Buy an Apple computer, get music lessons

That's right. Apple now has guitar, piano, and other music lessons built into it's operating system "Garage Band" files.

Guess I didn't need to spend as much on music education afterall...darn it.

The GarageBand Lesson Store Could Be Apple’s Next Revolution In Music

Apple’s Lesson Store is the perfect compromise. Each lesson offers a lengthy video of the artist discussing how to play their song section by section, which is displayed alongside the music being played (either in tab or traditional notation) and a diagram of where your fingers should be on your instrument. And because you’re dealing with the original artist, you know you’re learning the song as it was meant to be played.

True to Apple tradition, the interface shines. You can quickly jump between sections, slow down video playback to half speed without distorting the notes, and can easily set the program to loop any segment of music until you’ve got it down. I honestly can’t think of anything that would make it any better.
