Great Learning Tool


This app has revolutionised how I learn new tunes!

Only let down by the 80’s synth sounds

Good... But sounds need improvement


I'd love to justify paying for the full version of this software, but cannot. As a free viewer, it is a good and useful thing. The key work here is "viewer". As a "player" it is capable and accurate, but the synth sounds are 25 years out of date.

Why can't we load up relevant samples of a decent sounding fiddle, acoustic guitar, banjo etc... It would make the experience better for the user.

In the final analysis, this is an asset to musicians who wish to share tunes together. It could and no doubt will continue to improve, so we should support it.

Really great app. Highly recommend


I highly recommend this to anyone who plays guitar or banjo or whatever. Having this available as an app is great. I've used the pc version for a while but rather not play guitar sat at a desk, so having this on my iPad is perfect. App works great. Getting the files into the app couldn't be easier. Also, the files sizes are really small so it hardly takes up any space.
