Not really worth it on an iPhone

I imagine this magazine would be okay on an iPad. But on an iPhone the screen is really just too small to sit here and read a magazine. The included tabs in particular would have been great in the paper magazine or maybe on an iPad, but they're useless to me on my iPhone and I have no way to print them. The rest of the content is something between a fan magazine and a player's magazine but I guess that's to be expected. At least the copy I chose to buy had an article about Mastadon in it. But typical of the way this magazine sort of touches on subjects and then quickly moves on, it showed photos of their guitar rigs but didn't explain the much. I might pick up a paper copy of this magazine sometime, especially since it comes with a CD, but I don't think I'll bother with the iPhone version ever again.

Great App and good company

This app has vastly improved and is very helpful in keeping on track while practicing. Plenty of challenging material and good examples to play along with.

I have ordered several times and there have beeN minor issues, but they usually resolve the problem in my favor.

Keep it up, my one request would be to make the practice tracks a little longer ....

A Wealth of Guitar Geekness

Guitar inspiration for all levels. Not only do you get excellent lessons with audio but toss in great artist interviews from not only established artist but also some artist below the mainstream audience. This is one of the places I learn of some amazing artists. Then add gear reviews that give you all info you need, all in a handy well presented format. Worth every penny!
