What's New in Version 1.3.1
ScaleViz Shape Trainer, now includes a metronome, ScaleViz can now help improve your speed, just start of at a comfortable pace and work your way up.
Just choose your shape & set your tempo anywhere between 40-240 Bpm and practice away. (Default tempo is 90 Bpm and goes up and down in 5 Bpm increments).
Browse shape buttons, re-coded as requested by one of our very first customers "Rodney Stewart", and also suggested by my son Tony Hogan, Chord now goes to Chord, Arpeggio to Arpeggio, Pentatonic to Pentatonic & Modal goes to Modal. This is a Massive Improvement and makes ScaleViz even more intuitive.
Shape trainer interface re-designed, button bar is now at the bottom of the screen making the shape trainer even easier to navigate.
Help screen updated to include metronome help, interface display info and is now spread over four screens (touch to start and stop the screen you want to read).
Exactly what I was looking for . . .
complimentary to Guitarist's Guide to Scales Over Chords, builds on theory. Looks like this will really solidify this knowledge. Well made app!
Good but not complete
In that I cannot get the chord viz portion of the app to open on iPhone 4.... It shows it @ start up, but will not allow me to open that portion of the program.
If I could access that, would likely score a 5 :(
Just what I was looking for!!!
This is the best app
To learn the caged system to really apply it on the guitar.
