“The software I wanted to buy was the chords and scales and it is an excellent program. Well-designed and easy to use. Thanks.”

– Tom,plays in a band


  • 63 guitar chords types and guitar arpeggios
  • 83 scale types (common and exotic)+Modal variations of each scale
  • 57 different tunings including tunings for various bass types as well as for 7 string guitar
  • Instantly see equivalent scales (containing same notes) as selected scale (so you can improvise in well known C major instead, to say, B Locrian)
  • See at a¬† glance all chords that can be derived from any scale (invaluable for improvisation ideas)
  • Hear any chord/arpeggio or scale played with instrument of your choice. Even better – hear any scale over any chord (understanding the meaning of different scale modes will be easy-finally)
  • Skip strings (you will immediately see patterns on fretboard which are not so obvious)
  • Find chords or scales by drawing dots on fretboard

“Chords & Scales realy improved my guitar knowledge,I enjoy program! “

– Miguel,Spain
