El Cerrito, California (EastBayDaily) — In recent years, the internet has become flooded with videos on how to learn just about any skill. Now, with the guidance of a female entrepreneur from California, an acoustic guitar lesson website adds the heart and soul that so many other educational video sites have been lacking.
Jennifer Martin, CEO of RhythmStrummer.com, believes that internet guitar lessons are finally coming of age with the birth of her website that emphasizes caring, personable teachers with a sense of humor, and provides comprehensive student resources packaged in a colorful, unique, and user-friendly interface.
Until now, guitar lesson websites have focused less on simplicity & entertainment and more on what Jennifer calls “testosterone-based features,” like fast electric guitar riffs, distracting advertisements, complex site navigation, bate-and-switch sales pitches, and busy graphical elements.
RhythmStrummer.com proudly leads its users straight to its free content featuring full lessons of all kinds with no features withheld. Accessing free videos does not require the creation of an account the way most competitors do. “The users are encouraged to know for certain before signing up that this is the community they want to join,” Jennifer says. She wants people to feel relaxed, welcome, and supported as they invest in themselves to learn guitar.
Two types of lesson content are available people who want to learn how to play guitar. Song lessons can be bought for $4.99 each for 30 days of streaming access, or users can choose to buy access to over 100 technique lesson videos for $14.99. Artists represented include The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, and Motown greats.
In the coming months, users can expect some impressive features added to the lesson experience: a loop function that allows the users to choose a segment of the video to repeat while they practice along, as well as multiple speeds with pitch correction. This means a student can slow down the music without having to tune the guitar down. No other streaming video websites offer these cutting-edge features.
With its easy guitar lessons, the site provides well designed, easy to read chord charts, lyric charts, strum pattern diagrams, and chord diagrams. Although the site does use some male teachers, Jennifer emphasizes the traditional feminine values of patience, inclusion, and moral support in the lesson format. Each lesson has lots of repetition, and teachers break the songs down into their simplest constituents- nothing fancy.
RhythmStrummer.com is a new community-based acoustic guitar lesson website with great popular songs, cool and diverse techniques, and engaging teachers who care. For those who want to begin or get better at playing guitar, this is a great place to start.
