Learn and look up guitar chords and scales. Play electric and acoustic guitar, right on your iPhone or iPad. Record riffs, and share them with friends.

Full fingerings show you which fingers to put where, with barres clearly labeled to get you up and down the fretboard.

Built-in guitar lessons help you go from zero to guitar hero.

Know how to play it but not what it's called? Reverse ChordFinder mode lets you tap the fretboard and identify any of the thousands of chords inside of ChordBank.

Great app, but could fit the screen better for portrait

iPad 9.7. This app has tons of uses and is well worth the price for the full version. My only pet peeve is the way scales don’t display properly and some of the notes are cut off until you scroll down in portrait. This may be because the same amount of notes display on the landscape mode. Take some hints from how the interface from rock smith works for scale patterns, display it so I can zoom in and out on different sections of the pattern, or view the entire fretboard. The reverse chord finder and genius are helpful for writing. I also like being able to hear every chord and note if I want. Anyways great app and hopefully they can fix the notes disappearing thing.


Best ten dollars I've ever spent

This is probably now one of my favorite apps of all time. It's extremely easy to use and very helpful in finding new chords for beginners. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn the guitar because you will be able to teach yourself a LOT. If you've felt like you've hit a wall with your abilities you'll be able to blast through it and learn so many new things. There is still room for improvement. I would love to see a more intuitive version of the simple chord progression recording ability. I have high hopes for all future updates and this app is seemingly only going to get better.


I love this app

This app is fantastic. I have been using it for years. I love the growth that has come along with the app. It never stops teaching me something new. I catch myself just practicing how chords sound together in my spare time away from a guitar instead of playing games on my phone. You can tell that the makers of this app really love guitar and want anyone who is interested in guitar to be able to play. It really is worth the money to buy the full app. The tutorials and access to several different chords are super helpful.

However I have lost access to the entire app. I have tried restore purchases and it just spins endlessly. I still have ChordBank pro on my iPad, but it’s reverted on my iPhone. Big bummer. It’s such a great tool to just have in my pocket.

Ok, so after a email and a very quick response Chris was able to get my app working correctly for me. Hands down great customer service.
