A truly fun way to develop your guitar skills!

At the heart of the Guitropolis CD-Rom lies the most comprehensive multimedia guitar course ever devised for beginners who are into gaming. Starting with the basics, the ten chapters (one for each location) teach you everything you need to know to start playing the guitar, and include several songs for each of the lessons (over 60 songs in all). And they're all designed around a cool fantasy that will be as appealing to gamers as it is to aspiring guitarists. For electric and acoustic guitars. No special equipment or connections are required!

What the....??!?!?!?

Comments about Alfred Guitropolis CD-ROM:

Okay, if you're like "most" computer users who are using Windows XP, this program WILL NOT work for you. Go to their web site for "technical support" and all you'll see is references to Win 95 and Win NT. Come on... This program is about 5 - 7 years behind current technology and won't run on the majority of the computers in use today -- and this is version 2.0!!! I have a Gig of RAM in my system and this program keeps asking for 3MB of virtual RAM! Oh! and the video only runs at 640 x 480. So much for this program teaching me anything about playing guitar.
