Welcome to Yousician, the guided learning application you can use to learn to play guitar.
When you play, Yousician listens via the microphone built-in to your device, and gives you real-time feedback. All you need is a 6-string guitar and a phone, tablet, laptop/desktop that meets these requirements.
The guitar learning path includes lessons developed by our expert team of educators. The lessons, also known as Missions, cover skills from basics to advanced techniques. As you progress, you build your skills step-by-step.
When you first start, your teacher James introduces you to guitar basics. He gives tips on how to hold your guitar and explains the guitar strings, as well as how to tune them with the in-app tuner. Once you have tuned the 6th string of your guitar, you move to the first mission called Getting Started. Select Continue or the Play Strings task to continue learning.
You can access the guitar learning path via the arrow button. If you find the first mission easy, you can skip ahead in the path and advance at your own pace.
