  • Very good content

    By Spinning.....
    The content (lessons) have been excellent. The app is missing some of the functionality that the web version has (e.g., lesson progress). I've found Guitar Tricks (web and app) to be well worth the subscription as I've started learning guitar
  • iPhone XR not supported

    By Badbada
    Love the desktop site, but the app is a different story. It does not work well in my iPhone XR. Would love to use this outside of my music room. Pleas update to support newer devices.
  • Great app for learning Guitar skills.

  • The best

    By bustedcar
    I’ve been playing guitar for 35 year on and off and goes years without playing. But everything I do with this website and great teachers I learn something I didn’t when I started a tutorial. Thank you for keeping inspired to play even when I just don’t have the time. Kudos !!!!
  • The best online lessons but an app that needs help...badly

    By Kennardy
    After finding Fender Play to be terrible, I switched to Guitar Tricks and it is a wonderful learning platform. The content, the pace, the instructors are all great BUT...the iPad APP is needs help, badly! First off, it is very hard to know what lessons you have completed!! PLEASE, Guitar Tricks, progress bars are on the web version! Move it over to the iPad and AppleTV app! Also, in the iPad app when you click on the three bars in the top right for options, the full list does not appear and you cannot scroll down! You can even see part of a word that is being cut off but you cannot get to the whole list. Also, in the bottom left corner the lesson series button is cut off. I can click it but it’s shoddy programming. Lastly, even on free YouTube videos that teach Guitar (almost any instrument) instructors put the chords and/or tabs on the screen. Please overlay the chords and don’t make us download and print the chords and tabs. On many lessons, there are music bars below the video but nothing on them. In closing, if you want to learn to play guitar, Guitar Tricks content is the best but the apps need help...a lot of help. My WORKAROUND is to put a link to the web version on my iPad home screen. Also, my best system is to use the AppleTV app for the video portion and the web version on my iPad with the sheet music pulled up...but I should not have to do a workaround on an otherwise great learning platform.
  • Good learning and practice tool

    By Keith's iPad 4G
    The app is great for easy access to good content. I like the instructors level of detail and pace for each level. The app gets ongoing improvements which is good. I use it almost every day and they keep adding content which is key. Update : Nov 2018 > still using Guitar Tricks daily and am starting to use courses for different styles which GT provides. I've see no other online sites that have the level of video training for beginners through to advanced. Lastly GT's content covers many genres. Always best quality for each and every lesson.
  • A beginner,s opinion

    By Strumin Tim
    I have looked at a good number of other guitar teaching programs, and Guitar Tricks is the best that I have seen yet.
  • I love this app!

    By shellerfoot
    I am a beginner- I learned more in a week of using Guitar Tricks than I did in two weeks of apps that listen to you play. The instructions are excellent- well presented and easy to understand. My 12 year old and I are learning together- me on a nylon string acoustic and him on an electric and the lessons are well suited to both of us. The only thing that keeps me from putting a 5 is that the app could use options for some of the things available on the full website such as the tools and being able to mark lessons as complete. It would also be a great feature if the music sheets would scroll down with the songs as they are played - songs that are copyrighted can’t be printed which means it is impossible to play along without memorizing the song.

  • All you need 👍🏻

    By Willie Stoner
    I love Guitar Tricks and all the awesome content. The back button is not the best it is difficult to get it to work. You have to try a few times till it will work. All in all it’s a great way to learn. 👍🏻
