How to Use the Video Looper

Note: The custom video player is only available to Guitar Animal members. Join and/or Log In for access!

Guitar Animal provides members with an easy to use video player that allows you to define sections of any lesson to loop as often as you need. You can even slow down the speed of the looped section. This will really help you nail those tricky riffs. Here's how it works:

How to use the guitar animal video looper

While playing any video on Guitar Animal, hover over the active video window with your mouse pointer. Or tap on a mobile device. Click the AB Loop button. The button will turn green when activated. Now you can either use the keyboard shortcuts I for in, and O for out, to set your loop points. Or drag the handles to your preferred in and out points. Now the video will loop that segment! Click the A/B loop button again to turn off looping. You can also slow the video down or speed it up. Click the 1x button at the bottom right to select your desired speed.

    Ok, I’m risking losing my question rations but I must ask. For seniors would it be wise to tune down a W step , Capo 1 ? My understanding is it returns It to Std. Tuning. and would seem to make it easier to play too. Now, that could require a 2nd capo to change the key wouldn’t it?

    Good morning,
    I always tune my acoustic down a half step(one fret) as it loosens up the top of the guitar and sounds a bit better to me. If you tune a half step down and set a capo on the first fret you will be back to standard tune. You can also move this capo to any other fret location to play in other keys. (no need for a 2nd capo). Just be sure to add one fret. Example- if you are tuned a half step down and the song calls for the capo to be at the 2nd fret then set your capo at the 3rd fret. Hope that this helps. Trent 🙂
