SiCoul ,

Excellent App, good value and plenty to please any guitarist.

I’ve had a profile here for a long time but due to illness I unfortunately haven’t been able to play. I’m now on the up so recently picked up the the guitar again (much practice will be required as I feel like I’ve somehow lost the last 35 years and I’m starting from scratch again). These days there are so many aids, apps and websites available to a guitarist, whether you’re a beginner or accomplished musician. Ultimate Guitar is hands down the best I’ve used and even better than I remember from my first visits. There is so much here, guaranteed to satisfy the interest of everyone. It doesn’t matter about your age, ability or your preferred musical tastes. You will find plenty to keep you returning. The pro tabs in particular are excellent. If I did have one (tiny) complaint it’s the electronic sound used for the instruments on some of the backing tracks. Although that certainly wouldn’t ever stop me from using this brilliant resource. Cheers, Si.

Thank you for your feedback, it is very valuable to us!

really great!!

this is a wonderful app full of helpful courses and sooo much material

however, i've been using the free trial and i would SO spend the £40~ on the whole year of the premium version, but what's stopping me is that the app could use a bit of tweaking before i would fully invest in it - for example, it would be really useful if the courses were organised into who teaches them, and also there's an issue when skipping ahead when i'm doing lessons. i'll be watching lesson 15 in section 2 of a course, and when i skip ahead it would take me to lesson 16 in course 1, which is pretty inconvenient and annoying as i have to scroll through alllll the lessons in the section and try and remember which ones i've already done, as the system that tells you which videos you've watched is flawed and acts as though i haven't watched a lot of the ones i have.

aside from these small things, i think this app has a huge amount of potential and would be completely worth the money if these particular problems were fixed!!

All in one on the go guitar resource

If you’re learning the guitar, it’s all here. Not just tabs but an enormous knowledge base that you might not expect. Simple stuff like a tuner which saves searching the gig bag for yours or when you only have your phone on you. The way you can make the tabs ‘play’ means you get a feel for a song you may not know so well and the ability to turn parts on and off means you can just practice a single part or play along accompanied. This really helps to keep gentle pressure on you to not stop every time you hit a bum note and helps you to get good rhythm. If you’re a composer, I’m sure there are more powerful tools out there for you but if you want to learn to jam or learn a certain song, I can’t see a better way. I initially hesitated at the cost but this is in part to pay the original artists royalties which means unlike the old days, the tabs are more likely to be correct. In addition, all the extra features make it worth every penny.
