Great app with lessons on techniques for beginners to advanced. They really need to work on their song library. A band like Green Day is not even in their library. Popular bands like Led Zeppelin is in there, but not even their top hits, 2 lesser known songs, really? GunsnRoses there is no Sweet Child of Mine or Welcome to the Jungle, you just get Knocking on Heavens Door. GuitarTricks needs to at least make videos on bands’ top 5 songs. Instead they have like the 20th most popular song. They do a decent job with AC/DC.
I myself am currently a beginner (Nearly 2 months in). I have tried Yousician which was ok but lacking a lot of that 1 on 1 experience and from a technical standpoint wasn’t the best for actually learning it was just about follow what you see on screen and really bright/colorful etc. This app is straightforward, you get an instructor which gives that 1 on 1 feel and you get to choose or watch all the lessons if needed on completing a certain course. That is super helpful because unlike Yousician I didn’t have to unlock levels to continue. I somewhat learned stuff on YouTube which was helpful but lacking the learning and technical standpoint I’m looking for. I honestly after watching YouTube videos got tired of y’all’s ads that y’all would play on each guitar video I would watch lol and was like you know what I’m going to check it out and I love it lol. Great ads because it is exactly right (for me). I simply cannot just learn on YouTube. I did learn from YouTube but I had no way of even checking my progress or feeling like I’ve learned much because I would watch different YouTubers and videos which were either with my level of learning or way too advanced. I feel much more confident going into this app and understanding what y’all are teaching me and actually picking up where I left off. I struggled a lot my first few weeks because I told myself I can learn it all from YouTube or be self taught but I’ve never played an instrument really, so in a musical sense it just wasn’t going to happen or take long for me to progress. Each lesson I’m learning I feel better in my abilities and adjusting and using my fingers on the fretboard and remembering finger placements, so when I play together with the instructor I can read the tabs and play together smoothly without looking at my guitar (sometimes or at a minimal once I remember the all the notes for that course/song). Overall very happy with this app I am learning a lot and I feel once I reach my 6 months mark I will be at least a decent guitar player. And now I can even say I know how to play guitar and even FEEL like a real guitar player so for that I say thank you Guitar Tricks and your onslaught of ads on YouTube lol, but seriously I really love this app....But why is this only rated 4 stars? I feel like one aspect that needs to be fixed it’s not a major issue but supper annoying at times. I feel that there needs to be a full landscape mode to the app. Reason being I’m sure people who use a phone prop it up on something or like myself use a tripod and once a course finishes I need to remove my phone from the clip that holds my phone in place, switch the course and then put it back each time, sometimes even in landscape mode or full screen mode of video if I rewind or pause the video it goes back to portrait mode and won’t auto detect I’m still in landscape. I have to constantly do that. Which cuts into my time that I have a day (which is about 20-30 minutes sometimes). That can really make me frustrated and feel like I don’t have enough time with the course. That is my only complaint, nothing with the courses or instructors just an issue with app interface itself. Correct that and this makes it a full 5 stars any day. Thanks again Guitar Tricks, hope this helps!
I’ve never picked up a guitar before and have decided to learn. I love how this app breaks everything down for you! It’s helpful to have the visual along with the instruction. My favorite part is that they even break down how to strum. If you’ve never done it before, all of this stuff is unknown. So, to have someone there to teach you all of the techniques is extremely helpful! I’ve now mastered quite a few chords and I’ve also been able to play along with a couple of the songs that they teach! Thank you for the awesome instruction on so many levels!
I’ve been primarily using the website since it has been more feature rich than the app, but this update is wonderful! I didn’t care for the old layout much, but the new one is amazing. I’m sure you guys have thought about this, but one thing i’d recommend is incorporating auto-scroll into the app. Other than that, great!
I love this app!! It is very useful and the step by step learning structure is so very good!! The only thing Is the lack of some music. There is a ton of songs I want to learn that aren’t on here. Most the songs here are all oldies or something. Help me out here, and add some more lessons for new country or something.
Guitar tricks has definitely taken my guitar playing to another level. Unfortunately the website is way better than app. Ok website it easier to track your progress and save your place.
I watched a bunch of the videos and found the program to be very helpful but found it not to be worth the cost for me. What I found frustrating was first the free trial sign up. I like apps that allow a sign up through the apple store because cancellation is simple as subscriptions can all be found in one place. Guitar tricks doesn’t allow that. Maybe they have their reasons but when i eventually went to cancel on their website they made it difficult. When you go to cancel, you need to select 1 of 4 options of why you want to cancel but only one option actually leads you to cancellation. Then you still have to read the small print (not in the pull down menu) that says “there’s nothing you can do”. These steps to make a cancellation are a bad practice. Clearly if someone is truly cancelling they probably don’t care about your final opinion so they make it this difficult to try and keep you signed up.
It is difficult to access the acoustic guitar pathway from within the app. Navigation is straightforward on the website. Similar for Apple TV app.
For a total beginner like me, it was kinda difficult to find the perfect guitar lessons that fit my needs. I have tried other apps good for structure and practice, but they lack the theory I needed to complement my knowledge, so I could get to know what I was actually doing with my guitar. To play notes and chords just to play them makes no sense to any guitar player who wants to become guitar savvy in the long run. But then I found a Guitar Tricks, I was doubtful at first and reluctantly paid for the first month of subscription, just to get a taste of it, and the combination of both theory and practice have worked out just fine for me. This app is very resourceful and helpful to get your started. It’s been week one so far and I’m enjoying the way the instructors handle the levels of teaching and difficulty. They don’t rush you out to get to do anything you are not comfortable with. Week one and I have learnt a few simple chords and rhythms, and also the importance of taking good care of my gear. So far, I can say that lessons with Ms. McCormick have kept me in touch and motivated to learn to play and love this instrument. Most likely I’m looking forward to renew for another month to keep falling in love with it, and who knows, maybe a year. Keep up the good work, guys. Totally worth it.
