GuitarKing supercharges your chops. Learn and practice both on your instrument and when you're on the go. Try the ultimate practice companion today - from memorizing fretboard notes to unlocking complete fretboard freedom.

Ever wonder how some people are just able to “magically” pick the right notes to make their playing sound interesting? They know music theory. Not just the odd chord or scale pattern - but how each note in every scale sounds and which ones to use over any chord. They can pick out any note instantly, and know how it sounds, even before they play it!

GuitarKing is your partner in achieving complete fretboard freedom. You can learn and practice notes, chords, intervals and scales. All the necessary elements that join together in making you the best player possible!

With GuitarKing, learning music theory is fun! A unique game-like experience makes sure you will never give up learning and practicing.
Learn on your real instrument in Play Mode, and continue in Study Mode while your instrument is not at hand. GuitarKing is the fun and fast route to complete fretboard freedom - enabling melodic soloing, jamming, picking up songs by ear and more.

Guitar and Bass is learned through practice. GuitarKing’s unique approach to practicing was developed to make the learning process faster and more fun. Multiple difficulty levels makes sure any player can be challenged, from beginner to master.

GuitarKing lets you learn fretboard notes, scales, chords and intervals. You can easily incorporate all these elements into your practice routine at the same time. This allows your mind to more easily "connect the dots" and deepen your understanding of what you are learning. All while letting you stay in control of what you learn.

In Play Mode, GuitarKing uses your device’s built in microphone or any compatible audio interface to listen as you play on your real instrument. All you need is your phone, GuitarKing and your instrument - no additional equipment is required.

Needs improvement

I like this app a lot— I downloaded it a while ago and forgot I had it. I just started using it today and have noticed a few things. I’ll start by saying that the app is really helpful in with drilling scales and mastering the fretboard. (If you’re a fender play user like me, that’s something you have to pay *more* for through fender tune, which is ridiculous.) My main issue is that during the games, the screen will fall asleep. That must be fixed, it makes it difficult to actually use the app for its intended purpose.
Another thing is the UI could use updating, the layout is okay but I constantly have to kill the app to get back to the very start. You should also do some tweaking with the lessons, for example: I planned to learn all the notes on the sixth string and then test out of them all, which I could no longer do once I took all the lessons. I found that to be rather counterintuitive.
This is still a good app despite that, and if you’re looking for more technical stuff (esp if you use fender play lol) then this is the way to go. Learning chords is nothing if you don’t know the notes that make them & scales are pretty much the key to playing your own music.
Hope you guys take the time to improve on this because I really like the concept. Thanks

No support no options

Worked great for one day. Then it no longer would hear notes from my guitar. Checked that volume for guitar on app was up at full volume and nothing. Turned down other two for headphone etc and still nothing. No way to fix it or adjust it, no support help, no contact info. Glad I didn’t pay for the monthly what a waste of time. Too bad started off good but crashed and burned. Stick with major apps.
