Learn and look up guitar chords and scales. Play electric and acoustic guitar, right on your iPhone or iPad. Record riffs, and share them with friends.

Full fingerings show you which fingers to put where, with barres clearly labeled to get you up and down the fretboard.

Built-in guitar video lessons help you go from zero to guitar hero, taught by professional musicians.

Know how to play it but not what it's called? Reverse ChordFinder mode lets you tap the fretboard and identify any of the thousands of chords inside of ChordBank®.

Clean, clear interface makes choosing chords a snap.

Full left handed support for all fingerings.

Strum to hear any chord played from gorgeous, crisp audio samples. Sounds great from the iPhone speaker, or headphones to brush up on chords in private.

Many of ChordBank®'s features are free but, for just $4.99 per month, less than even a single set of guitar strings, a ChordBank® Pro subscription provides full access to thousands of chords in all keys, scales and scale patterns, backing tracks, a library of video lessons recorded by professional musicians, and more.

If you decide to purchase a subscription to ChordBank® Pro, an initial payment will be charged to your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of each subscription period, at a rate of $4.99 per month.

You can turn off auto-renewal at any time via your iTunes Account Settings.

Fantastic App!!!

I am enjoying very much learning to play guitar with this great App. Being 64 years old I have started playing guitar with this App with zero knowledge and I can keep going on with the lessons learning at my own pace. I have never felt bored learning with this App and I feel very encouraged to keep learning because I am very surprised seeing my progress a bit at the time.

Good app, well designed, but…

The free version KEEPS asking you for more money. And interrupting you to do it. This is a sure sign of an app that is not designed in the users best interest. In fact it's so irritating, it degrades all the solid design work that obviously went into the interface.

At the moment, for all chord types (which is frankly what most people will need) this costs £9.99. Frankly because this information is freely available via anyone's web browser on their device already, this is overpriced. (Meaning all the chord inversions and shapes.)

It's a shame, because with a different price structuring model (one not interrupting you and trying to charge you an extra one dollar for every new chord type! c,mon, seriously!) they would make a lot more money.

This could be an essential app for every musician, if it wasn't so stupidly priced.

I took the free trial, the first basic beginner lessons were great but after that it’s really hard to understand how to use the app in a progressive way. There’s no order of the classes, and I really don’t understand what the next step are supposed to be. And I can never find my way back to the main page so need to close the app and restart it to get there. I also found at least three classes that had wrong videos - repeated from previous classes. Not sure what kind of app people who gave this 5 stars are using...
