While we've received alot of great feedback about Guitar Companion, there were some complaints.
"In landscape mode the fretboard is backwards!", people complained.
"What about lefties?", several of you asked.
"How about European notation?"
"This isn't really a teaching app."
We've fixed a lot of these problems. The fretboard now turns the correct way on the iPad landscape. Lefty mode for Lefties. European and Japanese notations.
The "teaching app" part is more difficult. But we have come up with a couple of tools that we'd love you to check out:
* Patterns - learn scales up and down the neck, and cool ways to play them. These are almost like song idea generators. Seriously, randomly switch through a few, and see if you start to hear a song.
* Favorites - create songbooks. Jot down interesting chords (or scales) you're trying to remember.
We've also simplified the pricing. The All Access Pass gives you everything. Ad free, all the skins and beat packs, all the alternate tunings. And in the new Patterns feature, you'll see some "advanced" patterns - these are also included with the All Access Pass. And just think - if we can sell enough of these passes, we can make a living at it, and spend all day thinking about how to make YOU a better Guitar player. It's like... seeing into the future, and being awed at how good a guitar player you've become. In the future, Guitar Companion keeps getting better and better, and you use it, like, all the time. Future You seems really happy. And your future self looks at you through the time portal, and happily shouts "It's worth it! The All Access Pass is totally worth it!"
And like before, there are some other features worth mentioning:
- Huge lists of chords and scales, and a ton of alternate tunings
- Zoom mode. See everything bigger.
- On the neck, display notes, intervals, finger positions
- Metronome and drum beats. Accompany thyself. (Beats go great with Patterns, by the way!)
- Manually strum the chords (and now scales), and hear how it's supposed to sound
- Skins. Several flavorful colors to choose from
- Tuner pegs. Simple. Effective. Within the mathematical reaches of our programmer.
Thanks for checking us out! We would love to hear what you think of Guitar Companion, and things you need that would make you a better Guitar Player.

Great tool for beginner Guitar and Ukulele player
Would give it 5 stars if you can fix the alternate ADGCEA tuning you call “baritone” in your App which is not linear so it can be effectively be used for the guitalele. The C jumps one octave higher while the other notes are a properly ascending. Or maybe add an alternate tuning for the gutarlele/ guilele which are becoming more and more popular now. I upgraded to “all access” on both the guitar and ukulele apps.
These are really amazing apps and potentially the only one needs for the guitar or ukulele with the built in tuners, chord and scale charts, a decent metronome with rhythm patterns.
Infinaut’s fix please!
So far I’ve found the d7 and bm are missing a note at the top of the neck and when I display all cord notes in settings there is a floating ghost note or two to the left of the headstock.
This app is really awesome for learning guitar, really brilliant but needs a small update.
For A 1.0 Version , it achieves primal goals
This is a great companion because it gives one an overview of a few scales and harmonies creates good sound. Theoretically, I am hearing some chords that are not are off tune making it sound monotone.
Maybe a few more research about various harmonic theories and finding the best among them , then condensing them into a more graphic or colorful array will create a more harmonic effect. As sound, light & color all work together creating a better sound.
Virtually, this is my favorite among all music applications I downloaded. The monotone of it's scales and color create a very subtle effect that can make anybody good sounding.
I would like to see or create an application like this as well & collaborate. Very motivating. Looking forward for an update,
Keep on inventing!
