As a guitarist there are four main benefits of using Video Surgeon. Near the top of this short list is time savings. Video Surgeon can save you dozens if not hundreds of hours a year, by enabling you to learn new material on your guitar quicker and easier than you ever thought possible:
Ten years ago, we conducted a survey of guitarists that had purchased and were using a guitar lesson that contained audio that was slowed down to 50% of the original tempo.
We asked them how much easier it was to learn from these slowed down lessons than from something playing at normal tempo. We knew that slowing down made things easier, but what the survey results showed blew us away. Almost 200 guitarists told us that these slow down lessons increased their ability to learn by 2 to 10 fold, with the average being 614%. Wow, that’s huge.
Video Surgeon slows both audio and video, so not only do you hear the audio at a slower speed but you see the hands on the fret board in slow motion also — and on top of this — Video Surgeon allows you to also zoom-in so you can magnify part of the video frame, for example the fret hand. And lastly, Video Surgeon enables you to create loops which isolate a specific segment of the video for repetitive playback.
When you combine, slow motion, with zooming, and looping you have powerful tool for breaking down, analyzing and decipher any guitar riff or song, no matter how difficult it is.
Actually, that’s just the beginning. Video Surgeon also enables you to do frame-by-frame review and analysis, it allows you to print video frames while zoomed in, it performs basic editing, and it can EXPORT changes — creating a new… Read more…
