I think it's wonderful app with great updates would like to be able to print out chords and lyrics. Great app, great price.
Old new guy
by oldnewguitarest on 2019/10/02 04:51
App is perfect to keep me interested in attempting to play music to annoy my wife. No fault of hers it kind of like hearing a child learn a clarinet.
Karaoki guitar
by DeniseEcho on 2019/09/27 23:19
It’s a great learning and practice app. I'm a returning guitar player after a very long hiatus and it’s fun just to play along with. I use it on the iPad with an acoustic guitar at home and with a JamStik and iPad and headphones while traveling, even on an airplane. App support has been great because I didn’t realize how simple it was and tried to over-complicate it. And they continue to add more songs—lots I’ve never heard and a lot of oldies for me! Plenty of selection!
Best value
by MikaUP on 2019/09/20 03:45
As a beginner learning to play guitar later in life, this App has helped me progress very rapidly to where I want to be. Without this App I would have stopped learning within months (when fingers became too painful) but following songs on the App even when using simple down strums only and recognizing the song you’re learning was a great incentive to keep ploughing on. Worth every penny!
Doesn’t work with jamstik!!!!
by Vidiot72 on 2019/09/11 14:17
I bought a jamstik+ for my kids to learn how to play the guitar because they get frustrated with me teaching them. The ENTIRE reason I bought the jamstik was to use this app! The demo worked perfectly but the second I paid the $37 for a yearly subscription it stopped working. To make matters worse apple refuses to refund my purchase. If you’re looking to use this with jamstik it is NOT supported.
So rewarding to jump in and play
by tupacvsworld on 2019/09/02 09:15
I learned violin growing up the hard way and this was the total opposite - just jump in and learn a few chords and already play some of my favorite songs. This is my favorite app to blow off steam and take a break from analytical work. I’ve been subscribing to it on and off for years now to just enjoy making music and relaxing a bit with my favorite songs. Thank you for making this app! PS Please bring back my favorite feature (now gone?) “similar songs” that really helped me discover songs I could play and enjoy and motivated me to learn more chords.
Learning to jam
by ffffgcjfghvdghh on 2019/08/09 01:14
I’ve learned a ton from this app!thank you!🎸
Great App
by Goget11 on 2019/06/13 16:43
UPDATE The developers fixed the issues a few months ago and I forgot to update my review. This is an amazing app. If you are learning to play the guitar this is a great song book for beginners. You will enjoy practicing and learning at the same time. Old review: This app deserves 5 stars but the latest update now causes it to crash constantly rendering it unusable. If it weren’t such a good app I would have given it one star. But I’m confident that Musopia will resolve this issue and I will change it to 5 stars.
Won’t Open

Hard to provide a positive review for an app that I’ve downloaded twice and still won’t open...

Excellent to teach cord changes
Great app but...
by Applesucks1! on 2019/05/14 21:24
Seems like a great app! It has lots of great songs to learn. If I could change one thing....it would be the ability to sort the songs in alphabetical order. Otherwise it would be a solid 5 stars from me.
Great way to learn simple versions of songs but ....
by Easilytaken on 2019/05/04 12:02
With the new update I lost full access to all but a few of the songs that I’ve previously had access to for years. I believe I probably paid at some point to access the songs that I am now unable to access because of the update. If I remember correctly, I was a VIP customer before the update. Update: The software developer responded immediately and brought me up to speed on my status. My subscription had lapsed, so losing access was a “bad” on my part for not renewing. It was just a coincidence that an application update occurred at about the same time that my subscription expired. I owe Musopia an apology and have correspondingly adjusted the star rating upward by two stars. The app is very good for learning strumming patterns, chords, chord changes, etc. I particularly like that the tempo of songs can be adjusted faster or slower as you are learning. Also, the catalog of songs available is very large. Some talented people have put a lot of work into developing this application. Well worth renewing my qsubscription. Thank you.
This is an awesome app
by Rick N P on 2019/05/03 16:08
For someone who has only been playing guitar for six months, this app, coupled with The Justin Guitar app, has taught me a huge amount. I can play about 15 or so cords and have learned about dozen strumming patterns. While it might not be an app for accomplished players (I don’t really know) this is precisely what a less accomplished player needs. It is super important to be able to have fun while learning and the Hal Leonard traditional method wasn’t for me an adult. This app makes it fun to learn and to practice. Just a great idea and so worth the money! This is a must get app for anyone serious about improving. I love it! I’m 56, and have a Martin D-28, a Art & Luther Cedar, a Fender PM-TE travel guitar and a Fender Tele. This app has given me the gift of being able to play respectfully within a few short months and I look forward to learning more from it. Can’t want enough good things about it.
Great app that encourages more play
by Mountaineer9871 on 2019/04/30 01:08
Love this as a beginner. It challenges me to work on new chords and on changing various combinations of chords within the different songs. Highly recommend.
Best app ever!!!
by bmw_riderz on 2019/04/01 16:25
I'm using it to learn both guitar and piano, basically you can turn off either one on the app to play along and it lists the chords you need to know for each song and the beats keep me moving along at the proper pace. Tons of modern popular songs which was always the turn off to prior archaic learning! I cant say enough good things about this app!
Beginner has learned a lot
by lefty63w on 2019/03/12 00:44
Has selection for rhythm parameters with an excellent how-to for chord construction and strumming. New songs added that provide chord and strumming variations across the group of songs. Also songs have lyrics if you’re talented enough to play and sing (I am not, at least for right now). So far I his app has provided me with a platform to learn, the play and practice songs using basic chords, adjusting tempo and backing up to replay a section as needed. I like that it can be done with just a touch or swipe of my finger on the screen. From the library of songs available I’ve built my own playlist of songs for learning and practice. As new songs are posted it’s easy to add them or later delete from the playlist. As someone who previously had not spent a lot of time with an acoustic guitar, I find this app useful and worth the money. What I haven’t tried yet is setting up a progress sharing account (mic on you device set to On) so I could receive “a more tailored user experience, song recommendations and playing tips”. Wanted to get my basics first so may try it, now that I’m more comfortable with my playing ability.
Not working
by wontletmepickmynickname on 2019/03/10 19:07
I attempted to contact app support to no avail. The app does not open and I am unable to use it. I have the subscription and I have been able to access the app for two months that I am aware of. Please correct this issue. Thank you!
Great learning App.
by Davizinho S. on 2019/03/07 02:22
Lots of songs. Basic chords. Great for the early to mid level guitarist.
Makes practicing and playing more fun
by Big Daddy 102 on 2019/02/20 21:57
As a beginner, this apps makes learning new songs fun. I highly recommend it for beginners and maybe intermediate players. It’s easier to learn the song with the beat and melody going with you. Worth the money to me
Strum patterns
by 🧶🧵 on 2019/02/14 22:29
I had previously used this application via android. The android app offers more strum patterns for the songs. Many of the songs I played on the android app had an involved strum pattern, as compared with the same songs on this apple app which gives no strum pattern to the same song I played with a strum pattern on android.
Love this app
by skknut1 on 2019/02/10 00:01
Makes playing and singing together fun for beginners. Just hook to a tv or projector and instant hours of fun for families, parties, youth groups etc who just want to have a good time sounding good together with songs they love.
Great way to learn strumming
by Activeold on 2019/01/23 13:16
I like to have more chords, like 7th chords, rather than more songs.
Awesome!
by madalynn whitney on 2019/01/15 00:36
Great for beginners.
Great
by livingnitemare99 on 2019/01/10 22:25
They could have a wider choice of songs but great.
Fun App but Glitchy
by Air Blackstone on 2018/12/31 00:34
You can look at the other reviews for what is likable about the app, so I won’t duplicate those praises. The biggest problem with this app is that it glitches on a regular basis. One of the most important thing as a beginner needs to work on is their timing. But this Apple often mess up on the downbeat advancing about a half a bar which will totally messed with your time. This is very frustrating and should easily be fixed by the developers. The other major shortcoming is trying to figure out strumming patterns that go with songs. You can easily start to think that you’re a better player than you really are because of the backing tracks. The interface is pretty sluggish changing from one Menya to another. Also the songs should remember what tempo you’ve been playing out. So for example knocking on heavens door is 74 BPM, but if you’re learning it at 59 BPM, the app won’t save what speed you’re trying to master. It resets to 74 ppm every time. Likewise there’s no tracking of your progress at any particular BPM. That would be a super simple feature to implement. There’s a microphone icon which I guess is supposed to allow you to record, but it doesn’t work.
More metal!!
by lovesanjosesharks🦈 on 2018/12/21 20:40
Ok I am a 10 year old girl who loves this app but I would like more metal (Metallica, megadeth,black sabbath Iron Maiden) that will be so good thx

4chords
by lefty slinger on 2018/11/12 00:55
I’ve been taking your beginner course and jumping ahead on 4 chords. All I can say is wow !!! Justin you are amazing, I’ve progressed more in the last three weeks than I have in two years without you lessons. Beginners start right here with Justin and his apps, I promise you will be playing songs before you know it and singing. Thank you!!!! Jeff
Makes me want to practice
by tired of nickname trys on 2018/11/11 23:23
I’m picking up the guitar later in life and being able to play along w songs I know and love is a great motivator. Support team is responsive (had a set up problem that they solved quickly) and app is easy to use. W over 2,000 songs to choose from, it’s been easy finding more than I have time to play.
Great app!! Too expensive!!
by Sullys curve on 2018/09/22 18:29
Super easy to use, consider dropping the price though, $120.00 a year is pretty steep.
Pretty cool
by App trees on 2018/09/16 10:09
Could use a little more accuracy on the chords but overall it’s an amazing app
Best Guitar App
by GRUMPY22222 on 2018/07/05 22:36
OUTSTANDING APP!! HAS TOTALLY REINVIGORATED MY PLAYING BY ADDING HUNDREDS OF GREAT SONGS TO MY REPERTOIRE!!
Subscription purchase didn’t work
by bounjour7 on 2018/06/23 14:58
I purchased a subscription to this app and was asked to enter a “code” to get full access. I never received any type of code. Had to contact apple.
IND music
by RealtorDanbo on 2018/06/13 11:57
I use this program daily with my Intellectually disabled(IND)class and I have kids who are not able to read or write tracking along playing music on guitar and keyboards!
Dissatified
by stick it up yours on 2018/06/09 22:11
This app does not pull all requested songs and charges for everything! I am very dissatisfied and would appreciate a refund since it is false advertising and misleading info to get your money!
Adding up
by Jamesnao on 2018/06/06 23:51
So the app can get some credit for making me play my acoustic more, but going from an already pretty ridiculous annual fee to a monthly is pretty whack. I am scared to see what’s next if they want to charge like this. Per week, per song? Micro transactions have already ruined gaming.
Very Good App for Beginner
by djdelrey on 2018/05/27 03:38
I was surprise when I see this app, first I download it in my Apple TV but later I look at my iPhone since I can take my phone and my guitar anywhere. I love it. Please keep adding more song but there’s already lots of something I can learn to play. Thanks for making this Guitar Karaoke.
Great way to learn guitar
by MrSammyboy on 2018/05/10 18:55
I love this app. There isn’t a better way to learn. I’ve been using if for about a month but it recently started acting buggy. Seems to hiccup a bit ( not when I’m receiving email or text). Also, stats for number of songs played doesn’t count properly. Closing and opening program doesn’t ‘reset’ it and only sometimes does turning the iPad off/on work. Lastly, noticed that the score for some songs show a chord that isn’t even in the song and docks you 200 points for not playing it. Please fix the bugs - then it is a 5 star app.
Excellent!!
by Squrrl16 on 2018/05/01 00:08
If you’re a beginner, like me, this is the app for you. Check out Justin’s Beginner Course as well.
Good songs, app a little buggy sometimes, ver 3.2.0 locks up on iOS
by cscrtaylor on 2018/04/17 08:04
Have enjoyed this app for the most part up until recently. Sometimes the app speeds up, slows down, or skips. The last update has left the app useless, upon opening it freezes at initializing song list.
Lovin’ it
by Metta por favor on 2018/03/17 16:38
The interface on this is awesome. Bravo! I’ve had it for over a year, and I love the new song uploads. Others are commenting on how well I’m playing.
Used to be good but ...
by Cr_vaute on 2018/03/06 06:15
... Recent updates turned into useless. It was awesome on all of my iPads (2, mini, 4). Now, it crashes only and no way to make it work again. "Thanks" for this great customer awareness. Make it "better" and btw buy a new iPad...
Great resource
by Filterlove649 on 2018/02/26 17:03
I use this app in my classroom, and it is incredible. My students love rocking out to songs they know. I do wish there was a way to sort songs by chords that are used. It takes too much time to find sit and search for songs using specific chords. Other than that, this is a great tool!
Awesome!
by Supercooper1! on 2018/02/12 12:59
Nice app!
Full access code
by MN.Mike on 2018/02/07 22:50
What code do I need ? Every one I used has been used or is incorrect. Plus your email does not exist. Michael
Love it
by Ironmancfa on 2018/02/04 15:35
Love this app, very easy to use!
This app crashes on older IPads.
by lookingforsteeldrumapp on 2018/01/31 20:23
I have used and enjoyed this app for almost two years. Now it however crashes and is not useable on my first generation I Pad and my older I Pad mini. It used to run fine on them. I was told that recent enhancements such as tracking {no use for that at all} made this happen. I do have an I Pad pro now that it runs fine on but I prefer to use it as a midi controller using Sample Tank etc. and not have to tie it up running the 4 chord app. If you have an older Apple device this app will not work well. This is a known problem for them but they have not made it a priority to fix it.
Helpful app
by Applesonastick on 2018/01/27 16:47
Helps with timing and cord changes.
No support
by JP56usedtolovethis on 2017/12/20 23:00
The last update caused the app to load slowly, close randomly and it was unable to maintain a consistent tempo. Paid for 1 year subscription 6 months ago. Only automated responses to my emails over the last week and a half. Update 12/20/2017 I received a response to my review from Apple asking what device. It is an iPad 2. Clicking on respond gave me an error on page. So I am hoping the developer sees this soon.
Wow!
by  on 2017/12/09 11:57
I love it! Absolutely love it! It makes me want to practice right now while my family is asleep! The songs and lyrics and chords are easy to understand. One of my favorites is “Eye of the Tiger”, but I also like The Weeknd’s “I feel it coming” rendition. Wonderful app! Thank you!
Reunited
by Guymor on 2017/12/03 05:40
This app has got me playing my guitar again. Whether your just starting to play guitar or your good enough to be the next Slash. This app is for all levels of playing, easy enough for a newbie and challenging to a pro.
Well Done, Easy to Read
by SeekerJones on 2017/11/13 21:10
Great app for any guitarist or serious beginner guitarist. Nothing better than an app that's going to help you learn songs - one of the important principles to learning to play the guitar or just to keep your chops up with fresh material.
Great Value!
by Scarcraig on 2017/11/08 23:42
After spending hundreds on private lessons I stumbled on Four Chords. This is without a doubt the best beginners resource available. Worth the very reasonable price! They're adding new songs almost daily, and it's really a lot of fun to play and practice. I don't dread the hours spent practicing anymore. Try this app you won't be disappointed. The chord recognition piece doesn't work very well, but even without it it's still a very well thought out solution to learning chords and transitions. You will learn chords faster and better using this app, and as a bonus, you'll have a lot of fun too!
Great
by Littleman90 on 2017/10/03 17:44
Love it.
I'm enjoying this
by mikesouter on 2017/09/22 18:33
It's easy to use - especially with the jamstikPlus, and I like the range of music. I particularly liked the links to videos for some of those tricky chord and transitions. That helped me a lot initially. I know this is 4 *chords*, but the only thing missing is some exploration of fingerpicking - that would definitely make me maintain my subscription.
Love the app
by Kdaddy0515 on 2017/09/18 03:26
It's great
Good but subscription is too much
by Mailablemilk06 on 2017/09/05 23:09
I don't want to pay monthly for an app I'm going to use when I want to play guitar, making a version where you pay then and not monthly would be a better idea.
Too Expensive!!
by Flamefighter00145 on 2017/09/04 22:34
I would buy if I could pay monthly!!
Awesome app and update!
by vetie on 2017/08/23 00:33
Awesome app and I am happy they implemented monitoring of my playing. By monitoring (listening) my guitar playing and providing feedback, I can now see where I need to improve. Thank you!
Last update broke the app.
by Platano23 on 2017/08/19 15:48
Doesn't start any song anymore
WOW
by BigPoppaDenver on 2017/08/19 00:25
Who wouldn't love this app?
Fun but Beware
by Manacat on 2017/08/11 15:51
Fun app but beware if you buy the monthly subscription they suddenly become unavailable if you need to cancel your subscription. Waited 4 months for a reply and get no response. Had to cancel my credit card instead.
Great
by Terry McKinney on 2017/07/27 17:38
Great for beginners or anyone just wanting to learn a new song
Really, really helping me to learn guitar!
by pingfall on 2017/07/25 22:05
Very easy interface and a nice selection of songs. I love it, really! I started with a Jamstik+ and learned the basic chords and fretting and then moved to a Yamaha Silent Guitar and am enjoying highly motivational improvements in my ability. It is really fun to see the looks of disbelief on the faces of those who know that I had never picked up a guitar prior to two months ago! Improvements desired: There are a few songs...mostly those with only three chords, that just don't sound anything like the song they are portraying. That's ok though, because as a beginner, I want to focus on proper technique, sound, rhythm and chord changes, so I am still finding these highly useful. I also have Four Chords on my Mac, but it is very quirky and not quite as enjoyable. Still extremely awesome though!
Nice.
by LordGodfall on 2017/07/18 12:36

Annoying
by JessieE.James on 2017/07/11 03:26
I really like this app but I deleted the app & re downloaded it & now it's not letting me restore my subscription. I still have over a week left of my current subscription left. Pretty mad about that.
Great app, but....
by WeeScott334 on 2017/07/07 11:19
Excellent app. Cool way to learn songs, but only gave it 3 stars because of the reoccurring charge.
Disappointed
by Sned iTunes on 2017/07/06 01:39
Wish it was a one time purchase.
Lots of fun
by ilovecountry97 on 2017/06/08 13:29
I have been playing for a few years now, but never really got the hang of playing rhythm guitar. This app helps with that. It helps timing and ands help you transition to the chords smoothly. It also gives suggestions on the strum patterns. Lots of fun
Great for beginners
by Buzzleste in on 2017/06/04 20:16
Really like it
Good App
by Fla.Realtor on 2017/05/30 11:10
Was using the trial version and have not yet upgraded to the full version but am seriously considering it as it is a good tool to learn new songs with on guitar or any other chord based instrument and vocals as well although I am not a singer at all. With the ability to change the tempo and having a metronome built in you can work up to speed required and fine tune your timing so it is not just a karaoke app it has serious music tool capabilities and with a few tweaks from the developer like a tab line and this would be my go to app for any song I needed to learn.
Playlist
by qscvbnm, on 2017/05/17 14:16
There is no "help" button anywhere and I can't seem to get in contact with any tech support anywhere. I just want to make a playlist and can't figure it out after an hour of searching. I've looked everywhere on the app and the website. I've also just run a general search on the web and it has all been for naught.
Keeps getting better karaoke
by Kat k t on 2017/05/09 04:42
Doesn't hear your playing bud it works great. If it did I would give it 20 stars!! It's better to have full access like me. I like having so many Christian songs! Thank you so much!
Ripoff
by 1111111114555580 on 2017/05/02 15:21
When you sign up for full access they charge you but you only get 30 second previews! No response to my email! Spend your hard earned money on a better app
Really like it
by Bowagart on 2017/04/29 15:51
If you've ever tried to play a song from a piece of paper, this is the app that replaces that and is much much much better!
Fun
by Xox just on 2017/04/19 02:16
Having fun while getting practice. The songs are great.
Awesome
by Uppersub on 2017/04/17 01:18
I love this thing. Being able to play along is the best.
Great learning tool
by super dudeeee on 2017/04/10 01:54
Nothing but compliments for this app. Tons of great songs loads of features change the key change the back up band change the tempo. Learn how to play your favorite song it's awesome. Buy it.
Keeps learning fun
by Brookside Jax on 2017/03/22 03:49
I love that I can check out a song that strikes my fancy and give it a whirl.
Lots of fun
by Me not so good on 2017/03/21 22:44
This app is so much fun. Great choices of music from different genres. From the beginner to someone that has played for awhile. Something for everybody.
Love this app for open chords
by sharlang on 2017/03/19 16:54
I had the app before it was subscription based and loved that they changed the model. This has been so helpful to supplement guitar lessons. I wish there were a 2.0 for barre chords.
Best guitar app!!

This is the best guitar app I have used!!!, very easy to play along!!, it shows the name of the chords and how to place the fingers in the guitar neck. Good way to practice! It even has songs in Spanish!!, I just love this app!!!
What a fun app.
by Ytzchak on 2017/03/11 15:02
Thanks and we really enjoy the app. What good fun. Keep up the good work.
Very Fun Way To Learn New Songs
by Fulk on 2017/03/11 02:55
Simple and straightforward interface. Good list of songs (and growing). Has some nice tutorial features to go with the songs, which are helpful. Good investment in your guitar playing!
Worth every penny of the subscription cost!
by oshura on 2017/03/10 14:25
I've been using this app for years and I love it. I've definitely seen the improvement in my playing skills. I've told tons of people about the app and they love it too. Totally recommend it!
Great app!
by Guitar__Jesus_Followers on 2017/03/07 16:19
This app is pretty awesome! I would use it every day, but now the price for being a VIP and getting any of the good songs is $60 this would get a five star. Other than that this is great!😄🎸
Great app
by Blackbird 1644 on 2017/03/04 12:29
Great app , four chords has really helped me with my rhythm and playing and singing at the same time . It worth the it , I am having hours of fun and learning to sing new songs.

T I love it. I learned a lot. Thank you Justin. You made playing guitar so much fun.
The best guitar lessons app
by Guitar noviss on 2017/01/24 02:34
I am so happy I discovered this app it's the best simplified an great I would have given up if wasn't for this app!! Thanks you for this
No adjustable Temp
by ZnSm on 2017/01/17 00:26
The only feature that made this app worth the beginners time is gone. The adjustable tempo allowed the user to slow the pace to play along. Why did they do this?
A weird glitch
by Dachef111 on 2017/01/16 00:57
Not a big deal but sometimes when I press play it just moves across the first measure and stops. I have to restart my iPhone for it to work correctly again.
Excellent tool for learning the guitar

Excellent tool for learning the guitar
Great app! But 1 thing
by CarsonJam75 on 2016/12/23 18:08
I love this app, it's really helping me play some songs I want to play, but my only problem is that there needs to be more songs. Not that there isn't a lot but you know. Like extend the choices, but besides that it's great!😋

by Akick on 2016/12/14 03:07
Easy to use and fun for those learning basic chord progressions.
Lots of fun
by Amygtr2 on 2016/12/03 03:19
Easy and lots fun.
Removed Tempo Feature
by SinclarMusicStudio on 2016/11/25 00:41
By removing the adjustable Tempo Feature, you have just rendered this app unusable for most of my beginning students.
Excellent Super Duper. Great Awsome
by Chops Johnson on 2016/11/24 22:25
I can know play for hours and never repeat a song. This is like GPS for music. In the old days you had to carry around notebooks and sheet music. This gives you that and so so much more. Like a GPS it's something you need to spend the time and learn how to use. Once you understand the timing of the strum patterns you can play anything anywhere with a great sounding backup band. Grade A instruments with nice reverb tails that give the sound a realistic sense of room space. By far the greatest app of all time. Totally off the hook play for hours and hours. Nothing is finer than the 4Chord. :-) *****
Good fun
by Tescot on 2016/11/22 01:54
👍 Excellent!!! 👍 take it with you guitar app. Learn to many well known songs!
Beginner has learned a lot
by lefty63w on 2019/03/12 00:44
Has selection for rhythm parameters with an excellent how-to for chord construction and strumming. New songs added that provide chord and strumming variations across the group of songs. Also songs have lyrics if you’re talented enough to play and sing (I am not, at least for right now). So far I his app has provided me with a platform to learn, the play and practice songs using basic chords, adjusting tempo and backing up to replay a section as needed. I like that it can be done with just a touch or swipe of my finger on the screen. From the library of songs available I’ve built my own playlist of songs for learning and practice. As new songs are posted it’s easy to add them or later delete from the playlist. As someone who previously had not spent a lot of time with an acoustic guitar, I find this app useful and worth the money. What I haven’t tried yet is setting up a progress sharing account (mic on you device set to On) so I could receive “a more tailored user experience, song recommendations and playing tips”. Wanted to get my basics first so may try it, now that I’m more comfortable with my playing ability.
This is an awesome app
by Rick N P on 2019/05/03 16:08
For someone who has only been playing guitar for six months, this app, coupled with The Justin Guitar app, has taught me a huge amount. I can play about 15 or so cords and have learned about dozen strumming patterns. While it might not be an app for accomplished players (I don’t really know) this is precisely what a less accomplished player needs. It is super important to be able to have fun while learning and the Hal Leonard traditional method wasn’t for me an adult. This app makes it fun to learn and to practice. Just a great idea and so worth the money! This is a must get app for anyone serious about improving. I love it! I’m 56, and have a Martin D-28, a Art & Luther Cedar, a Fender PM-TE travel guitar and a Fender Tele. This app has given me the gift of being able to play respectfully within a few short months and I look forward to learning more from it. Can’t want enough good things about it.
Great way to learn simple versions of songs but ....
by Easilytaken on 2019/05/04 12:02
With the new update I lost full access to all but a few of the songs that I’ve previously had access to for years. I believe I probably paid at some point to access the songs that I am now unable to access because of the update. If I remember correctly, I was a VIP customer before the update. Update: The software developer responded immediately and brought me up to speed on my status. My subscription had lapsed, so losing access was a “bad” on my part for not renewing. It was just a coincidence that an application update occurred at about the same time that my subscription expired. I owe Musopia an apology and have correspondingly adjusted the star rating upward by two stars. The app is very good for learning strumming patterns, chords, chord changes, etc. I particularly like that the tempo of songs can be adjusted faster or slower as you are learning. Also, the catalog of songs available is very large. Some talented people have put a lot of work into developing this application. Well worth renewing my qsubscription. Thank you.
Great Value!
by Scarcraig on 2017/11/08 23:42
After spending hundreds on private lessons I stumbled on Four Chords. This is without a doubt the best beginners resource available. Worth the very reasonable price! They're adding new songs almost daily, and it's really a lot of fun to play and practice. I don't dread the hours spent practicing anymore. Try this app you won't be disappointed. The chord recognition piece doesn't work very well, but even without it it's still a very well thought out solution to learning chords and transitions. You will learn chords faster and better using this app, and as a bonus, you'll have a lot of fun too!
Fun App but Glitchy
by Air Blackstone on 2018/12/31 00:34
You can look at the other reviews for what is likable about the app, so I won’t duplicate those praises. The biggest problem with this app is that it glitches on a regular basis. One of the most important thing as a beginner needs to work on is their timing. But this Apple often mess up on the downbeat advancing about a half a bar which will totally messed with your time. This is very frustrating and should easily be fixed by the developers. The other major shortcoming is trying to figure out strumming patterns that go with songs. You can easily start to think that you’re a better player than you really are because of the backing tracks. The interface is pretty sluggish changing from one Menya to another. Also the songs should remember what tempo you’ve been playing out. So for example knocking on heavens door is 74 BPM, but if you’re learning it at 59 BPM, the app won’t save what speed you’re trying to master. It resets to 74 ppm every time. Likewise there’s no tracking of your progress at any particular BPM. That would be a super simple feature to implement. There’s a microphone icon which I guess is supposed to allow you to record, but it doesn’t work.
Great App
by Goget11 on 2019/06/13 16:43
UPDATE The developers fixed the issues a few months ago and I forgot to update my review. This is an amazing app. If you are learning to play the guitar this is a great song book for beginners. You will enjoy practicing and learning at the same time. Old review: This app deserves 5 stars but the latest update now causes it to crash constantly rendering it unusable. If it weren’t such a good app I would have given it one star. But I’m confident that Musopia will resolve this issue and I will change it to 5 stars.
Great way to learn guitar
by MrSammyboy on 2018/05/10 18:55
I love this app. There isn’t a better way to learn. I’ve been using if for about a month but it recently started acting buggy. Seems to hiccup a bit ( not when I’m receiving email or text). Also, stats for number of songs played doesn’t count properly. Closing and opening program doesn’t ‘reset’ it and only sometimes does turning the iPad off/on work. Lastly, noticed that the score for some songs show a chord that isn’t even in the song and docks you 200 points for not playing it. Please fix the bugs - then it is a 5 star app.
This app crashes on older IPads.
by lookingforsteeldrumapp on 2018/01/31 20:23
I have used and enjoyed this app for almost two years. Now it however crashes and is not useable on my first generation I Pad and my older I Pad mini. It used to run fine on them. I was told that recent enhancements such as tracking {no use for that at all} made this happen. I do have an I Pad pro now that it runs fine on but I prefer to use it as a midi controller using Sample Tank etc. and not have to tie it up running the 4 chord app. If you have an older Apple device this app will not work well. This is a known problem for them but they have not made it a priority to fix it.
Karaoki guitar
by DeniseEcho on 2019/09/27 23:19
It’s a great learning and practice app. I'm a returning guitar player after a very long hiatus and it’s fun just to play along with. I use it on the iPad with an acoustic guitar at home and with a JamStik and iPad and headphones while traveling, even on an airplane. App support has been great because I didn’t realize how simple it was and tried to over-complicate it. And they continue to add more songs—lots I’ve never heard and a lot of oldies for me! Plenty of selection!
Best value
by MikaUP on 2019/09/20 03:45
As a beginner learning to play guitar later in life, this App has helped me progress very rapidly to where I want to be. Without this App I would have stopped learning within months (when fingers became too painful) but following songs on the App even when using simple down strums only and recognizing the song you’re learning was a great incentive to keep ploughing on. Worth every penny!
Best app ever!!!
by bmw_riderz on 2019/04/01 16:25
I'm using it to learn both guitar and piano, basically you can turn off either one on the app to play along and it lists the chords you need to know for each song and the beats keep me moving along at the proper pace. Tons of modern popular songs which was always the turn off to prior archaic learning! I cant say enough good things about this app!
Makes me want to practice
by tired of nickname trys on 2018/11/11 23:23
I’m picking up the guitar later in life and being able to play along w songs I know and love is a great motivator. Support team is responsive (had a set up problem that they solved quickly) and app is easy to use. W over 2,000 songs to choose from, it’s been easy finding more than I have time to play.
I'm enjoying this
by mikesouter on 2017/09/22 18:33
It's easy to use - especially with the jamstikPlus, and I like the range of music. I particularly liked the links to videos for some of those tricky chord and transitions. That helped me a lot initially. I know this is 4 *chords*, but the only thing missing is some exploration of fingerpicking - that would definitely make me maintain my subscription.
4chords
by lefty slinger on 2018/11/12 00:55
I’ve been taking your beginner course and jumping ahead on 4 chords. All I can say is wow !!! Justin you are amazing, I’ve progressed more in the last three weeks than I have in two years without you lessons. Beginners start right here with Justin and his apps, I promise you will be playing songs before you know it and singing. Thank you!!!! Jeff
So rewarding to jump in and play
by tupacvsworld on 2019/09/02 09:15
I learned violin growing up the hard way and this was the total opposite - just jump in and learn a few chords and already play some of my favorite songs. This is my favorite app to blow off steam and take a break from analytical work. I’ve been subscribing to it on and off for years now to just enjoy making music and relaxing a bit with my favorite songs. Thank you for making this app! PS Please bring back my favorite feature (now gone?) “similar songs” that really helped me discover songs I could play and enjoy and motivated me to learn more chords.
Very Good App for Beginner
by djdelrey on 2018/05/27 03:38
I was surprise when I see this app, first I download it in my Apple TV but later I look at my iPhone since I can take my phone and my guitar anywhere. I love it. Please keep adding more song but there’s already lots of something I can learn to play. Thanks for making this Guitar Karaoke.
Wow!
by  on 2017/12/09 11:57
I love it! Absolutely love it! It makes me want to practice right now while my family is asleep! The songs and lyrics and chords are easy to understand. One of my favorites is “Eye of the Tiger”, but I also like The Weeknd’s “I feel it coming” rendition. Wonderful app! Thank you!
Great resource
by Filterlove649 on 2018/02/26 17:03
I use this app in my classroom, and it is incredible. My students love rocking out to songs they know. I do wish there was a way to sort songs by chords that are used. It takes too much time to find sit and search for songs using specific chords. Other than that, this is a great tool!
Well Done, Easy to Read
by SeekerJones on 2017/11/13 21:10
Great app for any guitarist or serious beginner guitarist. Nothing better than an app that's going to help you learn songs - one of the important principles to learning to play the guitar or just to keep your chops up with fresh material.
Reunited
by Guymor on 2017/12/03 05:40
This app has got me playing my guitar again. Whether your just starting to play guitar or your good enough to be the next Slash. This app is for all levels of playing, easy enough for a newbie and challenging to a pro.
IND music
by RealtorDanbo on 2018/06/13 11:57
I use this program daily with my Intellectually disabled(IND)class and I have kids who are not able to read or write tracking along playing music on guitar and keyboards!
Great app but...
by Applesucks1! on 2019/05/14 21:24
Seems like a great app! It has lots of great songs to learn. If I could change one thing....it would be the ability to sort the songs in alphabetical order. Otherwise it would be a solid 5 stars from me.
Makes practicing and playing more fun
by Big Daddy 102 on 2019/02/20 21:57
As a beginner, this apps makes learning new songs fun. I highly recommend it for beginners and maybe intermediate players. It’s easier to learn the song with the beat and melody going with you. Worth the money to me
Love this app
by skknut1 on 2019/02/10 00:01
Makes playing and singing together fun for beginners. Just hook to a tv or projector and instant hours of fun for families, parties, youth groups etc who just want to have a good time sounding good together with songs they love.
Doesn’t work with jamstik!!!!
by Vidiot72 on 2019/09/11 14:17
I bought a jamstik+ for my kids to learn how to play the guitar because they get frustrated with me teaching them. The ENTIRE reason I bought the jamstik was to use this app! The demo worked perfectly but the second I paid the $37 for a yearly subscription it stopped working. To make matters worse apple refuses to refund my purchase. If you’re looking to use this with jamstik it is NOT supported.
Great app that encourages more play
by Mountaineer9871 on 2019/04/30 01:08
Love this as a beginner. It challenges me to work on new chords and on changing various combinations of chords within the different songs. Highly recommend.
Lovin’ it
by Metta por favor on 2018/03/17 16:38
The interface on this is awesome. Bravo! I’ve had it for over a year, and I love the new song uploads. Others are commenting on how well I’m playing.
Adding up
by Jamesnao on 2018/06/06 23:51
So the app can get some credit for making me play my acoustic more, but going from an already pretty ridiculous annual fee to a monthly is pretty whack. I am scared to see what’s next if they want to charge like this. Per week, per song? Micro transactions have already ruined gaming.
Great

by cscrtaylor on 2018/04/17 08:04
Have enjoyed this app for the most part up until recently. Sometimes the app speeds up, slows down, or skips. The last update has left the app useless, upon opening it freezes at initializing song list.
Excellent!!

If you’re a beginner, like me, this is the app for you. Check out Justin’s Beginner Course as well.

If it weren’t such a good app I would have given it one star. But I’m confident that Musopia will resolve this issue and I will change it to 5 stars.

Excellent to teach cord changes
Great app but...
by Applesucks1! on 2019/05/14 21:24
Seems like a great app! It has lots of great songs to learn. If I could change one thing....it would be the ability to sort the songs in alphabetical order. Otherwise it would be a solid 5 stars from me.
Great way to learn simple versions of songs but ....
by Easilytaken on 2019/05/04 12:02
With the new update I lost full access to all but a few of the songs that I’ve previously had access to for years. I believe I probably paid at some point to access the songs that I am now unable to access because of the update. If I remember correctly, I was a VIP customer before the update. Update: The software developer responded immediately and brought me up to speed on my status. My subscription had lapsed, so losing access was a “bad” on my part for not renewing. It was just a coincidence that an application update occurred at about the same time that my subscription expired. I owe Musopia an apology and have correspondingly adjusted the star rating upward by two stars. The app is very good for learning strumming patterns, chords, chord changes, etc. I particularly like that the tempo of songs can be adjusted faster or slower as you are learning. Also, the catalog of songs available is very large. Some talented people have put a lot of work into developing this application. Well worth renewing my qsubscription. Thank you.
This is an awesome app
by Rick N P on 2019/05/03 16:08
For someone who has only been playing guitar for six months, this app, coupled with The Justin Guitar app, has taught me a huge amount. I can play about 15 or so cords and have learned about dozen strumming patterns. While it might not be an app for accomplished players (I don’t really know) this is precisely what a less accomplished player needs. It is super important to be able to have fun while learning and the Hal Leonard traditional method wasn’t for me an adult. This app makes it fun to learn and to practice. Just a great idea and so worth the money! This is a must get app for anyone serious about improving. I love it! I’m 56, and have a Martin D-28, a Art & Luther Cedar, a Fender PM-TE travel guitar and a Fender Tele. This app has given me the gift of being able to play respectfully within a few short months and I look forward to learning more from it. Can’t want enough good things about it.
Great app that encourages more play
by Mountaineer9871 on 2019/04/30 01:08
Love this as a beginner. It challenges me to work on new chords and on changing various combinations of chords within the different songs. Highly recommend.
Best app ever!!!
by bmw_riderz on 2019/04/01 16:25
I'm using it to learn both guitar and piano, basically you can turn off either one on the app to play along and it lists the chords you need to know for each song and the beats keep me moving along at the proper pace. Tons of modern popular songs which was always the turn off to prior archaic learning! I cant say enough good things about this app!
Beginner has learned a lot
by lefty63w on 2019/03/12 00:44
Has selection for rhythm parameters with an excellent how-to for chord construction and strumming. New songs added that provide chord and strumming variations across the group of songs. Also songs have lyrics if you’re talented enough to play and sing (I am not, at least for right now). So far I his app has provided me with a platform to learn, the play and practice songs using basic chords, adjusting tempo and backing up to replay a section as needed. I like that it can be done with just a touch or swipe of my finger on the screen. From the library of songs available I’ve built my own playlist of songs for learning and practice. As new songs are posted it’s easy to add them or later delete from the playlist. As someone who previously had not spent a lot of time with an acoustic guitar, I find this app useful and worth the money. What I haven’t tried yet is setting up a progress sharing account (mic on you device set to On) so I could receive “a more tailored user experience, song recommendations and playing tips”. Wanted to get my basics first so may try it, now that I’m more comfortable with my playing ability.
Not working
by wontletmepickmynickname on 2019/03/10 19:07
I attempted to contact app support to no avail. The app does not open and I am unable to use it. I have the subscription and I have been able to access the app for two months that I am aware of. Please correct this issue. Thank you!
Great learning App.
by Davizinho S. on 2019/03/07 02:22
Lots of songs. Basic chords. Great for the early to mid level guitarist.
Makes practicing and playing more fun
by Big Daddy 102 on 2019/02/20 21:57
As a beginner, this apps makes learning new songs fun. I highly recommend it for beginners and maybe intermediate players. It’s easier to learn the song with the beat and melody going with you. Worth the money to me
Strum patterns
by 🧶🧵 on 2019/02/14 22:29
I had previously used this application via android. The android app offers more strum patterns for the songs. Many of the songs I played on the android app had an involved strum pattern, as compared with the same songs on this apple app which gives no strum pattern to the same song I played with a strum pattern on android.
Love this app
by skknut1 on 2019/02/10 00:01
Makes playing and singing together fun for beginners. Just hook to a tv or projector and instant hours of fun for families, parties, youth groups etc who just want to have a good time sounding good together with songs they love.
Great way to learn strumming
by Activeold on 2019/01/23 13:16
I like to have more chords, like 7th chords, rather than more songs.
Awesome!
by madalynn whitney on 2019/01/15 00:36
Great for beginners.
Great
by livingnitemare99 on 2019/01/10 22:25
They could have a wider choice of songs but great.
Fun App but Glitchy
by Air Blackstone on 2018/12/31 00:34
You can look at the other reviews for what is likable about the app, so I won’t duplicate those praises. The biggest problem with this app is that it glitches on a regular basis. One of the most important thing as a beginner needs to work on is their timing. But this Apple often mess up on the downbeat advancing about a half a bar which will totally messed with your time. This is very frustrating and should easily be fixed by the developers. The other major shortcoming is trying to figure out strumming patterns that go with songs. You can easily start to think that you’re a better player than you really are because of the backing tracks. The interface is pretty sluggish changing from one Menya to another. Also the songs should remember what tempo you’ve been playing out. So for example knocking on heavens door is 74 BPM, but if you’re learning it at 59 BPM, the app won’t save what speed you’re trying to master. It resets to 74 ppm every time. Likewise there’s no tracking of your progress at any particular BPM. That would be a super simple feature to implement. There’s a microphone icon which I guess is supposed to allow you to record, but it doesn’t work.
More metal!!
by lovesanjosesharks🦈 on 2018/12/21 20:40
Ok I am a 10 year old girl who loves this app but I would like more metal (Metallica, megadeth,black sabbath Iron Maiden) that will be so good thx

4chords
by lefty slinger on 2018/11/12 00:55
I’ve been taking your beginner course and jumping ahead on 4 chords. All I can say is wow !!! Justin you are amazing, I’ve progressed more in the last three weeks than I have in two years without you lessons. Beginners start right here with Justin and his apps, I promise you will be playing songs before you know it and singing. Thank you!!!! Jeff
Makes me want to practice
by tired of nickname trys on 2018/11/11 23:23
I’m picking up the guitar later in life and being able to play along w songs I know and love is a great motivator. Support team is responsive (had a set up problem that they solved quickly) and app is easy to use. W over 2,000 songs to choose from, it’s been easy finding more than I have time to play.
Great app!! Too expensive!!
by Sullys curve on 2018/09/22 18:29
Super easy to use, consider dropping the price though, $120.00 a year is pretty steep.
Pretty cool
by App trees on 2018/09/16 10:09
Could use a little more accuracy on the chords but overall it’s an amazing app
Best Guitar App
by GRUMPY22222 on 2018/07/05 22:36

Subscription purchase didn’t work
by bounjour7 on 2018/06/23 14:58
I purchased a subscription to this app and was asked to enter a “code” to get full access. I never received any type of code. Had to contact apple.
IND music
by RealtorDanbo on 2018/06/13 11:57
I use this program daily with my Intellectually disabled(IND)class and I have kids who are not able to read or write tracking along playing music on guitar and keyboards!
Dissatified
by stick it up yours on 2018/06/09 22:11
This app does not pull all requested songs and charges for everything! I am very dissatisfied and would appreciate a refund since it is false advertising and misleading info to get your money!
Adding up
by Jamesnao on 2018/06/06 23:51
So the app can get some credit for making me play my acoustic more, but going from an already pretty ridiculous annual fee to a monthly is pretty whack. I am scared to see what’s next if they want to charge like this. Per week, per song? Micro transactions have already ruined gaming.
Very Good App for Beginner
by djdelrey on 2018/05/27 03:38
I was surprise when I see this app, first I download it in my Apple TV but later I look at my iPhone since I can take my phone and my guitar anywhere. I love it. Please keep adding more song but there’s already lots of something I can learn to play. Thanks for making this Guitar Karaoke.
Great way to learn guitar
by MrSammyboy on 2018/05/10 18:55
I love this app. There isn’t a better way to learn. I’ve been using if for about a month but it recently started acting buggy. Seems to hiccup a bit ( not when I’m receiving email or text). Also, stats for number of songs played doesn’t count properly. Closing and opening program doesn’t ‘reset’ it and only sometimes does turning the iPad off/on work. Lastly, noticed that the score for some songs show a chord that isn’t even in the song and docks you 200 points for not playing it. Please fix the bugs - then it is a 5 star app.
Excellent!!
by Squrrl16 on 2018/05/01 00:08
If you’re a beginner, like me, this is the app for you. Check out Justin’s Beginner Course as well.
Good songs, app a little buggy sometimes, ver 3.2.0 locks up on iOS
by cscrtaylor on 2018/04/17 08:04
Have enjoyed this app for the most part up until recently. Sometimes the app speeds up, slows down, or skips. The last update has left the app useless, upon opening it freezes at initializing song list.
Lovin’ it
by Metta por favor on 2018/03/17 16:38
The interface on this is awesome. Bravo! I’ve had it for over a year, and I love the new song uploads. Others are commenting on how well I’m playing.
Used to be good but ...
by Cr_vaute on 2018/03/06 06:15
... Recent updates turned into useless. It was awesome on all of my iPads (2, mini, 4). Now, it crashes only and no way to make it work again. "Thanks" for this great customer awareness. Make it "better" and btw buy a new iPad...
Great resource
by Filterlove649 on 2018/02/26 17:03
I use this app in my classroom, and it is incredible. My students love rocking out to songs they know. I do wish there was a way to sort songs by chords that are used. It takes too much time to find sit and search for songs using specific chords. Other than that, this is a great tool!
Awesome!
by Supercooper1! on 2018/02/12 12:59
Nice app!

by Ironmancfa on 2018/02/04 15:35
Love this app, very easy to use!
This app crashes on older IPads.
by lookingforsteeldrumapp on 2018/01/31 20:23
I have used and enjoyed this app for almost two years. Now it however crashes and is not useable on my first generation I Pad and my older I Pad mini. It used to run fine on them. I was told that recent enhancements such as tracking {no use for that at all} made this happen. I do have an I Pad pro now that it runs fine on but I prefer to use it as a midi controller using Sample Tank etc. and not have to tie it up running the 4 chord app. If you have an older Apple device this app will not work well. This is a known problem for them but they have not made it a priority to fix it.
Helpful app
by Applesonastick on 2018/01/27 16:47
Helps with timing and cord changes.
No support
by JP56usedtolovethis on 2017/12/20 23:00
The last update caused the app to load slowly, close randomly and it was unable to maintain a consistent tempo. Paid for 1 year subscription 6 months ago. Only automated responses to my emails over the last week and a half. Update 12/20/2017 I received a response to my review from Apple asking what device. It is an iPad 2. Clicking on respond gave me an error on page. So I am hoping the developer sees this soon.
Wow!
by  on 2017/12/09 11:57
I love it! Absolutely love it! It makes me want to practice right now while my family is asleep! The songs and lyrics and chords are easy to understand. One of my favorites is “Eye of the Tiger”, but I also like The Weeknd’s “I feel it coming” rendition. Wonderful app! Thank you!
Reunited
by Guymor on 2017/12/03 05:40
This app has got me playing my guitar again. Whether your just starting to play guitar or your good enough to be the next Slash. This app is for all levels of playing, easy enough for a newbie and challenging to a pro.
Well Done, Easy to Read
by SeekerJones on 2017/11/13 21:10
Great app for any guitarist or serious beginner guitarist. Nothing better than an app that's going to help you learn songs - one of the important principles to learning to play the guitar or just to keep your chops up with fresh material.
Great Value!
by Scarcraig on 2017/11/08 23:42
After spending hundreds on private lessons I stumbled on Four Chords. This is without a doubt the best beginners resource available. Worth the very reasonable price! They're adding new songs almost daily, and it's really a lot of fun to play and practice. I don't dread the hours spent practicing anymore. Try this app you won't be disappointed. The chord recognition piece doesn't work very well, but even without it it's still a very well thought out solution to learning chords and transitions. You will learn chords faster and better using this app, and as a bonus, you'll have a lot of fun too!
Great
by Littleman90 on 2017/10/03 17:44
Love it.
I'm enjoying this
by mikesouter on 2017/09/22 18:33
It's easy to use - especially with the jamstikPlus, and I like the range of music. I particularly liked the links to videos for some of those tricky chord and transitions. That helped me a lot initially. I know this is 4 *chords*, but the only thing missing is some exploration of fingerpicking - that would definitely make me maintain my subscription.
Love the app
by Kdaddy0515 on 2017/09/18 03:26
It's great
Good but subscription is too much
by Mailablemilk06 on 2017/09/05 23:09
I don't want to pay monthly for an app I'm going to use when I want to play guitar, making a version where you pay then and not monthly would be a better idea.
Too Expensive!!
by Flamefighter00145 on 2017/09/04 22:34
I would buy if I could pay monthly!!
Awesome app and update!
by vetie on 2017/08/23 00:33
Awesome app and I am happy they implemented monitoring of my playing. By monitoring (listening) my guitar playing and providing feedback, I can now see where I need to improve. Thank you!
Last update broke the app.

Fun but Beware
by Manacat on 2017/08/11 15:51
Fun app but beware if you buy the monthly subscription they suddenly become unavailable if you need to cancel your subscription. Waited 4 months for a reply and get no response. Had to cancel my credit card instead.
Great
by Terry McKinney on 2017/07/27 17:38
Great for beginners or anyone just wanting to learn a new song
Really, really helping me to learn guitar!
by pingfall on 2017/07/25 22:05
Very easy interface and a nice selection of songs. I love it, really! I started with a Jamstik+ and learned the basic chords and fretting and then moved to a Yamaha Silent Guitar and am enjoying highly motivational improvements in my ability. It is really fun to see the looks of disbelief on the faces of those who know that I had never picked up a guitar prior to two months ago! Improvements desired: There are a few songs...mostly those with only three chords, that just don't sound anything like the song they are portraying. That's ok though, because as a beginner, I want to focus on proper technique, sound, rhythm and chord changes, so I am still finding these highly useful. I also have Four Chords on my Mac, but it is very quirky and not quite as enjoyable. Still extremely awesome though!
Nice.

I really like this app but I deleted the app & re downloaded it & now it's not letting me restore my subscription. I still have over a week left of my current subscription left. Pretty mad about that.
Great app, but....
by WeeScott334 on 2017/07/07 11:19
Excellent app. Cool way to learn songs, but only gave it 3 stars because of the reoccurring charge.
Disappointed
by Sned iTunes on 2017/07/06 01:39
Wish it was a one time purchase.
Lots of fun
by ilovecountry97 on 2017/06/08 13:29
I have been playing for a few years now, but never really got the hang of playing rhythm guitar. This app helps with that. It helps timing and ands help you transition to the chords smoothly. It also gives suggestions on the strum patterns. Lots of fun
Great for beginners
by Buzzleste in on 2017/06/04 20:16
Really like it
Good App
by Fla.Realtor on 2017/05/30 11:10
Was using the trial version and have not yet upgraded to the full version but am seriously considering it as it is a good tool to learn new songs with on guitar or any other chord based instrument and vocals as well although I am not a singer at all. With the ability to change the tempo and having a metronome built in you can work up to speed required and fine tune your timing so it is not just a karaoke app it has serious music tool capabilities and with a few tweaks from the developer like a tab line and this would be my go to app for any song I needed to learn.
Playlist
by qscvbnm, on 2017/05/17 14:16
There is no "help" button anywhere and I can't seem to get in contact with any tech support anywhere. I just want to make a playlist and can't figure it out after an hour of searching. I've looked everywhere on the app and the website. I've also just run a general search on the web and it has all been for naught.
Keeps getting better karaoke
by Kat k t on 2017/05/09 04:42
Doesn't hear your playing bud it works great. If it did I would give it 20 stars!! It's better to have full access like me. I like having so many Christian songs! Thank you so much!
Ripoff
by 1111111114555580 on 2017/05/02 15:21
When you sign up for full access they charge you but you only get 30 second previews! No response to my email! Spend your hard earned money on a better app
Really like it
by Bowagart on 2017/04/29 15:51
If you've ever tried to play a song from a piece of paper, this is the app that replaces that and is much much much better!
Fun

Love this app for open chords
by sharlang on 2017/03/19 16:54
I had the app before it was subscription based and loved that they changed the model. This has been so helpful to supplement guitar lessons. I wish there were a 2.0 for barre chords.
Best guitar app!!
by Germanthekid on 2017/03/16 06:53
This is the best guitar app I have used!!!, very easy to play along!!, it shows the name of the chords and how to place the fingers in the guitar neck. Good way to practice! It even has songs in Spanish!!, I just love this app!!!
What a fun app.
by Ytzchak on 2017/03/11 15:02

Very Fun Way To Learn New Songs
by Fulk on 2017/03/11 02:55
Simple and straightforward interface. Good list of songs (and growing). Has some nice tutorial features to go with the songs, which are helpful. Good investment in your guitar playing!
Worth every penny of the subscription cost!
by oshura on 2017/03/10 14:25
I've been using this app for years and I love it. I've definitely seen the improvement in my playing skills. I've told tons of people about the app and they love it too. Totally recommend it!
Great app!
by Guitar__Jesus_Followers on 2017/03/07 16:19
This app is pretty awesome! I would use it every day, but now the price for being a VIP and getting any of the good songs is $60 this would get a five star. Other than that this is great!😄🎸
Great app
by Blackbird 1644 on 2017/03/04 12:29
Great app , four chords has really helped me with my rhythm and playing and singing at the same time . It worth the it , I am having hours of fun and learning to sing new songs.

I am so happy I discovered this app it's the best simplified an great I would have given up if wasn't for this app!! Thanks you for this
No adjustable Temp
by ZnSm on 2017/01/17 00:26
The only feature that made this app worth the beginners time is gone. The adjustable tempo allowed the user to slow the pace to play along. Why did they do this?
A weird glitch
by Dachef111 on 2017/01/16 00:57
Not a big deal but sometimes when I press play it just moves across the first measure and stops. I have to restart my iPhone for it to work correctly again.
Excellent tool for learning the guitar

by CarsonJam75 on 2016/12/23 18:08
I love this app, it's really helping me play some songs I want to play, but my only problem is that there needs to be more songs. Not that there isn't a lot but you know. Like extend the choices, but besides that it's great!😋

Removed Tempo Feature
by SinclarMusicStudio on 2016/11/25 00:41
By removing the adjustable Tempo Feature, you have just rendered this app unusable for most of my beginning students.
Excellent Super Duper. Great Awsome
by Chops Johnson on 2016/11/24 22:25
I can know play for hours and never repeat a song. This is like GPS for music. In the old days you had to carry around notebooks and sheet music. This gives you that and so so much more. Like a GPS it's something you need to spend the time and learn how to use. Once you understand the timing of the strum patterns you can play anything anywhere with a great sounding backup band. Grade A instruments with nice reverb tails that give the sound a realistic sense of room space. By far the greatest app of all time. Totally off the hook play for hours and hours. Nothing is finer than the 4Chord. :-) *****
Good fun
by Tescot on 2016/11/22 01:54

This is an awesome app
by Rick N P on 2019/05/03 16:08
For someone who has only been playing guitar for six months, this app, coupled with The Justin Guitar app, has taught me a huge amount. I can play about 15 or so cords and have learned about dozen strumming patterns. While it might not be an app for accomplished players (I don’t really know) this is precisely what a less accomplished player needs. It is super important to be able to have fun while learning and the Hal Leonard traditional method wasn’t for me an adult. This app makes it fun to learn and to practice. Just a great idea and so worth the money! This is a must get app for anyone serious about improving. I love it! I’m 56, and have a Martin D-28, a Art & Luther Cedar, a Fender PM-TE travel guitar and a Fender Tele. This app has given me the gift of being able to play respectfully within a few short months and I look forward to learning more from it. Can’t want enough good things about it.
Great way to learn simple versions of songs but ....
by Easilytaken on 2019/05/04 12:02
With the new update I lost full access to all but a few of the songs that I’ve previously had access to for years. I believe I probably paid at some point to access the songs that I am now unable to access because of the update. If I remember correctly, I was a VIP customer before the update. Update: The software developer responded immediately and brought me up to speed on my status. My subscription had lapsed, so losing access was a “bad” on my part for not renewing. It was just a coincidence that an application update occurred at about the same time that my subscription expired. I owe Musopia an apology and have correspondingly adjusted the star rating upward by two stars. The app is very good for learning strumming patterns, chords, chord changes, etc. I particularly like that the tempo of songs can be adjusted faster or slower as you are learning. Also, the catalog of songs available is very large. Some talented people have put a lot of work into developing this application. Well worth renewing my qsubscription. Thank you.
Great Value!

After spending hundreds on private lessons I stumbled on Four Chords. This is without a doubt the best beginners resource available. Worth the very reasonable price! They're adding new songs almost daily, and it's really a lot of fun to play and practice. I don't dread the hours spent practicing anymore. Try this app you won't be disappointed. The chord recognition piece doesn't work very well, but even without it it's still a very well thought out solution to learning chords and transitions. You will learn chords faster and better using this app, and as a bonus, you'll have a lot of fun too!
Fun App but Glitchy
by Air Blackstone on 2018/12/31 00:34
You can look at the other reviews for what is likable about the app, so I won’t duplicate those praises. The biggest problem with this app is that it glitches on a regular basis. One of the most important thing as a beginner needs to work on is their timing. But this Apple often mess up on the downbeat advancing about a half a bar which will totally messed with your time. This is very frustrating and should easily be fixed by the developers. The other major shortcoming is trying to figure out strumming patterns that go with songs. You can easily start to think that you’re a better player than you really are because of the backing tracks. The interface is pretty sluggish changing from one Menya to another. Also the songs should remember what tempo you’ve been playing out. So for example knocking on heavens door is 74 BPM, but if you’re learning it at 59 BPM, the app won’t save what speed you’re trying to master. It resets to 74 ppm every time. Likewise there’s no tracking of your progress at any particular BPM. That would be a super simple feature to implement. There’s a microphone icon which I guess is supposed to allow you to record, but it doesn’t work.
Great App
by Goget11 on 2019/06/13 16:43
UPDATE The developers fixed the issues a few months ago and I forgot to update my review. This is an amazing app. If you are learning to play the guitar this is a great song book for beginners. You will enjoy practicing and learning at the same time. Old review: This app deserves 5 stars but the latest update now causes it to crash constantly rendering it unusable. If it weren’t such a good app I would have given it one star. But I’m confident that Musopia will resolve this issue and I will change it to 5 stars.
Great way to learn guitar
by MrSammyboy on 2018/05/10 18:55
I love this app. There isn’t a better way to learn. I’ve been using if for about a month but it recently started acting buggy. Seems to hiccup a bit ( not when I’m receiving email or text). Also, stats for number of songs played doesn’t count properly. Closing and opening program doesn’t ‘reset’ it and only sometimes does turning the iPad off/on work. Lastly, noticed that the score for some songs show a chord that isn’t even in the song and docks you 200 points for not playing it. Please fix the bugs - then it is a 5 star app.
This app crashes on older IPads.
by lookingforsteeldrumapp on 2018/01/31 20:23
I have used and enjoyed this app for almost two years. Now it however crashes and is not useable on my first generation I Pad and my older I Pad mini. It used to run fine on them. I was told that recent enhancements such as tracking {no use for that at all} made this happen. I do have an I Pad pro now that it runs fine on but I prefer to use it as a midi controller using Sample Tank etc. and not have to tie it up running the 4 chord app. If you have an older Apple device this app will not work well. This is a known problem for them but they have not made it a priority to fix it.
Karaoki guitar
by DeniseEcho on 2019/09/27 23:19
It’s a great learning and practice app. I'm a returning guitar player after a very long hiatus and it’s fun just to play along with. I use it on the iPad with an acoustic guitar at home and with a JamStik and iPad and headphones while traveling, even on an airplane. App support has been great because I didn’t realize how simple it was and tried to over-complicate it. And they continue to add more songs—lots I’ve never heard and a lot of oldies for me! Plenty of selection!
Best value
by MikaUP on 2019/09/20 03:45
As a beginner learning to play guitar later in life, this App has helped me progress very rapidly to where I want to be. Without this App I would have stopped learning within months (when fingers became too painful) but following songs on the App even when using simple down strums only and recognizing the song you’re learning was a great incentive to keep ploughing on. Worth every penny!
Best app ever!!!
by bmw_riderz on 2019/04/01 16:25
I'm using it to learn both guitar and piano, basically you can turn off either one on the app to play along and it lists the chords you need to know for each song and the beats keep me moving along at the proper pace. Tons of modern popular songs which was always the turn off to prior archaic learning! I cant say enough good things about this app!
Makes me want to practice
by tired of nickname trys on 2018/11/11 23:23
I’m picking up the guitar later in life and being able to play along w songs I know and love is a great motivator. Support team is responsive (had a set up problem that they solved quickly) and app is easy to use. W over 2,000 songs to choose from, it’s been easy finding more than I have time to play.
I'm enjoying this
by mikesouter on 2017/09/22 18:33
It's easy to use - especially with the jamstikPlus, and I like the range of music. I particularly liked the links to videos for some of those tricky chord and transitions. That helped me a lot initially. I know this is 4 *chords*, but the only thing missing is some exploration of fingerpicking - that would definitely make me maintain my subscription.
4chords
by lefty slinger on 2018/11/12 00:55
I’ve been taking your beginner course and jumping ahead on 4 chords. All I can say is wow !!! Justin you are amazing, I’ve progressed more in the last three weeks than I have in two years without you lessons. Beginners start right here with Justin and his apps, I promise you will be playing songs before you know it and singing. Thank you!!!! Jeff
So rewarding to jump in and play
by tupacvsworld on 2019/09/02 09:15
I learned violin growing up the hard way and this was the total opposite - just jump in and learn a few chords and already play some of my favorite songs. This is my favorite app to blow off steam and take a break from analytical work. I’ve been subscribing to it on and off for years now to just enjoy making music and relaxing a bit with my favorite songs. Thank you for making this app! PS Please bring back my favorite feature (now gone?) “similar songs” that really helped me discover songs I could play and enjoy and motivated me to learn more chords.
Very Good App for Beginner
by djdelrey on 2018/05/27 03:38
I was surprise when I see this app, first I download it in my Apple TV but later I look at my iPhone since I can take my phone and my guitar anywhere. I love it. Please keep adding more song but there’s already lots of something I can learn to play. Thanks for making this Guitar Karaoke.
Wow!
by  on 2017/12/09 11:57
I love it! Absolutely love it! It makes me want to practice right now while my family is asleep! The songs and lyrics and chords are easy to understand. One of my favorites is “Eye of the Tiger”, but I also like The Weeknd’s “I feel it coming” rendition. Wonderful app! Thank you!
Great resource
by Filterlove649 on 2018/02/26 17:03
I use this app in my classroom, and it is incredible. My students love rocking out to songs they know. I do wish there was a way to sort songs by chords that are used. It takes too much time to find sit and search for songs using specific chords. Other than that, this is a great tool!
Well Done, Easy to Read
by SeekerJones on 2017/11/13 21:10
Great app for any guitarist or serious beginner guitarist. Nothing better than an app that's going to help you learn songs - one of the important principles to learning to play the guitar or just to keep your chops up with fresh material.
Reunited
by Guymor on 2017/12/03 05:40
This app has got me playing my guitar again. Whether your just starting to play guitar or your good enough to be the next Slash. This app is for all levels of playing, easy enough for a newbie and challenging to a pro.
IND music
by RealtorDanbo on 2018/06/13 11:57
I use this program daily with my Intellectually disabled(IND)class and I have kids who are not able to read or write tracking along playing music on guitar and keyboards!
Great app but...
by Applesucks1! on 2019/05/14 21:24
Seems like a great app! It has lots of great songs to learn. If I could change one thing....it would be the ability to sort the songs in alphabetical order. Otherwise it would be a solid 5 stars from me.
Makes practicing and playing more fun
by Big Daddy 102 on 2019/02/20 21:57
As a beginner, this apps makes learning new songs fun. I highly recommend it for beginners and maybe intermediate players. It’s easier to learn the song with the beat and melody going with you. Worth the money to me
Love this app
by skknut1 on 2019/02/10 00:01
Makes playing and singing together fun for beginners. Just hook to a tv or projector and instant hours of fun for families, parties, youth groups etc who just want to have a good time sounding good together with songs they love.
Doesn’t work with jamstik!!!!
by Vidiot72 on 2019/09/11 14:17
I bought a jamstik+ for my kids to learn how to play the guitar because they get frustrated with me teaching them. The ENTIRE reason I bought the jamstik was to use this app! The demo worked perfectly but the second I paid the $37 for a yearly subscription it stopped working. To make matters worse apple refuses to refund my purchase. If you’re looking to use this with jamstik it is NOT supported.
Great app that encourages more play
by Mountaineer9871 on 2019/04/30 01:08
Love this as a beginner. It challenges me to work on new chords and on changing various combinations of chords within the different songs. Highly recommend.
Lovin’ it
by Metta por favor on 2018/03/17 16:38
The interface on this is awesome. Bravo! I’ve had it for over a year, and I love the new song uploads. Others are commenting on how well I’m playing.
Adding up
by Jamesnao on 2018/06/06 23:51
So the app can get some credit for making me play my acoustic more, but going from an already pretty ridiculous annual fee to a monthly is pretty whack. I am scared to see what’s next if they want to charge like this. Per week, per song? Micro transactions have already ruined gaming.
Great
by RMS1 on 2019/10/03 19:12
I think it's wonderful app with great updates would like to be able to print out chords and lyrics. Great app, great price.
Old new guy
by oldnewguitarest on 2019/10/02 04:51
App is perfect to keep me interested in attempting to play music to annoy my wife. No fault of hers it kind of like hearing a child learn a clarinet.
Good songs, app a little buggy sometimes, ver 3.2.0 locks up on iOS
by cscrtaylor on 2018/04/17 08:04
Have enjoyed this app for the most part up until recently. Sometimes the app speeds up, slows down, or skips. The last update has left the app useless, upon opening it freezes at initializing song list.
Excellent!!
by Squrrl16 on 2018/05/01 00:08
If you’re a beginner, like me, this is the app for you. Check out Justin’s Beginner Course as well.
Great way to learn strumming
by Activeold on 2019/01/23 13:16
I like to have more chords, like 7th chords, rather than more songs.
Learning to jam
by ffffgcjfghvdghh on 2019/08/09 01:14
I’ve learned a ton from this app!thank you!🎸
Not working
by wontletmepickmynickname on 2019/03/10 19:07
I attempted to contact app support to no avail. The app does not open and I am unable to use it. I have the subscription and I have been able to access the app for two months that I am aware of. Please correct this issue. Thank you!
Used to be good but ...
by Cr_vaute on 2018/03/06 06:15
... Recent updates turned into useless. It was awesome on all of my iPads (2, mini, 4). Now, it crashes only and no way to make it work again. "Thanks" for this great customer awareness. Make it "better" and btw buy a new iPad...
Great learning App.
by Davizinho S. on 2019/03/07 02:22
Lots of songs. Basic chords. Great for the early to mid level guitarist.
Great
by livingnitemare99 on 2019/01/10 22:25
They could have a wider choice of songs but great.
Pretty cool
by App trees on 2018/09/16 10:09
Could use a little more accuracy on the chords but overall it’s an amazing app
Love it
by Ironmancfa on 2018/02/04 15:35
Love this app, very easy to use!
Dissatified
by stick it up yours on 2018/06/09 22:11
This app does not pull all requested songs and charges for everything! I am very dissatisfied and would appreciate a refund since it is false advertising and misleading info to get your money!
More metal!!
by lovesanjosesharks🦈 on 2018/12/21 20:40
Ok I am a 10 year old girl who loves this app but I would like more metal (Metallica, megadeth,black sabbath Iron Maiden) that will be so good thx
Won’t Open
by MdpTX12 on 2019/06/10 02:05
Hard to provide a positive review for an app that I’ve downloaded twice and still won’t open...
Helpful app

Helps with timing and cord changes.
