The definitive online guitar course

I started to learn guitar during lockdown trying a number of different apps. Some of those apps were really helpful but when it came down to it nothing beats Fender Play for it’s easy to follow lessons.
I’ve progressed so much and really enjoying it. Still not past level 4 yet, so lots to learn still. Well worth trying out the different tracks too as there are different techniques. I started with Country playing acoustic but now switch between country, rock and pop. I’ve also added an electric guitar to my collection to try out even more stuff.
Not tried the Blues path yet, but I do go through the song collections to try playing my favourites.
I’ve not put my guitar down, I play everyday from as little as 10 minutes to a few hours.
Overall I’m very pleased with the app, it’s great value for money. I also love being able to download tones to my Fender GTX 100 amp.


Fantastic course for beginners ...

Have been a bit sceptical about buying on line courses in the past ... but for a ‘blind beginner’ this course is excellent ...!!!!

I used to drum in a band at collage (and strum a few chords on a guitar)... but the Bass has always interesting to me .
This course ( so far) has put real structures to my ‘self taught’ Radom playing ....and as a bonus it teaches you to read music (tablature) so gives you a really good grounding to help you move forward ..

The one (constructive ) criticism I have, is of the teaching staff ‘make up’/ profile and music style content.....

I signed up for funk / Bass course

Fender bass staff are ALL white /probably middle class / probably of “Rock music” orientation and probably 50% women ....!!!

And the choice of music they play on the course is much more of a mid American rock bias - certainly NOT classic funk as advertising suggests....
my point is; based on the demographic of the style of music that is played, ( in the world of professional funk bass players) Fender staff is in no way representing the genre properly imo.
I must stress :
This is a minor detail at beginners level !!
But I think it would be difficult for Fender to be LESS representative of the ‘bass player demographic’ if they tried ...!
In terms of both staff AND music content ...

But all that said , this app is an essential tool for beginner online learning ....!
Well done Fender !!!

First time ukulele and electric guitar

Fender play app; bringing out the best of lockdown. The collision of my fortieth birthday and covid kind of put a dampener on things. But with this app I’ve learnt how to play the ukulele and the electric guitar. In a couple of months I got comfy playing the ukulele, nailing happy birthday and bad moon rising. So I splashed out and bought an Epiphone Les Paul 1950’s and a fender mustang GTX 100amp. I have to complement fender on how well they’ve enhanced learning how to use the modelling amp and play different tunes. For the guitar songs they’ve broken them down really nicely. I’d recommend all apologies by Nirvana. Great work Fender! What I’d like enhancing in the app. Larger numbers on the cords for the iPhone. Direction arrows for the strumming. Fender introduce this app to keep people interested after buying a guitar and it’s nothing less then motivating and helpful.
