For guitar input you need one of the following:
-If you are using an acoustic guitar:
- An internal or external computer microphone
If you are using an electric guitar:
- An adapter like Fender Slide
- OR a small, clean amp that is loud enough for the device's microphone to pick up
Headphones are recommended when using an acoustic guitar.

Great beginner course
I understand how some of the reviewers are less than impressed with the User interface. It does make knowing when to do a challenge or a capstone a little confusing. Standard notation is available, but the user is confined to the modified form of tabulature for all the exercises. On the other hand, you do get a lot of freedom in regard to navigating the course. This is a really well-developed course. New material is demonstrated and incrementally introduced. The notion of "practice, practice, practice" is built into the course. I've played through a lot of methods and honestly, I wish I would have had this to start with. It's not only well developed, but it's pretty fun. I started my 10-year old daughter on it and despite not really wanting to learn how to play, she had a blast. The background tracks are pretty cool and they figure out how to make you feel like you're "jamming" even when all you're doing I'd playing a chromatic scale. All in all, I think this is a great program to start with and as a professional, college trained musician myself of over 20 years, I would highly recommend it.
Developed by musicians
I mean literally, it seems the developers are very good musicians. A poor user interface together with a unpractical landscape-always mode in a web-like screen with no way to copy-paste anything (try resetting your password and type letter by letter the string sent for reset). Altogether makes this a good guitar app (therefore 2 stars) caged in a sad music box.
USED to be cool
After a long hiatus. Tried the iPad app but wow, what happened. The gui is awful. No more clean guitar hero interface. It's just like html website landscape text mode. No easy on the eyes or fun anymore but still has many lessons.
