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.

    I am on your Green Manalishi YouTube video. I am a new player I think I dig the way you are playing it. kinda disappointed that comments are disabled. Because this was the question I would have asked out of the gate. Unless I missed something I don’t even know how I’m supposed to have the guitar tuned. So I can’t even get started. I am not smart enough to figure it out at this stage. I think I can move my fingers around to copy you. So let me know what the tuning is, please. Additionally, don’t worry about what nimrods write. I’ll take care of them on the Green Manalishi videos ;-). Keep on rocking – Marc

    Hi Marc. Standard tuning for this one. We’ll always tell you if a song is in an alternate tuning. Have fun learning it!

    Hey Guitar Animal, thanks for the info. I will start working on it either before or after the Patriots vs. Titans playoff game. Hope you enable the comments, but this works too.

    Whoa! Having a tough time completing the 3rd chord shape. My fingers aren’t long enough to make it happen correctly. Any tips?

    • Trent Craycraft

      Good morning Marc, yes this is a tough chord shape for sure. With a bit of practice and some stretching you should be able to finger it correctly. just keep trying to finger it and it should improve over time. This song is like a 9 out of 10 on the difficulty scale so it will be very challenging to master for a new player, Give yourself some time to get it down, I applauded your choice of working such a difficult song so early in your playing. 🙂 good luck. Trent
