Fender PlayThe #1 guitar learning platformTRY FOR FREE


Two years after launching in 2017, Fender Play has earned the reputation as the most complete and easiest way to learn guitar, bass and ukulele.

And over that period of time, the Fender Play team has received a wealth of feedback from users who have used the platform to begin and continue their musical journeys.

Taking all of that knowledge into consideration, Fender Play now boasts a brand-new look that streamlines the lesson interface in order to help you realize your goals more efficiently.

“We’ve been listening to thousands of points of feedback and wanted to respond to all of them,” said Fender Play Director of Product Mary Keenan. “The goal is to keep playing, and the best way to do that is to focus on the essentials that will get you to where you want to go in the quickest way possible.”

Simplified 'My Path' Screen Navigation

Right off the bat, users will notice a difference in the “My Path” screen. A navigation bar on the left side of the desktop screen (Fender Play is also available on iPhone, iPad and Android) features red highlighted text, arrows and buttons that will clearly allow you to see where you need to go next.

More Prominent Videos and Tablature

Once you get to a lesson, you’ll be fully immersed, as the buttons and other content are minimized so the video and tablature takes a more prominent role. This ensures that you can focus fully on the Fender Play instructor and the notes they are telling you to play.

Change Your Level, Instrument and Genre on the Fly

You can access the lessons more simply, as well. The sidebar navigation and gear icon on the My Path screen will let you change between levels, instruments (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass or ukulele) and genres (rock, country, pop, folk, blues) with the click of your mouse or touch of your finger.

Clearer Progress Tracking

And finally, Fender Play updated progress tracking, so there will be no doubt as to where you stand inside the platform’s guided curriculum.

When you finish a course, you get a noticeable green check mark indicating your accomplishment, but if you deem a lesson too easy or want more flexibility as to where to start, you can mark it complete by clicking the ellipsis to the right of the screen and move on to another one that interests you.

Fender Play still contains hundreds of song and skill lessons taught by world-class instructors that will get you playing in no time. But the sleek redesign only makes it easier for you to do so!
