The Gibson App - The only guitar app you need.

Gibson's original TV series about guitars, music, and culture. Watch, learn, and get inspired.

Follow a learning curriculum from the basics to advanced skills. You'll get step-by-step guidance, adding one finger and one skill at a time, so you always have the optimal conditions for your learning. Never too hard, and never too easy - just right for you. Learn at your own pace and track your progress. The interactive lessons turn each learning step into an immersive and motivating experience. It even listens to you play and gives you feedback in real-time.

You'll have a great time playing even if you're brand new at guitar. Each lesson has multiple genres, so choose the genre you like the most. All lessons are developed by expert teachers. All you need to get started is an acoustic or electric guitar and headphones. No cables are needed.

Learn to play or jam to songs from some of the greatest guitarists in history, including Eric Clapton, B.B. King, Santana, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, Billie Eilish, Dolly Parton, The Beatles, Foo Fighters, Thin Lizzy, and many more. Each song is adjusted to your skill level, so you always get the optimal challenge when learning the songs. And we’re always adding new songs.

The built-in tuner supports standard tuning and loads of alternative tuning options, including chromatic tuning. Choose between automatic string detection or manual. If you’re a beginner, there’s a “how to tune” video that will guide you.

Why this app is not famous?

First, some ”psychological factors”: first, I was skeptical about this because the app has a lot less reviews compared with other apps. For that reason my mind automatically thought that it would not be worth it to download it. Second, I downloaded anyway because I liked the rock and row vibe of the app. Other guitar learning apps have these childlike interface, which turns me off. Besides the psychological factors, I think it is the best guitar learning experience someone can get in an app. It is intuitive, immersive, they don't take your intelligence for granted making ridiculous basic lesson. I don't understand why it's not more popular, but I am happy that I found this. I am just not sure how much silence on the background I need to practice, or if the problem is my headphones (the wired one that cokes with the Iphone 8), but I am able to get good feedback only if I am in a completely silent place. Summarizing, thank you for this app and for bringing the experience of playing real things from lesson one.

The way you teach the G-Chord needs to change.

Why the H-E-Double hockey sticks do you teach the player to use their pinky on the G-chord? Do you know how near impossible that is to do without muting some strings? Why are you teaching such a hard way to play the G-chord when there is an easier way that doesn’t require the pinky finger?

I was really enjoying the app(better than the competition in some aspects) until I ran across this lesson...I got so frustrated trying to learn the way the app wanted me to, that I went back to Yousician to learn the G-chord there instead, only to find that there is an easier version of the G-chord that Amped does not teach you... After trying that version I went back into amped to complete the lesson but it was very confusing to be told to use my pinky...I really wish Amped would change this, and because there is no way to contact the developer on their website I decided to use this form instead.

I highly recommend this app to those of you that are not the developers reading this, and just because I think their way of teaching the G-chord is frustrating and dumb doesn’t mean I don’t recommend this app still, I really enjoy it, for the most part.

Developer Response ,

Hey there, and thanks for reaching out! The reason we teach the G chord this way is that it makes it so much easier when you start changing between different chords, for example if you change between C and G or between Em and G. Other benefits of playing the G chord this way is that you can play the G7 open chord and Gsus4 without moving the ring and middle finger. It just becomes so much easier. So you can regard it as an investment for your future you. However, there is nothing wrong with the alternative way that you have learnt it, but you will notice some increased difficulties when starting to change between the chords. If you have any questions or more feedback you can always send us an email on Thanks! Daniel

Absolutely the Best....but my Progress :(

Let me start by saying that out of every guitar teaching app I have tried, This one is the only one that I DONT get frustrated with. Even when it’s trying to teach me to use my fingers in a way that I’m not used to, I usually end up realizing later in the learning path that it really makes changing chords a much smoother experience than whatever “easy” way I was trying to force through.
The whole experience is of a quality that just isn’t matched by anyone else. They lead you through quick, achievable lessons that build skills, raise confidence and keep you motivated!
Before you know it, you’ve completed 2 of the learning paths, and you’re feeling like learning the guitar is no longer this overwhelming, foreign, and out-of-reach longing in your soul.

And then I lost my progress.
