Ratings and Reviews
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.
Great Learning Tool
I had this app in my iPhone and really enjoyed it. In order to get more use out of it I downloaded it for my iPad. The bigger screen of the iPad allows me to see the whole fretboard of notes for each of the scales. There are enough scales offered to help a beginner to learn to play with some good soloing skills or to help an advanced player increase their skill set. An advanced player will probably find the backing tracks only to be OK. However for a novice player he/she will find them quite useful. The chord directory and metronome is quite useful as is the tuner. A players skill level will determine the usefulness of these straight forward lessons.
