You mean LEFTY Bass Guitar!?
Surprisingly, this is exactly the sort of thing I was looking for when I downloaded this app. Not a tutorial, just a layout of a bass guitar neck so I could try out some scales and riffs. BUT... Is it MEANT to be LEFT-HANDED?!? It's as if the bass was strung backwards. A re-examination of the app's icon leads me to that conclusion. They might have SAID something. And in the "Learn Songs" mode it seems to work well enough. HOWEVER... the position markers are on the wrong frets (2-4-6 instead of 3-5-7 etc). It's very badly tuned BETWEEN G and G# on the top string (between E and F on the bottom). I read rumors of a "settings" menu (for transposing or righty/lefty?) but it seems to be covered by an obnoxious and obstinate banner ad along with all the others that pop up constantly. The "Play Bass" mode is even weirder. They reverse the strings(!) but it's still upside down. I can disable my phone's rotation, flip it, and tap only on the upper frets for righty playing, but then there's this horrible latency. I doubt that anyone at On Beat Ltd has ever played a bass guitar. I'm better off with a keyboard app. I'm TRYING to find a reason to like this app, but it's tough.
Sound doesn't work
Whenever I tried to play a song or anything it kept popping up and telling me my sound was off even though it wasn't so I could hear anything when I tried to play.
A different perspective
A solution to the "lefty bass." Turn your phone upside down. 🙌🏻
