The big problem is that most of the benefit is lost if you don't have
the ability to loop, slow down and repeat small sections of videos and maintain the pitch so that

But no one ever designed a video viewing program that was specialist

But......that's all changed now.
BIT IS VERY IMPORTANT
original creation of SloMoDirector has now been superceded and this new
product is bigger and better (and cheaper). What you'll get is a
set of videos on how to use a new open source application to do
everything that SloMoDirector did and a whole lot more.
COULD learn to do this on your own without purchasing Video Trickery
BUT......I've spent months delving into how this system works and
applying it specifically to learning guitar.....and I'm passing all
that information on to you for a mere $14
like I say, you COULD learn to do all this on your own...but you'd be
mad to even think about it.

brain, situated at the back of the head, called the cerebellum. This is
known as the 'motor region'
and is where our automatic human processes
are taken care of.

round with bits

Reflex Actions need no
reflexes are stored there so that when we touch something hot....we
don't need someone to tell us to move our hand. It is a reflex action.
reflexes are obviously 'hard wired' into the brain at birth,
following half a million years worth of evolution.
about learning new skills?
interestingly, any kind of new physical skill (like playing
guitar for example) is stored in the cerebellum along with our 'hard

that new skills are learned is by repeating the behaviour

able to perform the new skill, without thinking, whenever we wish.
Actions with No 'Thought'
how we explain the phenomena of being able to ride a
bike...even if we haven't ridden one for years.
take away concepts like
'musicality' and 'interpretation' then learning to play a musical
instrument, at least early on, is a set of physical actions.
SloMoDirector© means you can watch, copy and perfect
those actions, at your own speed (some people take longer for the
programming to take place, but interestingly also, they usually retain
the skill for longer, go figure...) until the behaviour, in this case,
playing guitar, becomes programmed into the cerebellum.

technology to learn how to make music.

SloMo installed and worked flawlessly. Very satisfied with your product.
As a beginner with some knowledge on fingerpicking, I was having a
problem trying to keep up with exactly what you were doing on The Boxer.
Using SloMo, I was able to figure it out and within a couple hours, I
had the entire song down exactly like you performed it on the video.
Very happy with the software and thanks alot for providing it.

suddenly have been given a new lease on learning
done mate! This SloMoDirector is just
what was needed to aid guitarists, both beginner and advanced. I (we)
can't thank you enough. Just imagine, being able to slow down, and loop
sections of videos by Hendrix, Clapton, Vai, Satriani; Gary
Vinnie Moore to name a few.
about having Segovia show you
slowly and loopfully (Have I just invented a new word?) his
masterful technique? Now there's something to get those
riffs under your fingers a little easier.
realized that those teaching videos
that get us all frustrated because the teacher just says "Play it like
this" and rattles off the riffs so as you can't really follow the
fingering; suddenly have been given a new lease on learning.I
see this being a great aid to all types of teaching videos. The
programme is just amazing Mike.

at the end of the rainbow my friend.
you so much for making this.

to play guitar. . . how about videoing yourself . . .

people don't get on well with
things that are written down. I get emails from people who are trying
to learn guitar using just tabs.
A typical email is...'I just don't get it'. Well with SloMoDirector you
can watch the action over and over then, if you want to, you can
compare what is going on 'on-screen' to what is written down in the
already pretty acomplished but
you just want to speed up
the process. As we get older and more experienced in life we learn that
the act of learning is based on repetitions. Life teaches us that we
can do almost anything, if we have enough determination. The thing
about SloMo is...it just makes things a LOT easier to learn and so you
can learn a LOT more in the same anmount of time.

make any bones about this.
There are always 'hard ways' and 'easy ways' to do things. My
experience is that the hard way is often the best way but . . . .
some things in life are best if we can just find an easy way
to learn them.

I said 'Jerry,
times does a student need to visit you on average to learn a moderately
