InteGuitar Guitar Interfacing
InteGuitar Interfaces come in a KIT format of 4 x interfaces include access to the Mp3 and Video Tutorials a Free Sydney based lesson or skype lesson.
Today (14/02/16) We worked with a 6 year old girl and her mother come into the InteGuitar studios and we had her playing the D A E chords within half and hour it was amazing to watch. We did not realy have to spend much time pointing out which fingers to use.
Here are the reasons why:
SIZE. Fits on all three types of guitar. Nylon string guitars have a wider neck so it means you will need to stretch the interfaces a bit harder to attach them. It takes about five minutes to set up on the guitar.
EASE OF LEARNING. The InteGuitar is so simple to figure out. The trick is it doesn’t teach you everything there is to know about learning the guitar. It’s about getting the 1st step out of the way. The basics or rudimentary stage of the guitar is the common time when the majority or learners give up trying to learn.
NOTE and CHORD Identification. A limit of five colours is used to describe all of the notes of the Guitar. InteGuitar has realy thought this through and chosen colours that are not about lighting up the Guitar like a Christmas tree but use logical colours that help you remember chord names and notes.
VISIBILITY and INTERFERENCE The body of the InteGuitar Interfaces are made from transparent elastic material that helps the interface to disappear as much as possible even the self-locking hook system is designed to be of minimal interference with the playing of the guitar. Check the homepage video when Jonathan walks closer to the camera you can see how the interface is set up on the neck and its not interfering with his guitar playing.
COVERS HALF THE FRET BOARD. The InteGuitar Interfaces can be re positioned up the neck to about the eight fret and in the future InteGuitar will be using systems that will be positioned up to the 15th fret.
BAR CHORDS. Just when you think you have the basic chords on a Guitar mastered along come the BAR chords. Your heart sinks when you figure out what’s required. The InteGuitar Interfaces come to your rescue again bar chords make you feel like you are starting from the beginning again. The first three frets are where you start and master. Then setting up the BAR chord interface to help you find and learn beyond the first three frets is huge plus.
Mp3 & VIDEO TUTORIALS. The Mp3 Music Tutorials can halve the learning time again. The music tutorials play songs that use the chords displayed on the Interfaces BUT the big plus here is all the chords are called out two or three beats before the change by the chord announcing system.
RECOMMENDED by some of Australia’s top guitar teachers. Guitar teachers have reluctantly come round to the idea because it becomes obvious it’s not about doing them out of business its about getting more students. The system is about securing confidence in a very nervous absolute beginner by getting them into playing a decent sound straight away.
A FREE GUITAR LESSON. The InteGuitar Studio are located in the Sydney CBD so the free lesson is only available to people who can get to the Sydney studios but for those in the rest of Australia and New Zealand we can organise A Skype lesson.
As a beginner which of the three types do I learn on?
It includes all accessories you need to get started:
- STH Electric Guitar
- Electronic Guitar Tuner
Some of its great features
* With a rosewood fingerboard and maple neck, a 2 way truss rod (which means the neck can adjust up or down)
* InteGuitar Refuses to sell these guitars with out the $100 set up. This set-up adds about a week to the delivery time and Includes a fitted set of Diadario Strings or Equivalent instead of traveler strings the factory puts on that are not good enough for playing.
* Wilkinson pickups give a much more powerful signal than a “standard” pickup. The STH comes with a Humbucker and 2 single coil pickups giving more versatility in the styles you can play. Humbucker pickups allow you to produce better distorted tones. Single coil pick-ups are sensitive to electromagnetic interference from Fluorescent lights etc that cause an annoying buzzing sound BUT the twin coil counteracts the interference another Plus for this guitar.
* With the classic strat style bridge with tremolo arm for bending the pitch of the strings & die-cast machine heads that will help you stay in tune longer and make your tuning easier.
