New on TiVoCast: TrueFire’s Guitar Sherpa teaches you to play guitar

Last week (right after I left for vacation), TiVoCast added five new channels of content from TrueFire, the folks who have been putting together guitar instructional videos since 1991.

“Guitar Sherpa” will carry you to your guitar-playing destination, with five channels to choose from:

  • Beginner: Learn how to play hundreds of songs on guitar! Get a grip on the basics with these Beginner lessons on tuning, chords and strumming.
  • Intermediate: Learn dozens of rhythm patterns, lead guitar and improvisation for blues, jazz and rock guitar. Tab and practice rhythm tracks too!
  • Advanced: Expand your repertoire, technique and improvisation skills with advanced lessons for blues, rock, jazz and fingerstyle guitar.
  • TrueFire Concert Hall: Grab a front row seat and tune in on-demand performances from some of the world’s top electric and acoustic guitar players.
  • Little Kids Rock: Get a grip on the basics and start to rock! Designed just for kids, these Beginner guitar lessons cover all of the bases.

New episodes for each channel are published every Monday.

What’s the cost? Free of course, if you have a Series2 or Series3 TiVo DVR connected to broadband. To subscribe to a channel, just visit TiVo Central -> Find Programs -> Download TV & Movies on your DVR, or head to the TrueFire Guitar Sherpa page on TiVo Central Online.
