Amazing and Powerful Tool! I must shamefully admit that I pirated this app for a few years... Yeah, sorry about that. But, now that I've earned some actual disposable income, I have to come back and buy this to support! Amazing and incredibly deep tool, full of features, and plenty of theory buried in there too. You like a progression but unsure what to solo with? Type in your chords and bam, there's a scale for you. Wanna know what funky chord you just played? Put in the notes and bam!
Love it! This is a great companion program to the "Music Theory for Dummies" book I've been working my way through for the last year. I really love how the chords can be scaled across the fingerboard. That helps see how scales can follow chord progressions.
The hidden gem of guitar learning! This is probably one of the greatest guitar apps out there hands down. It has every chord and scale you could ever need, I use it daily to learn more guitar scales. The developers respond the same day if you have issues. It was definitely worth the price!
Update made it hard to use I loved the previous version, it was easy to use and fit my phone screen nicely. This new version is clunky and hard to navigate. When I want to switch keys it takes too many clicks. The view didn't fit my phone screen. I used to use this app all the time but since the interface update I never use it. Too bad.
So counter intuitive, so many weird choices. Why does a GUITAR app show you piano keys by default (unchangeable?) when looking at scales and require extra clicks to get to the GUITAR part. Add the piano, fine, but not as the FIRST thing it shows. Dumb...
I am writing a new review for this. I searched for another guitar app, have smart chord too, that one is not as good even with extra content. This one is easily the best guitar app. An amazing tool for android users, and worth it for Mac as well. The amount of scales alone is great. I like to put some reverb on, a little overdrive and play some exotic scales. Very y. I hope people find this one and GET RID OF any other music apps, guitar ones at least. The different ways it shows you, and sounds out the scales and notes so you know if you are playing it right, are what sets this one at the top of a long list of guitar apps. Plus it shows notes on piano, making it awesome for keyboard or piano work. Flawless victory
No other app is as complete as this app. Maybe the only thing it is missing is a simple Circle of 5ths, but the otherwise, invaluable. Every scale, every mode. Search for a chord and see the fingerings. Need to know the chord progression? It'll tell you. Glad I paid for full version.
I've downloaded a ton of music apps over the years, this one I genuinely find useful. Especially when I'm writing. The reverse chord search and added harmony search. Is an absolute god send. If you write music using guitar, it's a serious must have app...they've genuinely thought of everything. Thanks 'Chord!'
When this app first came out, for years it was my ALL-TIME favorite app. I introduced it to Vai, Jason Becker, Vernon Reid. It was a privilege to help the dev with music theory regarding enharmonic equivalents for a previous CHORD! update (for free, because I loved the app so much and wanted people to learn music correctly; no flats nor sharps are arbitrary in music, not by a longshot). Since he got rid of those enharmonic equivalents changes, I want my name in no way related to this app. The current version of CHORD! is so profoundly inaccurate with regard to the correct enharmonic equivalent names of the notes in scales / modes / and chords, it renders the app flawed because if you're not offering the correct notes listed in the scales/ modes/ chords/ and families, the most fundamental building block of music, why offer them at all? (Note there is a button to show the correct "enharmonic equivalents" for B/C and E/F notes only! That is absurd, as EVERY scale/ mode outside of the C Major [and relative Am] deals with enharmonic equivalents.) I looked up D Harmonic minor to see if the correct enharmonic notes were showing: No. D Harmonic minor consists of the notes D, E, F, G, A, Bb, C#, (D). There's no such thing as a scale with D, E, F, G, A, Bb, Dd, (D). [With these notes, the Faug chord in the harmonized D Harmonic minor scale would have a FLAT sixth (Db) instead of an augmented 5th (C#), and that's just sloppy and incorrect]. This app COULD be brilliant. But the developer's admitted lack of music theory knowledge, now coupled with his lack of giving a hoot to the theory that has enabled those of us who play by ear, and those who read or do both, respectively, is unfortunate, ESPECIALLY to the beginners. When this app was simple, it was brilliant. Especially when the enharmonic equivalents were fixed. I just looked up three basic scales, modes, chords, respectively, and they all contained incorrect note values. That's just a shame. I played by ear the first 29 years I played, but at least I was taught the correct names of the notes in the pentatonic scales and modes, respectively, and chord families. This made learning music theory in my 30s-- in order to deconstruct/ understand what Zappa was doing-- that much easier, as I had a solid foundation to begin with. Disabled the past 13 years, I read and write everything in my head. I used this app years ago to help pick the chord voicings I wanted. Now, it's just easier for me to visualize the guitar neck with the correct notes in my head and transpose them into my tiny My Piano app on my phone. Grateful for the years this was app was king.
Best guitar scales and chords app. Maybe could use a practice mode where it shoots varying scales and chords at you When I Record I have it out as a guideline and build off of it, if I don't I [email protected]#$%! a brick wall on what to play and what will sound good
Incredible!! Love this App, I've played guitar for over 20years and I'm amazed at how much work was put into this App. Broken down into chords scales etc. Easy to use and i simply can't say enough good things about this App. Great job guys, giving you 5 stars only because I can't give you 10 stars!
was once my go-to app for all things chords and scales. maybe it's my Galaxy S9, or Android Pie, but the app now crashes CONSTANTLY. Oddly, looking for scales/chords in certain keys will crash the app every time. It's strange. It's too bad a great app has been rendered unusable. I did buy in 7 or 8 years ago, so I guess I got my money's worth
Great app! I've used four or five chord finding apps, and three reverse chord functionality. This one is the best by far. This could be more accurately called a voicing and harmonization app, with various methods of chord entry. Either the standard chord builder or the reverse chord finder can be used as an entry into the "fingerings" or "harmonization" section. Fingerings allows you to browse the various voicings Chord! generates. "Harmonization" suggests scales that work over the chords you've entered. Great app!
Great app, using it to supplement my mandolin studies. Incredibly well designed and highly useful. The only problem I've found is that the mandolin standard tuning is an octave lower than the instrument, which was easily fixed in the app - I had forgotten until I installed the app on a second device.
Would give this 5 stars if it included a way of building progressions from your favorites that could be played and looped (even a very simple one would be better than nothing) seeing as it already has a sound engine for playing chords. This addition would greatly enhance the utility of the app. Otherwise, I've been using this app for years now and it is my goto for building chords from simple to advanced, would highly recommend for any level of musician.
muddled confusingly thick I [email protected]#$%! as quicker and more intuitive there are scales I will never use still I muddle on it like the problem was written more by a programmer than a musician I really have to dig through the program to information useful to me ?
Awesome app! The UI changed a lot since I began using it, and some of the tablet display mode seems missing on mobile, but it works the same. My only concern is that your favorites/preferences etc are saved locally and so, if you don't have any mean to backup app data you will have to restart everything again (happended to me twice).
Always come back to Chord! with every phone over the past few years. The UI has changed but functionality has only improved. The lower stars seems to be from people who prefer the old UI, and I do too but this is still a Five Star app no doubt. Dev's- Maybe add a style option to switch to the old UI?
I believe this is a great app, however you want to know what you guys are missing here, show the cord diagrams. Yes because if someone like me, want to know how to play an specific chord, just with a simple tab over the chord letter I'll know how to play it. Other then that "AWESOME APP"
Very functional app, I love the features! (Also i can also use my SHS-500 without my old iPod!). My one request is that the back button actually taking you back, as currently it just closes the app and i have tk re-setup my instrument on the app. Make the back button work and 5*s!
