Very convenient and adds up fast!

I can practice guitar with my very busy life with this app. The exercises add up if you make it a habit and do it everyday, your playing will blow your mind and you’ll find yourself able to play songs you used to only dream of. Do exactly what the practice session says and you won’t be disappointed. It’s very worth it, you could practice these for years and become a guitar monster!

Worth the price!

This app is perfect for any level guitar players. If you are a beginner this app is the perfect place to start if you want to improve and achieve a solid technique. And for he medium to advanced players this app is a great workout to keep your guitar chops in shape. The app is mainly divided in four sections which focus on the basic common 4 techniques (alternate picking, legato, sweep picking, tapping) that every modern rock guitarist should be aware of and that should strive to master in order to become a pro-efficient player.
Although some may think this is an app with just a bunch of exercises that anyone could be able to find in guitar pro. Let me tell you that every exercise is well designed to quickly improve your technique just add this to your daily routine and you will notice change in less than you might have expected.
