Customer Reviews


This is a great tutorial for anyone who wants to learn fingerpicking. Very well structured and good videos to help you understand the lessons and play along with. The only down side is that you can not print off the pdf sheets as there is no function. Even if you send a sheet to your email, it will not appear as an attachment even when it states it has been sent. Hence this is why i have only rated it as a 3 star.

Early days but things are going great!

Very clear app, easy to use and follow. Information presented in print and via great videos. It's early days through this app for me but getting much from it early on.

Great tutorials, exercises and tabs

Very simple and easy to use. From beginner right through to more advanced skills. It's is really great at making exercises to improve your playing and theory fun!
