Just started to learn to play the acoustic guitar about a month ago. Learning from justinguitar.com for the last 2 weeks and the app in the last week has been a tremendous help. I highly recommend it! I love that there is a built-in guitar tuner too.
Justin Guitar is the best guitar instruction out there. This rating is for the app, not for the instruction. I signed up and paid for a one year subscription, and have been using this daily for the last few days. I was up through module four. I'm running this on my iPad. Today, I clicked on "my account", and it told me I am not registered on this device. It tried to get me to sign up for a new subscription and a one week trial. Everything I did before this was gone. Somehow, and I don't know how I found this, but I managed to find something that said "restore purchase", and I did, so I can login again and it recognizes that I did subscribe. But all of my history, all of my progress, everything I did, has been wiped out, completely gone. So now if I want to keep track, I have to start over. And probably keep track of outside of the app as to where I left off because the app is too buggy as to be reliable. Luckily I am only on day five of the free, and so I have canceled the subscription. I would love to look at it again when it's working. In the meantime, I will continue with the website. That is at least reliable.
Justin did a decent job in Part 1. He does say it takes ‘a few sessions’ to get to 60 changes per minute. Lies. I’m at 7 months and around 30 per minute. But everyone is different so I won’t fault him for that. Part 2 first module is when I quit the guitar and now despise it. He gives around 6 chords all at once which is insane. They aren’t just a lot but super hard. I couldn’t even make some of them let alone attempt chord changes. I tried a couple of changes for the ones I could kind of do and do 6 changes in a minute. My pinky is blistered. I’m rating this 1 because it will only lead to extreme frustration and disappointment with his insane idea of blasting you with super hard chords all at once.
This is the BEST guitar app I’ve ever used. The guitar courses are FREE. If you’re looking for a great experience to help you learn guitar fast, you need to get Justin Guitar.
I’m 53 and this is my fourth attempt at learning the guitar, and by far the best course. Justin’s temperament puts me at ease and his knowledge and teaching style make it easy (not to mention all the tools (website, app and song books)). I have gained more applicable knowledge and confidence than the three previous attempts combined. I’m so confident that I’ll continue on, that I have invested in a “good” guitar and gear. Thanks Justine!
Justin is by far the best instructor I have ever had on the internet or in person. And believe me I have had plenty of both especially the internet. Over the past 7 years or so I have tried everything to “get back in the saddle” (now 71 years young), and used to play. But finding it a little more difficult than before. Justin seems to be the only one who gets it! THE BEST!
I have always wanted to learn the guitar but didn’t know where to start…I found it!
I bought a $60 guitar off OfferUp and took Justin’s free class because I knew I wanted to learn but didn’t know if I could stick with it. Two months later and I am SO happy I found him via Google! He is really so knowledgeable and kind. He knows his students and what they might be struggling with at certain points in the learning process (I.e. finger pain or strumming patterns). His modules are so helpful and you can practice as many times as you need to. I love learning how to play, I am now on Module 4 (I like to repeat/practice modules to make sure the stuff really sinks in) and mix that with easy 3-chord beginner songs on YouTube. Thank you thank you Justin for making learning guitar so fun and accessible. If I could give 10 stars I would!!
There’s nothing bad I can say about this app. Justin is one of the original guys offering online lessons and he’s always getting better at teaching. After a year or so I feel perfectly comfortable grabbing my guitar and playing for a party or just a room of my friends hanging around the house. And everyone knows that you can always trust a man with a fancy hat.
It’s been really frustrating. Since the latest update, I lose audio when I get a call or an alarm or a notification to my phone. App support says to turn all these off, which isn’t realistic as a parent. When I try to log out to reset, it freezes and doesn’t allow me to close the app. I’m now stuck between not being able to close the app, nor delete it to redownload. Super bummed. When it’s working it’s really fun. Just need it to work consistently, or get actual help when it’s down 😔
