Matt Demystifies Jazz Guitar

Although I know music, I've only been studying jazz guitar for eight months. Matt Warnock is my teacher. Since he's a musician /and/ a teacher he has a way of demystifying the
music. This app is a further step in his effort to publish all his knowledge about jazz guitar and make the music entirely accessible. Grab this high-quality app.

Limited and pricey

I have purchased some pricey guitar apps, like Guitar Toolkit, which were worth every penny. That said I am disappointed with this app, largely because it seems like a dollar app.

First the audio is pretty bad, using midi type sounds which are not pleasant. Second, for an $8 app, why not allow the user to choose different progressions as well? I knew I was getting 251s, but feel this app should go further with progression numbers you can change as well.

The random feature makes for many bizarre and harsh progressions. I think the dev could have included a "suggested" or "common" voicings option.

Lastly, I would been over the moon, if this app would allow for multiple progressions in different keys, to mimic a song and help a guitarist move between 251 progressions melodically.

I suppose I was expecting a lot more. The app does just what it says, in the most minimal sense, but at a high price.

GREAT app!!

Wow, Matt really put a lot of work and expertise into this. The design and layout are simple and top-notch, all of his explanations are both theoretically extensive and well taught, the app works great and isn't glitchy and the 251 generator is brilliant!! This is really going to take my comping to the next level. Thanks so much for a great app!
