What's New in Version 1.1.2
Over 25 new tunings and instruments!
Last instrument selection preserved over restart.
Lacks a couple things!
Nice Layout, When the instrument you want is present and CORRECT then the note-names and locations are accurate. For scales, groups of notes are not delimited in the way a scale book would use, that is, this program shows every note on a given fingerboard at once and leaves it to the player to figure out groupings and fingerings. The two aspects I downloaded the app for are missing or are unusable due to errors. #1: There is no guitar tuned to DADGAD. #2: The 5-string banjo is so wrong as to be mostly useless. All strings are the same length and the tuning is inverted! I tried a workaround by choosing "Lefty" mode, but the string thicknesses are still wrong and the 5th string displays incorrect pitches since in real life this string begins at the 5th fret! Turon: please consult a banjo player and work out this part of the app! When I tried to submit a comment in "support" (3 times), I wasn't able to do so, hence the review here.
