Rosemarie and Chuck ,

I don’t recommend, bought app, didn’t buy adds!

So I gave this free app a bad review because it came with adds but it was after I purchased Guitar Scales & Chord Power. I didn’t realize the picture in the icons were identical and I was opening the free version with adds. So the developer was kind enough to reach out to me and suggest I delete the free version and how to tell the 2 apps apart. The free app is great to see how it works and play around with but I recommend buying Guitar Scales & Chord Power, I love it. Here is my first review below, my apologies to the developer:

I can’t tolerate buying an app and then to find Google advertisements constantly running only to distract you from what you want to be doing. I can see free apps having advertisements but I didn’t see anywhere when I purchased this app that it came with ADVERTISEMENTS!

My bad!!! It would probably help if the developer changed the picture so it would be easy to differentiate between the 2 the apps. I am super happy I bought the paid app!

Developer Response ,

Sorry you are having problems. There is NOT a paid version of this app only free. If you purchased Guitar Scales & Chords Power it is a separate app (with NO ads) and you will find it on your device with with a different app icon that says Guitar SCP below it. Guitar Scales & Chords Power has all of the features of Guitar Scales Power (Guitar SP) and many more; so you can delete Guitar Scales Power (Guitar SP) from your device. If you are still having problems please contact support from within the app or email so we can help.

I Love This App,

I have spent countless hours searching the web for scale diagrams with the proper fingering and have printed out hundreds of pages of material. It has seriously taking over my practice time. I found this app today just browsing the App Store and I can’t believe it’s been there this whole time. Have only been using a couple hours and feel guilty that I’m not paying for.

I will be purchasing this app by the end of the day! 😍😍😁

Great Application

A very awesome app for guitar players who want to learn more than playing cover songs. This could help you take your playing to the next level learning the various scales.
