    "There aren't too many guitar apps that have such a full-fledged feature set at GuitarToolkit. I used to have to bounce between a tuner app, a chord website, and scale videos while practicing, but now can use just one app for it all. I've noticed my playing improve since starting to use it and am thinking baout doing some of the upgrades to level up even more!"
