Learning by TAB can do that. Good for learning songs. Bad for understanding what you are doing.
Our revolutionary approach takes learning and practice where TAB can’t, bringing to life the workings of music on guitar, with amazing results you’ll love!
With 2-note shapes (intervals), you start to make sense of the fretboard (and keyboard) and learn basic theory on your first day. Grow from there with interactive exercises, studies, lessons, and ear training. You see, hear, play, recognise by ear, and understand how to impact expectations and emotions through using their combinations in scales and chords. Take interactive tests and tasks “on-instrument”. Emuso can auto-correct. You see and hear the difference. Learn how rhythm affects massively affects this, and practice technique.
So we avoid music notation, and de-emphasise the use of note names. Instead, you learn on interactive guitar (bass, piano) using intervals, and with visual rhythm tracks, whose melodic and harmonic content are presented on “on-instrument” during playback.
Address fretboard skills and timing at the same time. Play along with exercises and studies that you can create or download that run on emuso’s rhythm explorer tool, Rhythm-X. For example, you can very quickly build an arpeggio sequence covering the neck, by selecting notes of an initial arpeggio from a scale shape, and loading that onto a rhythm track. The arpeggio can then be transposed through the scale with one keyboard press, and loading that to the track. Then you can practice in time, or click on an arpeggio note in the track to see the shape.
Ear training is part of your answer. Emuso comes with a powerful ear trainer.
Combined with interval-knowledge and their fretboard locations, you’ll leap ahead!
Rhythm is not just strumming chords. It is music’s beating heart.
As well as using Rhythm-X for timing and technique, it is also used to learn from the basics to polyrhythms. You visually design the rhythm and editing it is very simple, and quick to do. You can replace melodic content on the same rhythm, or copy the same melodic content onto a completely different rhythm.

"I have checked out online lessons and always thought you don't get feedback so you don't learn much besides tabs. This format is absolutely amazing because you get interaction and feedback. You get to play with sounds, and one huge thing is the ability and ease to invert chords and turn them into a melody. This is honestly a new approach that I think will progress people that want to learn faster. I also play a little piano as well so the fact that you can do that as well is a huge plus. Additionally being able to read the how, when, and most importantly the why creates better musicians. This isn't teaching people to follow tabs it actually teaches how to be a musician which is ground breaking on many instruments. I really think you are onto something amazing that I have never seen before. Thank you so much!"
“We've found emuso to be a real game changer with our students on the way how harmony and rhythm work together without having to use notation. Emuso really helps our students understand how to explore chord structures and rhythms. We heartily recommend this program to all of our students.”

“Why have I purchased emuso so quickly? Because I see immediately the value and this style of teaching is a match to me. It’s simple, but powerful tool for learning straight to the point. It’s easy to understand, fun and enjoyable to use and practice in real-time. Feeling as you do with a friend, one-on-one. Compared to other online sites for learning guitar, for me emuso is on top, providing more. It is a real journey, not boring, without the ability to cheat yourself. Thank you for the excellent work you are doing!”
"When I started my guitar journey, everything I learnt was some kind of patterns, boxes... Then I picked up some of those music theory books, tried to learn some theory, for example intervals...during my free time and they gave me a lot of difficulties, because I didn't always have my guitar ready to play and the theories seemed to disconnect to the pattern. I have had to always try to visualize there is a guitar in front of me, in my head. This is until I found out about emuso PracticeSuite. It has a combination of theory lessons, an interactive guitar, ear training tool, RhythmX for creating a backing track to jam along...everything in one platform. Nothing can beat the real guitar, but if there's anything that can help you learn along the way, it's emuso PracticeSuite."
WYSIWYP (What You See Is What You Play). As early as over a decade ago, when I was using Fishman TriplePlay, I was looking for software like Emuso. Now, I'm using Emuso in conjunction with the Jamstik Studio MIDI Guitar for guitar instruction. I can design the scales used for each song, rather than being confined to a limited set of patterns. Plus, students can directly "see" the positions I'm playing. Dragging and dropping the root note to move the entire chord makes it intuitive for students to understand the rules of barre chords. By displaying intervals, the structure of chords is also easy to understand. The capo feature is also very helpful when explaining guitar arrangements. Emuso's designers listen to user needs to add or modify features, making it a recommendation for every guitarist, music teacher, and anyone using a MIDI guitar.

Emuso PracticeSuite Pro is a software that doesn’t have its equivalent anywhere. It helps you learn, understand, practice and create music in a 100 % visual way, which means you don’t have to go to a music academy for 10 years before starting to put the pieces of the music puzzle together. Whether your aim is to play, improvise, or compose top-notch music, on guitar, bass, or keyboards, it really can save you a bunch of time – and makes you feel good too! You will soon wonder at the thousand people stuck in a rut when there’s really no reason to stay there (other than what the musical elite has decided on your behalf, I mean). So, if you’re in the mood to learn music the hard, conservative way, don’t try emuso at all, because you will have to change your mind. Jerry, its creator, is always there, willing to help you go faster, smoother, and make your musical journey both pleasant and efficient. If you haven’t quite got me so far … I kinda like this software.
