Limited and pricey
I have purchased some pricey guitar apps, like Guitar Toolkit, which were worth every penny. That said I am disappointed with this app, largely because it seems like a dollar app.
First the audio is pretty bad, using midi type sounds which are not pleasant. Second, for an $8 app, why not allow the user to choose different progressions as well? I knew I was getting 251s, but feel this app should go further with progression numbers you can change as well.
The random feature makes for many bizarre and harsh progressions. I think the dev could have included a "suggested" or "common" voicings option.
Lastly, I would been over the moon, if this app would allow for multiple progressions in different keys, to mimic a song and help a guitarist move between 251 progressions melodically.
I suppose I was expecting a lot more. The app does just what it says, in the most minimal sense, but at a high price.
Matt Demystifies Jazz Guitar
Although I know music, I've only been studying jazz guitar for eight months. Matt Warnock is my teacher. Since he's a musician /and/ a teacher he has a way of demystifying the
music. This app is a further step in his effort to publish all his knowledge about jazz guitar and make the music entirely accessible. Grab this high-quality app.
First, the settings menu says that right hand fretboard is the default, but it's not. That threw me for a loop for a few minutes. Second, a number of the chords shown in the examples are unplayable with normal hands.
I just tried the app again, and the main screen is missing, I can't access the settings.
The tools screen is not intuitive, you have to select the X in order for the playback settings to take effect.
