Just doing five two minute exercises a day will help sharpen your skills as a guitarist!
'David Mead : Guitar Gym' is the latest app from David Mead, guitarist, teacher and author of the best-selling Guitar Workout books. The 'David Mead : Guitar Gym' is filled with the most effective guitar practice exercises to develop your technique and turn you into a better guitar player. Create your own daily routine to hone your skills and improve your playing.
The 60 exercises are split into five categories, each containing three levels of difficulty. The categories cover Warm-Ups, Co-ordination, Ear Training, Stamina and Rhythm, but all will test your left and right hand capabilities to the limit.
You can design your own custom workout by taking one exercise from each category to practise every day.
You can hear the exercises in advance and play along using the tab player and there's an adjustable metronome to keep you rhythmically on track.
There's a timer, too, to make sure you perform each exercise for the full two minutes. You can keep a record and view stats for each exercise to help track your progress.

Experienced or beginner this ones great
After looking for a good workout just to keep my fingers loose, I found it in Guitar Gym.
I have been playing for over 40 years and tried load of other teaching apps, some really good ones.
But this was the one I needed. I even dropped my ego and started at the beginning and was amazed at just how much my playing has improved.
I did cheat a bit at first and went straight for the harder exercises, true. But to get the best forget how good you are and find out you can still learn lot. Really it's about getting your hand loose again, maybe stretching a little.
Excellent and worth the low price
Great app for the purpose
I used David’s book “The Ten Minute Guitar Workout” and really liked it, so this was a no-brainer. Does just what it promises: provides loads of two minute workouts to get your fingers moving. Has really improved my speed and dexterity on the guitar.
One of the few guitar apps I regularly use. Helps discipline my practicing and keeps me on track. Nothing fancy, just a useful tool.
