Finally... one I use as a newbie.

I may not be totally using this app "correctly"... but it works for me. I started using it to show chord progressions I can practice. I can do it In every key for both major and minor... and # or b. For different progressions. You can practice without this app.... but is nice to have a tool to help you help learn transitions between chords. While maintaining a consistent strum of my choice. Very useful. This tool is probably not as fancy as some other things... but sometimes you don't want fancy. You want easy. Originally I thought I wanted this app to have fancier strumming... but now I don't. I like the once at each change... and remaining easy. Although it would nice to have an option to have it show all barre... versus easiest fingering. Or maybe have it let you choose entire alternative fingering for any chord.

The update is mint. Thank you.

... Always hesitate to update things because I'm a true American (skeptical). So I just got around to hitting update and thank goodness I did. The layout and chord sounds are so simple and easy to navigate on the app. The songs write themselves as they always do but now it's so much easier since I found this app; you guys at AutoChords kickass. It's a tease looking at the PRO titles, I'm sure to upgrade someday with what technology has done for opening doors, so eventually I'll check out the pricing. So hey, thanks! And if you all want me to rock any hats or shwag of yours I'll do at my 7-9 gigs a month you have made so much better to perform at. See you all at the top. #AdamUp #AdamUpMusic

Solid! Helpful.

This app shows you in the most simple way what Chords you can use in any given key. Major and minor, which I really dig. However, the chords are not complete and I feel a section with intermediate chords should be added. You wouldn't want to teach someone that the 5 chord in C maj was a straight G maj. And that the 7th chord is just a B...doesn't say maj or min, in fact it's a diminished. It's right in the last slider but in the progressions it's listed as a "Bb" and the fretboard shows a major chord...amirite? Looking forward to dev!
