Line 6 and Berklee College of Music announced today that they have entered into an agreement whereby Line 6 will deliver Berklee's guitar and bass curriculum through GuitarPort, Line 6's computer-based jamming and learning tool.

Under the agreement, Berklee will provide Line 6 with a multitude of its online musical-instructional programs and lessons for guitar and bass guitar to be used through GuitarPort. The interactive lessons were developed by top instructors and include varying combinations of play-along audio files, lead sheets, tablature, notation and text.

"From the Berklee perspective, we are very excited to work with Line 6 to reach an audience of aspiring guitar players through GuitarPort," said David Kusek, associate VP for Berklee Media.

The instructional programs for both the beginner and advanced guitar player include: "Instant Guitar" (day one beginner); "Berklee Practice Method Guitar" (novice); "Jim Kelly's Guitar Workshop" (intermediate to advanced); and "More Jim Kelly's Guitar Workshop" (intermediate to advanced). Lessons for bass guitar include: "Instant Bass" (day one beginner); "Berklee Practice Method Bass" (novice); "Rock Bass Lines" (beginner through advanced); and "Slap Bass Lines" (beginner through advanced).

In addition to traditional guitar instruction, the "Jim Kelly Workshops" teach guitarists how to play in the different styles of their favorite artists, including Wes Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Mike Stern, Pat Metheny, Joe Pass and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

"Line 6 is pleased to offer its GuitarPort users the opportunity of a lifetime--the chance to take some of the best guitar lessons from one of the world's best music institutions," said Doug Provisor, VP online services for Line 6.
