      "Guitar chords and tabs was a pretty decent resource for learning some guitar chords. The chord diagrams were useful, and I liked that there were different variations for each chord. I also liked that it has offline access and autoscroll. There's a transposing tool as well. Good for learning, and also good as a quick reference whenever you need it."

      "This is great. I dont think most understand how truly irritating it can be when trying to play a song and having to stop continuously to scroll further in the song to keep up with the chords. The auto-scroll function has been the biggest game changer for me. I also enjoy the catalog of songs which is quite extensive."

Its also free, which is a HUGE bonus for someone who is just starting out like myself."

      "Man, I would have done ANYTHING to have this when I was a kid trying (and mostly failing) to play guitar. No more searching all over the world for sheet music--this site actually LISTENS to the song you want to learn to play and tells you the chords for guitar, piano, or ukelele. (Ukelele? Really?)"

      "You might be able to use Riffstation to learn your guitar chords but I think there are better options out there. The interface is a little clunky and it froze a couple times while I was using it. It is a good idea but poorly implemented."

      "If you learn better through a tab instead of sheet music, this website is the go to for you. They have pretty much any song you can think of and personally, I love using this website as a place to look for my tabs. It is much easier than just googling and trying to find a random one that works for me. If you love tabs, you'll love this website period."

      "Guitar Tab Universe appears to be a good site if you want a variety of chords but it doesn't tell you much how to use them. A beginner might be baffled when he or she gets there as there seems to be no instructions at all. Probably good for the expert, but novices may want to check somewhere else."

      "Guitarist Source isn't bad. There is a lot of information there as well as lessons. It may work for some people but I need something a little more structured and sequential. And it's just a minor pet peeve but Guitarist Source looks and responds like it was made 20 years ago and not updated. A minor quibble."
