MTW Studios has launched a breakthrough new instructional tool that enables guitarists to quickly, cheaply, and easily improve their playing skills while having loads of fun doing it.

Utilizing the amazing MoCap360™ motion capture technology seen in high-end video games and in the making of movies like Matrix Reloaded and Polar Express, the new iPerform3D™ offers a fast and fun way to learn and improve your guitar playing in a way that surpasses existing forms of instruction by leaps and bounds.

The iPerform3D™ lessons are produced using over 35 motion capture cameras, resulting in a display that allows you an unobstructed view of the instructor's hands, guitar fretboard, and strings—from every conceivable angle. You can control the zoom, see exactly what the instructor's fingers are doing on the screen, and even watch the instructor's technique from behind the strings.

Each lesson is introduced by a professional guitar instructor, both in writing and with a video performance of the piece. The lesson is first shown at full tempo, while describing precisely what you are seeing. Then the motion capture technology takes over, allowing you to get inside the lesson in a way never before seen in guitar instructional material, as a 3D-animated model of the instructor steps in and takes you carefully through the main technique taught in the lesson.

For those who read music, a handy toggle feature enables you to optionally display the accompanying tablature while following along with the instructor. iPerform3D™ also allows you to maintain pitch when zooming in and slowing down the lesson.

Only top studio guitarists, touring players, and professional guitar instructors are used in the lessons. With their expert help, you gain mastery of the particular lesson in a fraction of the time seen with traditional video or computer learning tools. The lesson library includes material in several popular genres—from rock to heavy metal and from blues to pop. New material is added regularly. And to make the package even more enticing to future guitar heroes, the lesson library includes "in the style of" lessons, which enable the learner to pick up the exact sound and technique of a famous guitar idol. Featured artists include Eddie Van Halen, B.B. King, Joe Satriani, Jimmy Page, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Green Day, Dave Matthews, Sheryl Crow and more.

iPerform3D™ is an ideal addition to both the budding and more advanced guitarist's repertoire and can also serve as a superb supplement to private instruction. MTW Studios CEO Robert Miller sums it up nicely:

"Not everyone has the time or money for private guitar lessons. We believe that alternatives like books, DVDs, and videos are all lacking when it comes to communicating the information every guitar player needs to get better. iPerform3D™ is truly revolutionary in that the student can finally see exactly what the instructor's fingers are doing. Bottom line is iPerform3D™ takes the guitar player places a video camera simply cannot go and offers a unique opportunity to learn in a way that puts the student in control."
