Editors’ Notes

Whether your idol is Eric Clapton, Slash, or a local garage-band legend, the first step to your own guitar godhood is practice. Ultimate Guitar Tabs has a breathtakingly vast catalog of songs to learn, letting you isolate tricky chords or play along at a slower speed as you practice your fingering. It’s both newbie-friendly and advanced enough for veteran shredders, with a cool suite of built-in tools, including a tuner and a metronome. Heck, it’s even got ukulele tabs. Rock ’n’ roll is truly universal.

The Pipelayer

A must have for new players

I am going to make a bold statement and say that UG has made me the guitar player that I am today. I am not a great guitar player by any means but considering I am 53 years old and basically took up the guitar at 50 as I resolved myself to learn. I have always been a music lover but the ability to find chords for almost any song ever made is awesome. Also being able to easily transpose songs into different keys is awesome as well. 3 years ago I had 2 guitars, my dads old Washburn and a jumbo Alvarez that I bought for my teenage son 7-8 years earlier to play at church . I now own 3 Martins, 4 Taylors, an Ortega traveler, a Córdoba 55FCE, and several more that I swap around and play. It has changed my life. I am getting to do something that I only dreamed about all my adult life. I have now actually got a dozen or so friends and relatives playing. I tell them: first and foremost get the Ultimate Guitar app, learn to navigate it (which takes about 3 minutes), then learn to play four simple chords....G, C, D, & Em and you can play thousands of songs. With a capo and the ability to transpose any song, it’s all that one needs to do. Thanks guys for a great app. I just got a new Ortega Quantumloop stompbox. Maybe I will post a video so all can see what a 50 something year old man can do given a love for music, a willingness to practice learning 4 chords, and the Ultimate Guitar App. FYI, I do have quite a few more chords in my repertoire now...😉


A must-have for any level of guitarist

I have been using ultimate guitar tabs since I first started playing. Since then, it’s only grown and the plethora of tabs available has made progress as a guitarist so much easier. Any song you can think of has tabs on ultimate guitar- most now even have bass tabs and some have drums. Plus, around 95% of the tabs are free and if you can’t find tabs for a song, you or anyone else who’s got a good ear can tab it out and upload them!
I never bought premium because, well, I’m a cheap student and I always just looked at all the free tabs and looked at music videos, trying to splice it all together and get the closest sound to the original song. Until the most recent update, that is, when ultimate guitar just upgraded me. I just opened the app, got a notification that said thanks for using our app for so long, and suddenly I had all the pro tabs (For those who don’t know- the pro tabs have a lead and rhythm guitar and usually a backtrack, bass, drums, and other effects and it’s all tabbed out with timing and rests).
This is an app by guitarists for guitarists and whether you’re using it for chords to just get started, or you’re uploading tabs and training your ears, there’s something here for everyone. I cannot recommend this app highly enough.
