The ‘Parts of the Guitar’ window indicates and describes every component that makes up the instrument, such as the headstock, the bridge, the nut or the neck. Similarly, the ‘Holding a Guitar’ category features details about the position that your body and your hands should be in, in order to play properly; it does however lack explanatory images.

The ‘Strings’ window lets you discover how notes are represented on the guitar, while in the ‘Chords’ section, you can learn more about basic and minor chords, open suspended and 7th chords, as well as Barre chords on the A and the E string, each one offering information about the required finger position.

The ‘Tuning the Guitar’ category can teach you how to tune the instrument, but this too lacks the visual representation that might have been appreciated by inexperienced individuals. Finally, in the ‘Strumming and Fingerstyles’ section, you will learn how to generate the sounds you want, depending on how you move your digits on the strings.
