Instinct teaches you how to play guitar by using simple instructions on a website. The program lets you use a microphone to record your session, so that you can get feedback on how you play as you learn.
“The goal was, have any human sit down, who has never picked up a guitar before, and with the teaching software and the pitch correction, they can be playing a recognizable riff in the first ten minutes”, says the driving force behind the project, Biran Stoner, to The Verge.
The rhythm and the ability to hit the right tone is adjusted along the way. According to Stoner, this means that people can learn much faster than with traditional courses and self-help methods.
Instinct recently launched Year of Rock, a series of weekly lessons that can be delivered directly to the user’s inbox each week.
