    I figured out why I couldn’t log in. I was a beta tester for the fender website and since I signed up for fender play with the same email address with different password it wouldn’t let me sign in with the new one I created for fender play. So for the heck of it I signed in with my beta email and password and I am now in fender play. Suggestion: it would be nice to mention to sign in with fender beta email and password. Also I would be very helpful if fender put a link to support on the app Log in or Sign up page. **New Update 3/9/18 Problems login in with iPhone. I noticed you have to press the email, password & sign in button several time before the insertion point appears. Kind of frustrating. Its not t my iPad Air 2 as all other apps are quick to respond to touch. Also I applaud Fender for putting Rancid’ Fall Back Down in the song sections. However the instructor that teaches the lesson teaches a little fast. I pretty much knew how to play the song but there were a couple of chords I played wrong and I didn’t know them so it was hard to keep up when the instructor rushed through the chords. Also it would be nice if the instructor would announce the parts of the song. I’ve seen some YouTube tutorials by lilttleredguitars2 that are better than this. I can’t wait till they add bass to Fender Play and please add Rancid songs for Bass. Matt Freeman has amazing bass lines. Also please add Social Distortion & Blink 182 songs too.
  • Bunch of whiners!!!

    By olgaki15
    My god people. I was wondering why this fender app was low rating so I decided to read the comments. Geesh! I have never read such a bunch of whiners before. Is anyone here even serious about learning guitar. Don’t rate becuz you cant log in or use your ‘beta’ account,at least you had the privilege to try it before anyone, and usually its not fender directly charging you, im pretty sure the payment goes through apple first. So theres no need to put down a respectable company like fender.To all you’my ipad dont work’ its for the phone and an ipad one being developed so just chill. So can you all just rate the app! Try it then complain if you don’t like it. As for me... i do agree on price range.$20 is a bit steep. $999-$1299 would be better. And i love the app. Its simple to follow and educational. Ive always used fender products down to my pic. Im sure ill get some productive training on here. Good Luck to everyone learning the play. And stop being so grouchy people. Its just an app.

  • Doesn't Work

    By RadioFreePG
    It won't work on my iPad. The Create Account button is dead so I can't even get started. No way to contact support so I came back here to rake the developers over the coals. I think I know what the problem is: Gen 2 iPad with iOS 9.3.5 and it won't go any further. So you want me to go buy a new iPad and forget about that Fender amp I as going to buy? Maybe I'll just buy a VOX and keep the old one. These things last longer than a few years you nunus!
  • Needs landscape mode on iPad

    By Astra020
    It’s a decent app if you’re hoping to learn basics and get into playing songs rather quickly. It is annoying that in iPad it doesn’t work in landscape mode however.
  • Not for me...yet

    By allanhowls
    I’m sure the app is great, but I downloaded it in hopes of having (acoustic) bass tutorials. Since that’s not available, I can’t speak to the overall quality. Any upcoming bass plans, Fender?
  • Teaches parts of real songs

    By Judosanch
    I was using a different app (rhymes with musician) to learn guitar for over a year which is still great for learning chords and scales but doesn’t have music that I’m interested in. Fender Play uses real songs in different genres. I feel like I have reached a new level after 1.5 months with these lessons.
