"We've been amazed by the community that has been building around the You Rock Guitar since it was first shown at CES," commented Inspired Instruments' co-founder and President, Cliff Elion.

The new site features a wealth of audio and video clips of guitar players of all stripes rocking out on the You Rock Guitar. The media clips highlight the You Rock Guitar's significant features, including the blending of guitar and synth sounds. The demo tracks include a smattering of 100 presets often that include real strings, organs, marimba, harp, oohs and ahhs and various pads that blend great with real guitar sounds. These are layered into the presets and are user programmable as are features like alternate tunings, scales, tracks, and over 500 other modes and features.

Additionally, the website includes demonstration videos by renowned musicians, gamers and celebrities, featuring users of all skill levels, interviews from teachers and experts explaining the music education potential that the You Rock Guitar™ holds.
