The real revolution was the emergence of courses to play the electric guitar in an electronic form with the use of multimedia such as videos, audio recordings and computer programs. Now the author of the material can combine together various educational technologies that can help the beginner guitarist quickly find and start the rapid development in the way of learning the game on his musical instrument. It is easy to imagine that the written comments, accompanied by images of scores and descriptive videos provide everything you need to make your play the electric guitar became more and more better. Of course, an important question remains the quality of the material and its proper structure, which, however, remains on the conscience of the authors of distance learning courses and editors of publishing houses. Another important aspect of is the question of the consistency of such training courses as compared to the classical model of education teacher and pupil. Of course, there is a category of people to whom until recently attributed themselves and I strongly which receive distance learning, a position which rejects the possibility of 'replacement' of living teacher computer. Let's try to solve this. Typically, proponents of such views give some arguments which I would like to question.

The first argument is the need for clarity, or put another way, 'playing the guitar it is necessary to show'. I agree with that, but such an argument could be applied to the 'paper' tutorial, but in electronic version is almost always there are a number of visual exercises and video clips of musical phrases, which are often filmed in close-up. What could be clearer? A second argument in their favor the opponents of such phenomena as tutorial game on electric opinion believe that living is better teacher explains. Here I want to say that every teacher alive, every time he is in any particular state of consciousness that is not always good. The teacher can simply forget something to explain or correct any error.

When you create a multimedia tutorial on electric guitar playing is nearly impossible, since there is self-control, and have control of the editors. The following is an argument about the lack of control teacher – pupil during distance learning. But we can not agree, as most authors create forums support and offer to send them your creations to parsing errors. The apparent advantage of the electronic tutorial is its price, which can be equivalent to several tens of minutes sessions with a tutor. Thus, in my view, electronic game tutorials on electric start up a real competition to tutoring classes. Of course, the choice of teaching methods is a private matter, but I think here there is something to think about a beginner guitarist.
