What does Guitar learning experience look like?

1. Fretboard
Here you can see which string(s) and frets you're meant to play. In this example, you would play the B string (the second highest) on the 3rd fret.
2. Follow the Ball
Follow the bouncing ball to see when you should play a note. You'll get instant feedback on your timing and the quality of the note you play.
3. Song Bar
The song bar lets you know where you are in the song, as well as what's coming up. You can skip ahead, or set a loop for practicing the trickiest parts.
4. Tempo Slider
You can adjust the speed at which the song plays to determine how fast or slow you'd like to play your part. Start slow to practice, or jump straight in at 120% speed!
