What’s New

Version 2.2.30

You can now practice with real drum grooves. Practicing with drum tracks is not only useful to improve your feel for rhythm, it's also much more fun than practicing with a metronome.

Our music sheets got a facelift, and so did the bpm notation and the bar indexes.

Pretty good

I played saxophone for 10 years although I haven’t picked it up in the last 20. I can already read music. The problems I have with the app is that if I get frustrated and want to start over, it isn’t easy to back up. Plus it doesn’t really have a very good metronome or explain what eighth notes are or two four time is. It doesn’t really make clear to play two notes per beat of the metronome.
That being said, I do like the way it trained your muscle memory. Maybe you could include some simple songs like they did when I was learning socks. You know, twinkle twinkle little star, over on overture… I understand it’s not the same with the guitar, but there must be some simple song that even at the counter can pick his way through.
Then there is the improv at the end of each session. It would be nice if there were some suggested riffs to go with that.
Instead of playing along with the improv that Frettello offers, I work on other songs. Currently my go to is Steve MILLER’s the Joker. Trying to learn that bass line between each cord strum.

Great learning tool

I started using Fretello a few months ago.
Pros- I really like that it allows you to customize your lessons based on the style of music you are interested in mastering. I also really like that it uses standard tab for the lessons (unlike some other apps I’ve tried that rely on gimmicky interfaces). I think the repetition in the lessons is also very helpful in building muscle memory and I can notice improvements in my playing each session.
Cons- My only real complaint is that it doesn’t provide any feedback on how well you are hitting notes and keeping time. It would be awesome if this was added and you received some sort of grade after each lesson. Then you could see which lessons you didn’t do well on and could repeat if you wanted to improve.

Don't pay attention to negative reviews!

First of all, thanks to the developers for putting this app together, not to mention for FREE!! I'd like to say that guitar playing, like any other artistic skill, is a result of the effort and passion that you put into learning it. I've read some of the negative reviews and comments and I'm certain that a majority of the people who have left them are looking for miracle app that will magically allow them to suddenly be able to play the latest boy band hit or Taylor Swift song and this app isn't going to do that for it's users. That being said, I've been wanting to find an app to help me structure my valuable practice time to help me carry my guitar playing skills to the next level and I believe I have found it in this app. To the developers: Thanks again and ignore all of the haters/posers!!
