Guitar Lessons by Guitar Tricks Reviews

Great content  Kalkidan 0001  5 star

I've had it for a couple of weeks now. It's a theoretically well laid out guitar lesson. It also progresses very easily from one string to all the strings and so on that it is good for anyone at any level. Plus more than practicing how to play, the theory behind the lessons as explained makes the lessons last and helps the student have the confidence to independently come up with something new. Enjoy!


Great app!  Longboardsk8dad  4 star

I'm a middle aged guy whose been playing since a teenager. There's lots to keep you interested and to fill in knowledge gaps. My only complaints are (and they're biggies) is that you need to be able to zoom in closer on the tab (hard to read even on iPhone 6 Plus for my aging eyes) and there's no search feature.


It's a nice addition…  Docclay!  5 star

To their web site.

Seasoned by still learning  King Sweet  5 star

I have taken courses at a local community college. Tried online video. I was struggling to pick up things and retaining them. I finally bit the bullet and signed up for a yearly membership. I am learning several songs and having fun doing it. The courses work very well. Very glad I decided to go for it.

Pretty much gives you one video for each option you pick, in order to watch any other video you have to "upgrade".


Older Guy  Lkm4a  5 star

This is a well thought out and stimulating program. From beginner to advanced player you will definitely learn things you did not know, or had wrong. I find the instructors to be knowledgeable and very skilled in the way they present lessons. I have gained so new insights in the way I approach a song, or style. Thanks to the whole team


So Far, So Good  Smoker06  5 star

I'm far from a beginner as I've been playing off and on for over 40 years. But I'm self taught. So I thought it might be wise to take some more formal lessons. I've been plowing through the beginner lessons to see what I've been doing wrong. I never knew I had so many bad habits. I gotta say,it's interesting.

4 months in and love it.  Robbyv90  5 star

After 4 months I've finished fundamentals 1 & 2 and have made it through 1/2 of the blues course. I've experienced a lot of content and have improved my guitar skills greatly. Defiantly recommend guitar tricks to anyone who would like to learn to play.


Very good for training  Farrum0  5 star

Still new to guitar and this has been a great resource!


A great way to learn guitar  Swimmom1961  5 star

By far the best way to really learn the guitar and the theory without overload. A great combination of text with video. You also get to learn different styles with great instructors. I've learned more from GT in 2 years than the previous 10. All for a great price. The only thing better would be to jam with the instructors in person.


Get nothing  cbarrett87  1 star

It has promise of being a great app but the first thing in the category is free then you have to upgrade I'm new to guitar and you can find better apps like Yousician for free with tons of free content to learn fast!!!


Good App  Docash21  5 star

Been using it for about a month. So far seems to be good information and I'm making progress with my learning.


Great  Complainermcgee  5 star

Great guitar app for on the go. Patient instruction and I like the organization of the lessons.

Word Junkkie

Best tool I've ever found for learning guitar.  Word Junkkie  5 star

I've played guitar for.....a long time. There were so many times I'd hit a wall in learning. If there had been something like this when I started playing, it would've been so much easier to get past and keep learning. I can't recommend it enough. No matter what stage of your in, or your style of music. There's something here for you.


Practice Correctly  Tresidential  5 star

The tutorials about how and what to practice were extremely helpful. I was simply repeating the wrong things wondering why I wasn't getting any better. I'm a trucker and I can practice in my downtime with these lessons in my iPad. I love it!

Top rate app for both beginners and advanced players. Money well spent.


Great app for learning!  naturallyalper  5 star

This app is a wonderful addition to the desktop version. So many amazing tutorials. I'm using this almost on a daily basis.


Guidance  Dennym59  4 star

This is a wonderful product for the aspiring guitarist, however, I wish it could somehow be tailored to the individuals current skill set, and set forth a program including a regimented goal based practice routine. There is so much material that could be covered but a lot of it would be wasted time for non beginners. Great program overall, and evolving every day.
