    "I played the guitar for years. I was basic and boring. This opened up a whole new world for me. I can flay seventh, ninth, and fifth chords, major and minor, and it's like I'm a real musician. Highly recommend for anyone tired of playing E,C and D."

    "I've recently started learning guitar, and I LOVE this app. It's like a cheat sheet for my favorite songs. It gives me the chords and lyrics, and there's also interactive guitar lessons on here. I am taking lessons in person too, but this is very helpful for my self-study time. I like it that I can search by difficulty level too, so i don't get in over my head with a song too hard for me. Overall, I love it!"
