Customer Reviews


There are hundreds (if not thousands!) of guitar tab services out there on the Internet, but this one trumps all! The Pro feature has aided me in learning so many different songs and it makes it so easy to follow the song. I enjoy being able to slow down the song to my speed and learning solos and riffs slowly before learning them full speed. If I could, I would easily give this app a 10/5!! The only problem I have with it is the seeming lack of moderation. It seems that anyone can add tabs to the app/website and that sometimes causes issues (such as 1-2 star tab ratings). This being said, this is still my favorite tab service and I will continue to use it until I can no longer play guitar!

Favorite App!

As someone teaching them self how to play the guitar, and trying to find all my favorite songs in chords I can play, it is really hard; and this app helped so much! It has so far found every song I've looked for, and it usually has multiple versions of each. Even though it does ask you to pay ten dollars in order to use some of the tools, and the best versions of some of the songs, it's still an amazing app if you don't spend the money for extras. I love this app so much, I couldn't stop playing my guitar. I recommend this to any guitar players out there who want to play their favorite songs, but can't yet figure out the right chords themselves. It is definitely worth every cent!

Good tool -- should be fun

I've referenced tabs in UG's website several times in the past. The app is an easier-to-use upgrade to that experience. These guys have A LOT of songs in their library. In addition, the pro upgrade is well worth the extra 10 bucks.

I can't pretend that the simulated guitar in the play-along feature sounds pretty hilarious at first, (think '80s Atari game), but it does its job of keeping me on track without becoming annoying. The included lessons are designed for absolute beginners, so if you're a rusty former player like me who's just trying to remember what he's doing, then they won't be of much use to you. I find the tuner to be useful, too, and am glad that I can archive my favorite tabs for offline practice. Good job, UG.
