Just waisted my money on this. Nothing that I can not do in other free apps

Amazing app but one suggestion

An addition of 7 string guitars would be amazing since there are 5 string basses. Other than that the app is perfect!

Essential Tool

My favorite tool along with Oolimo for songwriting on guitar. This app is very well designed because short of sitting at a piano, this allows you to quickly form voicings and to edit arrangements WITH an easily read piano layout a click away to see the movement of the bassline. Like Oolimo this app excels at teaching and utility. This guy should take a crack at the IRS tax code and see what could be done!

This is amazing

Brilliant and beautiful

Helped me fill in so many gaps in my theory knowledge and then some. As a result, it’s become a studio staple. One ‘quality of life’ feature I would like to see added is the ability to drag and drop chords when in the edit window.

Why was I just charged $24 for a $7 app?!

I purchased this in the App Store and was charged $24 instead of the $7 (already quite pricey) this was advertised for. Please refund me!! Also how is this a $7 app and the pentatonic scale isn’t even included?! Disappointing
By SewaneeRights


Not worth it, app completely unresponsive. Wish I could get my money back.

Great for songwriting

Great app and great for songwriting as well!
By Kari David

Has the potential to be perfect

The only thing I’m missing is an easy inversion control next to the other chord settings
By Auriént

Absolutely Brilliant (two suggestions, though)

Hats off to the developer(s). This app is so well thought out and designed. I’m absolutely in love with it. A great tool for learning, songwriting, and deconstructing popular songs for making your own arrangements. One thing I’d really like to see added is more in depth archive options when you save songs. I’m in the process of building out covers I know and would love the ability to tag songs to a genre, artists, etc. and be able to type in a search bar to jump right to it. It would also be nice to be able to add custom text fields above song parts. If I could just type in the first line of lyrics for versus, choruses, so on that’d be awesome. Then this app will be dang near perfect! 🤙 There are options to export out to PDF lead sheets so you could still use this app as a tool for building a good archive system yourself, but the app design and functionality is so beautiful I don’t wanna leave it.
