The Loog Guitar app was designed with children in mind, and that’s why we structured it as a games in which little monsters help kids form chords, those chords unlock songs, and those songs unlock a whole new world of awesome :)
The Loog Guitar app not only includes a tuner, but it comes with a friendly little monster that teaches you how to use it.

Ratings and Reviews
Nicely designed but…
Nicely designed but there are no names for each section after you first open it and the lessons are too slow and complicated for a small child absolute beginner. They want to get straight in and play not learn all the names of the parts of the guitar etc. It worked nicely with me sat there playing along to the songs and showing him how to do it (I.e. teaching him myself) - but just letting him intuitively get along with the app on his own and learn wouldn’t work. - he is only 4 though - so maybe if he was 8 he would have the discipline to sit and watch each lesson before playing anything. Basically I feel there should be a very simple game for absolute beginners to feel like they have got somewhere and inspire them - so it feels like a fun game - rather than trying to teach them every technical detail from the outset.
Got a Loog guitar for daughter for her sixth birthday. I really wish I had investigated the app before buying the guitar. The guitar is nice and a great tool for someone with tiny hands to get started on a challenging instrument. I wish the folks at Loog had spent a tenth the amount of time they spent making the app cute thinking about how to teach guitar. There’s absolutely no structure or path to follow. How is anyone supposed to know what to do first or what order to tackle things? The songs and games are far too complex to get started on. But the lessons have no useful order. Like, lesson one is basics of the guitar parts, then there are literally three separate lessons on how to restring a guitar as if you’re going to be thinking about restringing a guitar right after you bought it or my 6 year old daughter would even do this herself. Then, it’s literally every chord in alphabetical order. Really? Why not teach a few chords from the same key then a song using those chords. Like, seriously. Teach C-Am-G, then go learn every Taylor Swift song. If I wasn’t already a guitar player, my daughter and I would both be completely lost.
But the monsters are cute, so there’s that.

We bought this guitar for our 6 year old and thought it would be a great way to learn guitar. Not so much and this app certainly doesn’t help. We obviously don’t know how to play guitar, we want to learn. The pictures of the chords are confusing. Do we play just one string with the pick or all three together to make the chord? They never say. Then on Twinkle Twinkle they want you to put your finger way up by the tuning picks. What? So then you select the game to learn a song. Play one note, if you pass, they teach you two notes like the game Simon. However when you get to the third note when you have to move your fingers it only gives you like 2 seconds or you fail and have to start over. Who learns that quickly? Isn’t the point to learn? It’s like a really bad video game and the app also keeps shutting down. Not impressed at all. The guitar is cute but if you can’t learn thru the app, it’s nothing more than a cute guitar and I could’ve bought one at Walmart for $20. I don’t recommend this product or the app to anyone. Thumbs down.
