Great app but major flaw in that it doesn't keep the phone awake during lessons. You have to change your phone settings prior to starting the app or you screen times out at whatever setting you are using. The lessons however are top notch and very detailed, the best for a beginner but the experience is much better on a PC. App can be used as a back up when you want to take a lesson away from a PC.
Good stuff! The material this app makes available is impressive in scope and seems 100 legit so far. I am a starving artist and I really look forward to unlocking it when I can so I can have full access.
Note: this review is specifically about the Guitar Tricks app; not about their excellent collection of lessons and song tutorials. The app is terrible. The design is riddled with all kinds of frustrations that make it very painful to use: the lesson videos jump back to the start when you toggle fullscreen mode, or even when you just change orientation; you cannot view the notation or description while the video is playing; the screen turns off while the videos are playing; and many more... Guitar Tricks is a great site, with a very good, well-structured tutorial system and great lessons by excellent teachers. Unfortunately, this app does that content a great disservice by presenting it in a very poor way. The app was obviously put together in a rush without much thought given to the overall user interaction design. It needs a lot more work before it is ready.
It doesn't remember where you left off in videos, and disruptions(app switching or turning off device) makes lesson videos start over from beginning. Makes watching videos on the go cumbersome,which defeats the purpose of a mobile app.
GuitarTricks is great. This review is only for the app. Videos constantly fail to load, and the videos do not keep the screen on while watching them.
Look, I've heard amazing things about guitar tricks. Very high reviews for the company. However. Your app is garbage. When putting a video into full screen it restarts the video. That gets annoying. Also, my screen shuts off after the designated time from system settings even when a video is playing in the app. With my other video streaming apps that is not the case. I'd say try and hire a better mobile developer for this because a lot of people use apps and whatnot to learn nowadays. I really don't want to go back to yousician because their teaching style is very... What's the word. Not in depth enough for me. However their user interface is legit. But your reviews say your site is awesome. So I'm gonna delve into the content more. See how this 14 day trial goes.
Awesome app. You can learn step by step how to play any type of guitar trough short videos made by very nice teachers! Totally worth it.
Awesome! I've been playing pretty solid for 6 months. I've been trying to spread myself out between learning songs, learning to read music, music theory.... and Guitar Tricks does it all. I checked out some local guitar lessons @ $40-50/hour. $20/month for this is a great batgain
Your lessons are very informative and even though I play I started from the beginning and I've learned things that I was unaware of. Ms. Lisa McCormick is an excellent instructior.
For me it takes brute force to learn guitar. Guitar Tricks provides me a method at a price so I may try over and over etc to learn parts. Yes other sites provide similar opportunities but I have clicked with the instructors on the site.
So they updated the app to where it works. I love guitar tricks and I love this app. I can practice and study on the go and they're training is excellent.
Great selection of songs and song styles. Instructors are outstanding. Haven't had a bad one yet.
Cant watch the lessons, it says something went wrong with my video playback but I can watch videos on YouTube and facebook no problem
Wonderful wonderful wonderful just wish it had tablature to read along with it. Still I love this app.
Great app for learning guitar, I have the paid version.
I love being able to take lessons when I'm on the go. Stuff that I can apply when I get home. I feel like I'm ahead of the game when I start practicing.
This is actually real guitar lessons great app.
It won't let me login it is saying i forgot my password when i didn't.
Hi guitartricks, you should add a search function in the app
I love GuitarTricks and the app is a great way to take your learning experience on the go.
It's ok but not my type of app
