Guitar Lessons by Guitar Tricks Reviews

The surfer Lyft driver

Completely awesome  The surfer Lyft driver  5 star

Enough said:)


Perfect  Garabatosyochopatos  5 star

I updated this review because two of my complaints are actually addressed in the app. There is a Jam section that allows you to play along and you can set it to loop. Also another button allows you to see all lessons within that section. My apologies to the developers. This is a fantastic app.


Scam alert  Cowboystorm  1 star

When you cancel membership they continue to charge your account and they make it almost impossible to stop the charges short of changing your bank account Update for the last 6 months the owners of this app stole money from me knowingly they were aware that I had deleted my account but kept taking my money these people are frauds and will rape your bank account


Where is the Customer support ?  Damningood21  1 star

Completely dissatisfied. I paid 19.99 for the app and the support to help me figure this was non existent. So now i hope and wait for my money back while worrying about things link to my card cancelled. I'm extremely annoyed and hope my account is refunded in full !!!!!!!!!


Best Beginning guitar course ever!!!!  Weatherman269  5 star

Have tried three or four guitar courses … all have their good points … but for a beginner guitar course Guitar Tricks is the best … the intermediate course is up next …


GuitarTricks  ŻÏGGŸ  5 star

Great lessons


Super fine  Gr8blox  5 star

Clear and complete. No excuse for any poor ratings....when the student is ready...the teacher will appear...I was ready to learn...and did. Many thanks.


Don't be fooled. Lessons aren't free.  Mcartwright6  1 star

If you're looking for a free app that will actually teach you guitar then keep looking. The "free" lessons basically tell you if you have fat fingers to get a wider necked guitar. Teaches you no actual notes or chords.


Best guitar app for beginners A+++  CrosscountryPRking  5 star

It's much easier using this app to learn because they go in such depth with how to play. I highly recommend this app for anyone seeking the art and mastery of guitar.


Great!  Izawiuuuuwu  4 star

Honestly, I am learning soooo much already and I am barely on lesson 1. This is exactly what I always wanted, an app (or some videos) that would explain every single little detail of the guitar before even starting to teach how to play. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because I don't like the fact that the app forgets where you left off. Every time you exit it you have to go back through the whole process so if you forget things easily, you may have to write down every single time where you left off before you exit the app. Other than that, great job! I'm extremely pleased and excited to keep learning!

Still Cant Play

Don't get sucked in  Still Cant Play  1 star

Yes it's free, but only the first lesson which is kinda redundant. Then it's $279 for a year from the second lesson onwards.

Nothing better  Rupert Fairfax  5 star

Structured progress, this site focuses on you actually playing music. The songs they teach are all licensed from the creators so are accurate. Great value, this site is the best when you want play actual music on your guitar.


It's working  Post_hoc  5 star

I am learning to play, and this method is simply working for me.


Well Done  Nicm69  5 star

Good app for short practice rather than firing up the laptop.

Mini Pilko

Great for all levels  Mini Pilko  5 star

This is the best online guitar teaching site that I have come across. I have been playing guitar since I was a youngster in the 70s, paid for private lessons, played in bands and jammed with friends but never felt that I could become more than an intermediate guitarist. I joined guitar tricks nine months ago and have learned a lot more about technique and 'how to play'. The vast content in guitar tricks will help you improve your playing whatever your level.


Great Tool For This Beginner  AngryGamer1963  5 star

I have wanted to learn to play guitar since I was a teenager. Now that I'm in my 50's the tools to help me accomplish that are much more advanced and this app is one of them. I appreciate the close ups of the left hand on the fretboard. Keep up the good work.


Good stuff  Darien-l  5 star

It takes its time to weed out the guitar step by step. Good lesson plan


Awesome  Ben3link  5 star

I love it, it is very cool and fun to learn!


Best you're going to find!  InEptNomad  5 star

I'm sorry, but you people who gave it one star are not being fair. If you look at the content on the site, how could you expect it for free? I don't use the app, I go online to use it on my iPad through Safari I don't much care for the app itself, I prefer to go online, a lot more user-friendly. I did a lot of research online as to these different guitars sites, and this one ranks number one. I think it's a good program! Thanks Lisa, you're a great teacher!

Best self-guided method available  trumps4  5 star

I've tried nearly every "web-based instruction" available and GuitarTricks has led me to the most progress in the shortest amount of time....


I love GuitarTricks  Rigoshi  5 star

I have been a subscriber to GuitarTricks for a few years now and I am very happy they have an app now. I can take their lessons on the road!!


Very Tricky  alivenkickin  1 star

Free to download app not free to use. These apps should state that before downloading !!


Love it  kola...  5 star

The organization and presentation of paths to learning is obvious and intuitive. I have been a subscriber for almost a year, and with this app I immediately found content I didn't know existed. The web site could take a cue from this app. As far as I can tell, the content is the same as the website, and is well worth the asking price if you are interested in learning to play. It has been a real eye opener for me.

N. R.

Great Site  N. R.  5 star

I'm learning guitar from the very beginning. Lisa does a great job teaching all of the basics. I appreciate the ability to watch and review the video lessons at my own pace. I highly recommend this site for beginners like me.
