The Raw Talent Guitar learning system uses a guitar-to-USB cable that you can use with virtually any guitar and a Windows PC. It doesn’t require you to go out and buy special instrument like the FretLight. The system includes video lessons, a software effects system and an evaluator that actually ‘listens’ to you play and rates your progress. It’s priced at $199, which seems a little pricey, but if you’ve ever shelled out $25-$50 for a 60 minute lesson, you know it’s not bad at all. I would have loved a setup like this when I was teaching myself to play guitar a bazillion years ago.
