So far enjoying it
For a total beginner like me, it was kinda difficult to find the perfect guitar lessons that fit my needs. I have tried other apps good for structure and practice, but they lack the theory I needed to complement my knowledge, so I could get to know what I was actually doing with my guitar. To play notes and chords just to play them makes no sense to any guitar player who wants to become guitar savvy in the long run.
But then I found a Guitar Tricks, I was doubtful at first and reluctantly paid for the first month of subscription, just to get a taste of it, and the combination of both theory and practice have worked out just fine for me. This app is very resourceful and helpful to get your started.
It’s been week one so far and I’m enjoying the way the instructors handle the levels of teaching and difficulty. They don’t rush you out to get to do anything you are not comfortable with.
Week one and I have learnt a few simple chords and rhythms, and also the importance of taking good care of my gear.
So far, I can say that lessons with Ms. McCormick have kept me in touch and motivated to learn to play and love this instrument.
Most likely I’m looking forward to renew for another month to keep falling in love with it, and who knows, maybe a year.
Keep up the good work, guys. Totally worth it.

Wow this is such awesome feedback! Thank you so much for learning with us. We hope to continue being your best learning resource. Cheers to you!
Learning song section can be very frustrating to use
Some instructors spend too much time talking about theory and other things mixed right in with the middle of the song instruction, irrelevant to actually learning the song, and then fly way to rapidly though the chords, progressions and riffs, making learning difficult and multiple rewinds and replays necessary. (Example; Behind Blue Eyes by Mark Olesky. )
There is no way to mark or loop song sub-sections, so it is hunt and guess tryin to find the section you want to repeat without wasting time listening to the irrelevant taking and or parts you already know again and again . The theory may be interesting , but should come in separate sections, NOT in the middle of trying to learn to play a part of the song. Songs should be broken down into smaller sections for learning , or have ability to mark and loop sub-sections so you can repeat as needed.
On the plus side, transcriptions and techniques are generally good, except for songs with multiple guitars in the original . “Just play guitar 1” is a cop out. There are usually very good ways of combining multiple parts for solo.

Hi there. We definitely appreciate the feedback. Just in case you did not know, looping is part of the app. The icon for looping looks like a circle with an arrow. As for songs with multiple guitar parts, we try to teach all of the guitar sections in a song, and then offer an option for playing a song with a single guitar. But if you want to learn all of the parts, it's in there as well. Otherwise, your comments are really helpful and gives us a better understanding of what users are looking for in lessons. Thank you!
From zero to infinity
I knew nothing about guitar a year and a half ago, but I always thought it would be something I would want to learn someday. So finally, after deciding that I spent too many winter evenings watching Netflix, I bit the bullet on a $200 guitar and bought the gt app. I Worked through all the lessons in fundamental 1 and 2 in 6-8 months. i have been playing songs ever since and learning more each day. Guitar tricks continues to offer song lessons at easy to advanced levels so I know that as I improve, I will never get bored. After a year I decided I liked playing so much I bought a $2,000 Taylor guitar which I love. I will tackle the advanced fundamentals when I decide on a direction. But meanwhile, I’m having too much fun learning songs. I get a little better every day.
