I don’t want to pay for a whole membership to play so I want to do the basics but they give you songs that you can learn only if you have the membership it was a 1 minute video explaining what would be done but I didn’t even get to play I’m highly disappointed
One suggestion though. I’d like to be able to favorite and save lessons like I can on the site.
The best investment I have made to improve my skills. Nice source of instructors and material. Best of all, I can open the app through my Apple TV device. Thumbs up!
I subscribed to Guitar Tricks to supplement my in-person guitar lessons that I’ve been taking. These lessons do a great job and add another element of review for me. It is also great to relax from the in-person training I am doing and just learn a song here and there. Using the program on-line is great, however, using the program on my iPad or iPhone leaves a lot to be desired. The two things that make the app almost useless are the inability to use multiple panes and the non-existence of the auto scroll as you are playing along in the lesson. I am a beginner and having to try to play guitar and then move the music every 5 seconds renders the app useless to me. I am not a good enough player to do this, if I was, I wouldn’t need the app or Guitar Tricks at all. To the first point, it is great that you see the instructor, but i want to see lyrics and the tabs as well and I’d like to be able to make all of these views dynamic (e.g. scrolling with the song, ability to loop, etc). Final thought, I have read other reviews that have mentioned that the app is confusing to navigate. I completely agree with this sentiment. Finding where you are in the lesson track is not possible in the app. They have link to the last “lesson” that you’ve watched, but that could be anything, a song you were toying with, an old lessons, a tutorial on some guitar maintenance. I started watching the lessons on my iPad at the beginning, only to realize that i skipped a bunch of lessons because there was no clear way to see what lesson I should complete next. As noted above, this review is just for the app not Guitar Tricks overall. I’ve been a member for 2 months and have been satisfied with the system.
Misleading as can be
On iPad mini most recent iOS app demo runs allows login then closes. On a restart of app and iPad it just starts and closes. Really disappointed since I just bought premium service. Please fix the app or I’ll be going back to Yousician.
First off: This is the Course/subscription you want, if you really want to learn ALL the aspects with regard to playing guitar. However, the song library is severely missing content. There is hardly any Metallica (really!), not much Guns N’Roses etc. Layla from Derek & the Dominoes etc. there are just a ton of iconic classics that you would have to google (and find questionable instructors) On the songs that are there, I would appreciate a visual explanation of the Amp setup instead of just rambling it off. Lastly, I have not found a way to get feedback from instructors. Maybe I am not looking in the right spots, but this would improve the subscription.
Hands down the best tool I’ve used to learn. I’ve tried lessons, youtube and others but this has struck the perfect balance. I’m 53 years old and thought I would give it a try. The instruction started at slow pace so I wasn’t intimidated. The video tutorials were great, as is your instructors (give Lisa McCormick a raise!). It’s turned out to be money well spent and I look forward to each lesson. Keep up the good work!
I’ve been using guitar tricks a long time now and I can say that they are committed to providing new content and updating their app on a consistent basis... this is especially important to me when I’m paying a subscription... I’ll continue to be a loyal customer as long as their support remains top notch
App loads and allows login but when making a selection it promptly exits. Also, the display does not orient itself when rotating iPad. I’ll continue to use the online site.
