTIVE LEARNING

Don’t just study Peter’s concepts. Experience chord structures, scales and playing a blues all the way to pentatonic and diatonic patterns first hand with our Living Notation video player. Follow Peter’s solos in real time with our interactive notation system. It’s never been easier to get inside the mind of a guitar master.

ALL THE RIGHT TOOLS

There’s plenty of charts and notation to help you along the way, as well as multiple viewing angles for you to just watch and imitate. If things are moving too fast, slow down a section with the speed control – the pitch always stays the same and you can digest at an easier pace if needed. Or, loop a section with our easy drag and loop system.
