Learning made easy-er

What’s to like so far (a few weeks in), for guitar only? Instructors speak clearly and visuals that accompany them are usually really good. As an example, seeing front and top views of the fretboard while they play really helps one see where the fingers go when. Also great is the review function, I don’t love turning my phone’s mic on for apps, but this is great that it listens and grades you, so use it. Use of tablature is welcome as well as the scrolling chords by name. Strum along in time. Some things that seem off? Settings for “counting in” happen with some types of exercises but not others, regardless of the settings I change. Also, the measures themselves in certain exercises aren’t physically/visually the same width so the time keeping aspect “speeds up” and “slows down” in an odd way. I know even sheet music sometimes doesn’t stay consistent- but for learning purposes it does make it harder to keep a consistent pace. I understand price and value are highly variable-this is the most expensive app I have purchased on my phone. Also, I did try to use the Fender purchasing discount at a dealer and they had never heard of it-so maybe spreading that good word would be a good thing to save us some money supporting Fender. Over all a great app that I hope keeps me growing my skills for a long time to come.

Easy to use

Many choices. Good instructors.

I have learned a lot

Overall, great feedback and it is like having your own instructor when ever you need it. The app has different levels of skill and teaching. I like the instructions and I also enjoy the ability to pick up where I left off.

Pay app. Expensive pay app.

Disappointed to find an app then open it to find out its $150 for a year. Or $20 a month which comes out to $240. I’m not against folks making money. However, one should advertise their expensive pricing prior to download. Garbage app. I highly recommend that consumers on the App Store realize that not buying what you want only makes what you want cheaper and more available. As a society this one fact is true. The more folks who restrain themselves from stupid purchases turns said stupid purchases into smart choices. This app does not deserve any stars. As one must spend money to even use this trash.

No sound on practice sessions

Sound doesn’t play on my iPad on practice sessions. Works fine on video instruction.

It’s pretty good but the fixed grin of the tutors is creepy.

I’ve never picked up a guitar in my life, but I’m trying. Is there a tutorial on how to actually use the Fender Play app? I subscribed but I’m having a hard time navigating the app and trying to figure out the best way for a beginner to learn how to play using the app.

Best teaching app

Need more bass songs. Adjusting the mix on the play along is great to hear the bass line on songs with out lessons and learn more songs but trying to learn by ear is challenging. Maybe having the bass tabs available on most songs even without a full lesson would be an option. Still the best app available even for bass players!

Great for many levels

I am very pleased with the depth and variety of this app. It was good for someone relatively new to the guitar. There is enough structure to help you progress and enough variety to keep you interested. The discount of Fender items is a great perk as well. I do wish that there was a way to group so of their non-lesson items together by skill level.
