HOW IT WORKS:
1. Pick a key to start playing the track.
2. See the scale charts for that key (lead)
3. Tap "Chords" to the what chords are being played (rhythm)
CHANGE THE STYLE AT ANY TIME!
Learn the chord progression for each track, and then jump over to practicing scales. Guess what? There are only 5 'shapes' to the scales to memorize! Once you know them up and down, learn where they start for each key. Soon, you'll be able to solo like a pro. Gain more versatility by playing in different modes.
TIPS FOR THE SCALE CHARTS:
- Black dots are regular notes.
- Red dots are 'root notes'. These are notes of the key you are in.
- Blue dots are 'passing notes'. Including these notes puts you in a Blues mode.

Ratings and Reviews
This is a great app - really useful, but it would be so much better if it had the option to count you in before the music starts. If they add this then they’ll get the 5th star ;-)
Good but couple of things to improve
This is a good basic app for jamming. It has a bunch of backing tracks, one per style, both major and minor pentatonic (Blues, Acoustic Blues, Reggae, Jazz, Rock). And the charts for major and minor pentatonic are very useful and clear.
They should improve this app by:
-Displaying the chords used on the aforementioned chart system. At the moment it just displays the chord names without any indication of how their backing track is playing them on the neck. Would be really easy to implement this I'm sure, with roots marked on the chord shape like in the scale charts. Different ways of playing the basic chords would be even better (no need to turn it into a chord book though).
-Have one or 2 more backing tracks per style. Not many are required, but there should be more time signatures between the styles. Perhaps a slow and a fast option per style, per scale.
-Ability to speed up or slow down the backing tracks slightly would be useful.
Really cant see the point, dont waste your money
