  • The way you teach the G-Chord needs to change. Mar 27, 2019

    By MOBAFanatic
    Why the H-E-Double hockey sticks do you teach the player to use their pinky on the G-chord? Do you know how near impossible that is to do without muting some strings? Why are you teaching such a hard way to play the G-chord when there is an easier way that doesn’t require the pinky finger? I was really enjoying the app(better than the competition in some aspects) until I ran across this lesson...I got so frustrated trying to learn the way the app wanted me to, that I went back to Yousician to learn the G-chord there instead, only to find that there is an easier version of the G-chord that Amped does not teach you... After trying that version I went back into amped to complete the lesson but it was very confusing to be told to use my pinky...I really wish Amped would change this, and because there is no way to contact the developer on their website I decided to use this form instead. I highly recommend this app to those of you that are not the developers reading this, and just because I think their way of teaching the G-chord is frustrating and dumb doesn’t mean I don’t recommend this app still, I really enjoy it, for the most part.

    Let me start by saying that out of every guitar teaching app I have tried, This one is the only one that I DONT get frustrated with. Even when it’s trying to teach me to use my fingers in a way that I’m not used to, I usually end up realizing later in the learning path that it really makes changing chords a much smoother experience than whatever “easy” way I was trying to force through. The whole experience is of a quality that just isn’t matched by anyone else. They lead you through quick, achievable lessons that build skills, raise confidence and keep you motivated! Before you know it, you’ve completed 2 of the learning paths, and you’re feeling like learning the guitar is no longer this overwhelming, foreign, and out-of-reach longing in your soul. And then I lost my progress.

  • Game-changing presentation with room for improvement Jul 22, 2020

    By SalvatoreAntonioMazzotta
    I’ve been playing guitar for 14 years and hold two degrees in music, so I know my way around the guitar. I’ve also spent a few years teaching on and off. —— My daughter is 7 and started playing a few months back. She loves the guitar but easily gets discouraged when she runs into things that she can’t do right away. It’s difficult to get her to stay motivated though those moments especially when you’re lucky enough to have a Nintendo Switch readily available. Amped makes it fun for all of us. She’s only been using it for a few days, but she seems to enjoy it much more than the leading competitor app. I believe this is directly related to the pace at which the information is delivered. The lessons increase very gradually and even overlap each other, which is great for learning. Of all of the educational programs using the Guitar Hero model, Amped has the best presentation. While you could definitely learn guitar from Amped alone, I think it would be best used in parallel to a guitar teacher or related online sources. I’ve peeped ahead to check out some of the future lessons. So far, my only notes are on the technical side. -The tracking, especially when playing chords, needs some improvement. -It’d be very cool if Amped supported all usb class-compliant audio interfaces and not just the iRig. I know at least one of the competitors supports this. Overall, excellent app. We love it.

    App only works if you change your animation settings on your phone back to default. This makes my phone much less responsive in general and I think this is poor app design as I have never come across this being a requirement on any of the 100+ other apps I have installed.

    At least 3 big flaws : 1) very bad note recognition. During the first lessons only 30% of the notes were correctly recognised. The rest of the time they are sometimes too high, sometimes too low. Meanwhile my digital tuner was on and my notes were spot on. 2) If you fail a lesson you can not advance to the next one. Because of point 1 you will be stuck very soon. 3) The price ! Seriously guys you are a factor 10 off, if you aim for a popular app. Bye

    Don't bother, they want your credit card information to try any of the useful bits (im sure ill get a useless response to that). A 14 day free trial should be exactly that, no cc info required if the app is that good. It seems to take over my phone and makes it difficult to get back to normal phone functions. The app should be free to people that buy their products as a thank you, we want to show our support and keep you interested!

  • Pretty significant technical problems May 2, 2019

    By Charliezx245
    I really like your song selection and the interface is simple but elegant! That said, there’s pretty terrible lag whenever I slow down a song. Practicing even at 50% is almost impracticable. Practice at the slowest speed is basically impossible. The app also crashes not infrequently. Finally, for some reason, notes are not being picked up by my mic. I do have new headphones and they’re not terrible. I hope you address these issues soon. At the very least, I hope you make this app accessible on my Mac. If you fix these issues, you might even be a better app than Yousician. Good luck!

    By FuzzyRaccoon
    I learned so much in the short time I played. Today (when I wrote this) was my second day of playing and I learned more then I ever thought! I’ve felt the improvement this whole time. If you are stared out on your instrument this app is perfect for you! I swear this app was the 5th one I tried out and that was my last! It’s perfect; No adds popping up, easy to learn and it makes it stress-free!

    Absolutely amazing. I'm a beginner guitar player. Like, didn't pick up a guitar until I downloaded this app type beginner. I've only learned on this app and I love it. Feels super familiar coming from a childhood of Guitar Hero and love the game-feel to it. Every level I go through I feel progress, especially starting from 0. Looking to start playing guitar? This is the app for you. Can't wait to see where I'll be in a few months.

    Similar to every other guitar app . Same as Fender app. Cool app still tho. Just a lot more of the same.
  • Still trying it May 4, 2020

    By JTG1315
    The app is immersive. The lessons are easy to follow. I try to perfect each lesson and nail it with three stars before moving on. I’ve been at it for a week or so and I’m trying to decide if headphone augmented reality is how I want to learn guitar. What comes through the headphones is not what is actually being played on the guitar. I get that it’s working finger dexterity on the fretboard but it makes me feel like the app is attempting to trick me into thinking I’m doing something that I’m not. I realized yesterday I haven’t plugged my guitar into my amp for several days. Do I want to play an app or guitar? I know my basic open chords and the chord section throws me off because I want to go straight to the shape I know but the app builds it up slowly finger by finger. The app requires rigidly following this pattern which makes me overthink what’s going on. All that said, I’m going to stick with it to see how it goes.

  • Your chord and string bend recognition needs more work Apr 28, 2020

    By Ridelikeyoustoleit
    I been using your app for awhile, at first I used the chord recognition issues as an opportunity to refine my finger placement to get all strings to ring out perfect. I’m beating my head against the wall as it can’t be done...acoustic or electric thru a clean amp makes zero difference, I tune using the built in tuner...it’s frustrating at the very least. So, cut my losses on your open chord progression process and started the lead guitarist1 and soloing, you have no direction on what to bend string to...semitone or whole? Tried various bends to try and dial in the correct bend, no luck, either says “bend not heard” or something like that or wrong note. I don’t know where your issues lie, at least Yousician has a way to try and calibrate the microphone. I won’t be renewing my subscription if it doesn’t improve, for the beginning student, the frustration is high enough without these glitches already

  • Great idea. Lots of problems. Apr 4, 2020

    By shidey17
    I like the setup of the app much better than similar game style guitar learning apps and the song selection and leveling are both great. This app is fun and I usually end up getting really pulled in once a begin a session. There are a few technical issues that make the app really frustrating though, and I don’t see myself continuing past the free trial unless they are addressed. First off, there are major issues with note detection. I’ve used several different guitars and headsets and even played pretty loudly through an amp. I’m in a quiet room and it keeps missing notes. I’ve taken my headphones off and picked through individual strings. The other major issue is lag when slowing down songs. It’s not just the first time. It happens on a redo even if I just played the song. Finally, I’d like to see a bit more fine tuning with slowing down song sections and the ability to quickly choose certain sections without having to move the slider around and guess. There is a lot of potential here and I really hope to see what future updates bring.

    I really like the look and feel of the app but it can be frustrating. It keeps telling me notes are too high/low, even when they're bang on (tuned correctly and fretting correct notes) and consistently says "can't hear you" no matter where I sit or how I set up. Hope these issues get fixed soon. Until then I'll stick to the free version.

    I really like what I see so far, and fully understand that Bluetooth headset integration is so far only in Beta, but until that integration is complete, I'm not yet able to use the app to assist my learning as I had hoped to Thanks for the quick response Additional information as requested My Bluetooth headset is a JBL Endurance Sprint, the calibration procedure was completely unsuccessful I'm afraid. In addition, the very first exercise would not recognise that my headset was connected.

    Overall I find the song selection better than Yousician, but their note recognition isn’t to par yet. I can play Yousician for hours with only a few moments where it misses a note I’ve played, but Amped is lucky to get 4 out of 5 at times. I’m still using it because regardless of what Amped thinks I’m playing, I know I’m playing correctly and the practice is fun. Improve your recognition, add more songs to library, and this is a great app.

  • Not an iPad App! Jan 21, 2021

    By Bruce McLeod
    This App only runs in portrait mode, so it’s not a true iPad App, and just a blown up iPhone App. Since I always use my iPad in landscape mode (and that’s how my case supports it) I would never use this App on the iPad when playing guitar. This is unfortunate because the iPad presents a large screen to view the material, and the case allows a convenient, ‘no hands’ orientation to play and watch. Deleted, might review the iPhone version differently, but won’t be as convenient as a proper iPad version with landscape would be.

  • Not really a star since I really can’t use this app. May 30, 2019

    By merrilles
    I have MRI hearing aids which are connected to my iPhone XS Max. I would have to disconnect them in order to use headphones and reconnect them afterwards. Not hard to do, but an annoyance. Also, I would have to buy an adapter in order to use my headphones with my phone. We all know that Apple got rid of the headphone jack. Another extra expense in order to use the app. There are other good guitar apps out there to use. The developers need to look into these issues, especially if they want iOS users to use the app without extra cost.
