Pretty Good

This is pretty good but it is missing many too many alternate chords. Some of the alternate chords missing are easier than the ones showing. In fact some chords missing are the most common version of the chord. For example, F Maj. Look at other chord sites for mandolin. I question wether the person who put these chords in actually play mandolin. If they could add these it would be much better than all the other apps. It would be good to have an option to have users add these chords.

String Orientation

When rotating the display to the left to landscape mode the strings are oriented in reverse order. The G string should be on the bottom and the E string should be on the top just as the player would view the instrument when looking down at it.


A great resource

This is a terrific way to learn chords and scales for mandolin. Much better than thumbing through a book. It’s not just for beginners - need to know how to play a 9th or diminished chord? They’re all here.
My only gripe is that the sideways/landscape view shows the strings in reverse order. But that view is not essential, so I can live with the glitch.
Highly recommended for every mandolin player.
