Why Video-Based Content Like Fender Play and Yousician Doesn’t Work

Both Fender Play and Yousician use a video-based teaching methodology. Videos are easy and fun to watch, but they don’t help you play the guitar. If you want to play the guitar, you need to actually play the guitar! Video-based content moves way to fast for beginners trying to build new skills and practice new songs.

Moosiko takes a different approach by telling you exactly how to play and practice, breaking songs down into bite sized, step-by-step pieces. Read all about our proprietary Moosiko Method™.
