Awesome - just what I needed
There is no other app out there that does what this app does. I am learning how to play different positions on harmonica and this app shows me exactly which key, which harp and which notes for a variety of scales. This is not one of those hold it up to your mouth and pretend to play harmonica on your iPhone apps. This is a serious app for all those who really want to play harp. Not a toy. I down load lots of apps bit rarely feel impelled to review. This app was getting low ratings from people who do not understand what this app is all about. If you are serious about learning harmonica and want an app that dives into scales, positions and keys this is it! Thank you to the maker, you've put a lot of effort into this and I for one want to sincerely thank you! You've helped my harp playing way more than you could imagine. Keep up the good work.
