Pretty good

Just got it. I am still checking it out. It looks like it's gonna be very useful. I'm not sure about the chord configuration yet. It has a lot of options though. I like how you can click on the chords, scales etc. to isolate or change or lookup. It would be nice to get examples of chords on a chord grid. I have a pretty good knowledge of chords, jazz chords included, just not very certain how to read all the chords, I understand fretboard visualization seeing different patterns in that point it gets five stars. Definitely worth the money.

Hoping for left handed version soon.

Finally a chord/scale chart that mirrors the charts I made, and still use, many years ago on graph paper. I was hoping it had a left handed conversion, maybe soon. Very good though, easy to read, all inversions shown on the fretboard at once, just like my paper charts. Nice job!

A few easy tweaks could make it great

Maybe separate drop down menus for chords and scales/modes?

Also, whole-step down standard tuning for the different instrument configurations, ex. D Standard for 6 string and A Standard for 7 string would be useful, as they are commonly used.
