Very good app... Convinced me to spend money on a real guitar!!


My new year resolution: Master the guitar... Something I sadly ditched in my childhood thanks to an inept teacher.

I use this app to rapidly practice chord finger placements on an iPhone 6 where the size of the fretboard is somewhat similar to the size of the screen. The various songs provide ample practice for chord transitions without having to use the strum hand... And a kick out of having managed to play with songs you actually like.

Strumming needs a whole different type of practice on the real instrument anyways but it would be nice to have a practice zone or tutorial for that too.

I also travel a lot so having these chords to practice on the phone an at airport or in a 4hr train ride really passes the time... And gets some interesting conversations going.

Would like to have more songs to download and the ability to program chords from a different notation or tab sheet into the app for practice.

Carpal Tunnel Warning!!!


I have been playing REAL guitar for 37 years and this app is absolutely dangerous! Never once in all my years of touring and recording have I ever experienced any sort of pain in my left fretting hand. After 5 minutes with this app I have a shooting pain in my left hand. This app is very badly designed and those responsible for making it should have some liability for any medical procedures that are incurred. Take it from me....get a real guitar and learn the proper way. There is no substitute for the real thing. Especially an app like this!!!!

Not their fault


I thought this would be fun to use when I didn't have my guitar with me. But the shape of the phone just doesn't allow for things like this and your fingers slip everywhere. Someone would not be able to learn guitar from this. And I was hoping that it wouldn't make you 'unlock' chords to play things. But it doesn't work anyway so..
