iPlayMusic has launched
Beginner Guitar Lessons for the Mac, a guitar learning program made for the Mac and video iPod. It costs $49.95.
More than four hours of video are presented in 140 individual lessons as iPlayMusic teaches you the basics of how to play the guitar. You’ll learn how to play chords, get tips on riffs, transitions, strumming and more. It also teaches how to play more than two dozen popular songs from artists like The Beatles and Bob Marley.

Instructions are also provided in how to podcast using iWeb and managing recorded songs in iTunes.
