Bigger Chicken

This is superb piece of software at an incredibly reasonable price. I use it daily. My improvisational skills have grown because of it. That’s not just my judgment. The people I play with want to know what I’m taking. I tell them iRealPro in daily doses. My interactions with customer support are among the best I have ever experienced. My contact is with someone called Niki. I don’t know if Niki is male, female or robot. But, boy, is Niki helpful! If you want to be a better player, I can think of no better place to start.

New Useer


I found the software a little hard to understand. And I was disappointed that you can download blues songs, but you cannot play them to a blues even though they are shown to be blues. You are required to use a jazz tempo or purchase the blues backing as an extra. That was not expected before purchase. Also, the purchase of the blues ability was not explained in the software. If you are into jazz, this may help you loads. Any other type music…….well good luck.

Developer Response

The app comes with 50 styles (jazz, latin and pop styles) and we will be adding different style packs in the future. Blues is one of them with 12 distinct blues styles and I'm sure you can find a style to play a song without purchasing the blues pack ;)
The Blues style is available in the app under More/Store.

Very pleased with this app!


I have been playing the guitar and flute for 5 and 2 years respectively. My guitar teacher put me onto this app. I am very happy with being able to create my own songs. These help with all types of improvisation and jazz study. I highly recommend this app to any musician who wants to branch out and do their own work, or play songs from others.
