aztil ,

Good app but could do with a few tweaks

I love this app. The lessons are well explained. I love reading along with the music or tablature it I would love it if you could add the feature to shrink the video so you can see more of the written music so you don’t have to quickly scroll down while playing. Or even better than this make the music scroll by its self as we play along. Another nice add on would be to make the music change colour as you play it so beginners don’t get lost on where they are up to.

Great starter app.

You can’t go wrong subscribing to Fender play. It’s a good app to start and learn the good habits. Once you get the basics you can move on to bigger things... It would be nice to be offered (and possibly a sales insensitive) 12 months for free after spending big bucks on a new Strat!...

No advanced bass :(

As a bass player of a couple of years I looked into this looking for some more intermediate and advanced stuff but I was unfortunately disappointed with how basic even the high levels of the bass section were. I’m sure fender have put in more effort into the guitar section as that is the bigger market so I can’t say much for that however if you are coming into this as a bass player who has even a decent idea of what you’re doing I can’t say you’ll get much out of this unless it receives some higher levels.
