Windows/macOS: Fender’s Riffstation can scan any audio file then help you learn how to play it on your guitar. Once a $35 purchase, it’s now free.
The app scans songs and show you the chords used throughout, complete with finger placement guides. You can even specify capo placement, or switch between open and power chords. It’s not perfect, but it’s a great way to start learning any song on your guitar.
And there’s a lot more to unpack here. You can break down songs into smaller chunks, called riffs, and play them in slow motion loops, giving you time to figure out exactly how to play them. You can even isolate the rhythm from the lead guitar, allowing you to only hear one or the other. Check it out:
