Synner App problems

Hi I am having two issues with the Synner App right now:

1. On my tablet, when I open the app I have the option to Login or Register, if I click login I will always get an "404 this page cannot be found."

Register seems to work fine, but I cannot login as if the link isnt available anymore.

2. I cannot download the app on my phose as the Play Store says: This app isn't available for your device because it was made for an older version of Android.

I dont mind not having the app on my phone but Id love to login on my tablet so I can learn outside of my computer room.

Thank you!!

hello there

Hello everybody!! Im ryuk, a guitarist kinda obvious but yeah, i've started playing guitar 12 years ago but i wasn't really that motivated until 7 years ago, i am 16 years old soon 17, ive been learning by my own until recently because i didnt know my keys nor scales i was just playing by ear or looking at tabs the whole time... yeah that was until recently i learned about the guitar lessons here, since Synyster Gates was the reason why i got motivated at playing guitar, I've decided to start learning here and so far it really helped me alot, im in a band im the lead guitarist and singer im mostly the one who compose, and by ear its really hard to share with my bandmates those riffs and ideas i have, as i had no clue what so ever about the notes i was playing and in what key i was, although im still learning and there's still alot more to learn, just a few lessons really helped me understand more guitar in general, So thank you Synyster and Mr Gates. Sr for helping me get better and learn the scales and keys as i really needed to learn those, but there is still alot of things for me to learn here so i should get back to it :cool:

New to the community

Hey everyone! I've been playing guitar for almost 7 years now, and I am 15 years old. I'm not entirely new here, as I have been learning for a month now, but I thought to finally post something on here. The reason I joined was because my biggest influence was Synyster Gates, but one problem. I had no clue how to play like him. Until I joined this community. Before I joined I had been stuck in a massive plateau not making much progress and being stuck, but that all changed when I joined. I learned more stuff in a week, such as harmonic minor with the modes, melodic minor, the blues scale, the major and minor modes, and more, but not only did I learn to play a style like syn and get better at his style, but it made me a better guitar player in general and more rounded. A couple of months ago I joined my high school jazz band not expecting much, but because the knowledge I learned here made it easier to understand how jazz works and how I can incorporate blues with my playing in the jazz band and at home. So thank you Synyster and Mr Gates. Sr for helping me become a way greater and better guitar player than I had ever imagined becoming.

wassup everybody

I'm Bishop, I guess I'd be considered an intermediate guitarist (3 years). Synyster really inspires me to push myself further on guitar and learn new things. I'm trying to teach myself some music theory even though it's a little annoying. originally, I didn't know that there was lessons on this site so I've been checking them out (y)


My name is Trident, I joined Synner a couple months ago but am just now introducing myself. I’ve been playing guitar since my freshman year of high school and im now 20 years old. I didn’t really take it seriously until my Jr year of high school though. I don’t know much theory or anything but I can play some songs and noodle around. As most of us are here for, im here to improve my guitar playing!


Hi everyone! I'm Ali. I teach music, including beginning guitar, although it's not my main instrument and the course is almost exclusively acoustic and classical. I've played at the beginner and intermediate level for about 20 years, and I'm embarrassed to admit that electric guitar (especially lead) intimidates me to no end. So I'm here to get over that fear in an awesome community.

Guitar 7 string now or later on?

I've been playing guitar since last week, and the strat I have is pretty ok and all but my goal is to be one of those cool prog guys playing really weird and heavy shit on an alien looking extended range guitar. At what stage would it make most sense to actually start playing on a 7 string?

I just learned the second position minor pentatonic shape and I realized I might end up having to re-learn a lot of stuff like that. Conversely if I get it now I won't have the slightest idea what to do with all the extra string.

Is there a best way to get to where I want to be?

HELLWIN, Veteran Got Shot, Anyone got one I can try before I die?

Hey everyone!

I'm a veteran who just got shot defending our rights and way of life, life is short, I've been looking everywhere for a Hellwin Amp for years, I have the cabinets. I would love to play on one before I die... I can fly to you even but I'd feel some serious FOMO if I died before I got to play one. Hell I can pay you even... I've got not much to live for as my dreams been crushed but this would mean the world to me! Please inbox or let me know, all love!

Hello everyone

My name is Randy and I live in Colorado's Roaring Fork Valley between Glenwood Springs and Carbondale. I've been playing for many years, but was just introduced to this site from my sales agent at Sweetwater who listed it as his Favorite Music-Related Website. Looking forward to reviewing some of the lessons and getting involved in the Community.

Thank you so much for the help🙏

Figuring out a guitar part by ear, having trouble

This song has no live recording, music video, guitar tab or guitar cover online, so I've been relying solely on my ear to figure it out.

There's a part that the Guitarist (named you) plays that has completely stumped me. Here's the part for reference:

This guy is also one of the top 10 best guitarists in Japan so I'm not exactly beating myself up for not being able to play it, haha. Can someone help me figure out how he plays this?

A returning synner..


I don’t know if any of you really remember me 😅 It definitely has been a while, 3 years to be exact. I’ve been playing but not very often as life got in the way. I started singing, usually in my car while I’m driving to work because no one can hear me then 😂

Because of the singing I was finally able to learn gunslinger and danger line solos by ear in a martter of hours! I didn’t even have the ability to play those solos couple months ago. So stoked the progress!

Now I’m stuck with the fast part of hail to the king solo. I somewhat got it but not quite there. I feel like there’s maybe something wrong with my technique. ..So I decided to ask for help and any tips from you!

Ps. This forum has changed a lot! So I apologize if I’m doing something wrong here. I feel like I don’t know how to use this forum 😅

Anyways. Here’s the link to my recording: Login to view embedded media

New Guy here.

Hey All. New to the site, been around guitar for a great many years, but consider myself top be a Begintermediate. I have learned tings through the years and have some knowledge, but have not always applied those things to physical playing/technique. There was a time about 35 years ago that I practiced a loy (nearly 8 hours a day) because I wanted to be a pro musician (Steve Lukather was my role model). I was set to audition to study at the Wiscionsin Conservartory of Music Diploma program and 2 weeks before my audition I ran my fretboard hand into a Band Saw blade at work. After that I gave up the idea of playing, I placed my guitar in its case and it was stored for nearly 10 years. I became an Electronics tech. I have buiolt and repaired tube amps, built effects and even tried my hand at building a guitar from scratch, had a nasty skin reaction to the dust from teh Bolivian Rosewood that I was making the neck from and ended up going with maple. Anyway these days I am a Husband and a dad to a kid that lives his life with extreme autism and I don't necessarily have a lot of time for practice, but I know that having a guitar (or 5) in my life makes things better. I currently practice through an all digital rig with a Line 6 Helix Floor and Seymour Duncan Powerstage 700 at its heart. Being as that I was a kid in the 70's and today I listen to bands like AX7 my musical taste varies and covers Classical, Rock, Jazz, Metal, Country, R&B, Varius forms of International Cultural music. Looking foward to taking some information from the site to walk away with and give me something to work on. I guess that is enough about me.
