CORAL SPRINGS, Fla., Jan. 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Raw Talent Group is celebrating the launch of Raw Talent Guitar and will commemorate their first release with a series of guitar giveaways to their followers via the social networking site, Twitter.com.

"We're pleased to announce that Raw Talent Guitar is on sale today to the public for the very first time," said Lawrence Fisher, President and CEO of Raw Talent, Inc. "We're inviting anyone interested in learning to play the guitar to follow us on Twitter for their chance to win a free guitar."

Raw Talent Guitar is a revolutionary guitar training system that includes a guitar-to-USB cable which allows a student to connect any guitar to their Windows PC. Raw Talent Guitar includes video lessons and practice sessions, and encourages the student to learn at their own pace on whichever guitar feels most comfortable. 

"Raw Talent Guitar lets you learn on your own guitar in the privacy of your own home and features the Real-Time Performance Engine, which grades your guitar playing ability and delivers immediate feedback," Fisher said.

The software's proprietary RT Evaluator hears what the student plays and compares the performance to the instructor's to deliver a percentage score in real time.  The program also includes jam tracks for warming up and practicing solos, and 15 licensed tracks from iconic artists like Oasis, Boston and the Clash, which allow the student to remove the lead or rhythm guitar and play as the guitarist for the band.

Raw Talent Guitar installs with AmpliTube's amp & FX software by IK Multimedia, makers of the iRig for the iPad, and along with the included guitar-to-USB Stealth Plug, also by IK Multimedia, transforms your computer into a sound stage with multiple amplifiers and FX pedals.

"Raw Talent Guitar will shape a guitarist at any level into the type of player they want to be," Fisher said. "The introductory price is $199.00, including free shipping within the 48 contiguous states, and is available Worldwide exclusively at RawTalentGuitar.com starting today, January 25, 2011."

Raw Talent Guitar also includes:

  • Chord generator provides various fingerings for many different chords
  • "My Account" – Progress tracker keeps highest score and monitors improvements
  • Complete lesson guide follows the Raw Talent Guitar lesson plan
  • Digital Metronome
  • Digital Tuner

About Raw Talent Guitar

Raw Talent Guitar is the software training system developed by Raw Talent Group, a division of the South Florida-based Raw Talent, Inc. The company started in October 2008 after the founders realized the limitations of learning to play an instrument with video instruction alone, which lacks instant feedback or evaluations from an instructor or knowledgeable musician.  Many involved with the project are musicians by trade, and many professional musicians and guitar instructors were consulted to make Raw Talent Guitar as accurate as possible. The company mission is to be the worldwide leader in providing the most fun and accurate at-home training and evaluation tools for self-taught musicians and artists for use with their personal computers.
