Incorrect tabs. Like way off.
by Kacheprod on 2019/07/22 03:39
Several tabs I looked up were way off and incorrect. Decapitated the negation was way off. Ultimate guitar app has the correct ones... smh
Missing some good songs.
by Winddragon777 on 2019/07/21 21:36
It works extremely well, even helps you tune your strings to the correct tone needed. A++ for user friendliness. BUT IT IS BEREFT OF GOOD RAMMSTEIN. I see a ton of representation for American and British metal, heavy metal, rock, even obscure stuff like Undertale, Anastasia, Freak Kitchen, and Alan Parson’s. But for RAMMSTEIN (one of the most famous EU bands?!?!) it only has the opening riffs... Mark me miffed. It’s get a full 5 stars, otherwise.
This app is very useful
by MyNameIsCadeWassabi on 2019/07/19 21:26
This app is very useful and all you have to know tabs which are actually really self explanatory to learn or you could look them up on YouTube or something but it has helped me learn a lot of guitar songs and I never even took guitar lessons

I hate subscriptions
by NinjaCat360 on 2019/07/05 22:44
Listen, I want to learn how to play bass without spending money, okay I don’t care if it $4.99 a month or $4000 a month, I already spent $600 just getting a bass and amp already. That’s why I kept refraining from getting the app because I knew it would be like, “here’s a sample, now give us money.”
If only....
by prusha tool on 2019/07/05 00:33
Just can’t do the monthly subscription. I get that development has costs. But for folks like me, unfortunate obstacles in life prevent the ability to justify the fee, since there are ways of learning the more extravagant pieces for free elsewhere. One star, simply because, I start one song.....just one....and you are hit with the “pay the fee if you want more”, after just a handful of bars. I guess that’s why I never got into strip clubs, kinda the same concept.
It’s aight
by wombo_1 on 2019/07/04 23:01
Not worth the subscription.
Can’t restore purchase
by Horge10 on 2019/07/04 14:49
This app went from a 5 star app I actually purchased to a 1 star rip off. Please fix this or refund my $$$
Subscription
by Austin johns on 2019/06/29 13:24
I’d much rather use your website on my phone because I can hear the song and I get more than 5 seconds of it without having to pay $5 a month this is a really dumb decision and you should just drop the subscription
Why even let you download for free if you can’t play any of the full songs?
by yourube hater on 2019/06/27 01:08
This is a prime example of predatory monetization. Don’t download this app.
Not impressed
by Terrible Guitar App! on 2019/06/18 20:27
I tried this app for a while. I ended up having to have 3 different accounts. I had the old version that never updated. I had to pay for it and see all the new developments happen, but couldn’t use it. I tried e mailing the company and no one would get back to me. Waste of money. I do not recommend.
Rip-off
by Shopper99932 on 2019/06/18 20:21
You guys are such liars! You said that it gives you “instant access” to all songs you want but that’s not even true. And you don’t even have the full songs of some of them. What a stupid rip-off and waste of money.
Pay
by cheyannelei on 2019/06/17 02:02
I didn’t know I had to pay to play when I don’t on the website 🤷🏽‍♀️ that’s fine 🙄😒
Ukulele?
by Broadway Babe 93 on 2019/06/16 22:24
By the look of the app reviews it all looks pretty good, but would you please add a ukulele function? It would be much appreciated.
Great app
by LIMITLESS707 on 2019/06/13 19:25
I love this app for learning songs that I love, and makes it easy to find the song I am looking for
Not Free
by Sestan When on 2019/06/11 19:17
So sick "Free" meaning to download and not to actually use! Subscription Apps should be forced to be under the pay section!
Money
by Lightsaberk1d on 2019/06/09 20:10
You know that instead of charging a subscription fee if you just ran ads and maybe charged 4.99 for the app things would go a lot better? Best tab system out there by far but come on
Still requires multiple payments
by MizMM on 2019/06/07 15:21
I have explain before to songster, I do not do monthly payments to any place. At most I would consider annual payments but I prefer a one time payment option for everything. If they want to make it ridiculously high then make it high but let me be done with this paying after one payment. Even some groups have lifetime memberships for a large fee. I would like a lifetime membership option to pay with one payment. I use a virtual credit card and it’s too hard to make the card work with these monthly payments that it wants. My virtual cards expire every 12 months and require me to create new ones, and they are better for one time purchases. This company has lost out on a payment (and income) from me by trying to force a monthly plan on me with no other option. I should be able to pay a large fee if they are that focused on getting large fees out of people. If someone pays a lifetime membership fee it’s up to Songsterr to budget the money in a way that gives them money every month. They don’t give me any options and I continue to wait for them to make it possible for me to use it. My guitar teacher bought it when it cost nearly nothing. It’s a shame I can’t use it with him.
needs more work
by Goalie85 on 2019/06/06 18:51
i used to use this app when i was a begginer and now i hear music by ear some tabs are wrong and tuning is wrong too. i am finding another app that is better
Great Tool For Learning
by ModernDayCliche on 2019/06/03 20:54
I’ve been using Songsterr for many years now and You May find songs not tabbed out perfect but it get you close and trying to figure out the part yourself only makes your ear better. I have nothing to complain about songsterr cause I remember when nothing was like this when I started learning songs !! Thank you songsterr for making songs easier to figure out 🤘🏻
Horrible
by XxShqdowxX on 2019/06/02 23:22
It has great features that would be better if they posted the whole tab of the song WITHOUT SUBSCRIBING TO THE PREMIUM WHICH MAKES USING THE APP USELESS.
Bad bad bad
by davi_abb on 2019/05/29 18:13
There is no free songs Dissapoinment
Songsterr
by TMM30 on 2019/05/23 12:49
I downloaded this to print drum tabs. I am very new to drumming so it was a bit over my head (at this time) but I do appreciate that this is a great app and reasonably priced if you print a lot of tab sheets. When I have had questions or concerns, my emails were answered promptly by Denis, who was very kind and helpful in guiding me through any issues. I will likely use the app again after I’ve improved. Note: I was not aware that auto-renewal may occur through the App Store, so be sure you pay attention.
Pay
by osudjfkfkg on 2019/05/21 19:29
Why pay2play?
I like it
by Inter calm on 2019/05/17 17:45
I wish the base with more realistic. Otherwise I like the format how are you can repeat it slow it down loop it. Thank you for your hard work
Not paying
by Poop hand on 2019/05/17 15:46
Y’all got a website I can use. For free. Everything song is the full version without having to stop a few secs in on the song. Just to subscribe to continue. Sooo the website is what I’m sticking with
Bad
by harpatar on 2019/05/15 22:14
The website is free and this I can’t write music it is bad
This app would be good but
by noobmmaster69 on 2019/05/13 12:17
You only get a demo in the app of the songs when you can get the whole song on the Songsterr website for free. Just use the WS or use ultimate guitar.
Great tool for teachers and players alike
by rob higg on 2019/05/06 20:47
Always glad to find transcriptions on here whether for my personal use or for my students.
Not always right
by Old4x4 on 2019/05/06 00:09
Since they use user submitted stuff that’s never checked, there are errors all over the place. Most songs are fine, though. I wish it was a one time fee instead of monthly. Be careful. (Eg. Jolene by Dolly Parton isn’t even close of bass). Just one very glaring example. Use this app cautiously.
Major flaw
by BB10023 on 2019/05/02 16:25
Every time I open the app to review the tabs for a particular song you have to type into the search bar the name of the song. No option to save a song as a “favorite” or even show a history of prior searches to quickly and easily go back to the same song.
No Plus on Computer
by Naked Robot on 2019/04/26 14:36
My problem is that I bought and pay for the Plus version on my phone, the Plus status does not work on my computer. Any way to works around this or way to use the Plus version on my computer?
Ur jerks
by Ledleedleedleedleedle on 2019/04/21 20:57
U expect us to pay for ur poorly written tabs and you keep spamming the app wit oh get the full version no i never will because its stupid a def cow could write a better tab than any of urs
Great app
by EvanSimons on 2019/04/17 01:13
Pro guitarist, teacher, and player. I can tab most things by ear. But the things I can’t hear, this app is great. It’s done by a computer from what I can tell, so all the notes are accurate. The only thing it can’t get is what fret the notes are being played on, since you can find the same note multiple places on the fingerboard.
Terrible
by Im_Eggcellent on 2019/04/15 16:55
On the website you can see the full tabs without paying. In the app they want you to pay $5. Don’t get this app.
Not worth it
by Suggarypizzfarts on 2019/04/09 02:56
Super helpful app for learning songs quickly. I’m not paying $5 every month for it. I will figure it out myself like I’ve done for the last 16 years
The app is amazing
by Pekka is boss817 on 2019/04/07 18:23
The app is amazing and it’s helped me learn many of my favorite songs. But I wish it had a feature were I could mute the part if playing but not the whole band
Too much
by Bad man dude on 2019/04/04 18:13
Would’ve given a lot better review cause the app is great but $5 a month is insane!! Back you watching YouTube videos.
Don’t get
by hdhshahhahdhd on 2019/03/28 22:14
I was hoping for the website version where you learn an entire song for free but nope, what I got was the first couple measures and then it stoped the song and said “this was a preview to learn the whole thing pay $5”
Fantastic but..
by whoreallycaresanyway on 2019/03/28 17:25
Has everything a musician could want but now wants 5 a month instead of a flat 5 bucks
Pay to play
by FreakyCat730 on 2019/03/28 04:40
Umm, yeah. Let’s me play for 2 seconds before making me pay :/
IT SUCKED
by sushi527 on 2019/03/26 17:15
I got about 10 seconds into the song and an add pops up and I can’t do anything else it wants me to play MONEY to go any further!😤😡
Always works
by MikeIce9 on 2019/03/15 01:10
Used this for a few years now.all I need and more.
Wack
by og.bryan97 on 2019/03/14 04:57
This app used to be free for every song and you only had to pay for extra features like slowing down the song or isolating tracks now you can only view 5 seconds of a song.
Functional
by Solid Guitar on 2019/03/09 15:45
It’s not without flaws It’s free shut up and play your guitar!
Add ads
by Some other bassist on 2019/03/06 23:40
It’s a great app if you are willing to pay the $5.00 a month to get the full tabs. I got it, realized when I tried to play Master of Puppets and it cut off super early in not the song. If you put ads in the site, and yes I know you have to pay copyright and royalties to the original creators, but even if you put an ad on the side, plus an ad before you get into the tab.
Absolute trash
by Phoenix421 on 2019/03/02 23:00
Why would I download an app to look at 10 sec of tab when even the website has the complete tab? Ultimate guitar tab is not the best but it is miles above this trash
Awesome
by Damaged81 on 2019/03/01 02:30
I absolutely love this app
Rip off!
by yngdmb14 on 2019/02/22 02:50
Bought this app two years ago. Now requires a monthly subscription for botched tabs??? No thanks!!!
This app is bad
by bow to my throne of decipt on 2019/02/11 23:18
You can only see chords if you aren’t subscribed to the app no lyrics or when to come in only chord names don’t get this app it’s a waste of time
Free version is crap. Apple version is expensive.
by DH is the greatest on 2019/02/11 15:50
This app should not even been listed as "free with in app purchases." Free gets you nothing but a glimpse; 4 or 5 seconds of a song. $60 a year is a ton of money for this app. Compare this to $5 dollars for the complete program on android. This difference shows they they are robbing us. I ended up getting a subscription of guitar tabs app for $15 a year until I can get an android.
Love it
by SB95Rider on 2019/02/06 00:48
The ability to slow it down and then gradually speed up when ready has really helped with thrash metal.
yes
by yesnomaybeso27 on 2019/02/04 23:49
yes
Paying for IOS subscription doesn’t give access to website
by xdxaxnxixexlx on 2019/02/04 14:54
I wish that this was the headline on the subscription pitch. This seems insane to me. In the FAQ section it explicitly says that you have to pay twice. Pretty gutsy for a service that relies on users to do all the work. I will change this to 5 star if this issue is taken care of. I will cancel my subscription by 3/2/2019 if it is not resolved by then.

Very good app
Lots of good features
by mjbanka on 2019/01/26 23:35
Accurate tabs, and great features to let you learn the song at your own pace, plus the tabs for the other instruments and melody are great. I use this app very often.
I'm impressed
by leopardhyena on 2019/01/24 15:25
This app really helps and almost every song I look up they have. I think the price is very fair also.
Awesome Service
by Lawski03 on 2019/01/23 22:02
Love how easy it is to learn from Songster.
Great app
by jmnc2571 on 2019/01/20 17:59
Great app. Easy to use and an awesome resource
For real? I mean honestly??
by d4lhtowngonhardaf on 2019/01/19 04:12
They make you pay $5/mo. to even look at one tab on this app. My options when I opened the app were literally pay monthly or restore previous payments plan. Those are literally your two options when you open a song. Just use the .com website for free..
The Subscription
by jdj521 on 2019/01/17 01:04
I use this app on my phone because it is easier to move around with and I can hear the music coming from the notes. That’s something you can’t do on computer. On computer you get all of the tabs on whatever song you wish to learn but you cant listen to the notes unless you subscribe to them. On phone you can hear the notes but it only gives you between 5 and 20 seconds of the song. Sometimes you don’t even get the notes. This rating is mainly for the Mobil app and how much of the tabs you get. It’s as if they are trying to get you to only use the computer website and play the song over it with you phone. Just use Guitar Tabs app. Incase you don’t know what it looks like, it a orange “O” with horns along with a black background. You don’t hear notes but you get the whole song without having to pay 5 bucks.
I do not know who made these tabs
by MiNdDrAiN on 2019/01/15 03:19
All of the tabs I have seen and played are off. Don’t try to learn songs from these.
Every song you want. Accurate
by blunote on 2019/01/12 15:26
Totally worth it. Buy it.
Cool but...
by FFface on 2019/01/08 23:04
Great app. It’s got some nice features that I like. Every time I turn to tabs though and I immediately see mistakes kinda irks me. And bc I don’t have the pc version I can’t go and correct them.
Scam
by r0ck3tb0y on 2019/01/02 02:23
I paid $4.99 to subscribe so I could print the tab I am working on. To print it says you need to subscribe and go to the desktop site. I went to the desktop site and the$4.99 I paid did nothing. Now they want another $9.90 to print a tab. Screw this app, back to Ultimate Guitar Tabs I go. Subscription cancelled. Enjoy my $5 and buy yourself something nice.
Thanks
by RigMover on 2019/01/02 01:30
I’m one of the many who complained about the shift to subscription after paying for this app before. Thanks for fixing it.
$5 per month?
by f0ckfac3 on 2019/01/01 16:29
So I’ve had this app since it was free up until now, bought the premium $5 back when it was a 1 time only. Now 5 per month? It’s 5 dollars per month ppl! Went from 10 to 0 really quick.
Banana bus
by songsterr is doodoo on 2018/12/31 23:04
This app needs a subscription and I’m poor. However, if you can afford WiFi and internet connection, you can go on the website and see the entire tab for free without paying, with less features. So in conclusion, frickle this app bro.
I liked the app on my android tablet, but can’t use this app!
by NickTheNancyBoy on 2018/12/27 03:18
The app on my tablet lets me look at tab and chord sheets, understandably not everything, but at least some things. I never had to pay to just use it in general. This version is crap compared to it. I can only see a few lines before it tells me that I have to purchase a paid membership in order to see anything. I have no need for an app that won’t let you do anything without paying. Why not just make it a paid app? At least then I know what I’m getting into.
Needs work
by ndjdjdhdhdh on 2018/12/22 12:41
The app needs work, it’s hard not to get frustrated sometimes and a monthly subscription fee is garbage it should be a 5$ app not 5$ a month
It’s useful
by Deer hunter with a pow on 2018/12/18 00:32
The tuner is bad, and I really wish I could suggest songs, but other than that, this is a useful app
Cost is dumb
by Pop a lock on 2018/12/14 13:56
Man I love this app. I have it in on my old LG that I bought for 4.99 but now I have iPhone and when I look up this app you got to pay that same price every month ? I’m sorry but that’s just really dumb & stupid. But the app is really good been using it for years. COULD AT LEAST LOWER THE PRICE
Awesome
by Tancheap on 2018/12/09 08:39
Tried my hardest to start learning by ear then I realized no one cares how you learn so long as you can play. This really helps!
Bass
by bass1962 on 2018/12/07 16:36
I wish it would have more bassist songs
Use it all the time
by lexikon on 2018/12/04 17:33
Great app for practice. Would be flawless if they improved the sound quality. Sounds good at 100% and 50% speeds but if played at any other, sounds underwater (terrible).
Best TABS app by far.
by PageistheGOAT on 2018/11/30 22:02
I’ve had other TABS apps, never paid for any of them though. My friend pays for this one and it’s AWESOME if you pay for the full version. I don’t pay for the full version because I’m broke and would rather spend money on equipment. My favorite part about this app is that is has almost every song and it is SUPER easy to read, unlike other apps. I had zero questions about how to read these TABS. Also, I love that this app tells you how to strum (up or down). It’s the best TABS app to get an accurate sound. Gotta love it.
2 stars
by muenzner on 2018/11/28 02:19
I’ve bought this app years ago, worked fine. now all of a sudden it’s wanting me to pay again? And monthly? What’s up with that
Great
by Old time picker on 2018/11/24 23:33
Awesome app for hobbyist Fun easy to read
Does not work
by deadstil66 on 2018/11/21 20:10
Hope you appreciate my money, thanks for an app that does not work, I can install it and it asks for money, classy! At lest you are not standing at an intersection panhandling for your money!, high tech way here
Great app
by J dog6 on 2018/11/19 08:23
The app is great but I had a problem where if I went from Spotify to Songsterr it would make me renew my subscription.
It’s good but
by ::::::::/::::::: on 2018/11/18 04:28
You have to subscribe to the app which for me I honestly don’t like, I’m a young musician and I don’t have any money to subscribe to this app every month. I would rather it to be normal and let us practice.
Disappointed
by C-Flo Studio Downey on 2018/11/16 14:52
I never use this app, I’ve been try to cancel forever they keep changing me, even after they send me a link to cancel subscription, which I did they still charge me. Please make it easy for people to cancel from The app itself. It’s ridiculous what you have to go through to cancel and still doesn’t work. The stress. Stop the charge. Please please please.
Need to pay $5 a month to see the tabs in the app
by YeeYee123 on 2018/11/14 16:13
It makes no sense that you have to buy a subscription to view tabs in the app, but you can go to the website and view and play them for free. The app should at the very least have all the functionality of the site. There's no reason to use this app besides bookmarked tabs to open in Safari later
Useless unless you pay
by idiotwithgunz on 2018/11/12 23:58
$5 a month for the same experience you get FREE on the website...
Why wouldn’t I just use the website instead
by Milk Nar on 2018/11/11 19:09
It’s a bit of a design flaw when you have your entire app require a subscription to work, yet I can just see full tabs on your website. Kinda brain dead. If it were similar to the website in the sense that one can view the entire tab but certain features are blocked without a subscription, then fine but this is honestly ridiculous

by POWBot2000😀😄 on 2018/10/27 19:18
I search and open a song. Cool. I cannot PLAY the flipping song because I need a flipping “Supscription.” WTH. Don't buy, get Ultimate Guitar Tabs it’s way better. Ok it’s not that great but at least better than this crap.
Buggy subscription wall
by jeff3dx on 2018/10/24 16:55
Songsterr iTunes subscriptions are not implemented correctly. You must re-enter your ITUNES password almost every time you open the app. As you may know iTunes passwords are low level and do not support password auto fill. Often Songsterr will fail subscription detection and block you from entering. Maybe someday the developer will fix all this.
buy it or just nothing
by Fer_Fenix_ on 2018/10/16 03:09
i prefer the web version, honestly on the web site i could play all the tab, and suggest me to download this app... just to open it and enjoy... previews or 4.99/month... give me a break on the net i can acces all tabs for free, just need ear and search; uninstalled and 1 star... all you developers want -all of you- its just our dirty dollars (...no way dude, own it!)

If you want to hear everything except your own instrument, switch instruments in the app to something else, then turn off the one that you actually play. This way you can improve your technique and develop an ensemble sound using all the other excellent features of this app. Thanks to Joshman0013 for raising this issue.
Ugh
by The man/angel on 2018/10/11 01:24
I use the website in my phone and I thought that if you used the app it would not have that stupid banner telling you to get the app that takes up half the screen. I actually had hope for this one. Not even a trial. Wow.
Where in the ...
by T. Browning on 2018/10/10 07:31
... hell have you been all of my life! First guitar lesson in 1976. I learned to play but had to rely heavily on ear. Now, just about every song i can think of is available here in guitar TAB, and it’s descent TAB! I’m finally able to clean up my chops a bit. If anyone has any desire to play, you can no longer blame it on not finding any guitar TAB. Thank you!!!
So far, so good.
by Basement Bassman on 2018/10/10 00:12
Edit update: This app is about as comprehensive and flexible a learning tool as you’ll find anywhere. The ability to slow it down in increments is extremely useful, and the song list seems to be growing constantly. Original review: I purchased this app with some skepticism after reading some not-so-flattering reviews, but within months, the reviews got better so I grabbed it. I used to go to a website called Bassmasta, but for some reason, I wasn't able to on my iPad. I'm new to bass guitar after a pretty bad injury forced me away from drums. This app is an excellent learning tool and I have yet to find any obviously incorrectly tabbed songs. It's pretty good. Well worth the $5 or whatever I spent on it. No retreat here!
Bug fixes
by chord junky on 2018/10/07 14:02
After using the app for years, the developer made an app mod that resulted in the app not showing chords or tabs unless one subscribed to the service. Once they were notified (by myself and I assume others), they fixed the problem within about 24 hours. This is a great app and the developers response was equally great.

by Bdogg82 on 2018/10/06 17:34
I’m not going to lie I was not happy when the latest update rendered the app unusable for old users who purchased the app before it was a subscription service. The developer once aware of the issue was proactive to fix the issue and it now works again as promised. I honestly feel with as much as I’ve paid in monthly subscription fees to use the web browser based version across all platforms that I should at least get to keep the app version that I bought long ago for a one time fee. The app itself is excellent and a vital teaching tool for me.
Already purchased and not working
by MaxPower@1982 on 2018/10/06 14:10
I bought this app about 7 years ago and use it often. I love the app but now it’s trying to charge me $4.99 a month for something I already bought. I’ve reinstalled the app several times and still the same thing. Tells me I can’t make in app purchases when I try to restore but when I get into settings, there isn’t an option anywhere to allow in app purchases. Not cool. One star till it’s working again.
Current update kills legacy subscription
by SuperDaveage on 2018/10/06 02:40
Beware! Do not update if you are a legacy lifetime subscription owner. This update will terminate your subscription. If you reinstall the app as it suggests you will also lose all tracks on your favorite list. Terrible.

Wish we had the option to mute the part we’re practicing
by Joshman0013 on 2018/09/23 21:43
Honestly for a company smart enough to develop an app like this, it somewhat astounds me that they developed the option to mute all other instruments except for the part you’re practicing, without developing the option to mute just yours. What’s in there is useless! How does that help develop your ear at all? The app currently functions somewhat like training wheels on a a bike. You can walk through complex pieces from at variable speeds, while it plays all the instruments for you. But eventually, you need to work on you’re ability to play it alone to maximize your tone; yet you have no way of removing just the instrument you’re playing. It would be great if we could keep the accompanying instruments, the tab, the speed control, but then mute the track it’s showing for the tab. As it stands I’m being forced to mute the phone entirely which is really stupid. I may cancel my subscription over this, because I feel like I’ve hit a plateau with songsterr and there’s better alternatives out there. Vote with your wallet!
It’s cool but
by brianrw43 on 2018/07/09 17:26
I like the side scroll but I wish I could also look at it like a normal piece of sheet music like on the website as well, the audio almost never works on the website, it’ll sometimes work once but then I’m forced to reload it if I wanna hear it again, and count in, solo, and loop don’t work at all on the website even though I pay a subscription. The app itself works great, never had issues but the guitar hero style is kinda hard if your trying to play a song for the first time, I like that more after I’ve played a couple times and I’m still working on rhythm and memorizing it. Also for solo mode, it’s cool but I wish you could also make it so you can hear all instruments except for the part I wanna play, that way I can have the drums, bass, vocals and maybe rhythm guitar going while I play lead guitar over it
The Subscription
by jdj521 on 2019/01/17 01:04
I use this app on my phone because it is easier to move around with and I can hear the music coming from the notes. That’s something you can’t do on computer. On computer you get all of the tabs on whatever song you wish to learn but you cant listen to the notes unless you subscribe to them. On phone you can hear the notes but it only gives you between 5 and 20 seconds of the song. Sometimes you don’t even get the notes. This rating is mainly for the Mobil app and how much of the tabs you get. It’s as if they are trying to get you to only use the computer website and play the song over it with you phone. Just use Guitar Tabs app. Incase you don’t know what it looks like, it a orange “O” with horns along with a black background. You don’t hear notes but you get the whole song without having to pay 5 bucks.
Still requires multiple payments
by MizMM on 2019/06/07 15:21
I have explain before to songster, I do not do monthly payments to any place. At most I would consider annual payments but I prefer a one time payment option for everything. If they want to make it ridiculously high then make it high but let me be done with this paying after one payment. Even some groups have lifetime memberships for a large fee. I would like a lifetime membership option to pay with one payment. I use a virtual credit card and it’s too hard to make the card work with these monthly payments that it wants. My virtual cards expire every 12 months and require me to create new ones, and they are better for one time purchases. This company has lost out on a payment (and income) from me by trying to force a monthly plan on me with no other option. I should be able to pay a large fee if they are that focused on getting large fees out of people. If someone pays a lifetime membership fee it’s up to Songsterr to budget the money in a way that gives them money every month. They don’t give me any options and I continue to wait for them to make it possible for me to use it. My guitar teacher bought it when it cost nearly nothing. It’s a shame I can’t use it with him.
Best TABS app by far.
by PageistheGOAT on 2018/11/30 22:02
I’ve had other TABS apps, never paid for any of them though. My friend pays for this one and it’s AWESOME if you pay for the full version. I don’t pay for the full version because I’m broke and would rather spend money on equipment. My favorite part about this app is that is has almost every song and it is SUPER easy to read, unlike other apps. I had zero questions about how to read these TABS. Also, I love that this app tells you how to strum (up or down). It’s the best TABS app to get an accurate sound. Gotta love it.
Songsterr
by TMM30 on 2019/05/23 12:49
I downloaded this to print drum tabs. I am very new to drumming so it was a bit over my head (at this time) but I do appreciate that this is a great app and reasonably priced if you print a lot of tab sheets. When I have had questions or concerns, my emails were answered promptly by Denis, who was very kind and helpful in guiding me through any issues. I will likely use the app again after I’ve improved. Note: I was not aware that auto-renewal may occur through the App Store, so be sure you pay attention.
Best Option for Tabs, Hands Down.
by John_Volt on 2017/09/20 09:25
I've been subscribing to Songsterr for years. They are the ONLY place I consistently find perfect transcriptions to any obscure song I can think of. For me this app is one of those examples of how our lives are better today than they were 10, 20 years ago. Update: I've been using other apps to slow music down but the slow to 15% speed feature is here and practice just got simpler. Nice job.
Great Tool For Learning
by ModernDayCliche on 2019/06/03 20:54
I’ve been using Songsterr for many years now and You May find songs not tabbed out perfect but it get you close and trying to figure out the part yourself only makes your ear better. I have nothing to complain about songsterr cause I remember when nothing was like this when I started learning songs !! Thank you songsterr for making songs easier to figure out 🤘🏻
Best App For Tabs Out There
by Ayyyyyy a lamao on 2018/07/06 06:10
I love all of the features that come with the monthly subscription. The feature that allows you to slow down the tab helps a lot but I do wish there was a little more percentages to choose from because on certain songs, the ten percentage gap feels like playing a simple riff to a full on solo. Best purchase I’ve made despite the minor complaint!
Worth it!
by Soul Sista 1005ab on 2017/11/27 23:40
I would give it 5 stars if there were bass tabs for all of the songs I look up but I doubt any app would have that. Most are on here however. Sometimes the tabs aren't completely accurate but close which still helps decipher the notes. It’s good to get an ear for the notes anyway. And it’s computerized and sounds like it so you’ll want to eventually play with the actual music once you’ve learned the song on here.
Major flaw
by BB10023 on 2019/05/02 16:25
Every time I open the app to review the tabs for a particular song you have to type into the search bar the name of the song. No option to save a song as a “favorite” or even show a history of prior searches to quickly and easily go back to the same song.
Buy the pc version
by OMGitsJohnny5 on 2018/08/03 11:44
This app is fantastic. I’ve cleaned up my playing on several songs and learned many new ones as well. I love the tempo and isolation features. I recommend subscribing on their website for the pc version and using that login for app access. If you subscribe through the app then you can only use it on iOS devices.

Unable to see more than one line at a time
by J Keith D on 2018/05/13 18:11
The app is awesome. I’m amazed at how much music is available. The playback remains very tinny and painful to listen to, however, and more importantly I hate that I am unable to see more than one line of the tab at a time. I know that I can play it forward very slowly if I want but when first learning a song it must be still. I am forced to transcribe everything into a book. This is far and away the biggest problem.

Great app, keeps getting better!
by Satch boogie on 2018/03/09 20:34
I use this app all the time. The database is being updated constantly and is chock full of great tunes. The MIDI playback has great tones and is easy to watch as the tabs scroll by. I like learning a tune and then using the drum tabs ( if available) on solo for timekeeping. Would recommend to a friend for sure :)
Why you should make just the tabs free.
by xxCrunchY on 2018/07/19 08:17
Hey. I've been using your programs online on my phone and I wanted to use the mobile version for an easier browsing experience. However, when I downloaded the app I have only a preview of the song and I have to pay for Pro for the rest of the tabs. Why can't you make just the tabs free and things like solo and countdown paid?
Worth it
by 80's metal music on 2018/08/09 03:45
The tabs sometimes aren’t perfectly accurate but they’re accurate enough to get you close. If you have a sense of rhythm and a decent ear you can figure out where it might fall short. Overall, it’s a good app and worth the money. I’ve been a subscriber now for about 2 years.
No Plus on Computer
by Naked Robot on 2019/04/26 14:36
My problem is that I bought and pay for the Plus version on my phone, the Plus status does not work on my computer. Any way to works around this or way to use the Plus version on my computer?

Buggy, fixes are promised for more than a month now
by Artem Gordinsky on 2017/12/03 05:25
The “mono” mode resets on every song, goes out of sync with the button state and has to be toggled back to work again. Song playback stops randomly and has to be started again many times per song. Customer Support has been promising fixes for more than a month now, which is kind of ridiculous.
Great app
by EvanSimons on 2019/04/17 01:13
Pro guitarist, teacher, and player. I can tab most things by ear. But the things I can’t hear, this app is great. It’s done by a computer from what I can tell, so all the notes are accurate. The only thing it can’t get is what fret the notes are being played on, since you can find the same note multiple places on the fingerboard.
So, so, good. but awful marketing
by Fdfggsgxtg on 2018/03/06 07:08
Don’t get me wrong– When it comes to the world of tabs it gets exactly 0 better than this. But with the requirement of a subscription instead of a one time purchase (like it is on every other platform) for premium, its useless. For anyone that isn't rolling in the dough it makes 10 times the sense to just learn to read sheet. And that’s exactly what I did. Some times I come back to this app and yern for what could have been.
Great App!
by 18nLife on 2018/06/29 22:18
This app has helped me a lot! Playing with people and having songs thrown at me for studio work. I can find the songs quick and get to work on them. The app has a good selection too! For the most part , tabs are accurate, Good enough to get the job done.👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
Best Money I've ever spent...!
by Corn10661 on 2018/05/17 12:51
I use Songsterr EVERY single day, from learning new guitar parts, to programming drum parts into my machine for awesome covers, this is just the ULTIMATE learning tool! Thank You Songsterr for helping me go from a mediocre player to an advanced player, playing solos I only used to dream about playing, priceless!
Won’t let me end my subscription
by fatbodyfever on 2018/09/13 18:25
I love the app definitely a great app but I’m over playing other people’s music and I’d like to download other apps on my phone but since I can’t end this subscription it won’t let me do anything please help me out I’ve tried doing the whole go to your id route still won’t let cancel it
Really Good - the best out there...
by PFC Joker on 2017/11/09 06:29
It is good app, well made and all that. Quick to start, update and most of all put songs in your repertoire. There are some features it could use - like being able to organize your favorites. These are minor annoyances though. Overall it is very worth the subscription.
Buggy subscription wall
by jeff3dx on 2018/10/24 16:55
Songsterr iTunes subscriptions are not implemented correctly. You must re-enter your ITUNES password almost every time you open the app. As you may know iTunes passwords are low level and do not support password auto fill. Often Songsterr will fail subscription detection and block you from entering. Maybe someday the developer will fix all this.
Have almost everything!
by Cattledecap1994 on 2018/07/04 20:02
When I search for tabs Im usually looking for alternative riffs, but I like to learn a lot of death metal and black metal and all sorts of metal. It’s rare that I don’t find what I’m looking for! Always close if not on point to what the songs are! I love it, that’s guys!

Phenomenal
by Hr paperstaks on 2018/09/18 03:26
A huge help for learning being able to slow down the play through of the tabs. Been playing 12 years and it’s speed up my learning of solos like crazy.
App Vs Website
by Clashonc on 2018/09/01 04:07
One of the things that makes no sense is that why would I pay money just to get a couple more features but I can just use the website to read tabs? I like this tab company but I’m not going to pay 5 dollars a month when I can pay 0 on the website and almost get the same experience.
Was a Great App... until
by Ibanez450 on 2018/10/05 00:45
I bought this app a few years ago when it was a one-time purchase for unlimited access. Now after using it for years, my lifetime purchase seems to be gone. Shady.
Awesome
by dghfyilzzzdty on 2018/06/16 15:27
This app cost five dollars a month but if you don’t want to pay you can still learn the beginning of your favorite songs but if you do want to pay the five dollars you can learn the entire song!
Lots of good features
by mjbanka on 2019/01/26 23:35
Accurate tabs, and great features to let you learn the song at your own pace, plus the tabs for the other instruments and melody are great. I use this app very often.
If only....
by prusha tool on 2019/07/05 00:33
Just can’t do the monthly subscription. I get that development has costs. But for folks like me, unfortunate obstacles in life prevent the ability to justify the fee, since there are ways of learning the more extravagant pieces for free elsewhere. One star, simply because, I start one song.....just one....and you are hit with the “pay the fee if you want more”, after just a handful of bars. I guess that’s why I never got into strip clubs, kinda the same concept.
Why wouldn’t I just use the website instead
by Milk Nar on 2018/11/11 19:09
It’s a bit of a design flaw when you have your entire app require a subscription to work, yet I can just see full tabs on your website. Kinda brain dead. If it were similar to the website in the sense that one can view the entire tab but certain features are blocked without a subscription, then fine but this is honestly ridiculous
I like it
by Inter calm on 2019/05/17 17:45
I wish the base with more realistic. Otherwise I like the format how are you can repeat it slow it down loop it. Thank you for your hard work
Add ads
by Some other bassist on 2019/03/06 23:40
It’s a great app if you are willing to pay the $5.00 a month to get the full tabs. I got it, realized when I tried to play Master of Puppets and it cut off super early in not the song. If you put ads in the site, and yes I know you have to pay copyright and royalties to the original creators, but even if you put an ad on the side, plus an ad before you get into the tab.
Cost is dumb
by Pop a lock on 2018/12/14 13:56
Man I love this app. I have it in on my old LG that I bought for 4.99 but now I have iPhone and when I look up this app you got to pay that same price every month ? I’m sorry but that’s just really dumb & stupid. But the app is really good been using it for years. COULD AT LEAST LOWER THE PRICE
Not always right
by Old4x4 on 2019/05/06 00:09
Since they use user submitted stuff that’s never checked, there are errors all over the place. Most songs are fine, though. I wish it was a one time fee instead of monthly. Be careful. (Eg. Jolene by Dolly Parton isn’t even close of bass). Just one very glaring example. Use this app cautiously.
Need to pay $5 a month to see the tabs in the app
by YeeYee123 on 2018/11/14 16:13
It makes no sense that you have to buy a subscription to view tabs in the app, but you can go to the website and view and play them for free. The app should at the very least have all the functionality of the site. There's no reason to use this app besides bookmarked tabs to open in Safari later
⚔️B E S T⚔️the App Store has to offer
by Craigerkilbey on 2018/03/26 23:37
If you found songster you need look no further you’re looking at the best there is to learn anything there is to learn in playing the guitar keep on rocking 10 🌟
Disappointed
by C-Flo Studio Downey on 2018/11/16 14:52
I never use this app, I’ve been try to cancel forever they keep changing me, even after they send me a link to cancel subscription, which I did they still charge me. Please make it easy for people to cancel from The app itself. It’s ridiculous what you have to go through to cancel and still doesn’t work. The stress. Stop the charge. Please please please.
Love it
by SB95Rider on 2019/02/06 00:48
The ability to slow it down and then gradually speed up when ready has really helped with thrash metal.
Bug

The best
by Jazzmatt5 on 2018/05/03 12:21
As a full time music teacher, Songsterr is the only tab app/service I recommend to my students. Well worth every penny of the subscription!
