YouTube guitar teacher Justin Sandercoe and software development studio Musopia join forces to create a FourChords beginners’ guitar learning app
Musopia and JustinGuitar have announced the launch of a beginners’ guitar learning app – Justin Guitar Beginner Song Course by FourChords. The app combines elements of the FourChords Guitar Karaoke by the mobile app development studio Musopia and the Learning Path from Justin Sandercoe, the popular YouTube guitar teacher described by The Independent as: ‘One of the most influential guitar teachers in history’.
It combines the features of FourChords’ play-along song book with Justin’s Learning Path method’s instructional videos, exercises and a collection of hit songs selected by Justin. Having honed his guitar teaching skills over more than 20 years, Justin has received testimonials from the likes of Steve Vai, Mark Knopfler, Brian May and Tommy Emmanuel. The Justin Guitar Beginner Song Course distills elements of his methodology into an app experience.
“When learning the guitar, it’s really important that it’s fun, and I designed the Learning Path in this app so the student learns just a couple of chords and then puts them to use making music with a backing track – something that most beginners find inspiring and awesome fun,” said Justin. “We can then keep them interested while learning more chords, strumming patterns and skills and the better they get, the more they enjoy it.”
The songs in the Beginners Course collection are displayed in the play-along style developed by FourChords, with adjustable backing tracks and lyrics. They support the players’ learning experience as they progress through the course, teaching how to play hundreds of tunes such as Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix and Wonderwall by Oasis.
