Support for Major, Minor, Melodic Minor, Melodic Major, Whole Tone, Pentatonic Major, Hexatonic Blues (you might call it "Pentatonic Blues", or just "Blues", but there are six notes, so it's "Hexatonic"), Pentatonic Minor, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Locrian, Egyptian, Persian, and Enigmatic scales in all keys.

New go-to app

I hesitated to spend $2 on the premium version but thought to myself, why not, it’s only $2. now that i have it i would easily buy it again for $100. i’m gonna say that one again. i would wholeheartedly be willing to spend $100 on this app if i ever needed to buy it again. this app completely blew my expectations out of the water. everything i need to refer to for notes, scales, modes, and everything in between is found in this app. 15/10 rating. i want to marry the person who made this thing but i am already humbled and intimidated by their intelligence.

Fast references, fast variations, great tool

Ive been using this off and on for close to four years now and is has continued to be helpful from my early stages to my current stage of guitar proficiency.
Reverse chord finder was a great addition when they implemented it some time ago.
If you're passionate about guitar, i suggest a circle of fifths tattoo on your forearm and this app on ur phone. Also tenuto, theory, panotuner, and ScaleBank apps. Tab pro is also good for learning covers.
Keep learning and find enjoyment from the simple lessons!


Play Along Update Is Amazing.

I always wanted a way to practice a scale with a sample track, and this lasted update has that! I’m learning scale more quickly and I’m have fun while doing so. There are so many styles like, Jazz, blues, and rock samples to play along with. And you can also request a track. I have tried this option yet. This is definitely worth the in-app purchase.
