  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Great content but poor app

    By Smart herez
    It’s a shame this app with excellent content is almost unusable. The app’s buttons (back button etc) when in a lesson frequently become unresponsive . The video control buttons disappear randomly. And there is no way to play the videos in landscape mode, which is basic stuff! I am using iPhone 6 with latest iOS. All in all the app quality does grave injustice to the awesome content. At the minimum, the unresponsive buttons, disappearing video controls (pause, forward/rewind, no skip back 10 seconds!) and lack of landscape mode video must be fixed on priority. Eventually the app must rewritten by some quality/experienced app developers and experts in mobile app user interface/experience . The great content in the app deserves better software for presenting it! Had it not been for the awesome content, I would have given it 1 star.

    It charged me for something i didn't purchase
  • I’m a beginner

    By new jarjar
    There is no doubt the content I encountered so far and the teachers are great. I enjoy the lessons and practices and try to use the app on the iPad everyday. I even dropped fender play because guitar tricks is so much better. But, the user interface and experience on iPad is lacking. 1. It’s really important for me to keep track of where I was and my progress as well as history of usage. While this is available on desktop and web, it’s not on mobile. The need to keep going back and forth from app to website to look at progress and history so I can jump back to a section or continue where I was is the reason I only gave 3 stars. I prefer to use the iPad for everything and I’m sure the future is in mobile, so please make the UX friendlier and easier.
  • Not iPad friendly

    By kpburd
    I’m all IN with this program, but the iPad version is sorely lacking in content and ease of navigation. The home page on the browser vs. the app reflects my 3 star rating.
  • Just updated app, now freezes up...

    By rich815
    Just updated this app this morning (3/24) and now the video lessons freezing up on me like it never did before and the app is jumpy and jittery in playback. Using high speed WiFi connection (95 mbps) on an iPhone. Was fine before. Wish I waited... Developer asks me to provide my iPhone and iOS info. It don’t matter. I use YouTube, TrueFire and many other apps with video and video lessons and all work fine. Thanks for the developer reaching out but clearly the problem not on my end.
