One of the best sounding guitar apps around — with each single note of the guitar carefully recorded. Highly playable user interface with easy access to hundreds of chords that can be visualized just as they would be played on a real guitar.

With GuitarCapo, playing guitar and learning chords turns into a breeze. With simple clicks you can discover the most unique chords. In addition, you can use the built-in capo to transpose chords — just like on a real guitar! With GuitarCapo however, you are shown the name of the new chords you're playing!

Made with passion and 20 years of guitar experience.

String layout

Excellent sound. I would buy upgrade and give it five stars if the order of strings could be reversed. Playing a real guitar allows the thumb to sweep from low to high strings as it moves away from the body. The only was to achieve this playing this app is to play it upside down - unless I have missed something. simulation and playability is paramount. the sound is very good.
Ps the chord box should also be on the left which would suit 95% of the right handed population. CUSTOMISATION WOUDL HELP.
