Ratings and Reviews
My most used music app!
I have bought well over 30 musician apps to help me become a better musician but this one is my most used app. I use it every day!! Sure it has chord look ups and cool features, but my biggest use case is to use it for live setlists. If you are playing live at a gig, it’s helpful to have your list of songs with their chords and lyrics. This app makes that so easy to do! Just import a regular chord text file and it recognizes which parts are chords and which parts are lyrics. You can then group and reorder all your songs into set lists. What is really cool over other set list apps is the fact that you can customize a chord to the specific one you play and with an easy replace function it allows you to apply your special chord to the entire song!
It even has an auto scroll function plus a way to associate the song with an Audio track so you can play along with your own backing track.
This app is so powerful, the only downside I see is that it has a steep learning curve and I which there were better tutorials to help people learn what took me a little while to pick up!
This app is the best for so many reasons
The first thing that turned me onto this app is when I saw a Sweetwater music demonstration and I saw that you could do a reverse chord & scale search. That is invaluable for those of us who don’t have perfect knowledge of theory or have every chord and scale memorized. It is so immensely helpful when I write a riff (sometimes it’s some crazy jagged odd notes I add in for a color) and I can enter the notes into this app and have it not only tell me what scale it is but also easily see all the other notes connected across the neck. That’s not even really scratching the surface here though. You can also add extra strings to your virtual guitar so regardless of what tuning or how many strings you have (Bass/ or Guitar)it will accommodate you. You can view the notes across the piano or a guitar neck as well. I’m sure other reviewer‘s have more in depth reviews, but those are the things that were the dealbreaker for me and I wouldn’t wanna have to be without this application. Thank you to the developer😉🤜🏻🤛🏻
Best I’ve found so far
This app works extremely well for what I need. I type out the lyrics of a song I wish to learn, then add the chords. The track I am learning from can be included and played right in the app, which is a big help in transcribing the lyrics and getting all the chord changes in the right places. There are fields to enter info like title and composer, etc. Then as I work on learning to do the song, it can be transposed if I need to fit better into my vocal range (or to accommodate my collaborator). There are more cool features that I don’t use right now, but I’m glad to know they are there when I get ready to learn more. I highly recommend this app for anyone who wants to learn and share songs. My thanks to the dev for making this app and keeping it up to date. Bravo!!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
