GUITAR LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS AND PROS
You don't need to read music to learn guitar with Fretello – our app teaches beginners using simple tabs and chord patterns so you can pick up the basics quickly. Advanced players benefit from individual practice sessions and exercises designed specifically for them.

LEARN THE SONGS YOU LOVE
Our new Song Trainer teaches you to play your favourite songs. We've teamed up with a major publisher to provide official song sheets from some of the world's biggest bands and solo artists. Each song is broken down into short sections to make learning easier. Once you've mastered each sequence, you'll stitch them together to play the full song.

15,000+ PRACTICE SESSIONS
With more than 15,000 exercises to choose from, Fretello lets you learn guitar at your own pace with simple, personalised, step-by-step practice sessions.

5,000+ BACKING TRACKS
Once you've mastered the basics in your easy-to-follow practice routines, use everything you've learned to jam along to more than 5,000 pop, rock, blues, acoustic and heavy metal backing tracks

MASTER DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES
Fretello teaches you different playing techniques – including legato, alternate picking and economy picking – so you can become the guitar player you've always wanted to be.

TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
The Fretello app is your own virtual guitar teacher, keeping track of every practice session, exercise and achievement. We'll be right there with you on your journey from beginner to pro!
