Customer Reviews


I've been using this app for around three years now and I still utilize it daily! When I decided to actually start taking guitar playing seriously, with the goal of being able to play and sing songs from start to finish, I knew I'd need a good reference guide for song chords. I tried a couple free apps first before I bought the full version... wasted time. For around twelve bucks, since I wanted all the options at the time, I have a great tool to practice with. Being able to have the lyrics and chords scrolling as the song plays has been so helpful. I went from learning chord shapes to playing and singing confidently on stage with my band. I was just a singer at first... now I'm center stage playing and singing so many of my favorites. Either at home with friends and family or on stage for strangers, I can now fully enjoy sharing music with others and feel like I wrote the songs myself. Thanks for this app!

Overcoming Hurdles

I don’t really have slit of apps that I downloaded and/or use with great frequency, but this app is the exception. I have been playing for the better part of 30 years, & I was getting tired of playing all that I knew and grew up on. Coming from a music family, where you learned by watching and trial and error, the get togetherness where getting few & far between. I was hitting a wall with my abilities.
Once I started using the Internet, I discovered skit of I wanted to play, I already new the chords I just had to change progression and strum patterns.
TABS not only did that, but it also showed me some of the lesser used chords were really not that hard.
I really would say that my library, and the diversity of types of music it literally exploded.
Thumbs Up&

All in one place

I use this app on the fly during rehearsals when someone starts playing a song I don’t have the lyrics or chords to. Not every song though(Ricky Don't Lose That Number, Elenor Rigby) . the heart icon to make it a favorite & it will arrange them all alphabetically.
3. Now you can make playlists/setlists
4. Now you can edit a tab & save it as personal, like change the key or lyrics or form of the song.
It's my go to app for any song I haven't memorized or just need a refresher.
