HOW IT WORKS:
1. Pick a key to start playing the track.
2. Tap 'Chords' to see what chords are being played (rhythm)
3. Tap 'Scales' to see the scale charts for that key (lead)
CHANGE THE STYLE AT ANY TIME!
Learn the chord progression for each track, and then jump over to practicing scales. Guess what? There are only 5 'shapes' of a scale to memorize! Once you know them up and down, learn where they start for each key. Soon, you'll be able to solo like a pro. Gain more versatility by playing in different modes.
WHAT IS THE PENTATONIC SCALE?
It simply means 5-note scale. It is widely used in virtually every style of music, and is one of the most important scales a guitarist can learn. There are 5 shapes, or finger patterns, to memorize. These never change; only the starting position changes for each key. Once you learn one key, the rest will come easy!
TIPS FOR THE SCALE CHARTS:
- Black dots are regular notes.
- Red dots are 'root notes'. These are notes of the key you are in.
- Blue dots are 'passing notes'. Including these notes puts you in a Blues mode.

So much less than it should be
I got this app hoping it would help me practice improvising over jazz chord progressions. I found it to be of little value because:
* For jazz, there is only one jam track (yes the description says this, but it's still not enough)
* When the track plays, it doesn't show you where you what chord is currently being played
* The scale presented for jazz is the pentatonic scale, which is a simple scale for the blues, not a common jazz scale to my mind
* There are no additional jazz tracks available for add-on purchase
* The scale modulations provided include only A-B-D-D-E-F-G. What about B flat, which with its two flats is more common than B with its five sharps? E flat? Etc.
* When I talked with Ninebuzz about the limitations, they expressed the opinion that my expectations are not appropriate given how the application is described. They have no plans to improve the application that were related to me.
With some simple changes like the inclusion of just a few more tracks, more representative scales, and a highlight of the current chord during playback, this would be a valuable app. Currently, I find it not to be worth having and it seems Ninebuzz is unlikely to improve it.
What I've always needed!
I've never been more satisfied with an instructional app. It's simple, approachable interface makes interacting to learn more simple and fun.
Most apps require the user spend more time learning to use the app than doing what they're designed to do- somehow Ninebuzz developers have bypassed this typical issue. I've never made more progress learning my scales, and playing leads as quickly; or withas much fun as I have with this simple. Approachable app.
If I had to make any requests; I would dearly love to see a gypsy jazz module, Mali blues, and world/obscure scales.
Gr8app for beginner lead Gs
I'm new to lead guitar. Very new. Played rhythm forever and I love that I can customize my tracks and take it anywhere I go and play behind the cover tracks. Great app. Most of these guitar apps all do the same (limited) thing. This one doesn't. Very simple to use and I can play through my amp
