I love this app. I am teaching myself jazz guitar and have found it very useful. I think the explanations are clear and concise. Plus they give you tab and video demonstrations. I wish they had more jazz lessons and an iPad version. Excellent app!
Ok, the functionality of this app is horrible it doesn't explain how to use it or where these 8 lessons are, and even as you figure it out there are other glitches such as the videos not downloading and the tablature that you can "follow along" with is blocked by the volume control... I want some updates or better yet a refund
Love the app I have been playing guitar for 25 years and understanding Jazz is a bit of a new venture but the app does a good job of explaining it.
BUT I am now having a problem with ios9 the app keeps crashing.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
