Hi everybody, I am very excited to tell you all that the Your Guitar Tutor iPhone and iPad app is coming very soon! It has been in the planning stages for quite some time because we are firm believers in understanding what guitarists truly want from a guitar tuition app.
It wasn’t enough to bring out an app that throws hundreds of chord shapes at you without you understanding them or an app that is a guitar tuner. We had to go a bit deeper into the needs of a guitar player by using our experience of teaching hundreds of guitar students on a one- to- one basis. Understanding the common problems students are having when trying to learn the guitar allowed us to create a system of developing the number one goal guitarists are striving for.
Who doesn’t want to turn on a song and flawlessly be able to work out the chords without all the guess work and frustration that often takes the enjoyment from the creative process?
Well it turns out that this is what most of you want from playing guitar and I can see completely why!
For most of us guitar is not pushed upon us in a serious manner and we don’t have someone making us practise hours a day when we do not want to. Most of us start playing guitar because we loved a band and wished to play just like them and for many of us we unfortunately get disheartened along the way and give up. After talking to a lot of my private students and guitar players around the world it seems that the players who have got good and still love the instrument are the ones who found a way to keep it fun. Sounds obvious right? The problem is being able to learn enough to do what you want to be able to do and not get scared off by information that you didn’t need to know yet. I have made it my job to help you learn exactly what you need to know so you can play guitar and have fun, and hey, if you go on to learn lots more then thats great but for now let me get you playing songs on your guitar without TAB, just your ears!
You are going to learn how to recognise chord types such as the major chord, minor chord and the dominant 7th chord. This means that you will be able to hear the types of chords being played in the song that you want to work out so you have eliminated some of the guess-work already.
Progressions will teach you how to hear a series of chords from the song you want to work out and train you to name the progression and play it on your guitar.
You will be able to hear the melody being sung or played on guitar and then hear the notes and know how to play them on your guitar. You will train yourself to hear the distance between notes and know the name for this note relationship, this will make your ear develop and your ability to play melodies on the guitar improve tenfold.
Perfect Chord mode will teach you how recognise the chord shape being used in a song so you will instinctively just know which chord to play without trying out loads of other chords.
I hope you are as excited as we are and I will be announcing when the App is released and ready to be downloaded as soon as I can.
