Hi , My name is Mac
Thats my pen name in my work and everybody calls me Mac ( my real name was forgotten long ago )
Im French i m 41 and i m handicaped since an accident 20 years ago
neurological problems due to a head trauma
i hardly go out of my house because of that so i wanted to try something i can do at home like playing the guitar
i already work from home , i m a comic book artist !
so i needed something to change my mind and have some fun
I started playing on Yousician for a year , just as an entertainment
but now i want to get a little more serious so i switched to the justin guitar lessons
20 to 30 minutes each day is my target ( and thats the most i can focus on )
well i hope i ll finally get the justin guitar app to work first XD
Bonjour Mac et bienvenue dans la communauté. And Hi from Normandie (via the UK !).
Justin’s teaching method and structure sound exactly what you need to reach goals.
If you ever need any help here, just ask. Finding your way around may be a little overwhelming to stat with but you’ll soon know where everything is. Best way is to read the topic that are posted and which category they are in, it will help you to know where to look if you have a similar question.
Most of all just have fun and enjoy the ride.
Toby (not my realname, also forgotten by most or never known !!)
i m still trying to understand whats going wrong cause the justin app doesn t recognize any sound coming from my guitar via the focusrite
on yousician it works just fine but not on the justin app and i dont know why
Glad you joined us and want to get a little more serious about your guitar journey. You’re in good company here. Hope someone can help you figure out your app-issue. I’m also not using the app, only the website and courses there.
I also use the app, mostly for the songs.
I also had an issue with the app not correctly counting the changes.
I switched to the websites practice routines and count the changes myself and keep track of them so I can see the stats and improvements.
Bonjour Mac! French was one of three foreign languages I failed to pick up in my studies, just so you know. I don’t know what Yousician is, but if it’s some of your music, leave a link so we can listen!
Hello Mac. Welcome to JustinGuitar and the Community. The Community is large, as is the website. If you need any help with a lesson specific question or with any general guitar learning question then do not hesitate to ask. There are many good folk here who will happily offer help and encouragement to those coming up behind them on Justin’s Beginner Courses. They embody and carry the pay-it-forward ethos we have nurtured for many years in our community. There are many old hands too who have years and (hopefully) a bit of wisdom they can bring as they give their support to those hitting the road blocks - which we all do.
Just ask if you need anything.
Note - every lesson on the App has tje same lesson on the website, and the website lessons have additional written content and sometimes downloadable resources. If you can, use both together.

Bonjour Mac, welcome to the community. I also recommend using both the app and the website. I use both resources. If you set up an account in the Justin Guitar website and log in, the website will track your progress as you watch the lessons. Also each of the website lessons has a discussion link to the community with discussions, questions and answers about that lesson. Very useful. There is also a practice app on the website for beginner lessons and I also like to practice some with the Nitsuj lessons in Grades 1 and 2. The app is somewhat interactive but I have not gotten any interaction with some of the practice elements like Perfect Chord Changes or Scales. I do like playing along with the songs on the app. I hope that guitar brings you joy and much more.
Hi Mac, welcome. Good you found the guitar to change your mind when not at work. Have fun.
I don’t use the app, but it should get your sound from your default mic that in this case should be the Focusrite. I don’t think you should miss any functionality the app can give you. You can try this section to get information on how to obtain technical support for the app and check some of the topics already created.
