Great Practice Tool

This tool keeps getting better!

In the Define Your Own Chords Player, would like to be able select specific chords and have them presented in a random fashion.

Love it

Simple to use and very flexible. The free version gave me plenty to play with. I upgraded just to support the developer, but now I can really play around!
