  • 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. 👍🏻
  • Great Learning Tool

    By Mark-strat
    Guitar Tricks is packed with beginner, intermediate, and advanced lessons. Tons of tools, practice videos, info on gear and types of music and artists. The instructors are top notch!!! The app is easy to use, intuitive, has everything the website has in an easy to use package. I have not encountered any technical problems with the app. I like guitar tricks because they stay true to the songs they teach, the don't "dumb down" the songs, slow them down, or abbreviate them - they teach the authentic version of the song. They do offer some simplified versions, but label them as such.
  • Decent app

    By Paulbartolini
    App works fine just a little to expensive to my taste.
  • Structure

    By Shane_J
    When I was in my twenties, I taught 10+ people how to fly a helicopter, from zero experience to a private, commercial, instrument, instructor, etc. rating, using a structured program. Works almost every time. When I tried taking guitar lessons (3 different instructors) in my advanced years, the instructors had no plan, no structure, no stated goals. I spent a good portion of each lesson watching them display their talents. Then another third of the lesson sitting and watching them decide what they wanted me to practice for the next lesson. It just didn’t work for my mindset. I’m sold on this program. I think they are doing it the right way.
  • Great tool for learning guitar or improving your chops.

    By Word Junkkie
    I’ve been learning to play guitar for 35 years and so far this program for learning is the best thing for me. There are always new things to learn. From warm up exercises, to different styles, to teaching songs the way they were played on the record, writing songs, and solos. If I’ve ever had problems with the app, I’ve had help with them. No problems. It works for me.
  • Good website, terrible app

    By daltontx
    This app has too many bugs. Sometimes the videos won’t go full screen, sometimes the pause button won’t show up. Not easy to keep track of progress. Can’t access the cords or scales on the app. Not worth the space on your phone.
  • Learning song section can be very frustrating to use

    By 2 many guitars
    Some instructors spend too much time talking about theory and other things mixed right in with the middle of the song instruction, irrelevant to actually learning the song, and then fly way to rapidly though the chords, progressions and riffs, making learning difficult and multiple rewinds and replays necessary. (Example; Behind Blue Eyes by Mark Olesky. ) There is no way to mark or loop song sub-sections, so it is hunt and guess tryin to find the section you want to repeat without wasting time listening to the irrelevant taking and or parts you already know again and again . The theory may be interesting , but should come in separate sections, NOT in the middle of trying to learn to play a part of the song. Songs should be broken down into smaller sections for learning , or have ability to mark and loop sub-sections so you can repeat as needed. On the plus side, transcriptions and techniques are generally good, except for songs with multiple guitars in the original . “Just play guitar 1” is a cop out. There are usually very good ways of combining multiple parts for solo.
  • Better on PC

    By DanL1553
    i've been using GuitarTricks since 2008. Disappointing app on iOS. No search. No favorites. Very difficult to navigate to lessons of interest. Once you're there, works pretty well. I guess I'll just continue to use my PC.
