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.

Well worth it


Very nice app good polyphonic sound. I really would like to see the ability to change chord and maintain the same position. You can cord out a simple song, however only in first position (Cowboy Chords). If you choose G on the third fret and choose F next it reverts to first position. Fix this you get a 5. Bluwail
Update: you now get a 5 one of best apps in the store! Constant upgrades and attention to suggestions make this my go to Guitar app!
The app is getting better with every iteration!!!
