Great for learning fretboard

I LOVE this app! It is seriously well designed and breaks learning into bite size pieces with its extensive series of levels.
Unlike things I’ve tried in the past, this app provides a fun and steadily progressive method for learning the fretboard. Plus, it’s the single thing that has made practicing more of a regular thing for me than I’ve done in decades. I really like that you can play guitar with the app and it detects if you played the right note or not. Or if I don’t have my guitar with me, I can still learn and get quizzed by tapping guitar strings on screen.

Great tool

This seems to be the best way to learn the fretboard notes for me. I’ve tried several other ways. But the process was just too boring. And when you are bored, you can’t retain what you are exposed to.

This app listens to the notes played and is very accurate in determining what note is being picked on what string. And if you do not have a guitar with you, you can just tap the notes on the virtual keyboard.

This also improves fretting hand accuracy as well as string picking accuracy.

There are many levels. Most of which I have not yet earned.

There is nice feedback to encourage you to keep learning.

EDIT: New feature added: rather than making touchscreen selections, you can now just make selections by hitting a string. Your fingers do not need to leave fretboard!! Awesome!

This works!

Most fun way to learn the fretboard

There are a ton of different apps out there that approach learning the guitar fretboard in the same way. For me, they’re tedious and when it came time to playing in real time, it wasn’t helpful since my recall is slower.

This gamified version of guitar fretboard learning turns the pressure up to learn, while making it fun and engaging. I end up playing until I saturate, then come back the next day to continue earning stars and unlocking upgrades.

Brilliantly well done.

To the developer: Thank you for making this! It’s a well conceived gamification system! There’s a small bug in the version I’m on as I submit this review. Hitting “replay” on the 5x level after failing the level takes me back to main menu. This was working yesterday. Thanks!
