I love this app!

I’ve improved my bass playing more in the last 6 months with this app than I did the previous 15 years without. I’m going from a “dad band” plunker just playing what sounded good to me, to being a serious music student striving to play the right notes in the correct time. And I’m having loads of fun doing it because I can actually see my progress!
I wish I would have had this app when I was a teenager in the 80’s. Maybe I would have been on stage with Def Leppard. Ok, maybe not, but a man can dream, can’t he?
There hasn’t been a single song I wanted to play that wasn’t in their library, and even searched some pretty obscure songs.
Initially, I liked the idea of having to pay for a subscription because I thought it would make me want to use it often to get my money’s worth. Truthfully, I was hooked the first day and didn’t need much motivation after that. For what you get, I feel the subscription price is pretty fair. They seem to be doing a good job of working out any bugs that might pop up, which is rarely. I can’t find a bad thing to say about Ultimate Guitar. One of my neighbors is in Bon Jovi. I might have to hit him up for an audition. You never know.
Ok, sorry, I was in dreamland again for a minute there. One of my neighbors really is in Bon Jovi, but I’m pretty sure they’re not even remotely interested in asking Hugh Macdonald to step aside so I can have a crack at it. But hey, it’s my life!

About 20 years late.

In 1975 my Dad got a guitar for Christmas. I was 10 and I was under strict instructions not to touch it. But you know us little boys I touched it as often as I could and never got caught. I got my own when I was 16 and earned my own money. It wasn’t that my parents wouldn’t get me one. I was too embarrassed to ask for something I might not be able to pick up. I’d fooled around with my dads and had no idea what to do with it. I met a guy at my first job who was also learning to play as well and he told me about Tab’s. But as you know in 1980 the only place you could find tabs were in music books at the music store and you were lucky to find a song you liked to work on. And they were $15 to $25 a pop. It was insane. So I picked up what I could until I got married had a kid etc and so on until my divorce in 1997. I’d sold off all my guitars, music, chords and amps etc. over the years so I had to start from scratch. I’d bought my first computer in 1990 and got on the internet around 1992ish. Then I heard about harmony Central and WOW. I STILL HAVE TABS THAT I PRINTED OFF THAT SITE. Anyway when that site was shut down I was depressed but at the time I was in a working band playing every weekend. That and broke up around 2003 when I got my first iPhone this App was available and off we went. I LOVE YOUR APP AND I CANNOT OVER STATE THAT. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. IT HAS EVERYTHING A NEW GUITARIST COULD WANT.

I learned so quickly because of this app!

I must say this app has done wonders for me. I never played a guitar my life I’ve seen my man playing the guitar and I just admire the instrument and respect it so much because it is an instrument of infinite sound bc of all the different chords/ notes. This app has helped me learn how to play guitar and learn the notes of different types of G chords, the different ways to play a B minor, different ways to play any chord. It’s literally taught me how to play entire songs with ease. Of course practicing but bc of this app, I was able to learn an entire song within a week and yeah it comes with a lot of practice and repetition but this app is incredible. I don’t think I could’ve done it without this app. I wish I could afford to pay for the pro version so I can have the auto scroll and all the other amazing perks that come with it but this is an amazing app regardless and the free version is incredible. I love it and I recommend it to anybody who is Learning to play the guitar, who wants to learn how to play or even experts that want to learn new songs. My man and I use it all the time— he uses it to learn new songs as well as I do. I couldn’t be more grateful for this to happen the free trial the seven day trial that was when I learned how to play the guitar and entire song in that seven day period. 10 stars across the board
