By Fonexsis

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Quartal harmony is a special kind of chords, which consist of intervals of the perfect fourth (P4), diminished fourth (d4) and augmented fourth (A4, tritone). Such famous world classic composers as A. Schoenberg, Bela Bartok, M. Mussorgsky, J. Sibelius and others have featured quartal harmonies in their work. Today many of serious musicians, such as John Scofield, Chick Corea, Scott Henderson, Herbie Hancock, Mick Goodrick etc., are also using quartal harmonies in their compositions. This list can be appended with genius saxophonists John Coltrane and Michael Brecker.

With Quartal Harmony Guitar HD app you will be able to bring original mood and exotic sounding into your music, as well as to play your improvisations over these functions. This app will become a great professional tool not only for beginner solo guitarists and accompanists, but also for professional composers and teachers of music theory.
