What's New in Version 2.21
Fix crash for iOS 7.0.x on 4-inch iPhone and iPod devices
Great Library, Needs More Practice Tools.
First, I'm seeing a lot of one star reviews due to the fact that there is a monthly subscription of five dollars. I've (tried to) navigate other guitar apps and websites, and to be able to find an accurate, well tabbed song without a horrible interface due to intrusive advertising is well worth it. I'm satisfied with the subscription, so long as the app is continuously supported. We'll see if the below is improved on to keep me a customer:
The library is expansive and I've been able to find accurate tabs for pretty much every song I throw at it. The all is simple to navigate and allows you to do what you want without much hassle when t comes to finding, selecting, and playing back a song with various options such as half speed and custom section repeat. The count in option was not well thought out as the count in tempo does not match the song's tempo. The playback speed is limited to full and half speed, so you're limited to practicing at the speed you'd like.
Otherwise, I'd give a definite recommendation to anyone looking for a great and fun practice tool.
Great learning tool
Starting from absolutely nothing, I've learned so much by using this app and its sister website. It's tablature using rhythmic values and each staff line represents a different string. Very easy for beginners to pick up and even seasoned players can learn things too. You can listen to each track, slow down the song, repeat a section for practicing, and a lot more I can't think of. It took a lot of the mystery and mental blockage out of learning the guitar and bass. It's fantastic.
Great go-to rehearsal tool!
As a bass player in two working cover bands, it's great to have a tool like this that not only shows bass lines, but is switchable to guitar lines as well. It gets me on board, and easily gets my guitarist on board too. Plus, with the view switching between "tab" and "chords", you can now see the cadence of the song at a glance, and even follow the words. Forget all these internet tabs put together by some basement-fapping foreign teenager. This app gets it right the first time.
