Rated 5.0 out of 5 by from This is a great tutorial!! I have owned a number of Ample Sounds guitars for a few months now and I have been waiting for a tutorial series like this for a while. Although YouTube has a few tutorials which are good they mostly focus on playing live into the software which works well also. But Eli does a great job of expanding on what the Ample Sounds guitars has to offer under the hood with the likes of Riffer and Strummer and a lot more. Even though the interface's for the acoustic and the electrics are very similar I am hoping that Eli does another one for one of the many awesome electric guitars from Ample Sound.
