Hands down the best guitar app for the true beginner!
on January 3, 2012
This is absolutely the best guitar instructional app available for the true beginner. I got my first guitar at the age of 38 just one week ago. At the same time I also received a Kindle Fire. I loaded up every guitar app the markets had and set about going through them and trying to learn guitar. Most of the apps were junk. Some were okay, but weren't really geared for a completely new guitarist, despite what their descriptions said.
Guitar School was the exception, and it is exceptional. I have spent one week playing at least 3-4 hours a day on an acoustic/electric guitar. In that time, using this app, I have learned 6 chords, two sets of scales, and have strummed my way through two complete songs.
The app itself is one of the best apps of any kind I have used. The app is well made, polished, and very professional. It is functionally perfect.
Have I mastered the guitar in that week? Heck no, but I have established a base that I can now use as I move forward in my training.
And nothing could beat the look I got from my daughter when I played my first song. She looked at me, her eyes beaming, and said "gosh Dad, that sounds like something you hear on the radio!".
How awesome is that?
