Sure, Truefire.com could issue their video courses on DVD. But the reason the Florida company—whose name you may recognize if you’ve ever downloaded audio and video versions of GP lessons—chooses the CD-ROM platform is not so you’ll see a smaller video frame and be restricted to watching only on your computer (which is the case with these and most CD-ROMs). It’s because Truefire has discovered that if you’ve got a team of crafty, zealous programmer elves running around your shop—which they do—then damn can you pack a lot of hip features into a CD-ROM.
A perfect example is Slide Shop, the four-disc slide clinic from the ever eloquent guitarist/educator David Hamburger. On these discs, Hamburger covers slide styles ranging from Hound Dog Taylor to Duane Allman, and not only is there video of every example, but Truefire’s custom player software allows you to easily isolate any video segment and loop it to your heart’s content (which can be helpful when decoding a tricky phrase). You also get printable tab/notation versions of the musical examples, corresponding Power Tab files, and jam tracks that let you practice your slide kung fu against tasty backing grooves. Of course, no disc can teach you how to have soul when you play, but, with Hamburger in command and all these interactive weapons of mass education in your holster, these discs can teach you just about everything else. For Windows and Mac users.
