    I use the Yousician app for music lessons. There’s a free version, which so far has taught me most of what I know to play on guitar. You’re limited to 10 minutes of lessons per day on the free version, but until recently the ‘practice mode’ didn’t count towards those 10 minutes.

    So I could happily spend an hour and a half on Sunday trying to play the song for that week.

    No longer. After the latest update practice mode counts towards the time spent on the app, and the free version shuts itself down after 10 minutes.

    Oh well, it was nice while it lasted. Now I will have to either practice much more often for shorter amounts of time, or pony up for the subscription... :(

    Sign up for a free trial with Fender Play. When it’s close to running out, they’ll send you a notice about renewing. When you don’t renew, they’ll send you promo codes, first for 50% off, and then even for 75% off.

    I know Fender Play doesn’t compare well to others like Jamplay or Guitar Tricks, but after the promo, for $25 for the year, you can’t go wrong.

    @Malurkey You have used the service and apparently benefited from it. Pony up the Euros and get a subscription.
