Good things and value are more rare thru time

Which is why i try to appreciate all that is good while its there like this app. I got nothing bad to say about it . In this era of lessening freedoms and corporate corruption of governing bodies and tyranny that accompanies it where things truly valuable and good are sure to be come less and less available but cost more and more, its things like this app that folks might one day stop and say “hey remember the good old days when it was OK to be free and play guitar and quality was essential ?” Sadly many will surely say “no i wasnt born when people had freedom and quality” . So app maker live long making good quality products you have my respects and best regards . Thanks for this good app, sincerely , and NEVER EVER EVER FORGET WHERE YOU CAME FROM ! From the ground did we emerge from , so into the ground shall we descend back to . We all end up in the same place despite money and worldly status or possessions , for none of that which we call ours truly is ours because it doesnt go with you wherever it is you go when youre gone . It all stays behind where you once were for that fleeting moment somewhere in the continuous infinity .

Credit Where Deserved

I’m not going to lie I was not happy when the latest update rendered the app unusable for old users who purchased the app before it was a subscription service. The developer once aware of the issue was proactive to fix the issue and it now works again as promised. I honestly feel with as much as I’ve paid in monthly subscription fees to use the web browser based version across all platforms that I should at least get to keep the app version that I bought long ago for a one time fee.

The app itself is excellent and a vital teaching tool for me.

Wish we had the option to mute the part we’re practicing

Honestly for a company smart enough to develop an app like this, it somewhat astounds me that they developed the option to mute all other instruments except for the part you’re practicing, without developing the option to mute just yours. What’s in there is useless! How does that help develop your ear at all? The app currently functions somewhat like training wheels on a a bike. You can walk through complex pieces from at variable speeds, while it plays all the instruments for you. But eventually, you need to work on you’re ability to play it alone to maximize your tone; yet you have no way of removing just the instrument you’re playing. It would be great if we could keep the accompanying instruments, the tab, the speed control, but then mute the track it’s showing for the tab. As it stands I’m being forced to mute the phone entirely which is really stupid. I may cancel my subscription over this, because I feel like I’ve hit a plateau with songsterr and there’s better alternatives out there. Vote with your wallet!
