Bad tuner
by pat@reviews344 on 2020/02/02 22:04
So I do not like this because of the tuner my guitar was sent to me tuned so the app worked the first time and said everything was ok but when I did it the 2nd time it said every note was off and the third time it said the same thing so do not get this app ever I hope the developer sees this.

Why does the app bot recognize my airpods as headphones
Worst app
by Theboss101213 on 2020/01/29 01:55
By far the worst app I’ve ever used to try to learn guitar. The app doesn’t pick up your guitar even when you have headphones on. Looking through the song list is a pain, you can’t look songs up, or search for them. I never meant to purchase the yearly membership for it, but when I went to cancel my free trial it wouldn’t let me. For now I’m stuck with this for a year. Apple would not return my money even when I explained what had happened. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP. Complete waste of time and money.
Love the app!
by coolguypie on 2020/01/26 20:08
Just wish you could save/search for songs instead of scrolling through the list
Lessons are BROKEN!!!
by Grak2001 on 2020/01/22 20:04
Loving the app, that was till I got to NOTES AND CHORD SHAPE, lesson 10. Here it’s does load and I can’t go on with the lessons. Paid for a year, what a rip. Texted the company, no response. Tried my subscription on an Android, same thing. It doesn’t go beyond Lesson 10. Giving you two stars, will change to five if you ever fix it.

Not a bad app, good for beginners! Although you really have to play a certain way for the app to correctly read the notes.
Not the best
by Brooke😜😂😊 on 2020/01/03 02:19
The app was free, so I was hoping to get free lessons and actually learn guitar. When I saw the premium had to be paid for, I thought "ok, I just won't do premium". I saw that the first lesson was free. When I finished the lesson, I was ready to move to the next, just to find out that ALL of the next lessons had to have premium. I was very unhappy about that. I didn't realize the premium membership got you the lessons. That's basically the same as paying for the app itself.
Great

Kinda buggy, but not a total scam
by Dan6899 on 2019/12/25 20:11
If you can forgive it recognizing nearly every note as late even with wired headphones being used, as well as some of the lessons just not loading, this app is pretty good for beginners, so I kinda want my money back
Does not load, paid for yearly
by BeMyRice on 2019/12/22 00:41
When I purchased the yearly subscription, the app started to slow down.... takes 10-15 minutes to load. Stuck at a blue screen with white bubbles every time I open it or try to select different genre of music.
glitchy

Crashes, doesn’t register notes without incredible lag
by Scott Hz on 2019/12/08 16:08
Tuned my guitar with the app (on iPad) just fine, but as I was playing the notes, no matter whether I plucked as soon as the note came on the screen or when it touched the line, it registered as “Late”. On the lesson on fretting, the app would freeze as soon as the first note was played. I skipped to a song and it registered the notes fine - I finally got to see “Perfect”, so I guess just the very fundamental tabs are ‘broken’, which is going to be discouraging for a beginner!
So far 3 stars

You might as well just get an actual teacher. This app is pretty much useless unless you want to spend money on a monthly subscription.
Revised Review 3
by Tameralj on 2019/11/30 16:20
This program like me has some issues but it is reasonably priced and fun. Expect a bit of frustration with sound recognition depending on the type of guitar you’re using etc. I use an Irig2 and haven’t had any problems lately with tone recognition. There have been some songs that won’t load 1. Libertines, 1. Paramour.. and a couple of songs that no matter how well you do it tells you that you missed all the notes while showing you got all the notes? 1. Bruce Springsteen, 1. Alan Parsons Project-Eye in the Sky, 1.Guano-Open your Eyes. Other than those thing’s it’s fun and great for quick practice or learning with the modules at the top. Looking forward to new songs and grateful for all the hard work. Thanks guys
Thank you
by polloloco9100 on 2019/11/29 22:39
For the song
Moves a little too quickly for beginners...
by Monie P. on 2019/11/28 19:07
Definitely think that the experience could do better to catering to absolute beginners. Not enough emphasis on learning and testing chord shapes before diving right into anchoring/chord tests.
So much help

I’ve been playing for about an hour I and I don’t like it
by gucciw/chanel on 2019/11/10 02:08
It doesn’t really teach you anything or improve your skills in any way I was practicing a song and stopped but it kept giving me the points and saying it was correct though there was nothing playing not even a sound in the room. That’s why I think it’s just fake and definitely a waste of time and energy.
Trying to like this app...
by TK42DAN on 2019/11/08 09:05
...but I just can’t get it to recognize my guitars. I’m using the MeloAudio TS1 which is not on the “supported” list, but a compliant usb interface is a compliant usb interface. :) Few if any apps list the MeloAudio, as it’s not as popular as iRig, etc. but it works with everything else so far. I am wondering if the problem lies in not being able to select my input. The guitar input on the MeloAudio is Input 2 by default and I wonder if the app only assumes Input 1 to be used. I haven’t found any setting for input selection yet. I’ll keep trying for a bit and update if I figure it out.
Very easy to learn for beginners
by Catiecat156 on 2019/11/06 17:58
I’m a hardcore beginner and I know nothing about playing guitar. But this app really helped me and made it easier for me to play. Definitely recommend for beginners.
Do not get
by RileyPhillips08 on 2019/11/02 19:20
So it made me tune it and it told me to tighten my string and it made me tighten it so much it broke in half so I do not recommend this app

Save your money this app is terrible doesn’t work more than half the time I paid for a year and it only works 10% of the time absolute trash how do you take people’s money for an app that doesn’t work consistently I’m using an iPhone 8 Plus so it’s not like I’m using crap need to fix this or I want a refund!!!!!!
Latency response
by theiksnjel on 2019/10/17 12:44
If the app picked up the note on time it would be great. I’ve tried opening and closing, turning my phone off and on but the app doesn’t sync well with real time playing; which is the point of this
late notes & no pickup
by rryan62 on 2019/10/15 16:50
there’s a delay in the notes being picked up in the app when i try to play along with a lesson. even if i hit the note intentionally early it still say it’s late. also it completely misses most of the notes i play
Great

by BearBustle on 2019/10/09 00:20
Would be better if you could slow down songs and break them up and practice certain parts of each song rather than the entire song at once. Also, doesn’t seem to recognize Bluetooth headphones
Eh...
by hatmahn on 2019/10/07 21:02
I enjoyed it. I wasn’t able to learn anything in The EXTREMELY short time there was. I can’t do anymore lessons because I don’t have the money. I would like to see an app that you do not need to pay to learn guitar for more than 5-10 minutes! It would be five stars if you could do as much as you wanted each day.

Can’t do anything and doesn’t work well
by A Disappointed Guitarist on 2019/08/28 22:25
I never review any app, but this one just irked me so much. There’s not many songs you can play with out paying for the premium version. It often didn’t pick up notes when you played them and picked up notes when you didn’t play them. The tuner isn’t very good. When I was on the tuner and tried to pick a low E, my phone started emitting a high pitched whining note which I originally thought was from my amp. It only stopped when I closed the app. Save your time and don’t download.
Premium
by EatingAcrobat97 on 2019/08/13 16:01
A few months ago I tested the app, and it said that I would get free access permanently. I never received premium and now it says that I need to pay for it! And the app is basically useless without it. This is outrageous, it's unfair!
Delay
by MegaFloyd2 on 2019/08/02 06:04
I don’t even know why I called this delay... because simply you play a note and the app does not register... so you can’t play along. Sadly. Please fix this🥺🙏🏼
Can’t do much for free
by jdich fridjfjf on 2019/07/29 17:28
You can’t really do anything without buying Premium. I wouldn’t recommend this app if you know the basics already because you have to pay to play basically any song.
Very good app for beginners
by rewtjdh on 2019/07/19 19:39
It is very very fun
Didn’t hear
by Sofiebug on 2019/07/13 18:51
The app could never hear the notes I was playing even though I was playing them loud enough for every other app to hear. I was having a whole bunch of glitches when I first downloaded the app. This app was not helpful at all unless you like to get frustrated because they don’t give you credit for playing the right strings.
Suggestion
by MikeyTrustedGun on 2019/07/13 02:34
Okay, so I’m an acoustic player and the app doesn’t register the notes I hit, because you guys have the whole song playing at the same time. There should be an option to turn down the sound of the song we’re following, so it can hear us. Thanks guys.

Keeps crashing
by Jefe42 on 2019/06/13 02:41
It keeps crashing on my iPad mini AND my iPhone X. I’ve reinstalled on both and same thing on tutorial, part 3 open strings. I’ve completed it like 9 times and it crashed either during or at the end where the question flashes and crashes. I won’t want to keep this past the trial if I can’t utilize it to learn how to play. I’ll go with something more expensive as long as it keeps me learning and playing.
I want to love this app
by Ebonix15 on 2019/06/12 15:54
But it won’t stop crashing after every lesson and then I have to go back and repeat them until it doesn’t crash upon finishing
So bad 😡
by Marky_Mark1235 on 2019/06/05 20:29
This app is so bad, it doesn’t give you any practice ahead of time and it says it will give you a beginner lesson but it costs money and not a lot is suitable for beginners. I would not waste your time on this app. Im sorry this was so short and thank you for your time.
Wont stop crashing
by Balor27 on 2019/06/05 15:03
This is crazy, I can’t complete even the tutorial after saying beginner or I know some chords without this crashing. I’m in a iPhone 6, current update, and once I finish any portion with a play along, it shuts down, not even taking that I finished the lesson. On top of that I can’t use my standard iPhone headphones because it has a mic, and then I get nothing but interference. So I can’t learn how to play guitar, I’m so glad I didn’t pay for the service yet, and unless I can hear something on how to fix it, I might as well just uninstall. I wasted a mornings worth of practice, and I could have just done my chord progressions and been done with it. I wanted to like this app, and I’ve tried another one like it but I only just got back into it, and couldn’t set that one back to the beginning. So I was excited, but with the app crashing, and me following a reset of my phone, and deleting the app and reinstalling, only for it to continue doing the same thing I am frustrated. I’ll amend my review, but guitar tabs doesn’t have a support area for this app, so I am hoping developers will see this and help, or I will just delete the app.
Robotic
by 101rcd627 on 2019/06/05 05:12
Teaches you to play robotic, not melodic.
Great start and plenty of room for growth (for both players and MelodiQ)
by DavidSDSU on 2019/06/02 16:20
I was excited to see this released after seeing the initial beta a few months back. Pro: it’s easy for beginners and experienced players, easy to use, especially with headphones. I loved the intro tutorials - I hope they do more! Cons: it doesn’t catch missed notes in a chord. Does not show notation in addition to tabs. Also search field was missing in iPad variant. Cons shouldn’t detract from your general experience. Note about price: yes this is higher priced and some will complain, not me. There is a lot of value packed into this app that goes far beyond the subscription fee - namely an on demand tutor who lives in your pocket–accessible anytime & anywhere. Just spend the $$, it’s less than a latte a month. ;) Feature requests: - add uke tab switch - add user setting to default speed when practicing - show bpm in addition to percent when practicing - fat finger syndrome - on smaller devices it can be difficult to set practice tempos. One solution would adjust the tempo in 5% intervals or offer buttons for 50, 75 & 100. - add more training tutorials and attach those to a set of core editors’ choice playlist “get educated - rhythm”, “get educated - melody” & “get educated - put it together yo!” DavidG - typos by iPhone
This ap doesn’t allow you full access
by jexity17 on 2019/05/25 19:24
It’s super frustrating thinking this was going to be a great app. The ideas good but you don’t get to use to full thing even if you pay for it. It’s a bad app.
Deleted after 10 min
by Bill4542 on 2019/05/25 11:39
No search function. Catalog is mostly riffs. Looks like a beta app that was abandoned. I want my 10$ back.
Interesting but very poor audio recognition
by That Guy Who Rarely Reviews on 2019/05/24 22:59
Only tried a couple of the free songs, but the app's recognition of the notes being played was very hit and miss.
Lame

Can only try 1 song that was way hard to play
by OMGWTF144 on 2019/05/12 12:31
You have to sign up for a trial in order to try anything other than the Song of the Day. At least give us a choice of songs for different levels. It was frustrating and disappointing.
Rip off
by Turtle_Lane on 2019/05/07 02:46

Didn’t really work for me
by BaconCowboy3 on 2019/04/30 19:05
I have Ultimate Guitar app, I love that app it has all kinds of songs! But with this app you have to have a membership to play anything. Yes they have a daily free song but I’d rather be able to play any song I want without paying for a membership. Might pay later on if I keep using the app but not really worth it right now
Issues
by Sousetsukon on 2019/04/27 01:52
90% of the editors picks don’t work at all. The app needs work. Not worth paying for.
Does support playing along
by cincychris83 on 2019/04/24 01:35
When the sections comes to play along the video is constantly freezing. The app says works better with headphone but switches to phone speaker during the play along sections. Useless
Cool idea but doesn’t work well
by disc man 567 on 2019/04/23 20:26
Started off with the beginner test: worked alright except it wasn’t picking up hardly any notes I played on the two highest strings. Then I browsed for songs: most of the categories I clicked on, such as “Simple Chords” and “Riffs,” were completely blank. Unsure of how to search for songs. Then I picked a song from the Pop category, I’m Yours by Jason Mraz, and it was so incredibly laggy I couldn’t use it — it basically would pause every second or so.
Disappointed
by Mulchinator on 2019/04/22 00:11
It’s constantly on able to load video. Some of the tiles don’t even have any content. Seems like a work in progress that has a long ways to go.
Garbage
by Dunder Mifflan Paper on 2019/04/21 23:35
This is the worst piece of steaming garbage I have ever payed eyes upon. It is obviously incorrect when judging note correctness, and the in app purchases are relentless. This app is not worth buying. Just don’t. It looks really cool, but it doesn’t work. I ignored the bad reviews, said naw, it’ll be fine. Good lord how I was wrong. His was obviously created by people who are not musicians. I hate this with a passion. Awful. Just awful.

Worst guitar app EVER!

Never get this app. This is just a waste of money and a scam for them to tell you how are you play guitar incorrectly.
Can’t use it with Bluetooth headphones
by zigmcclure on 2019/04/16 11:55
This is very disappointing. It will not work with my Bluetooth headphones so I paid $30 for an application I cannot even use. Perhaps it would work in its own without my LifeProf case one, but I’m not doing that every time I want to use this. Sure I have the option of spending and additional $30 for lightning headphones. Not very user friendly. No Bluetooth support Note recognition is very poor, especially with a case on the phone (iPhone 7) Constantly crashes on my iPad which is iOS 9.3.5 It is essentially unusable right now.

This program like me has some issues but it is reasonably priced and fun. Expect a bit of frustration with sound recognition depending on the type of guitar you’re using etc. I use an Irig2 and haven’t had any problems lately with tone recognition. There have been some songs that won’t load 1. Libertines, 1. Paramour.. and a couple of songs that no matter how well you do it tells you that you missed all the notes while showing you got all the notes? 1. Bruce Springsteen, 1. Alan Parsons Project-Eye in the Sky, 1.Guano-Open your Eyes. Other than those thing’s it’s fun and great for quick practice or learning with the modules at the top. Looking forward to new songs and grateful for all the hard work. Thanks guys
Moves a little too quickly for beginners...
by Monie P. on 2019/11/28 19:07
Definitely think that the experience could do better to catering to absolute beginners. Not enough emphasis on learning and testing chord shapes before diving right into anchoring/chord tests.
Trying to like this app...
by TK42DAN on 2019/11/08 09:05
...but I just can’t get it to recognize my guitars. I’m using the MeloAudio TS1 which is not on the “supported” list, but a compliant usb interface is a compliant usb interface. :) Few if any apps list the MeloAudio, as it’s not as popular as iRig, etc. but it works with everything else so far. I am wondering if the problem lies in not being able to select my input. The guitar input on the MeloAudio is Input 2 by default and I wonder if the app only assumes Input 1 to be used. I haven’t found any setting for input selection yet. I’ll keep trying for a bit and update if I figure it out.
Can’t do anything and doesn’t work well
by A Disappointed Guitarist on 2019/08/28 22:25
I never review any app, but this one just irked me so much. There’s not many songs you can play with out paying for the premium version. It often didn’t pick up notes when you played them and picked up notes when you didn’t play them. The tuner isn’t very good. When I was on the tuner and tried to pick a low E, my phone started emitting a high pitched whining note which I originally thought was from my amp. It only stopped when I closed the app. Save your time and don’t download.
Not the best
by Brooke😜😂😊 on 2020/01/03 02:19
The app was free, so I was hoping to get free lessons and actually learn guitar. When I saw the premium had to be paid for, I thought "ok, I just won't do premium". I saw that the first lesson was free. When I finished the lesson, I was ready to move to the next, just to find out that ALL of the next lessons had to have premium. I was very unhappy about that. I didn't realize the premium membership got you the lessons. That's basically the same as paying for the app itself.
Worst app
by Theboss101213 on 2020/01/29 01:55
By far the worst app I’ve ever used to try to learn guitar. The app doesn’t pick up your guitar even when you have headphones on. Looking through the song list is a pain, you can’t look songs up, or search for them. I never meant to purchase the yearly membership for it, but when I went to cancel my free trial it wouldn’t let me. For now I’m stuck with this for a year. Apple would not return my money even when I explained what had happened. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP. Complete waste of time and money.
Keeps crashing
by Jefe42 on 2019/06/13 02:41
It keeps crashing on my iPad mini AND my iPhone X. I’ve reinstalled on both and same thing on tutorial, part 3 open strings. I’ve completed it like 9 times and it crashed either during or at the end where the question flashes and crashes. I won’t want to keep this past the trial if I can’t utilize it to learn how to play. I’ll go with something more expensive as long as it keeps me learning and playing.
I’m in awe
by Claire_H_thechoirkid on 2019/11/22 03:49
I got my guitar two years ago and didn’t know what to do with it. I’d always wanted to play an instrument, but didn’t know how. My brother found this app and showed it to me, the next day I got our my guitar and finally learned what to do!! This is amazing!!
Eh...
by hatmahn on 2019/10/07 21:02
I enjoyed it. I wasn’t able to learn anything in The EXTREMELY short time there was. I can’t do anymore lessons because I don’t have the money. I would like to see an app that you do not need to pay to learn guitar for more than 5-10 minutes! It would be five stars if you could do as much as you wanted each day.
I’ve been playing for about an hour I and I don’t like it
by gucciw/chanel on 2019/11/10 02:08
It doesn’t really teach you anything or improve your skills in any way I was practicing a song and stopped but it kept giving me the points and saying it was correct though there was nothing playing not even a sound in the room. That’s why I think it’s just fake and definitely a waste of time and energy.
Suggestion
by MikeyTrustedGun on 2019/07/13 02:34
Okay, so I’m an acoustic player and the app doesn’t register the notes I hit, because you guys have the whole song playing at the same time. There should be an option to turn down the sound of the song we’re following, so it can hear us. Thanks guys.
Review
by BearBustle on 2019/10/09 00:20
Would be better if you could slow down songs and break them up and practice certain parts of each song rather than the entire song at once. Also, doesn’t seem to recognize Bluetooth headphones
Love the app!
by coolguypie on 2020/01/26 20:08
Just wish you could save/search for songs instead of scrolling through the list
It’s really useful
by 79juan on 2019/11/17 22:48
I just the beginner mode so far, and I was amazing experience so far and I was totally free. I didn’t buy the premium version until I be very sure this app will help me and IT WORKED!!!
Thank you
by rjrhth on 2020/01/12 03:21
Thank you I just wish you didn’t do premium 😫😫 because if we’re trying to learn notes we can’t😐
Didn’t hear
by Sofiebug on 2019/07/13 18:51
The app could never hear the notes I was playing even though I was playing them loud enough for every other app to hear. I was having a whole bunch of glitches when I first downloaded the app. This app was not helpful at all unless you like to get frustrated because they don’t give you credit for playing the right strings.
Crash Error
by Thejoker8947 on 2019/10/26 12:20
Every time I try using this app on my iPhone SE, it crashes after about 15 seconds. It interacts and everything, but just closes out for some reason.
Very easy to learn for beginners
by Catiecat156 on 2019/11/06 17:58
I’m a hardcore beginner and I know nothing about playing guitar. But this app really helped me and made it easier for me to play. Definitely recommend for beginners.
Good
by Dyihrhfidkhfhicfbhk on 2020/01/03 10:16
Not a bad app, good for beginners! Although you really have to play a certain way for the app to correctly read the notes.
Kinda buggy, but not a total scam
by Dan6899 on 2019/12/25 20:11
If you can forgive it recognizing nearly every note as late even with wired headphones being used, as well as some of the lessons just not loading, this app is pretty good for beginners, so I kinda want my money back
Does not load, paid for yearly
by BeMyRice on 2019/12/22 00:41
When I purchased the yearly subscription, the app started to slow down.... takes 10-15 minutes to load. Stuck at a blue screen with white bubbles every time I open it or try to select different genre of music.
So much help
by lavender_starz on 2019/11/25 23:50
Thank you MelodiQ, I’ve always wanted to be able to play the guitar and now hopefully I will be able too! 😁
Crash crash crash
by drt1025 on 2019/10/26 00:01
Save your money this app is terrible doesn’t work more than half the time I paid for a year and it only works 10% of the time absolute trash how do you take people’s money for an app that doesn’t work consistently I’m using an iPhone 8 Plus so it’s not like I’m using crap need to fix this or I want a refund!!!!!!
Latency response
by theiksnjel on 2019/10/17 12:44
If the app picked up the note on time it would be great. I’ve tried opening and closing, turning my phone off and on but the app doesn’t sync well with real time playing; which is the point of this
Inspiration
by ApexCycle on 2020/01/14 05:28
I’ve now found a new love for guitar and this app has helped me keep the mindset to dedicate myself to playing this instrument.
For beginning it's not that bad
by 74430123 on 2019/06/20 12:23
I actually enjoyed the time you have spent with me thank you
Great
by Murr254 on 2020/01/01 03:34
Wonderful app, I was able to play bad guy by Billie eilish within my first day of playing, just wish it other lessons were free😅
Thx
by DaniaPlay on 2019/11/16 03:28
Good app, for learning basics and it also teaches you how to play other songs! Recommend this!
Bad tuner
by pat@reviews344 on 2020/02/02 22:04
So I do not like this because of the tuner my guitar was sent to me tuned so the app worked the first time and said everything was ok but when I did it the 2nd time it said every note was off and the third time it said the same thing so do not get this app ever I hope the developer sees this.
Loving this app

I want to love this app
by Ebonix15 on 2019/06/12 15:54
But it won’t stop crashing after every lesson and then I have to go back and repeat them until it doesn’t crash upon finishing
Delay
by MegaFloyd2 on 2019/08/02 06:04
I don’t even know why I called this delay... because simply you play a note and the app does not register... so you can’t play along. Sadly. Please fix this🥺🙏🏼
Needs work
by isajelli on 2019/06/16 03:39
It keeps crashing. It will do it right in the middle of the song and then you have to start over.
Great

This is very helpful
by Lazy_Bunz on 2020/01/13 22:58
I was struggling but now i play like a champ
Premium
by EatingAcrobat97 on 2019/08/13 16:01
A few months ago I tested the app, and it said that I would get free access permanently. I never received premium and now it says that I need to pay for it! And the app is basically useless without it. This is outrageous, it's unfair!
Can’t do much for free
by jdich fridjfjf on 2019/07/29 17:28
You can’t really do anything without buying Premium. I wouldn’t recommend this app if you know the basics already because you have to pay to play basically any song.
It helps
by AmandaPanda123455 on 2019/11/20 13:29
I’m new n learning and it’s very clear

Loving the app, that was till I got to NOTES AND CHORD SHAPE, lesson 10. Here it’s does load and I can’t go on with the lessons. Paid for a year, what a rip. Texted the company, no response. Tried my subscription on an Android, same thing. It doesn’t go beyond Lesson 10. Giving you two stars, will change to five if you ever fix it.

Crashes, doesn’t register notes without incredible lag
by Scott Hz on 2019/12/08 16:08
Tuned my guitar with the app (on iPad) just fine, but as I was playing the notes, no matter whether I plucked as soon as the note came on the screen or when it touched the line, it registered as “Late”. On the lesson on fretting, the app would freeze as soon as the first note was played. I skipped to a song and it registered the notes fine - I finally got to see “Perfect”, so I guess just the very fundamental tabs are ‘broken’, which is going to be discouraging for a beginner!
So far 3 stars

by TK42DAN on 2019/11/08 09:05
...but I just can’t get it to recognize my guitars. I’m using the MeloAudio TS1 which is not on the “supported” list, but a compliant usb interface is a compliant usb interface. :) Few if any apps list the MeloAudio, as it’s not as popular as iRig, etc. but it works with everything else so far. I am wondering if the problem lies in not being able to select my input. The guitar input on the MeloAudio is Input 2 by default and I wonder if the app only assumes Input 1 to be used. I haven’t found any setting for input selection yet. I’ll keep trying for a bit and update if I figure it out.
Very easy to learn for beginners
by Catiecat156 on 2019/11/06 17:58
I’m a hardcore beginner and I know nothing about playing guitar. But this app really helped me and made it easier for me to play. Definitely recommend for beginners.
Do not get
by RileyPhillips08 on 2019/11/02 19:20
So it made me tune it and it told me to tighten my string and it made me tighten it so much it broke in half so I do not recommend this app
Great app fun app
by jhssi on 2019/10/30 01:36
Easy to learn would love to see more songs added for learning!!!
Really helpful
by Liam Whitehead on 2019/10/28 20:49
Great app helped me a lot and I’m much better at guitar now
Thank you.

Love the app so far.
Crash Error
by Thejoker8947 on 2019/10/26 12:20
Every time I try using this app on my iPhone SE, it crashes after about 15 seconds. It interacts and everything, but just closes out for some reason.
Crash crash crash
by drt1025 on 2019/10/26 00:01
Save your money this app is terrible doesn’t work more than half the time I paid for a year and it only works 10% of the time absolute trash how do you take people’s money for an app that doesn’t work consistently I’m using an iPhone 8 Plus so it’s not like I’m using crap need to fix this or I want a refund!!!!!!
Latency response
by theiksnjel on 2019/10/17 12:44
If the app picked up the note on time it would be great. I’ve tried opening and closing, turning my phone off and on but the app doesn’t sync well with real time playing; which is the point of this
late notes & no pickup
by rryan62 on 2019/10/15 16:50
there’s a delay in the notes being picked up in the app when i try to play along with a lesson. even if i hit the note intentionally early it still say it’s late. also it completely misses most of the notes i play
Great
by Boban.boza on 2019/10/12 17:58
Thanks !!!!
Review
by BearBustle on 2019/10/09 00:20
Would be better if you could slow down songs and break them up and practice certain parts of each song rather than the entire song at once. Also, doesn’t seem to recognize Bluetooth headphones
Eh...
by hatmahn on 2019/10/07 21:02
I enjoyed it. I wasn’t able to learn anything in The EXTREMELY short time there was. I can’t do anymore lessons because I don’t have the money. I would like to see an app that you do not need to pay to learn guitar for more than 5-10 minutes! It would be five stars if you could do as much as you wanted each day.

Can’t do anything and doesn’t work well
by A Disappointed Guitarist on 2019/08/28 22:25
I never review any app, but this one just irked me so much. There’s not many songs you can play with out paying for the premium version. It often didn’t pick up notes when you played them and picked up notes when you didn’t play them. The tuner isn’t very good. When I was on the tuner and tried to pick a low E, my phone started emitting a high pitched whining note which I originally thought was from my amp. It only stopped when I closed the app. Save your time and don’t download.
Premium
by EatingAcrobat97 on 2019/08/13 16:01
A few months ago I tested the app, and it said that I would get free access permanently. I never received premium and now it says that I need to pay for it! And the app is basically useless without it. This is outrageous, it's unfair!
Delay
by MegaFloyd2 on 2019/08/02 06:04
I don’t even know why I called this delay... because simply you play a note and the app does not register... so you can’t play along. Sadly. Please fix this🥺🙏🏼
Can’t do much for free
by jdich fridjfjf on 2019/07/29 17:28
You can’t really do anything without buying Premium. I wouldn’t recommend this app if you know the basics already because you have to pay to play basically any song.
Very good app for beginners
by rewtjdh on 2019/07/19 19:39
It is very very fun
Didn’t hear
by Sofiebug on 2019/07/13 18:51
The app could never hear the notes I was playing even though I was playing them loud enough for every other app to hear. I was having a whole bunch of glitches when I first downloaded the app. This app was not helpful at all unless you like to get frustrated because they don’t give you credit for playing the right strings.
Suggestion
by MikeyTrustedGun on 2019/07/13 02:34
Okay, so I’m an acoustic player and the app doesn’t register the notes I hit, because you guys have the whole song playing at the same time. There should be an option to turn down the sound of the song we’re following, so it can hear us. Thanks guys.
Not very good

It keeps crashing. It will do it right in the middle of the song and then you have to start over.
Keeps crashing
by Jefe42 on 2019/06/13 02:41
It keeps crashing on my iPad mini AND my iPhone X. I’ve reinstalled on both and same thing on tutorial, part 3 open strings. I’ve completed it like 9 times and it crashed either during or at the end where the question flashes and crashes. I won’t want to keep this past the trial if I can’t utilize it to learn how to play. I’ll go with something more expensive as long as it keeps me learning and playing.
I want to love this app
by Ebonix15 on 2019/06/12 15:54
But it won’t stop crashing after every lesson and then I have to go back and repeat them until it doesn’t crash upon finishing
So bad 😡
by Marky_Mark1235 on 2019/06/05 20:29
This app is so bad, it doesn’t give you any practice ahead of time and it says it will give you a beginner lesson but it costs money and not a lot is suitable for beginners. I would not waste your time on this app. Im sorry this was so short and thank you for your time.
Wont stop crashing
by Balor27 on 2019/06/05 15:03
This is crazy, I can’t complete even the tutorial after saying beginner or I know some chords without this crashing. I’m in a iPhone 6, current update, and once I finish any portion with a play along, it shuts down, not even taking that I finished the lesson. On top of that I can’t use my standard iPhone headphones because it has a mic, and then I get nothing but interference. So I can’t learn how to play guitar, I’m so glad I didn’t pay for the service yet, and unless I can hear something on how to fix it, I might as well just uninstall. I wasted a mornings worth of practice, and I could have just done my chord progressions and been done with it. I wanted to like this app, and I’ve tried another one like it but I only just got back into it, and couldn’t set that one back to the beginning. So I was excited, but with the app crashing, and me following a reset of my phone, and deleting the app and reinstalling, only for it to continue doing the same thing I am frustrated. I’ll amend my review, but guitar tabs doesn’t have a support area for this app, so I am hoping developers will see this and help, or I will just delete the app.
Robotic
by 101rcd627 on 2019/06/05 05:12
Teaches you to play robotic, not melodic.
Great start and plenty of room for growth (for both players and MelodiQ)
by DavidSDSU on 2019/06/02 16:20
I was excited to see this released after seeing the initial beta a few months back. Pro: it’s easy for beginners and experienced players, easy to use, especially with headphones. I loved the intro tutorials - I hope they do more! Cons: it doesn’t catch missed notes in a chord. Does not show notation in addition to tabs. Also search field was missing in iPad variant. Cons shouldn’t detract from your general experience. Note about price: yes this is higher priced and some will complain, not me. There is a lot of value packed into this app that goes far beyond the subscription fee - namely an on demand tutor who lives in your pocket–accessible anytime & anywhere. Just spend the $$, it’s less than a latte a month. ;) Feature requests: - add uke tab switch - add user setting to default speed when practicing - show bpm in addition to percent when practicing - fat finger syndrome - on smaller devices it can be difficult to set practice tempos. One solution would adjust the tempo in 5% intervals or offer buttons for 50, 75 & 100. - add more training tutorials and attach those to a set of core editors’ choice playlist “get educated - rhythm”, “get educated - melody” & “get educated - put it together yo!” DavidG - typos by iPhone
This ap doesn’t allow you full access
by jexity17 on 2019/05/25 19:24
It’s super frustrating thinking this was going to be a great app. The ideas good but you don’t get to use to full thing even if you pay for it. It’s a bad app.
Deleted after 10 min
by Bill4542 on 2019/05/25 11:39
No search function. Catalog is mostly riffs. Looks like a beta app that was abandoned. I want my 10$ back.
Interesting but very poor audio recognition
by That Guy Who Rarely Reviews on 2019/05/24 22:59
Only tried a couple of the free songs, but the app's recognition of the notes being played was very hit and miss.
Lame
by dolla12 on 2019/05/17 00:40
It wouldn’t let me do anything unless u bought the full set. Lame.
Note detection didn’t work with or without headphones
by Ross1331 on 2019/05/14 09:08
Great idea, more work needed to make it usable
Can only try 1 song that was way hard to play
by OMGWTF144 on 2019/05/12 12:31
You have to sign up for a trial in order to try anything other than the Song of the Day. At least give us a choice of songs for different levels. It was frustrating and disappointing.
Rip off
by Turtle_Lane on 2019/05/07 02:46
This app isn’t really free. It’s a free 7 day trial then you have to pay a subscription fee.
Didn’t really work for me
by BaconCowboy3 on 2019/04/30 19:05
I have Ultimate Guitar app, I love that app it has all kinds of songs! But with this app you have to have a membership to play anything. Yes they have a daily free song but I’d rather be able to play any song I want without paying for a membership. Might pay later on if I keep using the app but not really worth it right now
Issues
by Sousetsukon on 2019/04/27 01:52
90% of the editors picks don’t work at all. The app needs work. Not worth paying for.
Does support playing along
by cincychris83 on 2019/04/24 01:35
When the sections comes to play along the video is constantly freezing. The app says works better with headphone but switches to phone speaker during the play along sections. Useless
Cool idea but doesn’t work well
by disc man 567 on 2019/04/23 20:26
Started off with the beginner test: worked alright except it wasn’t picking up hardly any notes I played on the two highest strings. Then I browsed for songs: most of the categories I clicked on, such as “Simple Chords” and “Riffs,” were completely blank. Unsure of how to search for songs. Then I picked a song from the Pop category, I’m Yours by Jason Mraz, and it was so incredibly laggy I couldn’t use it — it basically would pause every second or so.
Disappointed
by Mulchinator on 2019/04/22 00:11
It’s constantly on able to load video. Some of the tiles don’t even have any content. Seems like a work in progress that has a long ways to go.
Garbage
by Dunder Mifflan Paper on 2019/04/21 23:35
This is the worst piece of steaming garbage I have ever payed eyes upon. It is obviously incorrect when judging note correctness, and the in app purchases are relentless. This app is not worth buying. Just don’t. It looks really cool, but it doesn’t work. I ignored the bad reviews, said naw, it’ll be fine. Good lord how I was wrong. His was obviously created by people who are not musicians. I hate this with a passion. Awful. Just awful.
Deleting
by djzksjxnmsmssnmdmdmx on 2019/04/21 02:20
This app is awful, I’m deleting this.
Worst guitar app EVER!
by Rjdrummer on 2019/04/18 18:28
Never get this app. This is just a waste of money and a scam for them to tell you how are you play guitar incorrectly.
Can’t use it with Bluetooth headphones
by zigmcclure on 2019/04/16 11:55
This is very disappointing. It will not work with my Bluetooth headphones so I paid $30 for an application I cannot even use. Perhaps it would work in its own without my LifeProf case one, but I’m not doing that every time I want to use this. Sure I have the option of spending and additional $30 for lightning headphones. Not very user friendly. No Bluetooth support Note recognition is very poor, especially with a case on the phone (iPhone 7) Constantly crashes on my iPad which is iOS 9.3.5 It is essentially unusable right now.
Crashes, doesn’t register notes without incredible lag
by Scott Hz on 2019/12/08 16:08
Tuned my guitar with the app (on iPad) just fine, but as I was playing the notes, no matter whether I plucked as soon as the note came on the screen or when it touched the line, it registered as “Late”. On the lesson on fretting, the app would freeze as soon as the first note was played. I skipped to a song and it registered the notes fine - I finally got to see “Perfect”, so I guess just the very fundamental tabs are ‘broken’, which is going to be discouraging for a beginner!
Revised Review 3
by Tameralj on 2019/11/30 16:20
This program like me has some issues but it is reasonably priced and fun. Expect a bit of frustration with sound recognition depending on the type of guitar you’re using etc. I use an Irig2 and haven’t had any problems lately with tone recognition. There have been some songs that won’t load 1. Libertines, 1. Paramour.. and a couple of songs that no matter how well you do it tells you that you missed all the notes while showing you got all the notes? 1. Bruce Springsteen, 1. Alan Parsons Project-Eye in the Sky, 1.Guano-Open your Eyes. Other than those thing’s it’s fun and great for quick practice or learning with the modules at the top. Looking forward to new songs and grateful for all the hard work. Thanks guys
Moves a little too quickly for beginners...
by Monie P. on 2019/11/28 19:07
Definitely think that the experience could do better to catering to absolute beginners. Not enough emphasis on learning and testing chord shapes before diving right into anchoring/chord tests.
Trying to like this app...
by TK42DAN on 2019/11/08 09:05
...but I just can’t get it to recognize my guitars. I’m using the MeloAudio TS1 which is not on the “supported” list, but a compliant usb interface is a compliant usb interface. :) Few if any apps list the MeloAudio, as it’s not as popular as iRig, etc. but it works with everything else so far. I am wondering if the problem lies in not being able to select my input. The guitar input on the MeloAudio is Input 2 by default and I wonder if the app only assumes Input 1 to be used. I haven’t found any setting for input selection yet. I’ll keep trying for a bit and update if I figure it out.

Not the best
by Brooke😜😂😊 on 2020/01/03 02:19
The app was free, so I was hoping to get free lessons and actually learn guitar. When I saw the premium had to be paid for, I thought "ok, I just won't do premium". I saw that the first lesson was free. When I finished the lesson, I was ready to move to the next, just to find out that ALL of the next lessons had to have premium. I was very unhappy about that. I didn't realize the premium membership got you the lessons. That's basically the same as paying for the app itself.
Worst app
by Theboss101213 on 2020/01/29 01:55
By far the worst app I’ve ever used to try to learn guitar. The app doesn’t pick up your guitar even when you have headphones on. Looking through the song list is a pain, you can’t look songs up, or search for them. I never meant to purchase the yearly membership for it, but when I went to cancel my free trial it wouldn’t let me. For now I’m stuck with this for a year. Apple would not return my money even when I explained what had happened. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP. Complete waste of time and money.

I got my guitar two years ago and didn’t know what to do with it. I’d always wanted to play an instrument, but didn’t know how. My brother found this app and showed it to me, the next day I got our my guitar and finally learned what to do!! This is amazing!!
Eh...

I’ve been playing for about an hour I and I don’t like it
by gucciw/chanel on 2019/11/10 02:08
It doesn’t really teach you anything or improve your skills in any way I was practicing a song and stopped but it kept giving me the points and saying it was correct though there was nothing playing not even a sound in the room. That’s why I think it’s just fake and definitely a waste of time and energy.
Suggestion
by MikeyTrustedGun on 2019/07/13 02:34

by BearBustle on 2019/10/09 00:20
Would be better if you could slow down songs and break them up and practice certain parts of each song rather than the entire song at once. Also, doesn’t seem to recognize Bluetooth headphones
Love the app!
by coolguypie on 2020/01/26 20:08
Just wish you could save/search for songs instead of scrolling through the list
It’s really useful
by 79juan on 2019/11/17 22:48
I just the beginner mode so far, and I was amazing experience so far and I was totally free. I didn’t buy the premium version until I be very sure this app will help me and IT WORKED!!!
Thank you
by rjrhth on 2020/01/12 03:21
Thank you I just wish you didn’t do premium 😫😫 because if we’re trying to learn notes we can’t😐

by Dyihrhfidkhfhicfbhk on 2020/01/03 10:16
Not a bad app, good for beginners! Although you really have to play a certain way for the app to correctly read the notes.
Kinda buggy, but not a total scam
by Dan6899 on 2019/12/25 20:11
If you can forgive it recognizing nearly every note as late even with wired headphones being used, as well as some of the lessons just not loading, this app is pretty good for beginners, so I kinda want my money back
Does not load, paid for yearly
by BeMyRice on 2019/12/22 00:41
When I purchased the yearly subscription, the app started to slow down.... takes 10-15 minutes to load. Stuck at a blue screen with white bubbles every time I open it or try to select different genre of music.
So much help

Good app, for learning basics and it also teaches you how to play other songs! Recommend this!
Bad tuner
by pat@reviews344 on 2020/02/02 22:04
So I do not like this because of the tuner my guitar was sent to me tuned so the app worked the first time and said everything was ok but when I did it the 2nd time it said every note was off and the third time it said the same thing so do not get this app ever I hope the developer sees this.
