Best app I have ever used
As a professional saxophonist and instrumental teacher I use this everyday to accompany myself, and as a teaching tool with my students. I also use it in place of all my fake books on gigs. The ease of transposition is invaluable. I can read the correct changes for any song on alto sax, tenor sax, c flute, f alto flute and accompany singers an any key they might like without having to transpose in my head! The ease of writing out the chord changes to original material written by me or others is incredibly useful. It's value increases with every new feel that is released. No professional musician should be without this app. Well worth every cent I have spent on it.
At first I thought the price was too much, I was like "13 bucks for this??" But once I got it I started working with it, downloaded some songs, made a chord progression of my own and boom I started to practice with the app. It's a super amazing app and it was so worth it. I haven't been playing guitar for too long and am relatively new when it comes to improvising but this made it so much easier since I can actually heart the progression and was able to get the hang of it. This app is great and I recommend everyone who can or wants to practice improvising
Best backing track/learning tool app
Best backing track and learning tool app available! I use this on a daily basis to get my jazz guitar soloing and comping chops practice in. I've also recorded with it, it's a great app. Tweakability is endless. Backing instruments sound great also.
Tech support is also very responsive, friendly and quick. Best app all around actually in many respects, not just in the music department. Get it!!!
