Not only they provide gear covering pretty much every basic need of the guitarist but now they also provide a full service to help their clients to play guitar.
Spider Online is a new section of the Line 6 website featuring:
- Lessons & Tabs
- Jam Tracks
- Tones for the Spider amps
I’ve made a quick tour of the website, and so far I think it’s pretty cool.
You can browse through this section via 12 genres (Blues, Classic Rock, Country, Funk / R&B, Jazz, Metal / Shred, Modern Metal, Pop Rock, Punk, Reggae, Rock, Roots / Folk / Bluegrass) or 3 levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced).
The lessons have an explanation text, and corresponding tabs. Above the text there is a player with the corresponding jam tracks to practice the lesson. And in the right column you can get the Spider tone that you can dial in to have the matching tone.
I guess the work is still in progress as all the lessons don’t have their text, and tabs displayed yet but this already evolved since this morning. And I can only guess that Line 6 is working on the same concept for the Pod HD or the Variax. And if they are not… Well they should! Yep, this should be great for a device such as the Pod HD.
I think that they have here a great concept for the Line 6 fans, don’t you think?
