Hi everyone. I am getting started with Justin’s system here and so far really like it. I am an older student that has focused on family and work but have always wanted to learn guitar. Finally, I have enough ‘me’ time to actually work on it.
I do have a question. I started the course on my phone with the app. I noticed that the app doesn’t sync with the web site which is fine. But which one should I use? If the Web site is the right place, how do I sync up with the progress I have made on the app?
Thanks for the help, this looks like a really great place!!
Hi Tim and welcome I’m so glad you’re making time for something that’s important to you.
I can’t help you with the app sorry, but there will someone along soon who will help.
I also use the app. The way I understand it is the lessons are the same. The app just has a few more tools.
Welcome aboard Tim! I started the course last October; I use the website for all the lessons and the app for the songs. I found the website to be better equipped, as far as the lessons are concerned (mainly for the notes that accompany the lessons). Good luck and enjoy the journey!
Welcome to the Community, Tim, wonderful to be pursuing the dream and you’ll make it a reality following Justin’s programmes.
I’ve never used the app but believe the lessons are the same. The app only includes grade 1 and 2 at this stage, so when you get to that point you’ll have to switch to the website (maybe that’ll change in time)
I don’t believe there is any way to sync the two.
Hello Tim and welcome.
I started out on the app but found the website (and books) better for me than the app. I keep the app though just to help Justin out with some £££. Like David has said I don’t think you can sync the two.
Hi Tim and welcome.
Sensible use of “me” time for sure. I am another who does not use that app but as David has said the lessons on the app and website for Grades 1 and 2 are identical. But as I understand they are produces by separate providers and as such not integrated. The website records your progress, so give you continuity post Grade 2 but from what I have heard the app song element is a good way for beginners to learn songs quickly. Whatever you chose, have fun and enjoy.
Welcome Tim. I use the web site for the lessons and I used the app for the song practice. I found the app to be a fun way to work on chord changes and strumming patterns. As I improved I also used it to provide backing for some simple riff practice. The ability to change the speed is particularly helpful when learning a new set of chord changes or strum patterns or applying them to a fast tempo song. About syncing… if you decide to switch to the web site, its fairly easy to manually sync/catch up the web site to match where are in the app.
Enjoy the journey!
This is so the best site for learning the guitar.
I’m having a ball with it, so hope you do to!
I do the same, use the app for songs and the website for the lessons.
Wow! What a great welcome. Thank you so much. I am having a lot of fun with the format and content here.
