Thank you for your great work

Useful tool for all musos from beginner to pro. Will save you lots of money on buying(and carrying!) real books, especially if you play different instruments and require transposing.
I realise your charts are written according to theory, but it’s be great if you gave users a choice of replacing an “awkward” looking chords like C#(change to Db) andG#( to Ab) as well as D# E# and B#. It’s just easier to read. At the moment I have no choice and when I try to edit exercises, they go out of alignment. I will post my other suggestions to you, but give you 5 stars because I like using the app in general. Thank you!

I never leave home without it

Even when I go fishing! It’s a wonderful resource. I’ve been using it since the start, and it keeps getting better. Great to have sets of playlists for different musicians I work with and love the transposing feature when a singer turns up. So many educational features which I wish I had had when I was getting started. A good community of users to turn to when you have questions too.

Long time user - keeps getting better

I use this every day. It’s flexible and there’s a lot of depth to explore, but as a practice tool, its simplicity is the key — more time practicing, less time mucking around with an over-complicated programme. If you don’t have 24/7 access to a rhythm section, this is the next best thing.
