General | Latest Info

Building on the company's online Fender Play tuition offering, Big F's innovative new App, Fender Songs, allows users to practise, play along with and perform songs on guitar, ukulele or piano. All you need is a subscription to Fender Songs and to Apple Music. Launching today, app is available initially only in the US for iPhone and iPod Touch, though Fender assure US global roll - out is in the works. Fender CEO Andy Mooney told musicradar, Fender Songs is for people who have essentially committed to guitar. It's way to keep them engaged in playing, we believe, that much deeper and much longer in that it gives them the ability to easily and dramatically expand their repertoire. How does it work? Well, App's chord detection algorithm analyse waveform of source audio to provide lyrics and chord boxes to jam along to. We spend little time with App pre - launch, finding it to be a fun, easy way to learn. Chords scroll along in time with music and you can even slow down audio to 50 per cent speed. Easy! Three modes are available: Practice, Play - along and Perform. Start with Practice mode and play at your own pace; move on to Play - along mode to, er, play along with scrolling chords and lyrics; finally, use Perform mode and follow chords and lyrics while even recording yourself. Currently 750 000 Songs are available through Fender Songs, but, as Mooney explains, App will expand to other platforms beyond iOS and will expand into other geographies as we secure licensing rights. That means more songs, Android functionality, other streaming providers and UK / EU rollout soon. Though dates are currently TBC, it ll likely be 2020 before we see it on this side of the pond. Consider the US very excited indeed! Fender Songs App is available for $4. 99 per month or 12 - month subscription for $41. 99 per year exclusively on the App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch.

A new generation of learners

Iconic guitar - maker Fender is hoping to inspire a whole NEW generation of guitar players with NEW Apps that aim to teach instruments by gamifying the learning process. Fender Play is a subscription - base App from a company, available now, that offers lessons for both acoustic and electric guitar. For the time being, App Look to only be available on iOS in the US, though there is a desktop version available that seems to be available in the UK. Users pay $20 month to access a library of lessons, with Fender promising quick wins to promote accomplishment and motivation. Fender research has reportedly shown that keeping NEW players playing beyond first year is incredibly difficult, and it seems Fender Play is part of a push to keep NEW guitarists coming back to the instrument. How does Fender Play hope to compete with vast amounts of free lessons online? Well, instead of focusing on theory or sight reading, App aims to teach by using popular SONGS and high - quality videos. After teaching users basics, such as tuning, App immediately launches into a lesson on how to play specific song. And Fender is hoping its library of hundreds of licensed SONGS will be what keeps people playing, with tracks from artists such as Bon Iver, Rolling Stones, and National including in App. The company has also managed to license SONGS from Disney, and has integrated lessons on technique and theory into each track lesson. As a result, users should get a fairly personalised experience, with the App offering NEW subscribers the option to go down Rock, pop, Country, Blues, or folk route when they first fire it up. Fender Play will also ask you to identify whether youre on acoustic or electric guitar, tailoring subsequent lessons based on these choices. It seems Fender has also paid close attention to production values, offering clear 4K closeups of specific chords and strumming patterns and generally slick instruction videos. What's more, you will be able to TRACK Your PROGRESS with statistics and graphs showing your improvement over time. At time of writing, app does appear to be available on Google Play Store in any country, or App Store in UK - US users can access iOS App right now. However, there is a desktop version of the service, which can be found over at Fenders site, where there is also a 30 - day free trial offer to be had. Let US know if youll be using Fender Play in the comments.
