WHAT ARE “LYNCHLICKS”
This site features over 100 of Steve Lynch’s downloadable video-based guitar learning modules. Theses high-definition videos (with related tab) are playable on your computer using your Windows Media Player. There are hundreds of other sites and instructors that teach you how to play the guitar…but this site is focused on teaching you innovative licks that will help you take everything you’ve already learned to the next level. As you learn Steve’s licks, you’ll also be picking up on some of his advanced techniques. Pay attention to organization and structure and learn to use these techniques when developing your own solos
WHAT DO I GET WHEN I BUY A LICK?
you buy an individual lick, you will download a .zip file that contains the WMV
video, PowerTab file and printable .PDF of the tab. In the video, Steve plays
an innovative lick in real speed. Then he slows it down, breaking down the
individual elements. You will also get a PowerTab and a .PDF of the tab showing
you the lick note-for-note.
When you buy a catalog or library, you will download a zip file that contains many subfolders. Each subfolder has a video, PowerTab and tab .PDF. These folders can be very large. The entire library, when downloaded, is over 2 GIGABYTES.
WHAT ARE THE MEDIA TYPES I’LL BE DOWNLOADING?
All videos were shot in high-definition and converted to a Windows Media Video. The files are all DRM protected, which means you can only play them on the computer you originally downloaded them on. At the time of purchase, you are provided with a password to unlock the file on your computer. In addition, the tabs are provided in a PowerTab format and as a .PDF. You can download any PowerTab player that plays the .ptb extension. You’ll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to open and print the .PDF files.
WHAT IS DRM HOW DOES IT WORK?
DRM (Digital Rights Management) is a popular tool that allows organizations to protect their copyrighted material of downloadable media. The media file is encoded with a key that limits its distribution and use to only the person who paid for it. For details, please see: DRM FACT SHEET
WHY CAN’T I SHARE MY FILES BETWEEN COMPUTERS
All of our videos are DRM protected, and the license you receive when you download the files limits the ability to open your files to the computer they were downloaded to. Please make sure that you download the files from the computer you wish to access them on in the future.
WHAT FORMAT IS THE TAB IN?
Tabs can be played back in PowerTab form (.ptb) or can open or print the tab in Adobe Acrobat Reader (.pdf) Links to these software applications are provided above in the FAQ.
HOW LARGE ARE THESE FILES?
Well, they are really large. They were shot in a studio in high-definition so that they could be broadcast for on-demand cable. The files were encoded as Windows Media Files. This reduced the size a bit, but for quality and purposes, we left them as very high resolution files. The files range from 10-100mb each. The entire library is over 2 GIGABYTES. This means if you want to purchase the library, you are going to need a broadband connection, and you will need to be patient while the files download in the background. The good news is…once they are on your computer…they look and sound great!
WHAT KIND OF BANDWIDTH
WILL I NEED?
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO DOWNLOAD THE LIBRARY?
Broadband for sure. CABLE or DSL. If you are purchasing the entire catalog, don’t even try this with a dial-up connection…it could take DAYS! You may want to start the download process in the evening so all your files are waiting for you in the morning. At a 100kbs connection (slower than typical broadband download rate) it would take about 6 hours. At a 200kbs connection (typical broadband download rate) it would take about 3 hours.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER I PAY FOR MY FILES?
Immediately after using Paypal to purchase your downloads, you will recieve an email from us. The email will have a link that allows you to DOWNLOAD the file from our servers. In that email, you will also recieve a username and password to UNLOCK the file. After downloading, simply open the downloaded files and play the video file. The first time you try and play the file, you will get a windows prompt to input your USER NAME and PASSWORD. This is NOT YOUR SITE USER/PASS...this is were you put in the USER/PASS that we sent to you in the mail to unlock your downloaded files. NOTE: Depending on your security settings, you may need to submit the USER/PASS a couple times before the file will unlock. This is typical. If you try a dozen times and it won't unlock, CONTACT US and we'll walk you through it.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I HAVE A TECHNICAL PROBLEM DOWNLOADING OR PLAYING MY FILES?
CONTACT US and we’ll work through it. Please be patient. We are all teachers and are typically teaching all day and into the evening. We will get back to you though as quickly as possible. THANKS FOR YOUR CONTINUED INTEREST AND SUPPORT IN OUR LIBRARIES!
