Adult learner

As an adult learner I have found the fender app/website to be extremely useful. I can play it on any device i have and the video/audio quality is never subpar. That means i can take my guitar anywhere and play lessons from my phone, which is helpful when I have a bit of free time in between the events in my day. The instructors and instructions are clear and I like the fact they show a variety of camera angles when teaching chords and techniques. Best of all, I can revisit each video as many times as a need to, work at my own pace, and move ahead when i feel new information might be helpful to mastering previous techniques or to add variety. Overall, excellent job Fender. One MAJOR request that I have since I am coming from previous experiences playing piano and vocals, is that you provide lessons on how to transpose music from standard notation to tab and back again so I can use the music book i have collected over the years to play the songs I love. Thanks again Fender!

Great App for budding intermediate guitarist

Started playing guitar at the beginning of Covid. I haven’t put it down since. This is my second ‘self taught’ app I’ve used and I feel like this is progressing my skills and ability to the next level.

- Video instruction for virtually every type of lesson, song, etc.
This was huge for me and helped me grasp concepts and figure placements much quicker).

- Logical and robust course design with real world considerations.
Lessons aren’t limited to guitar technique. Courses range from music reading, knowing your guitar, theory, amp and tone, and so much more. Basically everything you need to become a competent guitarist (at least from my understanding as to what that is at this stage in the game...lol).

- Along w/ Video instruction there you can view preset tones for a given song or lesson, tabs, chord diagrams, and effect playback speed.


- Lots of content but not a good way to organize what’s relevant outside of the course structure. (For Developers/UX designers PLEASE SEE SUGGESTION below)


- Develop a way for a user to organize content relevant to him or her. Right now you can ‘Love’ a piece of content and it’s saved in your favorites in the order of when you ‘Loved’ a particular piece of content. This becomes next to useless the more items you have tracked (I.e. various lessons, songs, etc.) It would be BETTER if you could create folders or some type of personalized lesson plan.

It is the best!

I am so happy about this app but one thing about it is that it cost $50 a month after your 2 week trial but other that that it is the best way to learn your ukulele I definitely recommend it to you it has been my 3 week of learning the ukulele and I have been taking my time I usually practice every other day after school I am now learning to transition into different notes and the best part is you can ask questions to who ever is teaching you I am a little bit weird but I like to play my ukulele backwards and they said it is ok as long as I tone it backwards so I did and I am having no trouble with this app what so ever they also show videos on how to do everything step by step I definitely recommend this to you and if you get this app I really hope you love it as much as I do!
