  • First way I’ve found to actually learn

    By Mrdarkler
    I’ve been trying to learn guitar since I was ten. About once or twice a year I would drag out my old guitars, set goals, find someone or something to teach me, and then end up shoving them all back into the attic again. I’ve had professional lessons, family and friends, books, dvds, YouTube channels, and sixteen years later I still don’t know how to play. But I think I may have struck gold with Uberchord. The lessons themselves are very easy to follow. There’s a plethora of information, all of it easy to learn and easy to access. The app tailors my lessons to fit with my abilities, raising and lowering tempos in training sessions to match my skill set. The songs are broken down into smaller categories that let you build each piece of the puzzle, before putting it all together. While this may be the best way to learn that I’ve found so far, I do have some negatives. The first, is that the daily workouts aren’t tailored around where I am in the lesson. They do seem to be tailored around my skillset, but when the lesson tree has me working on certain chords to master for the song I’m working on, it seems counterintuitive for the daily workout to throw four or five new chords at me and I can’t focus on what I was supposed to be practicing between my sessions. I’ve also found that several times, the lessons have frustrated me and I’ve had to walk away for the day and try again the next. This is entirely due to the apps note recognition. E minor for example. This is one of the first chords you learn, and the app will reiterate this through out the early training sessions. I had the chords correct. I double checked against the tap provided. I checked on google to see if there was some mistake. I listened to YouTube videos to see if I was playing it right. It was absolutely right. But I was continuously restarting the course, as it wouldn’t recognize I had strummed the correct chord. Overall, I think if I can stay motivated this will be the best way for me to learn. Cheaper than a guitar lesson, and much more effective overall. I The app makes me feel like I’m making progress, and overall I’m having fun.
  • Will charge you even if you cancel

    I tried Uberchord and didn’t really care for it. After 15 days I canceled the subscription. Supposed to get 30 days free. I STILL got charged the $14.99 even though I tried it for way less than 30 days. Not a very honest company if they give you a 30 day free trial, you cancel within that window, and then they still charge. I don’t recommend this product at all.
  • Horrible Tuner

    I kept trying to use it to tune my guitar and eventually one of my strings popped.
  • Good stuff!

    0 previous experience, just finished 2nd lesson, so far so good! Had trouble tuning at first, but using a 40+ year old guitar, so that might be the problem. Have had a couple other technical issues with it, but again, could be guitar. Very happy so far

    it's really smart and helpful in the sense that it can tell when you're playing the right or wrong chord!
  • The most advanced technology ever

    This app has the most advanced technology on guitar ever. Very intuitive and learns your weak points and leads you to the easiest and quickest way to learn. Also very fun to practice since it has great drums jam tracks etc. You will never get bored practicing and like to play more. I highly recommend it. I am 61 years old and has no affiliation with the developers. This is an honest review .
  • Lots of audio recognition issues

    You can only get so far before the app will stop recognizing the notes/chords you play. Support is unhelpful; they’ll just suggest you try using another guitar or another phone, so if you don’t have access to either, you’re out of luck.
  • Lost legacy paths(FIXED)

    By Musicman494
    I’ve had uberchord since the very first updates and was a very faithful user for quite some time. Although I had stopped before the new subscription plan had come out I was still happy to know that uberchord would let me use the old legacy paths and that I could return to finish them if I wanted. However after going on the app recently, I was very disappointed to see that these legacy paths had been removed from the app completely. I would sincerely appreciate it if I could get access to these paths again and would continue my use of uberchord if that happened Edit: I don’t know what happened but after logging into the app again after three days the old legacy courses were back. Thanks uberchord very much for creating such a quality app for guitar!
  • Great!

    I think this app is a great way to learn guitar.
  • Minor requests but great app!

    With this app, I might finally learn how to play guitar! I've tried several times to learn, but the gamification and simplicity of this app make me keep coming back. I subscribed I wish the app had some kind of call-and-response feature where the learner plays a chord and then the app plays what it should sound like. Sometimes, the app would think I had played the chord, when in reality, I had just barely plinked out all the notes one at a time. I wanted the app to give me some time to sit with a new chord and perfect my technique. Also, the app is very light on technique. They need to work on a lot more video lessons for subscribers that teach the technique beyond just playing the chord
