Please Rework Notifications

If you want to get push notifications about the latest tabs for fingerstyle renditions of Ed Sheeran songs, boy is this the app for you.

In all seriousness this is a fantastic app and it’s well maintained, but, developers, if you see this, please find a way to tailor notifications to stuff concerning musicians that individual users care about. For example, whenever you get some tabs for A7X’s cover of “Wish You Were Here,” by all means notify me. I promise I’ll be cool with it. But basically the only time I want to be notified about Ed Sheeran is if his tour bus drives off a cliff.

Five stars.


When I first got this app I was skeptical at first because it was a bit pricy but after the first day I had improved drastically. It made me actually WANT to practice. Whenever I want to learn a song it gives me the chord diagrams of ALL the notes I need to know and practice videos to know what it should sound like. This app truly made me love guitar because I can play any song I hear. If you are not sure if you should get it because of the price of the app, your answer should be YES. Best app for guitar there is!!!!

Not What it Advertises

I found this app when I was searching online for beginner guitar lessons. The website I opened immediately advertised this app and made you close out a second "are you sure about this? It's helped thousands learn guitar" window, which struck me as pushy. Then I wasn't able to access what was on the actual website (using my smartphone) without purchasing the app. It advertises as an app great for beginners, but after spending $3 on it, opening it you are only bombarded with advertisements to spend more money. (Around $20).
After spending $3, I can see a list of songs available but can't access the lessons section without paying more money. Doesn't strike me as beginner friendly. Waste of $3.
