I love to app as well but need help too!
I have tried everything to learn the guitar but I just couldn’t get passed my E,Em and Am cords! When I heard about SimplyPiano and what it did for my friends I wished that I had one for my guitar. When I saw an ad for SimplyGuitar I downloaded it immediately. I was so happy that I could play for more than ten minutes a day and that it would actually listen to me. When I got to the E cord I was excited to finally get passed the E,Em and Am cords for the first time in years, but every time I played the E it would say I was wrong when I knew I was right because that was one of the few cords I could actually play! To be honest I was kinda frustrated with myself and thought it was something I was doing wrong or I was tone deaf. I decided to go back to my other app and play E. It said I did it perfectly. I love this app and I want to continue to use it but I can’t if I can’t get passed this lesson. Other than this detail I believe this app is amazing and is the best way of learning guitar that I have tried. You really have ability to change the game for so many more people than than the people that reach out to you. You guys are really amazing at what you do and I can’t wait for you to make more apps in the future.

Hi there, thanks for letting us know! Happy to hear you are enjoying the app. Can you send us feedback via the app so we can take a look at what is going wrong with the E-Chord? Thanks a lot!
I totally recommend getting this app😁
I LOVE this app. I’m 11 year and have always been fascinated by the thought of learning how to play an instrument . I found many apps that taught you how to play guitar but they all either went too fast or started very slow. Since then, I’ve never been motivated to learn how to play the guitar up until I found this app. I love that it tells you when you’ve made a mistake and makes you do it over again. Although it may not pick up on some parts, it’s mostly really useful. I also like that it occasionally has some humor😂. I’ve practiced and practiced everyday. However, I finished all the lessons and am now waiting for an update😅. I do hope to get one soon. Though, in the meantime, I’ll just go over the previous lessons until I perfect all of them.

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience, happy you are enjoying the app! We are releasing more lessons soon!
It’s $15 and doesn’t recognize when you are playing
If this happens you will need to you, what fixed ours was deleting and adding it back. Then we had to start the process over of tuning but thankfully it wasn’t that much off. Not sure what caused the glitch but that is what we did. There are a few things I’d like to see improved. One being that you can go back to what you were learning. It doesn’t seem to want to all the time. I have to make sure all my background apps are closed before we start a lesson as well. Which that’s fine but the not being able to practice a lesson over again with ease is not awesome.
Old post: So we thought this would be cool. Read some reviews and the first day it worked really well. My son went back to redo the stuff he learned and it was glitchy. I’ve shut down other tabs, made sure it was the only one open, turned off all background sounds, shutdown the phone a few times. Closed the program down, reopened, tried to go over other programs on it and still it will not pickup the sound. The guitar was tuned to the apps specifications. I’m a little miffed. This was supposed to be a nice way for him to learn. He is upset. One star for frustrations.
