Introducing Monster Chords, a new and one-of-a-kind way to learn the guitar! This app makes learning every chord a fun challenge, and it removes the tedium that can come with music learning by making it a game! Perfect for beginners of all ages,all you need is a guitar or ukulele! What's more, you can even create your own music through the Composer Mode!

Shy, music-loving monsters roam the dark forest, and would like nothing more than to hear some good music. Play the right chords in time with the music to draw them out of hiding. Each time you play the correct chord, the monsters move closer towards your campfire. If you make a mistake, they will go back into hiding.

Jam along to classic songs like "London Bridge Is Falling Down", "Mary Had A Little Lamb", "LadyBird", "I'm A Little Teapot", and get in the groove with over 20 original modern compositions.

Monster Chords also introduces the Composer Mode, a simple, user-friendly tool that lets you create your own songs. You only need to choose the tempo (or beats per minute) and drag and drop chords to start making your own groove. Upload your own songs and share them with your friends, or play songs created by other users!

Monster Chords ranks chord playing with a simple and friendly star rating, allowing you to practice and improve your guitar skills over time. It also includes a guitar tuner minigame that you can play in either timed or easy mode.

With 50 challenging levels, kids will absolutely love this approach to learn chords, and will keep coming back for more practice. Levels/songs will be added every month, so there will be lots of new content to look forward to.

Ok so…..

I saw great reviews on this so I thought it was going to be great!!
I love the app but I’m a little old for it and I guessed too experienced on the ukulele, because it asks you some questions before you start, and one of them was “ have you played the ukulele before? “ I said yes. When I was playing it took me through everything super slowly and didn’t go as fast as I expected. I’m also in 7th grade and this is probably made for 2nd-4th graders. I did learn the dm cord so it was helpful. I recommend it, but it just wasn’t built for me.
Love the graphics and how easy the instructions are to understand!!
Hope more love it too!!

Great app! No complaints!

This is the best app ever! I feel able to actually learn without being confused. Yes I’m a 5th grader, this is for probably lower lower grades, but I’m ACTUALLY learning something rather than using a more adult leaning app which just messes with me. Use it! It’s amazing! 5 stars are far more than worth it!(+subscription DOESN'T cost $60!)

Making learning fun

So far I’m enjoying this app. I downloaded it to refresh my memory on my guitar chords but also as a learning option for my daughter. So far I love playing the chord games. I hope you develop other games to help with other instruments.
