It's a crisp mountain morning. The sun is beginning to shine, and the birds are beginning to chirp. Over the crystal sounds of a river running through the mountain, the twang of a Banjo fills the air!
What's New in Version 3.2.0
Zoom in for bigger iPhone view! Chords and Scales much easier to view!
Some nice features, BUT.....
This app has some nice features and an attractive UI but falls short in a couple of areas. Mainly, and for me this is a biggie, there are no fret numbers. When it displays a chord diagram. You have to physically count the frets on the neck diagram. Was the root note on the 8th fret or was it the 9th? Does your pinkie go on the 11th or 12th...Let me count again. Very impractical at a jam or rehearsal and you need to find a D6/9 or Cmaj7 or a G#dim quickly.
Showing the whole neck on the screen is nice but makes the chord diagrams and the dots with the intervals/notes VERY small. It might be more practical to only show half the neck at a time making all the diagrams twice as large.
Good chord and position tutor. Metronome is a great addition. The free version will cover you for chords/backup on bluegrass standards. The All Tunings in-app purchase is a must-have for usability in old-time tune exploration--good coverage of most! No capo capability for tunings, so it falls down on the chord tutoring there.
Has more than 1st meets the eye!
I finally found the other tunings. Press on the letters that say Standard Tuning and tons of others come up. $.99 cents for each or 3.99 buys them all. I only bought the standard C tuning because its the only other one I use. Nice app once you get the hang of it.
