  • Where is my path??? **Updates

    By Vivianzh233
    I am a very very real beginner, with zero guitar experience. I newly got a Fender guitar to start with, so I downloaded and subscribed this app. However, the my path function in the app always shows an error, and nothing comes up. I cannot find a solution on the website. The website version of my path works, and the lessons are great! The New Year deal is reasonable, too. I would keep it a 3-star because of the website version, but the app really needs some improvement in 2018! **Updates: I just got the reply from the developer yesterday. Because of the time difference, I did not have a chance to email them on time. But when I checked the app this morning, the problem is fixed!!! I am definitely willing to change my previous star rating, although they did not ask me to do so. Best developer team I have ever seen! Good job, Fender!
  • Good start

    By DR
    Love the production quality. Insane that a native iPad app is still “in the works”, given that for most players, the iPad would be the default medium for delivery. Fix that ASAFP and you’ve got a long term customer.
  • Pop music guitar not working

    By Leapyrfemme
    This is a good app for beginners. Love the different views for finger placement and the short lessons. However, i am not able to access my lessons as the Pop Acoustic path is not working; making the app useless for me since I cant retrieve my lessons and progress.
  • Portrait > Landscape > Portrait > ARGH!

    By CrispyAardvark
    Please change the app so it can just be viewed in landscape mode instead of switching between landscape for videos and portrait for everything else. What a pain in the iPad...
  • It is 2017....

    By Runner702
    Content seems ok, I look forward to using to start seeing some progress. Seriously though, it’s 2017 and an app for the iPad size screens would be great. Navigation in both the app, and the website leaves a little to be desired, but it’s manageable.
  • Does not work on iPhone X

    By Pa2ak
    I just wasted an hour of my life theming to log in. I subscribed to the free month then it would not let me log in. I love my Fender guitar ( not as much as my Taylor) but hate the app.
  • Doesn't work

    By sluss
    I'm stuck on the second free trial screen. Subscription acknowledged by Apple but not recognized by the app. I fumbled around on fender play support nothing helpful in this case. Emailed fender as requested in other reviews no response. There's something fundamentally broken with the app/subscription system here.
  • Poor

    By Dev Jim
    I would expect a “how to” from the product manufacturer to be much more financially accessible, if not free (like a number of other resources are). I’m a Fender guitar owner and yet the cost of this makes it a non-starter. Disappointed in you, Fender.
  • Can’t make it work and is way to basic

    By Die Jay
    The only thing I found nice is the part where you can play along with songs, but I keep getting a “error loading course” message. A lot of the content is “parts of the guitar” and not actual help on how to play. I was using Uberchord and I’ve cancelled because it won’t get most of the chords right. I think if you want to really learn, you should go to the traditional way or find a good YouTube channel.
  • Perfect For Beginners!

    By Multi 53
    I love this app, it does exactly what it says...teaching guitar for beginners. It teaches in a way as not to overwhelm you which is easy to do for a true beginner. The instruction makes it very easy to understand and follow. Practice each step and move on when ready. It keeps me interested in learning which is difficult for me (ADHD). Not sure the reason for some of the poor reviews but, if your a beginner and want to learn...this is your app! Great job!
