HOW IT WORKS:
1. Pick a key to start playing the track.
2. Tap 'Chords' to see what chords are being played (rhythm)
3. Tap 'Scales' to see the scale charts for that key (lead)

PRACTICE TIPS:
Learn the chord progression for each track, and then jump over to practicing scales. Guess what? There are only 5 'shapes' of the pentatonic scale to memorize! Once you know them up and down, learn where they start for each key. Soon, you'll be able to solo over 99% of the music out there! Gain more versatility by playing in different modes (major/minor/blues major/blues minor) too.

WHAT IS THE PENTATONIC SCALE?
It simply means 5-note scale. It is widely used in virtually every style of music, and is one of the most important scales a guitarist can learn. There are 5 shapes, or finger patterns, to memorize. These never change; only the starting position changes for each key. Once you learn one key, the rest will come easy!

TIPS FOR THE SCALE CHARTS:
- Black dots are regular notes.
- Red dots are 'root notes'. These are notes of the key you are in.
- Blue dots are 'passing notes'. Including these notes puts you in a Blues mode.

The basic acoustic version is ok

Csmart01

All the same tempo and rhythm so it gets boring real fast. I have jam track CD's that have different keys as well as slow blues to a fast ragtime and that keeps things interesting and makes you a better player. This is very one dimensional. Not the best $2 I ever spent. Maybe future updates will mix things up a bit?
Update: now I have banners??? and to remove them I need to "like" ninebuzz on Facebook? Are we in serious? I don't "Facebook" so I guess I'm stuck with banners.
New update: if you just click through that you will like ninebuzz it will remove banners (even without a Facebook account). Solid company, they took then time to discuss their banner philosophy to me by email.

WAS great but no longer

Bonfan

Worked great until last ios update. I emailed support but of course i received no reply. I have waited over 6 weeks for a reply before writing this. I will wait a little linger before putting a review on the other apps. None of them are working. When the app loads and you push play a white square "window" appears. Its just a blank white square and you cant remove it.
I still have them in the phone hoping an update comes along or they reply with a suggestion or two. I did remove and reinstall but to no avail

Great app

This is a great app to have in your kit. It play a strong back track for you to play along with and explore new rhythms. I particularly like the scales!
