A course is a full study program complete with video guitar lessons, tab and notation charts, jam tracks, and text commentary from the instructor. Each of our courses contains different curriculum, so you'll want to see what it's all about by reading the full description page and checking out the course introduction video.
You can also jump right to the videos by clicking "Watch" on the style and skill level pages or the "Watch Now" bursts on the full description pages.
During your free 30 day All Access trial you will be able to stream our entire course library online. Once the trial has ended, you'll still be able to view full-length sample video lessons from each course or upgrade to All Access membership to continue your streaming access.
Working with a Course: Instant Download, Software Disk or All Access Streaming
Next, you have to decide how you want to work with the content. You have 2 choices:
Buy Course(s): Instant Download or Software Disc
Purchase a course individually and either download it immediately to your computer or order it on software disk (data-dvd). If you choose this option, you will be working with the course offline in our Desktop app, which contains the videos, charts, jam tracks, and text commentaries.
Courses are now iOS compatible on the TrueFire app (iPhone, iPad, iTouch), Apple TV App and Android app. Software Discs are for computers only (Mac/Windows/Linux) and will not work in a standard DVD player.
