Fender, the brand known for its guitars, is giving away three months of online lessons through its app, Fender Play. The lessons can be used to learn how to play acoustic and electric guitar, bass or ukulele — and the lessons are all streamed online.

To access the three months of free lessons, Fender is not requiring people sign up for the a full year, nor do users have to enter a credit card number. The company is giving away codes online, and once you've been sent one, you can then download the Fender Play app through Google Play or Apple's App Store. You can also sign up on your computer as well, with lessons playable on a desktop. This trial extends Fender's usual free offer of 14 days, which also typically requires people sign up for an annual plan.

With much of the nation asked to stay indoors because of the coronavirus COVID-19 — and many around the world too — many are looking for ways to expand their usual skillset. Online lessons and classes abound, and for those with access to a string instrument including a guitar, bass or ukulele, the app could be put to use.

Fender actually has a collection of apps designed to help people, even non-musicians, get started playing instruments. That includes Fender Songs, which can turn popular music into chords for easier learning. Song choices on the Fender Play app are varied from Dolly Parton's "Jolene," to Taylor Swift's "Love Story," B.B. King's "Lucille," to The Weeknd's "In The Night."

Fender Play works through video lessons, aimed at both beginners and those with a bit more experience. You can choose from a number of genres including pop, rock and blues — and you can flip around between these. There are five levels, with each broken into about 16 to 21 lessons, enough to easily fill three months time.

The deal is only good for the first 100,00 new subscribers. We just tried it moments ago, and it still works. You will, however, need to create a Fender account to be allowed to access the app.
