Serious about learning the scales? Get this app! Unlike other one-way apps that just "let you do stuff" this one not only shows you what you should be doing (just like a teacher does) but also "listens to" what you are playing (just like a good teacher would) so that you can get instant feedback and improve. Suggestion for developer - use that microphone to let folks practice along with a real guitar while the app monitors the frequency of the note played. Guitar tuners already detect octave and notes so it should be relatively painless to re-purpose an existing tuner code to accomplish this. Oh and a movable and/or rotating fretboard would be nice since in the current layout the presets get in the way of a natural left/right hand grip (why would anyone practice hunt-and-peck style? Finally, getting rid of the "spread-sheet" style layout and replacing it with six simple lines without borders but with hotspots just above the fret and on the string would bring this much closer to perfect. Good luck and thanks for an amazing app!
