Please add left hand feature

This is a great learning app especially if you’re right handed, but please consider updating the app to have a left handed mode for chords and scales, thank you. I highly recommend this app to anyone who plays or wants to play guitar

Better polished app than other guitar apps

Missed the ability to change the tuning of the guitar. Not everyone plays standard, and it would be great if you could change the tuning and have that reflect the mode.

Useful for soloing

I use the app when I’m playing over a chord progression and want to hit certain notes on the changes. Works well. It would be nice if they added the CAGED positions too.

Developer Response ,

We're happy you're enjoying it! We're adding each o the individual CAGED positions soon for the scales view.
