Awesome  TheEagleIFD  5 star

Awesomeness balled inside of awesomeness.


Already learned so many songs!!!!  WatYouPickle  5 star

I highly recommend for beginners, it’s super helpful and worth it


A Must Have... But A Tad Glitchy.  Seithooos  3 star

I’ve been having a lot of trouble setting up playlists. It takes a long time for it to show up on the list of playlists once I hit create, sometimes not showing up at all. I typically exit the app and restart, but even then sometimes the playlist doesn’t show up and I’ll have to recreate it. When I try to rearrange the song order, the app becomes glitchier. Dragging the song to its respective spot causes it to freeze in place sometimes, oftentimes becoming transparent and overlapping with other song titles. I’ve had to create spur-of-the-moment playlists right before I play a set due to last minute song changes, and so I’m dependent on the app’s functionality at times. I would appreciate it if these things are fixed at some point! Thank you!


Shame on these developers.  REVIEW OF A LIFETIME  1 star

I paid for this app. They have now made it spammy with ads and took away many features. I PAID FOR THIS APP. It has declined in quality!!!! Unethical to remove features in a paid app.

Nick D215

Thank You  Nick D215  5 star

I just wanna say thank you for being so reliable and making it very easy to learn any song that’s on my mind. You guys rock!

Ed Phuket Thailand

super! 5star  Ed Phuket Thailand  5 star



Tabs  irao89  5 star

The best guitar cord/lyric sheets


Perfect for any level guitarist/ukulele player  bettyandnedluver123  5 star

With millions of tabs on this site, there isn't really a song you can't find. They're all tabbed out in a very easy to understand way so that at any skill level you can play your favorite song with ease. I highly recommend this app, I myself love it, and am always on it.


So good!  Pboucherie  5 star

Upgrade looks and runs amazing! Love the new features and makes it super easy to learn tabs. Finally, I can read rhythm directly from tabs (and not just try to listen and guess). Seriously great app

Spongebob 1776

Very useful  Spongebob 1776  5 star

I’ve used a lot of chord sites before, and Ultimate Guitar is by far my favorite. I don’t even play the guitar. It works great for piano, so don’t be thrown off by the name. All around great app 👍


The app has changed  Ddavidkkim  1 star

I purchased this app a couple years back and then when I use it now it tries to make me subscribe to a membership when I already bought the app. It makes no sense why I cannot even transpose the chords when I pad for this app. Instead it wants me to pay more. Very disappointing, I would never recommend this to my friends or anyone I know

Mr fatpat

Good app  Mr fatpat  5 star

Very cool app love it showed my brother now he has it as well

Stealer eater

Not Bad  Stealer eater  4 star

Ok just to get really good stuff you need to get pro which costs. 🙁 other than that it’s good


Don’t pay  Cd3564  1 star

Stick with the free version. Paying somehow gives you more ads for “upgrades” and half the tabs don’t work.


Great but...  josh360m  4 star

Awesome app. BUT. Need to add numbers for a chord selection. Big missing feature.


Ideal tool  Altthenicknameaaretakrn  5 star

One word: Awesomeness


Sweet app  Vermpo  5 star

Love the app. It has a huge tab selection. I also really like the Tab pro feature. Very helpful.


Super useful  JessMcCod  5 star

Love this app. Have been using the service for the past 15 years.


Greatest tool in the history of ever.  Majik18  5 star

As a lightweight teacher and various user and gig user I am very supportive of this app as a tool to teach and to use if you're not a big fan of memorizing music I use it all the time and I'm very proud of what they've created; the things that they're using in the app (be it tools or recommended songs) very creative tools of decorating to make this app very amazing amd useful. I love it and I've used it for years since I've begin playing guitar at age 15 now I'm 22. I will continue using it all I love this app. And recommend it to every student that shares the passion.if I had to say anything. I'd say the tuner. I currently go to guitar tuna for a quick tune. You should but them out or consider your own tuner with mic. Otherwise A++++

Good Until

Gets better with every update  Good Until "Upgrade"  5 star

Great app. I use it for all my song playing needs. Each update makes it better. Worth the money.


Unreal  ItchieG  5 star

What an app, if you want to learn nice things without a college degree to understand sheet music, you’re sorted! 5/5


Chords and lyrics  Magickayz  5 star

Love singing along to songs while playing guitar

Ali04 :D

Best Guitar App  Ali04 :D  5 star

Best guitar app out there, really user friendly, just download it 👌


Very good  fun4me2beat1yoi  5 star

Helped me a lot with my words and timing


Obnoxious pop ups  Dandiesel  1 star

Stop asking me to thank you after every app release, absolutely obnoxious prompts in app! A good app ruined by sneaky UX patterns.


Great for ukulele too  Mvladivostok  5 star

Such a great app. A bit more control for auto-scroll speed would be ideal, but other than that, it's perfect.

Jacoustic boy

Guitar J.  Jacoustic boy  5 star

Great App Reliable, always available, syncs all your songs, files them and helps you play , explore, and have fun 👍

Mrs Mike23

User friendly!!  Mrs Mike23  5 star

We’re all busy these days. How wonderful to have an app that is so user friendly. The data base of songs is endless and transposing is easy. This is my first go to when I need to learn a new song! Thank you!


Get this now  1410RIZZLEKICKS  5 star

I love it so much and l only got my ukulele today and I have learned 2 songs in 1 hour


New update is fantastic  ThyFather  5 star

I'm playing at a pretty low level and I'm finding the simplify button great for a lot of songs which I simply couldn't play before.


Awesome but  Shinjinami  5 star

I love this app but with the last update the app crashes when I edit anything. Please fix this.


Awesome app  MarkonoNomo  5 star

It has amazing material and tools to help you become a polished guitarist


Best guitar tool  RayStrodl  5 star

This has become one off my main tools In trying to become a better guitarist. Access to the tools, tabs and chords of songs I want to explore to improve my playing and develop my own style has become invaluable.

JP Delport

Ukelele Tuner  JP Delport  5 star

Awesome app but...  EnixEriz  4 star

Would love to give this app a 5 star as it is extremely helpful however, with the latest interface update, the interactive tab is not in sync with the audio. I don’t know if this is only for me but any help would be appreciated.

Chester Mpy
