Learning the location of all of the notes on your instrument can help you become a better player. It makes it easier to find alternate chord voicings, break out of scale boxes, learn note relationships, and to find notes that “fit” when improvising. Note-orious will help you learn the location of every note on the fretboard for the guitar (6, 7, and 8 string and tenor guitar), bass (4, 5, and 6 string), ukulele, banjo, mandolin, or bouzouki (3 and 4 string). Note-orious supports a variety of tunings for each instrument.

Features Include:

• Three different learning modes: Find all occurrences of a note on the fretboard, name the note shown on the fretboard, and a mix of the two.
• Choose from a variety of instruments (Guitar, Bass, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, and Bouzouki) with different tunings available for each instrument.
• Keep track of your progress overall, as well as for individual strings and notes.
• Choose which strings to practice.
• Choose which notes to practice.
• Choose how sharps and flats are presented (only sharps, only flats, or a random mix).
• Set the practice time or choose an open-ended practice.
• Syncs your progress across multiple devices via iCloud.
• Left handed mode!
• Multiple fretboard materials and inlay options.
• Progress tracking is based on practice configuration, so you can keep track of your progress with different instruments, tunings, and other options.
• Support for Dark Mode.
• Buy it once and get Note-orious on the Mac, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

Missing One Thing..oops!! Two

This is a nice way to learn ear training on the note sounds, However to make this app shine you shouldadd the abiity to see all of the fretboard showing all of each notes placement on it. Not as part of the game aspect but as a visual reference for learning. 2. You should show the 5th string on a 5 string banjo.That string is fretted also in many songs and tunings. Add these and you get 5 stars.
