Simply Guitar is all about you: your skills, your pace, and your comfort levels. No experience is needed—the app actually starts by asking if you even own a guitar—and after a few quick questions about your skill level and background, you’ll be on your way to learning with tracks like Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” Aretha Franklin’s “Chain of Fools,” and Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy.” To help you grow your skills, Simply Guitar uses live feedback: It will recognize what you’re playing and provide real-time tips on your strum patterns and D chords. Start with basics, follow the lessons, and work your way up to power chords—you'll be playing lead guitar in no time.

Amazing App but some key flaws

This is an incredible app, with an amazing team, and awesome lessons. It is so intuitive, fun, entertaining, and really helps you actually learn the guitar and start playing real songs without you even realizing it, because it makes learning just that enjoyable and seamless. The app is made very well, the lessons are very good and really give you all the advice and tips you need to start learning the guitar. There is also this amazing song library where you can play and choose between over 5000 songs to practice and learn while actually playing along with the real song. But there is a few major problems with the app that can make it very frustrating and upsetting sometimes. The problem is with how the app uses your microphone to listen to you play. Every time I try a lesson and try to play along or follow the instructions on the screen, it always says I Al playing the chords wrong even though I am playing them perfectly right. Then when I even play the chord wrong on purpose just so I can progress, it says that it was right. I literally can just play one random not not even strum the whole guitar and it says I was right. But when I actually try and play the chord right following all the directions perfectly, with my fingers all in the right place, and when I know I am playing it right, it says I am wrong. So I am forced to just randomly play notes and it says I am right just so I can progress and get passed a section or lesson.

Happy so far

I decided fairly quickly to give this app a go above others to aid me in finally learning to play guitar and I’m so happy I did.
I was immediately draw in: it is fun, helpful, challenging but no so much so that I want to give up. I’ve been playing for a few weeks now and just got to the D chord section.
I love that with almost every lesson you get a song or two to practice either a chord or strumming pattern or what have you. It has a feature where it listens to you play and offers correction and here lies the flaw: it often seems to be incorrect in its detection of whether you’re playing a chord correctly or not. This can be amazingly frustrating. But as you see I’m still giving this app 5 stars as this isn’t a deterrent for me. Other people have mentioned the cost and no it’s not cheap! I splurged on this app because I think it’ll be worth it. My gf has played guitar for years and years and she’s impressed with this app and the progress I’ve made. I even asked if she thinks I should add in person lessons at some point and she said the app seems adequate! I don’t know how many more lessons are left but I’m hoping to learn as much as I can and so far, the cost of the app is cheaper than real guitar lessons and I’m very happy and having fun as I go. Recommended.
