Customer Reviews

Exactly what I needed!!

I was looking for an app that could tell me what chords I was coming up with on guitar, and to help me remember other more standard chords. Click the tab into the grid and there it is! This is such a clean and useful app! I am extremely pleased.

Great reverse chord finder!

My Operating System and computer:
Mac OS 10.10.5 Yosemite on a Mac Mini from 2009

This software does EXACTLY what I needed, which is to look up chords by inputting the dots on the fretboard all the way up to the 24th fret. It works like a charm! As a bonus I should say that I like the sound of the guitar that plays the chords/notes a lot. It sounds more realistic than simply midi "pling plong” sounds that a lot of apps use.

All in all a perfect $2 transaction.
