I think that this is an absolutely fantastic idea for a guitar app, and if it helps provides a slightly less daunting introduction to the world of music to young guitarists then all the better because it will lay down a decent foundation that they can build upon over time

I’m thoroughly impressed with the thought that has gone into this guitar karaoke app, and would definitely like to recommend this iPhone app for learning songs on guitar to any six-string newbies out there who are just getting started in their first year or two of axemanship!

Keep reading our Fourchords app review for more details on all of this app's features.

Add to Your Bag of Tricks

It never ceases to amaze me how much mainstream music, from Rock and Pop to Hip Hop, use the same basic chord progressions over and over again.

Although this lack of creativity and originality in most mainstream music puts me off almost entirely, it definitely makes it easy to learn such songs once you’ve added a few chords to your bag of tricks.

FourChords Guitar Karaoke takes advantage of this by providing a whole repertoire of songs across a variety of genres that you can learn to play with just four chords, and pretty basic ones at that.

The chords and song lyrics are presented in a format similar to what you would expect from a karaoke session, and you can even record your performances and play them back to track your playing progress over time. It's easily one of the best guitar karaoke apps I have ever seen.

Learn From Justin Guitar

There’s a very smart dude called Justin Guitar who features in videos scattered throughout the app. These videos are designed to provide some background information for the songs and help you to transition between chords a little more fluidly.
