    guitarLayers is a software created by MOREORLESS MUSIC SRL. It is used to learn or teach guitar playing. It can map out notes played on a guitar so users can then tab them and play them on the guitar fretboard.

    "I learned playing guitar on my own without really minding the theories behind it. But now that I wanted to step up the game and actually earn bucks from teaching guitar, guitarlayers was recommended for me as a place to start. I must say this indeed helped me a lot in finally learning the theories behind guitar plucking and whatnot. "

    "The interface of this software is easy on the eyes. Not too cluttered. The instructions come with a paid PDF program which really helped me learn the notes and eventually, learn to play the guitar. This is worth the purchase."

    "I like how this software really engages you to learn guitar songs like Rob Stewart's and not really some boring nursery rhymes. The instructions are really clear. I learned them first myself before teaching my daughter. This is where I learned how to play guitar myself."

    "I wish there could be some sort of percentage indicator when I slide the tempo just so I could be aware the percentage extent that I adjusted my slides from the original tempo. For now, 3 stars."
