Great way to learn guitar

Update: app goes into “updating songs“ mode multiple times per day. Usually in the middle of a song. Often it takes 3-5 minutes. Is really irritating. Getting the strong sense app is doing much more than “updating songs”. App only allows you to create 1 playlist. Rearranging songs in that 1 playlist is a haste the larger it gets.

App is good for a true beginner but you’ll want to migrate to other apps that offer more flexibility and options soon.

I love this app. There isn’t a better way to learn. I’ve been using if for about a month but it recently started acting buggy. Seems to hiccup a bit ( not when I’m receiving email or text). Also, stats for number of songs played doesn’t count properly. Closing and opening program doesn’t ‘reset’ it and only sometimes does turning the iPad off/on work. Lastly, noticed that the score for some songs show a chord that isn’t even in the song and docks you 200 points for not playing it. Please fix the bugs - then it is a 5 star app.

Beginner has learned a lot

Has selection for rhythm parameters with an excellent how-to for chord construction and strumming. New songs added that provide chord and strumming variations across the group of songs. Also songs have lyrics if you’re talented enough to play and sing (I am not, at least for right now).
So far I his app has provided me with a platform to learn, the play and practice songs using basic chords, adjusting tempo and backing up to replay a section as needed. I like that it can be done with just a touch or swipe of my finger on the screen.
From the library of songs available I’ve built my own playlist of songs for learning and practice. As new songs are posted it’s easy to add them or later delete from the playlist.
As someone who previously had not spent a lot of time with an acoustic guitar, I find this app useful and worth the money.
What I haven’t tried yet is setting up a progress sharing account (mic on you device set to On) so I could receive “a more tailored user experience, song recommendations and playing tips”. Wanted to get my basics first so may try it, now that I’m more comfortable with my playing ability.

Great app

Wonderful app! I’ve been using it for several years and it keeps me very busy always working on songs I actually really want to play! I’ve been playing for many years so just following along (I turn the volume on the app down all the way) and just play and learn new songs on my playlist (about 800 songs I have on my playlist) so I never get bored with what I’m playing. The chord boxes let you know what chords to play and the lyrics are included. You can slow songs down as you are learning them and increase the tempo as you become more comfortable! You are able, on some songs, to transpose to a different key, which I love for singing in a key in my range! It also has a tuner and lots of videos for beginners as well as strumming patterns with each song. I highly recommend this app for anyone, beginner to advanced players!
