Infinite Guitar was created by musician and guitarist Sean Conklin with input from six other music teachers and guitarists. The guitar lesson data base has over 1,000 video lessons for learning to play the guitar and was developed as an alternative to the current online tutorials or book based lessons on how to play guitar. Infinite Guitar is not just targeted at beginner guitarists but has a large section of video lessons and material for intermediate and advanced guitarists. This website also advertises that new material is added all the time which once you are a member is all free to access.
Infinite Guitar is fairly similar in lesson structure and even site design to many of the other learn to play guitar course websites but it comes in first when comparing the price of Infinite Guitar to the competition. For people who like to try before buying online courses there is a basic membership available for Infinite Guitar which gives you access to a music forum and also access to 26 of the video guitar lessons for free.
The Infinite Guitar website gives you access to all the video lessons, diagrams, lesson text, tablature and even has a guitar forum where members can ask questions and get an answer from the professionals. The main part of the website is the video lessons which make up most of the Infinite Guitar course. The video lessons are generally well done with some use of multiple cameras as well as the advantage of using flash video player which allows you to view the lessons full screen which makes things easier to see if you are sitting back from the screen playing your guitar. One aspect of the video lessons that differs to other website based courses is that the video lessons are not able to be downloaded. Each of the lessons needs to be streamed to your computer, even if you are repeating a lesson, which may turn some people off especially if you have a slow internet connection. Infinite Guitar has seemingly gone with this arrangement to stop people from downloading the lessons and illegally file sharing or copying the lessons.
Apart from the video lessons, Infinite Guitar also has lesson text, play along tracks, tablature and a great members forum. These extra features are great for adding depth to the lessons with most of this material accessible while you are going through the video lessons. Infinite Guitar is an excellent resource for guitar players both beginner and intermediate who are looking for good value for money when it comes to online guitar resources.
