Our Reverse Chord Finder has been completely rebuilt on top of ChordBank's canonical theory library. Tap the fretboard to lock in the chord you're playing on your real guitar. ChordBank will search thousands of possible chords to tell you what chords those notes make up, even if it's not a perfect match.

We've always had CAGED patterns for scales, but we've added the Three Note per String (3NPS) system popular among more advanced players. Coupled with new scale types like Bebop and new modal scales like Phyrgian Dominan and Lydian Minor, there are thousands of new ways to play scales up and down the neck.

Great but could be better.

My ISSUES with this app are how fixatedand locked in the fretboard it looks on smaller screens like old iPhones and even X size ones. You should have the ability to see all the note son the fretboard and move them freely all the time. Pressing again and again can be annoying. There should be a selecting feature for this or free scrolling

2. The explorer feature is great but it wont let you add the chord to your saved directly making it a hassle!!!!

3. Overall, this app is great. You can find the chords you didn’t know you needed or existed. I hope these two little things get fixed. They are my main issues other than that no crashes or anything much.

I’ve actually used this app for years and finally decided to write a review. I am not even using the most up-to-date version but this app has proven to be amazing time and time again. I was just using the chord finder feature where you can tap on the fretboard and create the chord that you are playing and it will tell you the best options for what it actually is.
You’ve got all the scales and modes and backing tracks to go along with them. It generally has a great interface and I can’t imagine all the work it took to put this together. It’s been a huge asset for me. Thank you developers!

Great App … but

This app I great especially for beginner and intermediate guitarists. The chord library is extensive and covers the entire fretboard. I haven’t used the scales or other features as yet.
My only concern is cost. If there were a one time cost that’s reasonable I would pay it. I won’t pay for a subscription because there’s so much I wouldn’t use. I might use the scales, but I don’t need to pay for backing tracks, games, lessons and reverse chord finder. Chords and maybe scales for a reasonable one time fee and I’d buy it, but a subscription for $5/ month or even $40 yearly is too much for what I’d use. Kind of sad because it’s a beautiful app. Maybe the developer will reconsider and offer two different options. I hope so.
