Hi everyone,

I wasn't sure if this should go here or in the Guitar Accessories page but I guess this doesn't really fit there any better, so here it goes.

I recently made an app for myself, that generates all available scales for a given chord. You give it a chord (e.g Cmaj7 9, #11) and it gives you back a list of all available scales you can play over this chord and draws them on the entire fretboard. You can also see the scales for entire songs or progressions and it has some bells and whistles, like it allows for all kinds of tunings, supports 7 string guitars etc etc.. I'm a jazz guitarist so that kind of thing is really useful for me.

Anyway, it came out pretty well and I decided to put it out there for free (and it will stay free) on the App store (It's an iPhone app). However, I want to make this app better and I am looking for feedback as to what kinds of things to put in there in addition to what it has so it is useful to most guitarists, not just me. Like, what would be good to have in addition to generating the scales, what other things would help with learning, improvising over those chords etc etc.

If you care for such a thing, check it out and let me know, its called ChordScales and you can easily find it in the app store. I'm really interested in what people would suggest, so let me know!

Thanks, keep shredding'!

Adbot? I don't even know anymore.
To be vulnerable is needed most of all, if you intend to truly fall apart.

AdPerson is more like it.

Who would pick a username based on something their advertising if they weren't advertising it?

It is free though. Hmm...

Adbots advertising free things!?

Um..Hi, I am a real person and I picked my username according to my app, thats true, but all I wanted was to collect feedback.

I'm sorry if this post offended someone, I didn't intent to, nor was this post ment to "advertise", I am a single person, not a company looking for profiting out of something, just thought I can get some good feedback.

I will gladly delete this post if it is inappropriate.

Thanks

Perhaps give suggestions as to which notes to emphasise for the chosen chord/scales, or some example phrases.


I like that. The example phrase may show you how to resolve tensions and to treat chord-tones and non-chord tones musically

cool idea!

Thanks

Next time you post something don't sound like such a tool. (lulz get it cuz bots are tools!)
Hi, you're better than me. Have a nice day!

Interesting. You can play any scale over any chord and visa versa. It all depends on what you play and what you play. Every chord is every chord at once, every scale is every scale at once. Eventually. That's music.
#16
Surely it would need to be a chord progression instead of a single chord, otherwise you'd have no idea what the root was.
#17
^ he said chord progressions too

LOL...Well, yes, kind of , it all resolves to the chromatic scale doesn't it

But on a less philosophical level, there are things we can kind of call "rules" or at least guidelines, so thats where its useful

Android compatibility would be great

Now this might happen, but again, its a free app, basically a "labor of love" and I do have a full time job and a a family so.... I'm not sure if it will happen soon...BUT, it will be easier than the Android version

Thanks though!

Of course! I understand that, though once you've attracted a lot of people with your free app you'll have a market ready for if you decide to develop something new and charge for it

Ah, I see. Sorry, I didn't know you weren't an adbot. I thought you were an adbot that was really smart.
No hard feelings brah.
It's a neat idea too, btw. Too bad I don't own a phone.

i love how no one can tell if it's an adbot anymore. That's when you know technology is getting too powerful.

Sounded like a great idea, so I go to Appstore, and.... I need 4.2 to download it... I have 3.3 or whatever, 4.2 was horrible on my POS 3g. Quite outdated, I know. Anyways, it's a great idea nonetheless!

You're not really supposed to advertise, spambot or not.


I don't think he was advertising as much as asking for reviews of his app... and it is a not-for-profit, genuinely useful app.

This sig is colored just to annoy the UG classic users.

...or you could learn how scales and chords are constructed, giving you an instant solution to any scalar/harmonic problem in your head.

...modes and scales are still useless.
