Great for Beginners and Intermediate
10 bucks for an app that says Intermediate to Advanced and really is for beginners is a rip off. However, if you have a decent grasp of chords this is the app for you. Those more advanced don't waste your $. The shame is you don't really get a sample of what is in this app before you install. True fire should allow some previews so people don't waste their $. Frankly, I want my $ back!
Ok, but can't print tab sheets
I love true fire and have a membership to their full site, and was glad to find the mobile apps but I think they should clarify how limited they are. Can't send the tab samples to a printer, and can't down load the mp3 jams to use outside the app. Ok for watching on the train to become familiar with the course but does not compare to the PC versions due to these limitations.
This an amazing guitar app. I bumped into it by accident and it has so many things I have been wanting to learn. I can't praise it enough. I am taking lessons, and this app just adds so much extra.
