Better than expected


True it’s a bit pixilated, but who cares when you’re looking for a playable chord in a particular position. I’d been looking for weeks for such a usuable chord in a difficult spot for a jazz standard solo. Opened the program, entered the chord, clicked on the fret I needed—presto!—I was able to add another composition to my repertoire. When you don’t have time to try every conceivable combination of the notes of a chord you need, this app will do the job for you. Worth the five-buck price (regardless of somewhat poor pixelation) in my book.

Good Idea But Limited Usefulness

A. Coustic

No problem with the graphics. Like the idea of being able to resize and copy and paste to my editor, but cannot edit a chord to add or delete notes to show only the notes to be played. Also, the chord options do not include split chords, which would be a plus. These two improvements would definitely move my rating higher.

Not worth $5


Graphics look really bad and pixelated, interface is not intuitive and there is a bunch of advertising for other apps. To me it’s not worth the $5 I paid for it.
