The Guitar Note Trainer is an app to help you learn the notes on the guitar neck - one of the most essential skills for progressing guitarists!

It has four training modes, Name The Note where you have to name the note shown on the neck, Find A Note where you have to find a given note on the neck in all 6 positions, Memory Quiz 1 where you have to name a note having been given it's position, and Memory Quiz 2 where you must name all the notes across a given fret (a tough one!!).

There are some "Easy" options for those just starting out to limit your range of answers.

You also have an audio option to hear the notes as you select them!

If you really need to cheat you can swipe your finger diagonally across the fretboard and all the notes will show for a second :)

I'm sure you'll find this app very helpful, all you need to add is practice time!

Best wishes, Justin

Great start - few bugs


When I saw a Justin Sandercoe App, I knew it was going to be good. In 10 minutes the Octaves Method stuck in my head better than in the previous 3 weeks. Perfect for where I am on Justin's intermediate method.
There are a few bugs. Adjusting the volume is kludgy. Using the buttons on the iPad you could only adjust the volume when a note was playing, otherwise it was just adjusting the sound effects. Similar effect on the iPhone 5. When a note wasn't actively ringing out, the buttons defaulted to the ringer. A few times the sound cut off entirely on the iPhone.
I haven't tried the Memory Quiz options yet, but it is already worth more than the purchase price.

Great App, but...


I am new to music theory, and I wish there was an option for natural notes only. It's a little overwhelming for me with all those sharps and flats.

Also, it would be great to be able to reset the percentage of notes named without exiting the app.

That said, the quality of this app made me purchase his other two apps, too. Great stuff.

It's ok.


It could use a lot of work. Sometimes I have to tap the notes several times before it will actually register. The way you want to practice should be customizable as well. I would like to be able to practice notes on each string individually and it would've been useful to have that option. It's still not the worst, but not worth paying for.
