Hey hey everybody. My name is Ted, and I hang out with metal bands doing videos, and taking photos. For the past two years, on tour, and raging I saw that all of them can pick up a guitar and start playing. It inspired me to pick up a guitar and begin teaching myself, and having 9 people i can go to for free one on one lessons.
So, on April 4, 2015 i went to the closest music store, and picked out an acoustic guitar. Got home right away, downloaded the Guitar Tuna (Arnold Voice) app to tune my guitar, and it had a chord library that made it easy to start learning. After a couple hours and sore finger tips on my fret hand, I saw the yousician ad, so i checked out a video, and decided to download the free version. After the one hour lesson I was hooked, and it wasn't enough, so I went premium knowing I would play everyday and have fun learnin.
This application is clever and disguises the learning process as a game which makes it fun. When new techniques come up, or learning chords, there is a video that helps guide you. A couple things i love is with any song/exercise you play, you can put it in practice mode, change the tempo, and pin point parts that you would need improvement such as chord transitioning, and moving around the frets. Another huge plus is that you can import guitar tabs of your favorite songs, guitar exercises, and save them into the app.
I'm going on week three, I remember chords, their shapes, and working on the transitions. I would recommend this for anybody who would like to pick up a guitar. It is a fun, and you can really learn, remember, and apply.
