Getting back into it 5/5
By AbuWorking mom of 3
Helps to get me back into the guitar. Great design and functionality. Works perfectly
I wish there were still those personal videos
Great app, constantly improving 5/5
The developers of this app clearly listen to feedback--they are constantly adding new features that make it even better!
Best few bucks i ever spent 5/5
Well worth the price for speed learning songs on the fly
Highly Recommend!!!!! 5/5
So I have been playing guitar for a few years now, and I can play most types of guitars at this point. I found this app a few months into playing guitar, and I have used it consistently since then. This app is really great, no matter your skill level. It has thousands of songs, and has chords as well as tabs for ukulele, bass guitar, as well as acoustic. You can submit your very own tabs/chords for any song you want, and people will be able to see it and use it for their own personal enjoyment. There are so many fantastic aspects of this app, and I definitely recommend it to any ukulele or guitar player who want to be able to play their favorite songs!
Back to loving this app 5/5
This is mainly for the developers, after the issues of the freezing taps and scrolls. I am so happy to see the issue is resolved and have returned my 5 Star review of your amazing tool.
Please accept my apologies and gratitude for the aggravation I used in my previous review. I honestly love this app and it has truly helped me grow from an novice guitar player to an intermediate, and I know it’s all thanks to this app.
You guys rock!
The last stop 5/5
These folks have made it possible for me to have tabs anywhere I go for years. After years of broken tab sites I final have a home to always go to for new music and my past favorites. Thanks y’all for your hard work!!
Would definitely recommend this!! 5/5
Ok so I’m not the type of person that writes reviews when they pop up and give you the option for reviews ANYWAY my point is this app is definitely one of the best there is I’m almost 100% sure you’ll LOVE IT
Amazing for ukulele 5/5
Thanks for an awesome resource of thousands and thousands of songs. Almost all of which are set up for a ukulele!! Thanks !!
Good tool 5/5
I enjoy using this app when trying to learn a new song. Good tool to use when trying to transpose songs to different keys.
By Gabba Grief
The best thing about this app is the diversity of songs on here. From punk to hip hop, acoustic versions , and transposed renditions. Even if I can’t find something initially, I can usually check again later and find that someone has posted the song I’ve been waiting to learn. Thanks you guys.
No Paywall! 5/5
By Will Fallon
Nearly creamed my jeans when I installed the latest update. It’s not perfect, but I’m glad now that I never shelled out the extra bucks for the Pro version. Thank you, Ultimate-Guitar. May you have another 20+years to share your experience.
This app is the most helpful to play music with anytime
The most awesome guitar app I’ve ever seen. Has all my favorite music and makes it simple enough where can play it as a beginner. Makes me feel like a rockstar. Awesome , AweSome , AWESOME. I will be upgrading to pro.
Playable Tabs won’t play sound 3/5
By Clarence the African shark
I’ve noticed recently that all my playable tabs are soundless. They play one note and then the rest of it is no sound. Everything else works fine but please fix this in an update
the best app ever! 5/5
The full version is absolutely flawless now with Spotify!
Worth it 5/5
By Ivy Love 95
Pay the $ and use it. Pretty darn cool.
Loved this app. 5/5
This is Great. It could be more better, if everybody could get the genuine chords.
Standard and genuine chords are more useful to beginners.
Hope for the Best.
Blaise is just a beginner but... 4/5
I would like to say I really enjoy the app and it has some amazing features. That being said I think it could differentiate the tabs that have chords from the ones teaching riffs. Another tool that you have is auto scroll. Which is amazing, but beginners such as myself may want to understand it better before investing in the app. So maybe have it available for the first week or so and then have it only in the pro mode. I wrote this review because this is one of the best guitar apps I have come accross. Thank you for your time and I look forward to any new updates that will help me grow as a musician.
Much better now 4/5
My reviews of this app in the past were dry critical. Things have improved. I think there is now a basic free app and to get more features you pay. I think this is better than the old model. My old review:
You advertise in this app waaaay to much. We're tired of being sold stuff. We just get on this app to churn out some dismal chords and have some peace and quiet. BUT WAIT, WE HAVE SOME STUPID PRODUCT WERE GOING TO LET YOU KNOW ABout OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.
you actually have a great app. But you get one star because of your crappy and noisy advertising in an app I paid for. At least make it subtle you hyenas. Fix it I will update.
Such a great resource! 5/5
By CJB in MI
As a novice (hack?) I am so grateful to have an app that helps me find the songs I can play and help me get through them. Keep up the great work!
Self-taught beginner 4/5
I started teaching myself how to play the ukulele about 7 months ago and used to have (no joke) like 80 tabs open on my phone that I would scroll through, many of which were from guitar tabs’ website. I chose it based on its huge selection of songs even for ukuleles (even ones I did not expect them to have), it’s ease of use for a beginner at least, and now I’m trying to teach myself how to actually use tabs! The only thing that would have given it a 5 star rating for me is really on my end, I didn’t feel I am experienced enough to know what an actual 5 Star guitar tabs app would look like but I’ve read some great reviews on this one and have no complaints.
By Grace Lit
This app has songs on here that no one else does. It is good for all genres of music, and I use it for everything! Very much so worth the purchase if you practice music a lot.
Beyond worth it if you play regularly. 5/5
By Hepcat B
Functions much better than free online, great that you can make lists, favorites (saved in the preferred transpose key) and even edit charts and save for yourself. Great.
By homer gomez
It was five stars 1/5
Until recently. Now my saved tabs won’t load properly. I’ve updated it. I’ve logged out and back in. I’ve restarted phone and app. This makes sad and frustrated.
This app rocks!
Love in the Christian and country lessons finally Playing the guitar, God is good.
Worth every penny 5/5
By The Complete Percussionist
Great for chords. A little glitchy sometimes but still, worth every penny.
Guitar tabs 5/5
This app is great. It has simple chords that match the song perfectly, best guitar app ever
By Fynbos scuff
Had it for years on my laptop and phone. Love it! A must have!
Very very happy with this 5/5
I’ve been using this app since I started playing guitar and it’s only gotten better. The pro tabs are great but the community mandated ones are plentiful and usually correct. There’s barely a song I can’t find on here. The creators are also super responsive, both of the recommendations I suggested were put into place within a month. Kudos to you guys, this app is great!
Greatest Tab App ever 5/5
By John Hurbon
Learning is fun and easy.
All the tabs, all the time. Top notch!
Great app for any person who knows how to read tabs. Well worth the membership! 5/5
As the title says the app itself is great. So many songs to choose from and try to learn. My personal issue is simply not dedicating enough time to practicing which is something I mean to address. Coheed and Cambria songs here I come!!!
P.S. Some instructional videos on learning how to properly learn and practice rhythm would be excellent. That is the one major thing holding me back. My strumming is terrible :( I have focused primarily on lead guitar riffs due to this.
MUST BUY 5/5
By Black Hawks Rule
This app is perfect for guitar players of any skill level. I never have a hard time finding a song and how to play it. There also is almost always an easier version to play. It does cost some money but it is worth it. At Christmas time my family can request any Christmas song and all I have to do is look it up in the tabs database and play away. The tabs data base is huge and is constantly growing. THIS APP IS A MUST BUY FOR GUITAR PLAYERS.
Must have app for musicians ! 5/5
I’m a guitar teacher and a performer. Couldn’t do either without ultimate guitar !
Unnecessary Criticism 5/5
I have been reading some of the comments on just one song so far as to cord composition.
It seems to me based on the comments. Most of the differences are merely a matter of personal preference or skill level.
Most guitar players play for personal pleasure.
We don’t all plan to become concert guitarist. So what does it matter. I love the App very much.
So to all the detractors I say. Let’s be grateful. Enjoy your guitar and shut up.
Love it, but there's room for improvement 5/5
By Bass Witch
I've been using Tabs for just a little over a year, and honestly it's changed the way I play guitar! It's so helpful for finding cords, and tabs, to basically any song you can imagine. The app has recently been updated, and I was given perks that you usually have to pay for completely free of charge because I'm a loyal member. The app has also been more recently updated and now has no bugs! If you're planning on playing acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, or even ukulele you NEED to get this app! Thank you so much to the lovely people that make this app!
Best purchase ever 5/5
This app has been a go to app for me for years. Not only does it give me time to practice and refresh my skills but also to teach guitar and use it as a tool.
ilovethis app 5/5
I am Sincerely thankful for this app
Thanks 2 all the contributors n developers
I have learned many many songs
No fit-to-screen 3/5
I thought this app had fit-to-screen guitar tabs?
Certain tabs are sloppy unless you make the font super small. Bought the subscription because i thought it would fix that. I was wrong. Will cancel subscription after free trial. Its basically the same thing minus the autoscroll. Was really hoping for mobile-friendly tabs
Very misleading 1/5
By Spider guy on the 4S 2012
I've been using their chords from a google search and they kept annoying me with pop ups on how much better the app is.
Finally I decided to download even though I don't have wifi (I had to use data)
FIRST THING I get hit with is an ad.
NEXT I find out it's not free, so I get hit with a subscription and required to add my cc. F*** them. I'll just write the songs out of print them. That helps in memorization anyway.
Great way to learn 5/5
App is great! UG has a massive database of tabs, probably the largest. The ability to slow down and loop sections of tab is absolutely invaluable. I’ve been using UG for quite sometime, the last app was good but this app is better. Only thing I’ve noticed so far, is The metronome. It would be helpful to be able to use the metronome and chord charts at the same time. As it is currently, you can either have metronome playing or read chord charts. I would love it if you guys fixed that. Regardless, i recommend this app to anyone who wants to play music
Love the continued support 5/5
By Ava's PaPa
You can never be perfect, but UG continually addresses hinkey app behavior, and you can't ask for much more than that.
Used to be great 1/5
April 21 2018
The new version is broken. It crushes every single time.
April 19 2018
I used to love this app. I even paid for it and also paid for all the features upgrade. But lately it has been really frustrating with the new update.
1. The auto scroll stop working in landscape mode. If I try using in landscape mode, the lyrics just disappear. This is frustrating especially for mobile users who wants to play along with auto scroll in landscape mode.
2. When using auto scroll in portrait mode and you are in the middle your song, singing along with your guitar and totally into the mood. Just when it reaches around 80% scroll of the lyrics , it will suddenly jump to the start of the page. And of-course that ruins everything. Especially while you are singing in front of people....arghhhhh!!!
This is the first time I am writing a review in App Store, so you can imagine how frustrated I am.
Simple and sweet 5/5
Nice articulation if the riff, great song, well transcribed.
Every Song you Want 5/5
It’s all here. This ain’t no bs app. I’ve been playing guitar for 50 years and this is my go to app for proper chords to all the songs I love. Can’t go wrong.
Check out When the Man Comes Around - Johnny Cash.
Love this 5/5
It has helped me so much keep doing what your doing love you
Best music tab tool I've found 5/5
By Dave 61nRockin
Easy to use for multiple instruments, changing keys, and finding an amazing number of songs!
Plus ukulele chords now available. Helps add to your song list.
