App Store reviews
I’m inspired and entertained
I played with Uberchord for a couple of days, just an old iPad and an acoustic guitar, and it worked great. It was fun, it successfully recognized the notes and chords with just the iPad mic, it inspired me to keep playing. Then, approaching the end of my trial period, I decided to be sure I was choosing The Best Guitar App to commit to (wanting to do the most cost effective long term subscription). And whoa, it’s hard to figure out the various pros/cons of the myriad competing apps with any certainty. I tried a couple, was on the fence... ...but in the end I realized there was only one that genuinely entertained me, looked gorgeous (hats of to the design mind(s) on this one!), brought me back for more sessions, and actually improved my playing. Uberchord is the one for me, for the moment at least. I’ve since tried it with an iRig 2 and an electric guitar. That works well too and is a good option when I’m playing later at night and want to be a bit quieter. But there’s something about the simplicity of iPadded Uberchord + guitar = fun that reduces the friction and makes it easiest for me to grab ten minutes a day and keep progressing. Thanks, Uberchord! This has ended a ten year pause in my guitar progress. (My background: I started playing guitar 17 years ago and have taken lessons off and on in the time since. I’ve never really gotten very comfortable with it but I’d say that remains my goal: comfort/fluency, ability to pick up a guitar or uke and make noises that match my mood or thought. No need to be a rock star or even play for anyone but myself.)
Helps me learn to play without looking
Just on the free version for now. Want to train myself not to look at fretboard. This helps because I don’t have to turn my head to verify I’m playing a note or chord correctly. Obviously I’m a beginner. With experience I hope to be able to do this by ear but in the meantime this helps.
My best investment in learning guitar
I’m a late entrant to learning an instrument in life. I started my quest after gaining confidence at learning there was such a wealth of resource for learning remotely. I tried numerous apps, YouTube tutorials, and even zoom lessons. They all had their charms and helped me, but nothing equaled the value I got from this app. One can easily become overwhelmed at where to begin. Begin here! And then just keep beginning here— Uberchord has a new warmup to get you going and daily challenge just for the actual skill level it measured from your practice. This is the future of skills based instruction getting underway as we will all come to enjoy it, using AI as to personalize a range of instructional content to your specific needs as they change from day to day. If you learn something and then forget, whether in the same practice session or a week later it will remind you. Gently at first and then more abruptly. I have spent hundreds on instruction in some form this year, but pound for pound there is no question for his was my highest return on investment. Uberchord — you rock!
I tried 10 apps and this is fantastic
I’m so much more focused with practice and having 100 percent more fun.
UPDATE: Feedback Is Key
I have been using the app for a month now and if you are like me and want to know how you are doing with something you are learning, this is the app for you. I took some group lessons which was a big help, but this program has really upped my desire to practice which is the key to getting better at pretty much anything. Whatever gets your axe in your hands will help you get to where you want to be. I look forward to playing with this app and that is saying something if you knew me. Thanks to the developers. UPDATE: I am now using a Rockband microphone with the apple camera adaptor and i think it helps with chord recognition issue.
Awesome way to learn guitar!
Wow! This app is incredible. I have been playing for about a week & I can already strum chords that sound recognizable. This is a game changer for me. Totally addictive & makes learning fun! My only regret is that I didn’t buy this app sooner! Thanks!
This app does not work with iPad Pro. Can’t tell the difference between E notes especially and take 20 to 30 seconds to register a chord strum. Checked levels on the an all was good so something is wrong with the note recognition. Couldn’t get past the Em first chord exercise could barely tune my guitar. Guitar tuna on my iPhone next to my ipad was able to pick up everything.
I have been trying to teach myself to play the guitar for about 6 months. I tried several different apps but this is the only one that actually taught me not only the chords but strumming and rhythm.
Uberchord Guitar Lessons
I am a 52 year old first timer to playing electric guitar. While I was trying to look for ways to learn, I came to realize I would want a very structured yet economical and on demand system. Uberchord has been good to me last 4 months. I am almost past “Beginner” and just started playing easy songs that comes with the program. PS. Apology to Ann Lennox for butchering her Sweet Dreams”. Will get better someday.
Excellent for my beginner self!
I started playing guitar about 2 years ago and i was horrible at practicing regularly. For a variety of reasons i just sucked at it. Uberchord was just what i needed and since Christmas i think I’ve made a lot of progress in very little time. I sound like a commercial. I think you are the only paid product i have ever bought! Great stuff, keep it up, I’m at almost 100 pics now!!!! You have to earn pics in the various exercises to open up more advanced exercises. Great visualization with finger numbers on strings & frets. You can also slow down drills which is key when i hit a hard one. The simple discipline of practice i needed of going between two chords, or more as i progress is what was missing from my lesson to lesson. Even at 5 stars this is under rated! Get started with the free parts and for me it was simple to buy it as i progressed and was for once excited to move forward. My set up for this is: Telecaster, cable to an iRig, iRig to iPad... iRig to Amp. I use an external Bluetooth speaker for output from the iPad (or iPhone) but use the mic in from the irig. So i had to buy a 2nd cable and iRig, but it can work with out that. Over Xmas i actually just went guitar to irig to iPad since i was at my in-laws. Also the chord finder is pretty cool as well.
Provides a good structure to learn chords
Really like this application as it gives me a good learning structure (never taken lessons) to learn guitar chords. The app forces me to play the correct tempo, is a wicked task master for correct fingering, and is very intuitive. Only downside is the program “hears” every little mistake better than the human ear. Some chords, particularly barre chords, can be frustratingly difficult to play to UberChords satisfaction. Overall, in the absence of a guitar teacher, this is an excellent way to learn and measure your progress. I recommend this app
This app is absolutely phenomenal. I had never pocked up a guitar in my life. Im now 42 and learning to play. Ive been using this app for 2 months now and have learned so much. My family and I have noticed the progress and its all thanks to uberchord. This app is easy to use and teaches you in a way thats fun and works through progression and repetition without being annoying. I am not following along with songs. Learning new songs and loving every minute of it. The app is affordable for what it does and os worth every penny. Thank you for creating this app. Looking forward to making it to the very end and learning as many songs as possible from the library.
Love! Improved so fast! But...
Absolutely love this app, I’m already having gigs and jamming with experienced artist! But... Is the app ever going to be optimized for bass as well as guitar? In addition to that, is there a way to start incorporate scales and soloing patterns? Thanks again Uberchord team!!
A good application for training
So I am using iPhone XS and Uberchord app has a problem recognizing G/D. Uberchord is hearing and correcting me on the other chords just fine but G/D is hanging it up and slowing me down on my progress.
Great for beginners who dont want to pay for experience
I have not paid anything on this app as of right now and I went from a guy with no experience to a guy that can strum many a chord at a campfire. Daily warm ups are very useful!
I take lessons once a week, but this app has been a great supplement...I feel like I’m making better/faster gains since using it. A few snafus but overall a fun (& yet challenging) way to improve guitar skills!
Great to learn guitar
I don’t have time right now to find an instructor and go to a lesson so this is a great way to learn on my own. I enjoy the structure of the lessons and the ratings. The complaint I have is the warm ups pull in chords I don’t know at all and are too hard (the bar chords are really hard for me. I have pretty small hands). Otherwise love this app.
Great for getting into guitar
It’s free it’s easy and there’s no ads or membership you just need an account and I’m just beginning and it’s really easy to start. I just hope you don’t need to pay for a membership
One of the finest apps on the App Store. In any category. Pure genius. Buy it
Stoked to pick up my guitar and use Uberchord! I can see major progression in my playing. 🙌🏻🤙
Overall this app is amazing and very intuitive. The feedback system is cruelly correct in that you cannot progress until you’ve done the exercise correctly. Well done.
Fantastic app! I am really enjoying it and will continue to be committed to learning and practicing the guitar!
