Fret Surfer Guitar Trainer

By Jason Neufeld

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


NOW COMPLETELY FREE! Since I don't have much time to continue to maintain my apps, I've decided to release them for free, no strings attached. Now everyone can have the original fretboard trainer for iOS!

iPad version now available. Just look for 'Fret Surfer HD'!

If you've ever wanted to know every note on your guitar, then this little app is for you. I designed this based on my own need for a good way to solidify my note knowledge, and I believe it will help you gain a master of the fretboard as well.

Fret Surfer works through two game modes: finding a fret when given a note and a string, and finding a note based on a given fret. The game is highly customizable, with options for which notes and strings to quiz, number of questions, and how much time per question. Alternate tunings and left-handed mode are also available. Statistics let you know which areas of the fretboard to focus on to maximize your learning.

Look for the Bass and Mandolin versions of Fret Surfer in the App Store!

What's New in Version 1.9

- Fixed bug in custom games which caused changing setting strings to work incorrectly.

- In Find Fret mode, touches will only register for the proper string, eliminating annoying accidental errors of touching the right fret on the adjacent string.

Customer Reviews

Very helpful. Great learning tool.

I was looking for just such an app to help me learn note locations. This fits the bill. I highly recommend this app if you are trying to learn note locations.

Good on ipad, not on iPhone

Too small of screen for this. Ipad allows all 12 frets on the screen. iPhone only allows 4 or 5 so you have to scroll to get to different parts on the neck. Doesn't work very well. I do recommend it on the ipad though.
