Beats a Regular Click Click Click
This is a great app. I'm an old-school country and western swing guitarist and between the provided beats and the country package I have everything I need for practicing. Metronomes are much better than having something playing the chord progression a lot of the time since you can stop to work on a particular passage or fingering and pick right back up without having to restart or find your place in the chord progression. I wish you could select your own BPM instead of going by the five BPM increments the way the app is set up, and I wish it had more range in terms of tempo's. I would really rated about a 4.8 instead of 5 because of those limitations, but even so a great, great app and a lot of fun to play with.
Must have metronome
I was so tired of practicing with metronome apps, all those clicks and snaps, that I was delighted to find this group of beats to play to. I usually stick with the straight beats for running scales, but there's plenty of variety for inspiration and to aid writing songs. This is an app I use every day and is why I give it a five star rating. I do have one gripe that I know others have too. It's the fact that it only goes down to sixty beats per minute. If you want to practice a slow ballad, say at 50 bpm, then you have to set it at 100 bpm, which makes it sound too busy.
#1 for practice backbeat
If you are a dedicated guitar player, pro, semi, private, or amateur - I recommend this as the best investment to aid your progress & enjoyment..... This is Not "create your own beats" : this is "many beats, many genres done for you".
I personally bought every "extra" beat pack available as they're so inexpensive and I find at least one or two "favorite" beats in each pack.
I've been using this for a few years now, and it's the ONLY app I continue to use for practice, home jamming, and recommend to my students.
