Useful for soloing


I use the app when I’m playing over a chord progression and want to hit certain notes on the changes. Works well. It would be nice if they added the CAGED positions too.

Developer Response

We're happy you're enjoying it! We're adding each o the individual CAGED positions soon for the scales view.

Nice interface

Nice simple interface for the app. It’s nice having the sounds for each of the notes.

Glad you like it, we're also updating the sounds to make them sound more realistic.
