Great Value!

After spending hundreds on private lessons I stumbled on Four Chords. This is without a doubt the best beginners resource available. Worth the very reasonable price! They're adding new songs almost daily, and it's really a lot of fun to play and practice. I don't dread the hours spent practicing anymore.

Try this app you won't be disappointed. The chord recognition piece doesn't work very well, but even without it it's still a very well thought out solution to learning chords and transitions.

You will learn chords faster and better using this app, and as a bonus, you'll have a lot of fun too!

Great way to learn guitar

I love this app. There isn’t a better way to learn. I’ve been using if for about a month but it recently started acting buggy. Seems to hiccup a bit ( not when I’m receiving email or text). Also, stats for number of songs played doesn’t count properly. Closing and opening program doesn’t ‘reset’ it and only sometimes does turning the iPad off/on work. Lastly, noticed that the score for some songs show a chord that isn’t even in the song and docks you 200 points for not playing it. Please fix the bugs - then it is a 5 star app.

This app crashes on older IPads.

I have used and enjoyed this app for almost two years. Now it however crashes and is not useable on my first generation I Pad and my older I Pad mini. It used to run fine on them. I was told that recent enhancements such as tracking {no use for that at all} made this happen. I do have an I Pad pro now that it runs fine on but I prefer to use it as a midi controller using Sample Tank etc. and not have to tie it up running the 4 chord app. If you have an older Apple device this app will not work well. This is a known problem for them but they have not made it a priority to fix it.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your review. Sorry for the inconvenience but crashing problem might happen on some of these older generation of devices. We are constantly looking for solution to lighten up the app so that the app can work smoothly on those devices. However, it is not going to be quick fix unfortunately.
