Ratings and Reviews
I am just starting to learn to play the guitar and this app is helping me loads. The tutorials are simple and the guy explains it very well in each video. The scoring system motivates you to better yourself which makes it addictive until your fingers start to hurt.
There is just a couple of things that I would like to see altered slightly. The first thing is sometimes the next lesson is a lot harder than the previous one. For example I have been going through the strumming lessons and I am on “Cowboy Chords 3:G” and going from “Livewire” to “Simple Man (in AM)” is extremely hard (probably just me though) because you go from 2 chord simple strumming up and down to 3 chords strumming up and down with a fast tempo song with hardly any time for chord changes. I know you can slow it down in practice mode but I find it does not help with strumming because the strumming needs to be practiced at normal speed (down up down up) but it just needs a slightly bigger gap between chord changes. Not sure if that can be addressed, or just an extra couple of lessons in the middle to help build up to that one.
The second point is, I think it would be good if practice mode was included in my Daily Time Goal. Because sometimes I practice so much that I am actually playing for about an hour before my 30 mins as been reached.
Hope that all makes sense. Other than that it is a very good app. Thank you
Effective if flawed
It works well for motivating and is definitely one of the most useful practice tools I’ve seen. All in all a great tool well worth giving a shot.
It does have some ISSUES:
It doesn’t penalise for the addition of incorrect extra notes like when you hit an extra note in piano or fail to mute a string on guitar
The built in lesson sometimes gives you overly basic material particularly in the explore section
On the piano version (I haven’t experienced it on the guitar section) the timing can be unforgiving leading you to feel that you hit a note it said you didn’t.
Early piano course is too slow having never played a piano before I was getting perfect scores every time until it made me do 4 skill level tests
You don’t really learn any songs from this as odd as it sounds. The fact it gives you the music in a written form allows you to forget it afterward
It could do to have more known music but I understand it a royalties issue there
Gamification is effective and not too pandering
Layout is simple and intuitive allowing ease of learning
Reminders everyday help motivate
Slow building on what you’ve learned builds confidence well keeping you in a work zone throughout.
The practice mode doesn’t remove notes to make it easier like some similar things do meaning there is no confusion as the tempo picks up
It annoyed me within ten minutes
I thought I’d give this app a go. Having signed away my life to create an account I eventually arrived at the tutorials. Whilst I’d hesitate to call myself a guitarist I have owned a couple of instruments for a few decades so I wasn’t overjoyed to have to go through ‘how to pluck a string’ before I could progress.
Having successfully plucked a string I was hopeful of moving on yet every attempt at progress was blocked by a pop-up offering a free 14 days, followed by eleven quid a month subscription.
Okay, we’ve all got to make a living but that applies to me as well. Some months I simply might not have the time to use my eleven quids-worth.
Had it been £20 - £30 a module, fine. I could study at my leisure. So, whilst the content may have been satisfactory from my brief experience I couldn’t say. If you want punters to cough-up to use the full features, fine but the impression I got was that the developers desire for dosh is stronger than any notion of providing a service.
