Ratings and Reviews
I want to give this app 5 stars, because it is innovative and has some remarkable teaching/practice/analysis potentials, but it is buggy on my system (big sur), and the interface is not the most intuitive. It has a learning curve, which is fine, but the video tutorials are a mixed bag. I am glad the creator keeps working on it, because it's quite unique in the world of music apps.
Really good for learning!!!
It's kinda crazy that there is barely any reviews! This app does have a learning curve but once you know what you are doing it's great. I am a college student studying jazz guitar and I use this app everyday. Great for practicing along with standards. Great for writing songs. Great for learning and understanding theory. And Version 8 is coming out! This app is awesome and continues to impress. 10/10 would recommend!!
This app is not good
I really want to like this app, but it is not good.
Every time I open it I either get so frustrated with the workflow that I quit, or it crashes and I've wasted enough time that I don't even bother opening it up again.
Oh, and the ratings are now skewed becaues they removed them all. I came back to the app store to redownload the program to see if that would stop it from crashing (it didn't) and see that all the reviews (including mine) had been removed.
