Just doing five two minute exercises a day will help sharpen your skills as a guitarist!

'David Mead : Guitar Gym' is the latest app from David Mead, guitarist, teacher and author of the best-selling Guitar Workout books. The 'David Mead : Guitar Gym' is filled with the most effective guitar practice exercises to develop your technique and turn you into a better guitar player. Create your own daily routine to hone your skills and improve your playing.

The 60 core exercises are split into five categories, each containing three levels of difficulty. The categories cover Warm-Ups, Co-ordination, Ear Training, Stamina and Rhythm, but all will test your left and right hand capabilities to the limit.

In addition you can add extra categories via in-app purchases of the David Mead Guitar Gym expansion packs. Expansion Pack 1 adds 48 exercises in four all new categories - Arpeggios, Modes, Cross Picking and the Major Scale.

You can design your own custom workout by taking one exercise from each category to practice every day.

You can hear the exercises in advance and play along using the tab player and there's an adjustable metronome to keep you rhythmically on track.

There's a timer, too, to make sure you perform each exercise for the full two minutes. You can keep a record and view stats for each exercise to help track your progress.

"However you use the 'David Mead : Guitar Gym' app, I hope you see the benefits in your playing soon!" - David Mead, Sep 2012

Very useful to any guitarist's skill level

Having studied degree in music and worked as a music teacher and head of music department for over a decade - I had taken a long break in playing. This app really helped to improve my skills and stamina whilst reminding me about good technique- a little buggy by perfectly functional!
Some of the scale shapes seem a little unusual but you can substitute them yourself- some lovely arrpeggios up the neck in the newer versions too- definitely worth it!

Good app but lots of room for improvement

Love the structure and simplicity of this app, and when it only takes ten minutes to do some useful guitar practice I really have no excuse to not do it every day!

All of my quibbles with the app are on the technical side - it doesn’t display well in landscape mode on iPhone for instance, and it can sometimes be fiddly to connect to Bluetooth devices. It would also be nice if it made more use of modern iPhone features like notifications, 3D Touch etc., for a smoother experience. Finally I’d really like to see new exercises released periodically.

So overall, love the idea behind the app but would like to see more done to keep it up to date.

Great workout for flying fingers

The exercises are variously technical and you are basically doing “reps” to increase muscle strength, dexterity and memory. This is just what I need to enable me to play more interesting, creative stuff.
It may seem dull and repetitive but once you get into a routine of a few minutes a day your playing abilities will advance rapidly, possibly even exponentially.
