Don't pay attention to negative reviews!

First of all, thanks to the developers for putting this app together, not to mention for FREE!! I'd like to say that guitar playing, like any other artistic skill, is a result of the effort and passion that you put into learning it. I've read some of the negative reviews and comments and I'm certain that a majority of the people who have left them are looking for miracle app that will magically allow them to suddenly be able to play the latest boy band hit or Taylor Swift song and this app isn't going to do that for it's users. That being said, I've been wanting to find an app to help me structure my valuable practice time to help me carry my guitar playing skills to the next level and I believe I have found it in this app. To the developers: Thanks again and ignore all of the haters/posers!!

Dear Developers.. 😐

uhhh. thre is so much potential! but you literally can’t do nothing without paying a subscription. i just wanted to play and learn new songs. theres just no point to download this app unless you are gonna pay. but... know a lot of people dont hav a problem with a subscription.. but on the other hand, a lot of people (including myself) dont have the extra money to spend on something you really want to pursue and improve on.
also theres a lot of competition in music apps. which almost all of them also hav subscriptions, but most of the time theres always alot of things you are able to do with out spending any money. i think thats what this app is missing so...
Dear Developers,
3 stars cuz i wanted to spare yall. i have yet to find the ‘perfect’ music/ guitar app, but i seriously thing this could be it! all yall need is move verity, accessibility & advertising. make this app accessible for everyone, and you WILL make grate sales (with optional premium subscriptions) and you’re doing a great job!.. just dont stop here :)
also this is just my opinion, with REAL ADVICE. take it into consideration, and you’ll be G O L D!! i believe in you. hav a great day! beyy!

Hi there,
Thanks a lot for your constructive feedback. Your input is highly appreciated and I'll pass it on to the rest of the team.

We're constantly working on making more learning content available for free. To give you a little more context, there are currently over 20 people working on the development and maintenance of the app and we want to adequately appreciate their work. Also, all our content is created by certified guitar teachers and in collaboration with artists to provide authentic and high-quality music education. Providing this high level of quality requires a whole lot of resources which is why we cannot provide all of our content free of charge. We value your feedback and will take it into consideration!

Pretty good

I played saxophone for 10 years although I haven’t picked it up in the last 20. I can already read music. The problems I have with the app is that if I get frustrated and want to start over, it isn’t easy to back up. Plus it doesn’t really have a very good metronome or explain what eighth notes are or two four time is. It doesn’t really make clear to play two notes per beat of the metronome.
That being said, I do like the way it trained your muscle memory. Maybe you could include some simple songs like they did when I was learning socks. You know, twinkle twinkle little star, over on overture… I understand it’s not the same with the guitar, but there must be some simple song that even at the counter can pick his way through.
Then there is the improv at the end of each session. It would be nice if there were some suggested riffs to go with that.
Instead of playing along with the improv that Frettello offers, I work on other songs. Currently my go to is Steve MILLER’s the Joker. Trying to learn that bass line between each cord strum.
