The Guitar Tunes App

A Simple Solution

Guitar Tunes is an app for your mobile device. It connects to your Fretlight via Bluetooth, just like a wireless headset.
We created a completely new way to learn your favorite songs and improve your guitar playing skills.
A virtual fretboard displays real-time fingering positions for every guitar part while you're listening to the song.
You also have access to video lessons and an extensive free chord & scale library. And of course, it lights your Fretlight guitar.

Video Instruction at its Best

In addition to songs, you’ll find an extensive library of Fretlight video lessons, Hal Leonard video lessons and Quick Lick video lessons. Every video includes professional instruction, and best of all; fingering positions for everything you see a teacher play is instantly displayed on the Virtual Fretboard and your Fretlight guitar.

You also have tempo and looping controls, as well as the ability to step through those difficult leads one note at a time so you can learn at your own pace.

Extensive Chord & Scale Library

If you're already a player looking to improve your lead and rhythm skills, Guitar Tunes has a variety of progressions we call Jam Alongs. Jam Alongs come in differnt musical styles.

Guitar Tunes suggest several scales for you to use to improvise over the solo. They already in the correct key so just start playing. Or you can also choose from other more advanced scales. And if that's not enough, Guitar Tunes even gives you the chords for the progression as well as inversions of those chords (another set of chords most likely higher up on the neck), as well as allowing you to light up the chord tones on the entire neck as they change throughout the song.



Apple iPhone or iPad, Generation 3 or greater (Bluetooth 4.0 or greater)

UPDATE 2/1/19: Thanks to one of our great customers they discovered that if you "clear Bluetooth cache in hidden apps" on your Android Mobile device, the Guitar Tunes app for Android and the Fretlight work.

For reference, here is the fix in Android 8.1 (Oreo) -
Go to System Settings > Apps and Notifications > select "See All" > in the top right corner select "Show System" > Bluetooth > Storage > Clear Cache


Instructions for an LG Stylo 4 with Android 8.1.0, and Bluetooth 4.2

- Download Guitar Tunes from the app store.
- If your "location" is not set to "on" in your Android's settings you must do so. This is important.
- Next, make sure your Bluetooth is "on".
- At this point do not connect/pair your Fretlight to your Android's Bluetooth manually by going into the Android's Bluetooth settings as you usually would do to pair a device. If you have already paired your Fretlight just unpaired it in the Bluetooth settings and clear your Fretlight by holding down the Fretlight button till all the lights on the neck light up.
- Next open Guitar Tunes and when you work your way to a page that has the fretboard displayed. There also should be a Bluetooth icon on that page.
- Press the Bluetooth icon. It may ask for permission to access your location, select "ok".
- Next, quickly press the button once on the Fretlight and Guitar Tunes should see the Fretlight. Click on "name your guitar" and name it. - - The Fretlight guitar should be paired and ready to light up.
