***** "WOW!!! I never rate anything - but this is AWESOME!!!" - PLOW KING LIVES

***** "The best guitar magazine I have ever read, easy to understand lessons backed up by excellent video examples. I have seen improvement in my playing from the very first edition, great advice for anybody who is struggling to make progress with guitar. The personal support provided by Charl is outstanding. Thanks Charl for this great magazine."

***** "Think of each issue as a month's worth of lessons. It's well structured and comprehensive, and excellent value. Also, Charl responded quickly to an email query I made, confirming for me his commitment to reader support." - Ozfoz

***** "I absolutely dig this magazine and the concept. Charl is a talented and engaged instructor with some real guitar chops, and he's put together a truly excellent instructional guide. Been playing on-and-off for quite some time, but never got around to learning guitar in an organized and methodical way. This presentation is perfect for me, and it's done very well. Excellent layout and design, and very helpful, bite-sized lessons throughout. At a buck-99 an issue, you simply cannot go wrong with this thing. Serious kudos to Charl and his little company for putting out a first-rate product for the iPad." - Spoodler

***** "Imbedding videos within the lessons is a superb idea. Now, not only can you read the articles to learn a new technique but you can see and hear how it should be performed. A lot of thought and preparation have gone into each section and it shows! Excellent articles and plenty of variety. Great mag layout and graphics. Keep them coming!" - GrandpaPaul

Excellent material for someone who wants to learn how to play guitar. Lots of easy to understand videos and diagrams. The instructor is clear and concise. Looking forward to more!

Content Good, App Wanting


The content in Guitar Skills are great supplementary lessons, this coming from player returning after 20 years rebuilding many skills from ground 0, and a good knowledge of what I didn't do right last time. The video content is great, but video is not enough and there is too much dependency on it without real work put into WORDS, so you can easily refer back to things. So I will leave that at "supplementary".

The app itself is reusing a underlying app I've seen in other publications, and it is one of the worst magazine (or text book) implementations I've used, and I do a LOT of reading, for work, personal and guitar. Navigation is pitiful, and this is critical for learning delivery. Worse, the app seems to be built into each issue, instead of the content being independent -- meaning if the app has to be updated, every issue has to be individually updated --RE-DOWNLOADED. Then, the app is frequently unresponsive, so coupled with the navigation and always strapped for time, I throw my arms up in surrender. So, unless this improves, I will not renew. Sad, because I like the content when I can find it.

One last nit pick ... seems like some content disappeared in an update without explanation -- specifically some song lessons which is obvious what happened. That is kind of unforgivable.
