Description
Learn and look up guitar chords and scales. Play electric and acoustic guitar, right on your iPhone or iPad. Record riffs, and share them with friends. Full fingerings show you which fingers to put where, with barres clearly labeled to get you up and down the fretboard. Built-in guitar video lessons help you go from zero to guitar hero, taught by professional musicians. Know how to play it but not what it's called? Reverse ChordFinder mode lets you tap the fretboard and identify any of the thousands of chords inside of chordbank®. Clean, clear interface makes choosing chords a snap. Full left handed support for all fingerings. Strum to hear any chord played from gorgeous, crisp audio samples. Sounds great from the iPhone speaker, or headphones to brush up on chords in private. Many of chordbank®'s features are free but, for just $4.99 per month, less than even a single set of guitar strings, a chordbank® Pro subscription provides full access to thousands of chords in all keys, scales and scale patterns, backing tracks, a library of video lessons recorded by professional musicians, and more. If you decide to purchase a subscription to chordbank® Pro, an initial payment will be charged to your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of each subscription period, at a rate of $4.99 per month. You can turn off auto-renewal at any time via your iTunes Account Settings. You can find our privacy policy at https://chordbank.com/privacy, and our terms of service at https://chordbank.com/terms-of-service. We hope chordbank® helps you, as it has helped millions of other guitarists since 2010, to get the most out of your playing. If you enjoy the app, or have suggestions to make it better, please let us know at chordbank.com/support. Thanks!
Excessive money charges
by DKUSAret on 2020/09/25 22:46
Stop charging me g FB or this app. I’m uninstalling now.
Bruh moment
by Fric Off on 2020/09/21 23:01
The app straight just stops working after a certain amount of taps and it pushes its premium version on you constantly
Wish it recharged
by thomas#720 on 2020/09/21 20:24
With there was a way to practice more without paying
Monthly fee
by another human like you on 2020/09/20 05:05
I would happily pay a one time fee of $50 for this app. Make me sign up for a monthly fee? You’re not getting a dime.
Garbage
by Ameyli on 2020/09/14 09:47
Pretty much unusable in the ‘free’ version The number of CONSTANT pop ups and ‘notifications’ for you to buy the premium are beyond extreme. Looks elsewhere for aother guitar app.
Waste time
by what is the time on 2020/07/27 13:07
Just to give me the one store
This is a learning guitarist must have!
by mflagg67 on 2020/07/24 01:58
This is one of the best, most useful guitar apps for the iPad ever made for someone learning guitar or still needs to reference chords and scales. I upgraded to Platinum+ account and I love it! The AI work well with my 2nd gen. 12.9" iPad Pro while listening to my Orangewood Brooklyn acoustic or my Florentine Les Paul amped, clean or distorted, through my Boss Katana mkii head through the the built in speaker.
Not worth the price
by johnson dinkledorf on 2020/07/09 22:37
$5 a week. The features are high quality, but I simply cannot justify spending $5 a week for chord charts.
This app is awful
by Mamaitos de mamores on 2020/07/07 18:41
You have to pay for everything, chords sounds very bad, bad it has a very bad quality. It’s reload very slow and it socks.
Now with... GAMES?
by aintnoneleft on 2020/06/24 02:52
This has been a pretty decent and useful app. But now they’ve decided to add games to it? Truly a “jump the shark” moment.
Give and give some more
by Tkrug on 2020/06/21 12:28
This app is $60 per year. It’s a nice looking app, but I don’t believe it’s worth it.
FKJing rip off
by 치킨커피 on 2020/06/19 19:06
This kinda sit used to cost $1.99~9.99 back when clouds and netflix didn't emerge yet. Now it costs 4.99 a month??? It costs as much as Google drive space. FKJing developers these days don't know that they are destroying the future of consumer software industries. What some dumb bunch of untalented guitarists who don't even know their cretdit card is checking $60 a year for what they use like a couple times a year. What an insane world, man.
Really Well Done
by ghygghhtty on 2020/06/06 07:41
It’s a simple, yet extremely informative app. It doesn’t strong am you with trying to teach you the way the developer team thinks guitar should be taught. It simply takes a lot of critical information, categorizes it and makes it very accessible. I would say it’s really good for the late beginner/early intermediate player all the way through to advanced. You need to know what to look for to get the most out of these tools
I’ve never touched a guitar before 5 star
by n.lopez_18 on 2020/05/22 04:36
This is the first free app that actually helped me tune my guitar without confusing me like every YouTube video and other apps I used. I was so excited when I realized I sounded like the man in the video and then I could finally learn songs without being out of tune!!!😆😁😁I never write reviews on apps but this one finally deserved it I was way too hype not to write one.
Good, but not how I like it
by Damianpichardo1711 on 2020/05/17 23:55
This is a good app, but I’m not saying not to download it or anything. I’m saying the screen is not how I like it, others should really give this app a try, they might learn cool songs or songs hat are very hard to play. I just don’t like how the screen is.
Too much pressure to upgrade
by Ebobman on 2020/04/28 11:54
I couldn’t change chords without a pop-up. I don’t know if this happened for everyone, but it’s pretty annoying. Other than that, it seems like a cool app. I’ll never really know since I’m deleting it. Being able to at least click around for more than 5mins without being asked to upgrade would have been nice.
Outstanding chord and scale app
by TaylorPlayer on 2020/04/26 21:31
This is a wonderful learning tool. It has a lot of useful tools to locate scales and chords and practice them in a variety of ways. One of the best I have found. The interface is pretty easy to navigate and there are some clever functions such as integrated video lessons and flashcards. I especially like the flashcards as this was something I was going to make for myself but find that I can use the ones incorporated within the app.
GARBAGE
by Kick the buddie playr4786 on 2020/04/12 17:16
You are only able to learn two of the easiest chords C and G and you have to pay for the rest. Zero stars.
P
by Plevek on 2020/04/07 21:36
Excellent app! Very easy to use. I like that I can sound the strings individually.
Misleading
by ChrisTracker on 2020/04/04 14:53
Why does the description say $19.99 for 12 month pro version, but when you download the app it says $4.99 per month? I would like the pro version, but not at $60 per year. This is very misleading.
I used to love this app but...
by caethewolf on 2020/03/30 23:43
Now I literally can’t do anything on this app because every time I try it asks me to pay money so this app is not actually free!
Why the Change ???
by Jpitsme on 2020/03/29 00:57
I use to love this app, I bought it back when it first came out. Now all of a sudden if I want to have full access to the stuff I use to use I have to pay $4.99 a month, or watch another add, I don’t think so, I will look for another app! Why does everyone have to be so greedy. A one time charge should be sufficient.
No support for Multitasking
by James R Martin on 2020/03/14 00:38
Please update the app to be able to use split screen and multitasking on the iPad. App only works in full screen
UPDATED
by tcdav26 on 2020/03/13 02:14
I’m really love this app! I’m just confused because I had already bought the pro version , now there is a subscription thing? Hope I get a reply. UPDATE: Chris with support was able to fix my issue! Great customer service! GET THIS APP!
I don’t buy many apps...
by Jjgay on 2020/03/06 03:10
I bought this app though and it’s amazing.
great format, awful paywall
by you STOLE fizzy lifting drinks on 2020/02/25 05:18
I’d be willing to pay a one time fee, but some garbage subscription makes me want to kill myself
Purchased the year 14.99 subscription and it won’t let me use the pro version
by Jruizz24 on 2020/02/20 19:09
Also made an account with the app and when I try to contact customer service it says I don’t have an email linked with my account.... really frustrating i love the app but it isn’t working right...
Sorry I updated
by 10Rob32 on 2020/02/16 23:12
It was ok until I updated, nothing but popup ads now, nerfed and WAY WAY WAY TOO expensive so deleting is the best option...
Dev Blew it with “meter”, ads, & new $ubscription model
by FB jumps shark on 2020/02/14 19:28
Used to love it. Paid for it. Now VERY limited access (dreadful “countdown meter”) plus ads unless u pay monthly fee. Bummed.
Functionally Useless as a Free App Now
by Dinho2a on 2020/02/11 07:07
To get any mileage out of this app now requires a monthly subscription fee, which the app previously didn’t. Decent app otherwise but just have us pay up front why don’t ya instead of the monthly gouging
App works, but developers are greedy
by tommy522 on 2020/02/05 01:45
The app used to be free, with purchases of new chords and scales, now it’s a subscription to even use it and the chords I purchased awhile ago are just gone, saying I now have to pay monthly.
No songs
by gdshisyusfhjdfigstuhskjfgvgtog on 2020/01/30 02:18
Just chords
It’s an ad farm
by Bud649 on 2020/01/29 15:30
Worked fine but devolves into an ad farm. If you want a free app go elsewhere.
Good but expensive
by alejandr1o on 2020/01/22 05:08
I like the app but I would like the caged chords all put in order so I can easily move my chords.
WONT LET ME FIND CHORDS
by roger sprecco on 2020/01/08 21:43
Do I have to buy the pro version? The app let me look up a couple chords, but now when I try to do anything on the app an ad for the pro version pops up. I click later or x on it to make it go away but it keeps popping up. It seems like I HAVE to buy the pro version. Which is pretty stupid. Also you guys don’t have anywhere to be contacted besides here which is also pretty stupid.
Great tool
by jademacrobin on 2019/12/24 05:50
Great app
Terrible changes- do not use
by Jim818 on 2019/11/28 05:07
This was a nice little app to easily look up basic chords. There was a premium version but it soon went to a subscription model and while that sorta sucked you could still use it reasonably well. Recently, they decided to take the most despicable of practices from mobile gaming, a METER that runs down for every chord you look up and gate your usage unless you pay up. The rave reviews came before these mobile game mechanics ruined the app so don’t be fooled by its rating. Pass on this trash and the dev should fire whoever consulted with mobile gaming in order to turn a buck. Deleted.
Why do you have a meter
by You not taking my nickname on 2019/11/23 13:17
I like this app but why is there a meter. I can't do anything and the app ask me to buy pro.
Essential
by No thanks 78 on 2019/11/13 00:56
This is an amazing app for guitar players. Highly recommend it, the paid features for the full version of chords and scales are worth it! Customer support is highly responsive as well.
Tuner
by Zach Hermosillo on 2019/11/09 05:38
The tuner is ok except it can’t tell between certain chords.
Wow indeed
by Timmy Put on 2019/10/26 16:56
Latest update with flash cards is quite impressive Great app!
Once was good. Now they ruined it.
by NeedMoreLeadChips on 2019/10/23 03:32
Has a new energy meter bar. Once it depletes you can’t look at different chords. Immediately uninstalled when they rolled out the update.
I’m slowly learning how to play the guitar.
by Aaron Devlin on 2019/08/24 20:33
I love this app I’m slowly learning how to play the guitar, problem is with me I’m left handed playing an right handed guitar it’s hard to get my fingers in the right place , I wish they’re was easier way to know where my fingers go so I don’t make an mistake like learning the G Chord that’s probably the hardest chord to learn I’ve tried many times trying to figure out how to play it without making an progress I don’t have the money to pay for full version of the app so it’s kinda of hard for me to learn .
Alacarte App
by appleappssuck on 2019/08/12 05:32
When I purchased this app I expected to have access to a full featured app. That is not the case. You get the basics for the initial purchase price of around 8 bucks, then get nickeled and dimed for incremental features. I wouldn’t have minded so much If the “menu” of prices per feature were listed so the purchaser knows up front what they’re buying, but, it doesn’t become apparent until you attempt to access other features and are blocked with a pop up requesting more and more money. Having written this, I don’t deny the apps quality, I just don’t like that prices aren’t known up front.
Totally Useless
by Steverzz on 2019/06/18 14:45
This app is totally useless unless you purchase it. Except for beginner chords such as G, D,C, A,E, everything else you have to pay for. Better apps and Google can give you everything for free.
Best Guitar App After a Year of Experimentation
by +Aziz on 2019/06/08 18:55
I’m not the type to write app reviews but I feel that what this developer is doing is truly exceptional & making a difference in my ability to do my job as a musician. I downloaded a huge amount of apps and distilled my collection down to a few essential tools. This app is most definitely part of my toolkit!
Extremely useful
by SuperAVPplayer on 2019/06/08 06:54
I use the reverse chord finder to experiment and find new voicings. They added a tuner that you could set to drop tunings or alternate tunings but i wish they added a feature that would adjust the chords to an alternative tuning

Most used guitar app, but...
by michaljohnson on 2019/05/01 17:48
I’ve really enjoyed using the paid version of this app for the Reverse Chord and Recording features. Highly recommend it! I keep having an issue that the app audio won’t play over Bluetooth - is that a bug, or am I missing a setting? Wonderful app - really appreciate it!!!
My goto App!
by Machski217 on 2019/04/08 15:50
I use ChordBank at home and on the go! Great for lessons. This app helped me better understand the guitar. I wanted to know more about what I was playing vs going through the motions. Reverse chord finder on this app identified for me what chord I was playing when I only knew the finger positions.
Best guitar app
by Jawbone2a on 2019/04/03 15:44
This app has built me from the ground up. It’s easy to navigate and extremely resourceful. A huge thank you to the creators. Strum away!
Great App!!
by Basstrax on 2019/03/24 16:17
I’ve been a bass player for a long time and “dabbled” with guitar. I’ve recently been diving more into guitar and wanting to learn and build a better chord library. Found and installed this app a few minutes ago and can already tell this is going to be the most used app on my phone! The Platinum is the only way to go! I think it would be cool if the app had the ability to use alternate tunings! That’s something I like playing around with! Overall, great job!!
amazing
by pamjimofski on 2019/03/24 01:45
this app is amazing !!! thats all !!
Subscription for a chords app? Are you kidding me?!
by Mandalite on 2019/03/20 03:44
The idea of applying a subscription model to an app containing chords and scales seems like a bizarre tactic to me. I suggest returning to the ownership model for this one.
Driving me crazy!!!!!!
by hiiii!!!!!!!!!!! on 2019/03/20 02:49
This app drives me crazy it’s like all apps there I can’t learn everything I want to and at the end when you delete it you just gonna be lying on the couch just annoyed and upset ok yes you won’t learn guitar in one day but if you don’t learn something it’s worthless and I can’t by it ( because I’m not an Adult) I want a app that teaches me with full access to where my mind wants to go no time limits no restrictions just me learning guitar and being successful that’s how I feel about all apps I tried out I just don’t want to write reviews for all of them but if I can’t get the tools I need I will never learn!
Decent app
by Axiomagical on 2019/02/07 17:28
It does the trick, but there are other, far cheaper apps that are better. For the price you pay to unlock features, you should be getting more. I have been very pleased with Chord!; it’s a one time (cheap) purchase that provides everything this app provides, and a lot more (save for jam tracks).
This is an AMAZING app
by ESTHERfaithLOVESit on 2019/01/05 15:54
OMG I love this app. I had a $15 iTunes gift card so I bought the lessons and I learned and memorized the song Amazing Grace 2 hours! Hahahahaha this app is AMAZING, best $10 I’ve ever spent.
Good but nickel and dime for each item.
by Pidlsquit 87$983 on 2019/01/04 22:25
Just make it a flat rate dude and you will come out way better. Competition is out there.
Absolutely love this app
by QuizUp addict on 2019/01/04 16:24
Get this app
It works!
by mrskikigreen on 2018/11/24 16:33
I love this app. I have learned so much so fast. The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because there are no songs that you can learn while putting chords together.
10/10 guitar app, replaced several books.
by knowarock on 2018/11/22 08:26
ChordBank is the best guitar chord app on the App Store. It has everything, dude. It has like 16 scales, it has chords in every position key and flavor, it has a chord analyzer thingy for looking up what chord a certain fingering is, it’s got a tuner, metronome, backing tracks, and you can strum chords/pluck notes. This app is a one stop shop for any guitar player, new or experienced. Imagine having access to any chord at the tips of your fingers, then buy this app and make your dreams come true. It is worth the fifteen bucks.
Great but...

Great Learning Tool
by Mr. Johnny 24 on 2018/11/09 02:56
I had this app in my iPhone and really enjoyed it. In order to get more use out of it I downloaded it for my iPad. The bigger screen of the iPad allows me to see the whole fretboard of notes for each of the scales. There are enough scales offered to help a beginner to learn to play with some good soloing skills or to help an advanced player increase their skill set. An advanced player will probably find the backing tracks only to be OK. However for a novice player he/she will find them quite useful. The chord directory and metronome is quite useful as is the tuner. A players skill level will determine the usefulness of these straight forward lessons.
Awesome App
by Ken Taylor on 2018/11/05 12:13
Super interface, and easy to figure out. I find the scales section extremely useful as a newbie.
Free Lessons Gone
by 9262994726 on 2018/11/03 02:15
Since the newest update all the free lessons have to be payed for. I think it was great that they use to be free. The only thing this app can be used for now is tuning and that’s it.
Great app but
by HeyGuysItsMeRyan on 2018/10/31 06:41
Metronome doesn’t work properly. Doesn’t have time signatures for 5/4, 6/4, or 7/4, and the clicks only play either 3/4 or 4/4 no matter what you choose. The 12/8 option doesn’t even have an upbeat to start a new measure. Other than that the app is really solid and worth the full price
Guitar Student
by Applebees 1802 on 2018/09/29 17:46
The application is extremely limited unless expensive upgrades are purchased. I purchased the upgrades and I am still unable to use the functions that I paid for.
Awesome
by aalvabmw on 2018/09/22 22:24
I can know understand how to play guitar
What happened?
by Lapulgaluterana on 2018/09/19 01:32
This app used to be great and had tons of free content ..now all of a sudden basic stuff you have to upgrade and pay a premium ...disappointing I have to delete it now.
Love it
by jmuse53 on 2018/09/11 16:33
Great app. Very intuitive and the best reverse chord feature I’ve seen. Plus a tuner and tons of other features. Now how bout a mando chord chart?
Very useful app
by FrostyKool on 2018/09/08 21:11
With the chords and scales on here, I can stop sifting through books, looking for the right chord, and the reverse inversions are useful as well. Plus with the metronome and tuner, I’m down to one app.
Chords!
by Mcall1955 on 2018/09/06 18:50
Great resource and it fits in my pocket. I’ve used this off and on for several years.
Great app but....
by bruin22a on 2018/08/31 11:23
First of all This app totally taught me to play a lot of guitar chords very easily. Great instruction and fun to do. I was a little disappointed when I got to the end of the “barre exam” and that was it. No more instruction. I learned 15 chords or so but then was all over. There is a place with all the scales but it didn’t show how to play scales, and as a complete beginner like me would be nice
Well worth it
by Jewelsg88123 on 2018/08/03 15:57
I bought the full version. I'm a complete beginner, but this challenges me. I like that they teach specific chord combinations to build off of each other. I've been playing for a week, and I'm already comfortable playing 8 chords and switching between them. I'm excited to learn more. Some songs are hard at first, but it's fun to play along and get faster and faster with practice.
Notes disappear
by CW868 on 2018/07/29 19:20
🙁Hoping a bug fix would be available for notes in my practice section that don’t work..i paid for the full version of this app and while I’m very happy with the decision the fix would easily give this app a 5 Star rating.
Pay to play garbage.
by Scrotal Chaos on 2018/07/27 13:55
1st chord I looked up—a B7sus4, it tried to charge me money for the result. No thanks.
Great app, but could fit the screen better for portrait
by Myrkskog on 2018/07/26 04:52
iPad 9.7. This app has tons of uses and is well worth the price for the full version. My only pet peeve is the way scales don’t display properly and some of the notes are cut off until you scroll down in portrait. This may be because the same amount of notes display on the landscape mode. Take some hints from how the interface from rock smith works for scale patterns, display it so I can zoom in and out on different sections of the pattern, or view the entire fretboard. The reverse chord finder and genius are helpful for writing. I also like being able to hear every chord and note if I want. Anyways great app and hopefully they can fix the notes disappearing thing.
$15.00? Are you high??
by Mr Neptune on 2018/07/18 01:59
Great app, but if you think I’m paying $15 for it, you’re huffing paint.
Worth every penny
by Dpaulflow on 2018/07/14 18:36
Lit 🔥
Very Useful, but You Will Need the Paid Upgrade
by Disappointed-and-Annoyed on 2018/07/11 14:45
This app is an excellent tool for learning to play the guitar or adding to your skills. You need to upgrade to “Platinum” to access some essential chords and scales, but it’s worth the cost. It includes alternate ways to play each chord and all the scale positions. It also has backing tracts to play along with. The “lessons” are very basic, but good for beginners. All in all, Chord Bank is a great resource for guitarists at all levels.
Best guitar🎸app ever
by Naya46 on 2018/06/15 11:14
I’ve been using this app for years and I must say it’s been a great 👍 help to me on my guitar journey. Somehow I lost access to the pro features, so I sent an email and I got a quick response from Chris and was able to get my app running perfectly again. First class customer service. Best investment ever, just get the app and you won’t regret..... highly recommend this app for every guitarist from beginner to advanced!
Great app
by GCdog on 2018/06/07 06:15
Great for any level of guitarist.
Why are the chords reversed?
by qualitasrebus on 2018/05/26 19:07
Suddenly the apps showing all of the chords and the strings in reverse...?whats going on? I had to reinstall it to get the chords and strings back in the right order.

This is a wonderful app.
by ShellyMQ on 2018/04/24 13:21
This is an insanely useful app, especially for an intermediate guitar player. This is the first time I have ever paid the full price to get an app. It was worth it. Great job.
Find that finger shape
by Conetipper on 2018/04/18 21:55
I found this app to help with remembering those uncommon chord shapes. Easy to use interface and it is easy to move up the neck to see if that song would be easier to play in another position.
Complete rip off
by J3b_ on 2018/03/19 07:25
You can only see basic chord shapes, if you want to see anything like m7 you will have to upgrade... waste of time
Misleading information
by Jglanc on 2018/03/17 20:39
You only get basic chord information. You have to pay for additional chords (Bflat7 chord is an additional cost). This is not clearly explained.
Awesome App!
by Caseclosed33 on 2018/03/03 03:00
If intervals were able to show on all positions of scales it would be perfect. Very nice!

I am very impressed with this app. I just started learning guitar so I was looking for a good app, but I found a great one! Thanks! CH

Best guitar app about chords and scales!!!! Love it!!!!
I love this app
by Rube4 on 2018/01/15 23:27
This app is fantastic. I have been using it for years. I love the growth that has come along with the app. It never stops teaching me something new. I catch myself just practicing how chords sound together in my spare time away from a guitar instead of playing games on my phone. You can tell that the makers of this app really love guitar and want anyone who is interested in guitar to be able to play. It really is worth the money to buy the full app. The tutorials and access to several different chords are super helpful. However I have lost access to the entire app. I have tried restore purchases and it just spins endlessly. I still have ChordBank pro on my iPad, but it’s reverted on my iPhone. Big bummer. It’s such a great tool to just have in my pocket. Update: Ok, so after a email and a very quick response Chris was able to get my app working correctly for me. Hands down great customer service.
Easy intergraded perfection
by Ikeisaaic on 2018/01/05 18:54
Actually decent Jam tracks, scales in every possible configuration, tuner, chords galore, circle of 5ths, complete with lessons for not only a better understanding of guitar, yet an easier, way less lame way of learning to jam with scales.
Worth it for the “Genius” feature alone
by Wayzon on 2017/12/30 14:07
This app is a great quick reference, but the best feature is the suggested chord progressions or “genius” feature. I hope they enhance the learning feature over time.
Even a pro needs this app!
by Skyway Picker on 2017/12/05 02:01
Even though I’ve played for decades and learned hundreds of chords and songs, I use this app to find the multiple names given to unknown chords I have played or am learning. Just simple, exact and professional.
Great Learning Tool
by Mr. Johnny 24 on 2018/11/09 02:56
I had this app in my iPhone and really enjoyed it. In order to get more use out of it I downloaded it for my iPad. The bigger screen of the iPad allows me to see the whole fretboard of notes for each of the scales. There are enough scales offered to help a beginner to learn to play with some good soloing skills or to help an advanced player increase their skill set. An advanced player will probably find the backing tracks only to be OK. However for a novice player he/she will find them quite useful. The chord directory and metronome is quite useful as is the tuner. A players skill level will determine the usefulness of these straight forward lessons.
Great app, but could fit the screen better for portrait
by Myrkskog on 2018/07/26 04:52
iPad 9.7. This app has tons of uses and is well worth the price for the full version. My only pet peeve is the way scales don’t display properly and some of the notes are cut off until you scroll down in portrait. This may be because the same amount of notes display on the landscape mode. Take some hints from how the interface from rock smith works for scale patterns, display it so I can zoom in and out on different sections of the pattern, or view the entire fretboard. The reverse chord finder and genius are helpful for writing. I also like being able to hear every chord and note if I want. Anyways great app and hopefully they can fix the notes disappearing thing.
Best ten dollars I've ever spent
by Freshprinceofbethel on 2017/10/18 01:59
This is probably now one of my favorite apps of all time. It's extremely easy to use and very helpful in finding new chords for beginners. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn the guitar because you will be able to teach yourself a LOT. If you've felt like you've hit a wall with your abilities you'll be able to blast through it and learn so many new things. There is still room for improvement. I would love to see a more intuitive version of the simple chord progression recording ability. I have high hopes for all future updates and this app is seemingly only going to get better.

10/10 guitar app, replaced several books.
by knowarock on 2018/11/22 08:26
ChordBank is the best guitar chord app on the App Store. It has everything, dude. It has like 16 scales, it has chords in every position key and flavor, it has a chord analyzer thingy for looking up what chord a certain fingering is, it’s got a tuner, metronome, backing tracks, and you can strum chords/pluck notes. This app is a one stop shop for any guitar player, new or experienced. Imagine having access to any chord at the tips of your fingers, then buy this app and make your dreams come true. It is worth the fifteen bucks.
OMG!!!
by PhillyShow on 2017/11/26 18:04
Downloaded this and another popular guitar teaching app around the same time and had mostly been using the other until recently. I forgot I even had this, opened the app one day and within 15 minutes learned four chords faster than in the 2 months I’d been using the other one...this app is simply amazing. I just played Amazing Grace for the first time without looking at my finger placement at all...I’ve learned those three chords by feel in just two weeks...I LOVE THIS APP!!!
I’m slowly learning how to play the guitar.
by Aaron Devlin on 2019/08/24 20:33
I love this app I’m slowly learning how to play the guitar, problem is with me I’m left handed playing an right handed guitar it’s hard to get my fingers in the right place , I wish they’re was easier way to know where my fingers go so I don’t make an mistake like learning the G Chord that’s probably the hardest chord to learn I’ve tried many times trying to figure out how to play it without making an progress I don’t have the money to pay for full version of the app so it’s kinda of hard for me to learn .
Alacarte App
by appleappssuck on 2019/08/12 05:32
When I purchased this app I expected to have access to a full featured app. That is not the case. You get the basics for the initial purchase price of around 8 bucks, then get nickeled and dimed for incremental features. I wouldn’t have minded so much If the “menu” of prices per feature were listed so the purchaser knows up front what they’re buying, but, it doesn’t become apparent until you attempt to access other features and are blocked with a pop up requesting more and more money. Having written this, I don’t deny the apps quality, I just don’t like that prices aren’t known up front.
Well worth it
by Bluwail on 2017/05/13 12:56
Very nice app good polyphonic sound. I really would like to see the ability to change chord and maintain the same position. You can cord out a simple song, however only in first position (Cowboy Chords). If you choose G on the third fret and choose F next it reverts to first position. Fix this you get a 5. Bluwail Update: you now get a 5 one of best apps in the store! Constant upgrades and attention to suggestions make this my go to Guitar app! The app is getting better with every iteration!!!
Outstanding chord and scale app
by TaylorPlayer on 2020/04/26 21:31
This is a wonderful learning tool. It has a lot of useful tools to locate scales and chords and practice them in a variety of ways. One of the best I have found. The interface is pretty easy to navigate and there are some clever functions such as integrated video lessons and flashcards. I especially like the flashcards as this was something I was going to make for myself but find that I can use the ones incorporated within the app.
Great App!!
by Basstrax on 2019/03/24 16:17
I’ve been a bass player for a long time and “dabbled” with guitar. I’ve recently been diving more into guitar and wanting to learn and build a better chord library. Found and installed this app a few minutes ago and can already tell this is going to be the most used app on my phone! The Platinum is the only way to go! I think it would be cool if the app had the ability to use alternate tunings! That’s something I like playing around with! Overall, great job!!
Really Well Done
by ghygghhtty on 2020/06/06 07:41
It’s a simple, yet extremely informative app. It doesn’t strong am you with trying to teach you the way the developer team thinks guitar should be taught. It simply takes a lot of critical information, categorizes it and makes it very accessible. I would say it’s really good for the late beginner/early intermediate player all the way through to advanced. You need to know what to look for to get the most out of these tools
Very Useful, but You Will Need the Paid Upgrade
by Disappointed-and-Annoyed on 2018/07/11 14:45
This app is an excellent tool for learning to play the guitar or adding to your skills. You need to upgrade to “Platinum” to access some essential chords and scales, but it’s worth the cost. It includes alternate ways to play each chord and all the scale positions. It also has backing tracts to play along with. The “lessons” are very basic, but good for beginners. All in all, Chord Bank is a great resource for guitarists at all levels.
Driving me crazy!!!!!!
by hiiii!!!!!!!!!!! on 2019/03/20 02:49
This app drives me crazy it’s like all apps there I can’t learn everything I want to and at the end when you delete it you just gonna be lying on the couch just annoyed and upset ok yes you won’t learn guitar in one day but if you don’t learn something it’s worthless and I can’t by it ( because I’m not an Adult) I want a app that teaches me with full access to where my mind wants to go no time limits no restrictions just me learning guitar and being successful that’s how I feel about all apps I tried out I just don’t want to write reviews for all of them but if I can’t get the tools I need I will never learn!
Best guitar🎸app ever
by Naya46 on 2018/06/15 11:14
I’ve been using this app for years and I must say it’s been a great 👍 help to me on my guitar journey. Somehow I lost access to the pro features, so I sent an email and I got a quick response from Chris and was able to get my app running perfectly again. First class customer service. Best investment ever, just get the app and you won’t regret..... highly recommend this app for every guitarist from beginner to advanced!
Well worth it
by Jewelsg88123 on 2018/08/03 15:57
I bought the full version. I'm a complete beginner, but this challenges me. I like that they teach specific chord combinations to build off of each other. I've been playing for a week, and I'm already comfortable playing 8 chords and switching between them. I'm excited to learn more. Some songs are hard at first, but it's fun to play along and get faster and faster with practice.
Best Chord App
by nowheels888 on 2017/05/11 18:25
I really like how this app shows all the interval numbers of the notes in the chord. Without that I find chord apps to be showing only a fraction of what's important to learn, and will only allow memorizing of a Lot of shapes rather than understanding the system and how to adjust one note of a chord to make a different chord. Also this app has more chord types than the others I've seen.
Terrible changes- do not use
by Jim818 on 2019/11/28 05:07
This was a nice little app to easily look up basic chords. There was a premium version but it soon went to a subscription model and while that sorta sucked you could still use it reasonably well. Recently, they decided to take the most despicable of practices from mobile gaming, a METER that runs down for every chord you look up and gate your usage unless you pay up. The rave reviews came before these mobile game mechanics ruined the app so don’t be fooled by its rating. Pass on this trash and the dev should fire whoever consulted with mobile gaming in order to turn a buck. Deleted.
This is a learning guitarist must have!
by mflagg67 on 2020/07/24 01:58
This is one of the best, most useful guitar apps for the iPad ever made for someone learning guitar or still needs to reference chords and scales. I upgraded to Platinum+ account and I love it! The AI work well with my 2nd gen. 12.9" iPad Pro while listening to my Orangewood Brooklyn acoustic or my Florentine Les Paul amped, clean or distorted, through my Boss Katana mkii head through the the built in speaker.
Best Guitar App After a Year of Experimentation
by +Aziz on 2019/06/08 18:55
I’m not the type to write app reviews but I feel that what this developer is doing is truly exceptional & making a difference in my ability to do my job as a musician. I downloaded a huge amount of apps and distilled my collection down to a few essential tools. This app is most definitely part of my toolkit!
Great app but....
by bruin22a on 2018/08/31 11:23
First of all This app totally taught me to play a lot of guitar chords very easily. Great instruction and fun to do. I was a little disappointed when I got to the end of the “barre exam” and that was it. No more instruction. I learned 15 chords or so but then was all over. There is a place with all the scales but it didn’t show how to play scales, and as a complete beginner like me would be nice
Great Resource
by Msublette1 on 2017/05/18 23:24
Friendly interface to rapidly find whatever chord you want no matter where it is on the neck. I'm an intermediate player so, I don't know all the odd chords that don't get frequent use. This app puts them at my fingertips. I haven't used the other features but they look to be well designed and easy to use.
Great tool!
by MSweatherwatch on 2017/10/26 17:48
Very helpful for new and not so new guitarists. I give it a 5 for the chords which is the reason I got it. The tuner could be improved. It’s kind of squirrelly and doesn’t work well when tuning a 12 string acoustic. It may be the shortcomings of the mic in the iPhone but if not it would be nice to have it recognize the high chorus strings.
Stop looking and download it!
by Zion2PointOh on 2017/06/09 19:11
I'll make this quick, simple and to the point. Your looking for apps that show you chords and make them easy to understand... this is the ONLY one you need! A $6.00 purchase gives you every chord in the bank. WELL worth the price! 👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾
Top notch chord encyclopedia
by Whoknew72 on 2017/08/17 14:23
I did the upgrade and really enjoy the wide range of chords available. I can plug in the type of chord I want and find it all the way up and down the fret board. I didn't upgrade high enough to get lessons but that's what I pay my teacher for.
Even a pro needs this app!
by Skyway Picker on 2017/12/05 02:01
Even though I’ve played for decades and learned hundreds of chords and songs, I use this app to find the multiple names given to unknown chords I have played or am learning. Just simple, exact and professional.
Most used guitar app, but...
by michaljohnson on 2019/05/01 17:48
I’ve really enjoyed using the paid version of this app for the Reverse Chord and Recording features. Highly recommend it! I keep having an issue that the app audio won’t play over Bluetooth - is that a bug, or am I missing a setting? Wonderful app - really appreciate it!!!
My goto App!
by Machski217 on 2019/04/08 15:50
I use ChordBank at home and on the go! Great for lessons. This app helped me better understand the guitar. I wanted to know more about what I was playing vs going through the motions. Reverse chord finder on this app identified for me what chord I was playing when I only knew the finger positions.
Great app but
by HeyGuysItsMeRyan on 2018/10/31 06:41
Metronome doesn’t work properly. Doesn’t have time signatures for 5/4, 6/4, or 7/4, and the clicks only play either 3/4 or 4/4 no matter what you choose. The 12/8 option doesn’t even have an upbeat to start a new measure. Other than that the app is really solid and worth the full price
Find that finger shape
by Conetipper on 2018/04/18 21:55
I found this app to help with remembering those uncommon chord shapes. Easy to use interface and it is easy to move up the neck to see if that song would be easier to play in another position.
Real good app but can use some changes
by Steve-O-Bro on 2017/05/23 23:14
One of my favorite apps for chords. One main request for the app, please allow for alternative tunings for the chords. It would be absolutely amazing to see the shapes for dropped tunings such as Drop D and Drop C along with dropped standard tunings!
Extremely useful
by SuperAVPplayer on 2019/06/08 06:54
I use the reverse chord finder to experiment and find new voicings. They added a tuner that you could set to drop tunings or alternate tunings but i wish they added a feature that would adjust the chords to an alternative tuning
Notes disappear
by CW868 on 2018/07/29 19:20
🙁Hoping a bug fix would be available for notes in my practice section that don’t work..i paid for the full version of this app and while I’m very happy with the decision the fix would easily give this app a 5 Star rating.
Allowing custom choices
by JimiO on 2017/10/11 01:09
Nice updates, we are getting there. A bit off of on the reverse chord lookup tho. It would be a great feature to add 3 note per string custom feature for all modes of all Major positions as well as exotic scales, in selecting which fret to start on, etc. It would be an great feature to select a fret for chord voicings and get the options from a particular fret as well, custom configuration of the voicing and inversions👍
Excellent guitar companion app
by Lovelylyn11 on 2017/05/17 14:47
This app is permanent on my iPad. It is highly useful for determining chord names, and for "tweaking" chords to give them a slightly different sound or an unusual chord voicing. The app gets updates fairly frequently; the app designer is committed to constant improvement.
UPDATED
by tcdav26 on 2020/03/13 02:14
I’m really love this app! I’m just confused because I had already bought the pro version , now there is a subscription thing? Hope I get a reply. UPDATE: Chris with support was able to fix my issue! Great customer service! GET THIS APP!
Too much pressure to upgrade
by Ebobman on 2020/04/28 11:54
I couldn’t change chords without a pop-up. I don’t know if this happened for everyone, but it’s pretty annoying. Other than that, it seems like a cool app. I’ll never really know since I’m deleting it. Being able to at least click around for more than 5mins without being asked to upgrade would have been nice.
Worth it for the “Genius” feature alone
by Wayzon on 2017/12/30 14:07
This app is a great quick reference, but the best feature is the suggested chord progressions or “genius” feature. I hope they enhance the learning feature over time.
Awesome
by Flo243567 on 2017/11/19 20:58
This app has always been great and now that I have access to its new features it's even better. The customer support from my personal experience is pretty fantastic too!! This app rules!
Decent app
by Axiomagical on 2019/02/07 17:28
It does the trick, but there are other, far cheaper apps that are better. For the price you pay to unlock features, you should be getting more. I have been very pleased with Chord!; it’s a one time (cheap) purchase that provides everything this app provides, and a lot more (save for jam tracks).
Chord bank
by RiRobM on 2017/06/25 18:44
Really good app, shows you all the chords at every fret, chord progressions etc. Gives you lessons, scales and more. Even has a part where you punch in the chord you're playing and it'll tell you what the chord is. Wish it showed the power chords though.
Essential
by No thanks 78 on 2019/11/13 00:56
This is an amazing app for guitar players. Highly recommend it, the paid features for the full version of chords and scales are worth it! Customer support is highly responsive as well.
Good, but not how I like it
by Damianpichardo1711 on 2020/05/17 23:55
This is a good app, but I’m not saying not to download it or anything. I’m saying the screen is not how I like it, others should really give this app a try, they might learn cool songs or songs hat are very hard to play. I just don’t like how the screen is.
Easy intergraded perfection
by Ikeisaaic on 2018/01/05 18:54
Actually decent Jam tracks, scales in every possible configuration, tuner, chords galore, circle of 5ths, complete with lessons for not only a better understanding of guitar, yet an easier, way less lame way of learning to jam with scales.
FKJing rip off
by 치킨커피 on 2020/06/19 19:06
This kinda sit used to cost $1.99~9.99 back when clouds and netflix didn't emerge yet. Now it costs 4.99 a month??? It costs as much as Google drive space. FKJing developers these days don't know that they are destroying the future of consumer software industries. What some dumb bunch of untalented guitarists who don't even know their cretdit card is checking $60 a year for what they use like a couple times a year. What an insane world, man.
Useless unless you pay
by Fender>Gibson on 2017/08/14 00:12
Just a warning - Only the most basic of chords are free. If you want to pay $.99 for each kind of chord (6, 7, diminished and so on and that $.99 adds up) then it's a great app. I wish they had an add supported version or a 2 day trial of the full version then a flat unlock fee.
A clean, user-friendly app for guitar chords
by JenniLilyBee on 2017/05/19 19:55
I'm learning guitar, when I'm practicing I can easily look up any chord I need. No bugs, nice-looking interface, fast and organized visually. Great app.
WONT LET ME FIND CHORDS
by roger sprecco on 2020/01/08 21:43
Do I have to buy the pro version? The app let me look up a couple chords, but now when I try to do anything on the app an ad for the pro version pops up. I click later or x on it to make it go away but it keeps popping up. It seems like I HAVE to buy the pro version. Which is pretty stupid. Also you guys don’t have anywhere to be contacted besides here which is also pretty stupid.
Could you some improvements
by AhJess on 2017/09/15 21:51
A aug on fifth fret is missing as well as a few chords. It'd be nice to have an option to save your own chords or select and submit missing chords through the app for approval.

Description
Learn and look up guitar chords and scales. Play electric and acoustic guitar, right on your iPhone or iPad. Record riffs, and share them with friends. Full fingerings show you which fingers to put where, with barres clearly labeled to get you up and down the fretboard. Built-in guitar video lessons help you go from zero to guitar hero, taught by professional musicians. Know how to play it but not what it's called? Reverse ChordFinder mode lets you tap the fretboard and identify any of the thousands of chords inside of chordbank®. Clean, clear interface makes choosing chords a snap. Full left handed support for all fingerings. Strum to hear any chord played from gorgeous, crisp audio samples. Sounds great from the iPhone speaker, or headphones to brush up on chords in private. Many of chordbank®'s features are free but, for just $4.99 per month, less than even a single set of guitar strings, a chordbank® Pro subscription provides full access to thousands of chords in all keys, scales and scale patterns, backing tracks, a library of video lessons recorded by professional musicians, and more. If you decide to purchase a subscription to chordbank® Pro, an initial payment will be charged to your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of each subscription period, at a rate of $4.99 per month. You can turn off auto-renewal at any time via your iTunes Account Settings.

Excessive money charges
by DKUSAret on 2020/09/25 22:46
Stop charging me g FB or this app. I’m uninstalling now.
Bruh moment
by Fric Off on 2020/09/21 23:01
The app straight just stops working after a certain amount of taps and it pushes its premium version on you constantly
Wish it recharged
by thomas#720 on 2020/09/21 20:24
With there was a way to practice more without paying
Monthly fee
by another human like you on 2020/09/20 05:05
I would happily pay a one time fee of $50 for this app. Make me sign up for a monthly fee? You’re not getting a dime.
Garbage
by Ameyli on 2020/09/14 09:47
Pretty much unusable in the ‘free’ version The number of CONSTANT pop ups and ‘notifications’ for you to buy the premium are beyond extreme. Looks elsewhere for aother guitar app.

$5 a week. The features are high quality, but I simply cannot justify spending $5 a week for chord charts.
This app is awful
by Mamaitos de mamores on 2020/07/07 18:41
You have to pay for everything, chords sounds very bad, bad it has a very bad quality. It’s reload very slow and it socks.
Now with... GAMES?
by aintnoneleft on 2020/06/24 02:52
This has been a pretty decent and useful app. But now they’ve decided to add games to it? Truly a “jump the shark” moment.
Give and give some more
by Tkrug on 2020/06/21 12:28
This app is $60 per year. It’s a nice looking app, but I don’t believe it’s worth it.
FKJing rip off
by 치킨커피 on 2020/06/19 19:06
This kinda sit used to cost $1.99~9.99 back when clouds and netflix didn't emerge yet. Now it costs 4.99 a month??? It costs as much as Google drive space. FKJing developers these days don't know that they are destroying the future of consumer software industries. What some dumb bunch of untalented guitarists who don't even know their cretdit card is checking $60 a year for what they use like a couple times a year. What an insane world, man.
Really Well Done
by ghygghhtty on 2020/06/06 07:41
It’s a simple, yet extremely informative app. It doesn’t strong am you with trying to teach you the way the developer team thinks guitar should be taught. It simply takes a lot of critical information, categorizes it and makes it very accessible. I would say it’s really good for the late beginner/early intermediate player all the way through to advanced. You need to know what to look for to get the most out of these tools
I’ve never touched a guitar before 5 star
by n.lopez_18 on 2020/05/22 04:36
This is the first free app that actually helped me tune my guitar without confusing me like every YouTube video and other apps I used. I was so excited when I realized I sounded like the man in the video and then I could finally learn songs without being out of tune!!!😆😁😁I never write reviews on apps but this one finally deserved it I was way too hype not to write one.
Good, but not how I like it
by Damianpichardo1711 on 2020/05/17 23:55
This is a good app, but I’m not saying not to download it or anything. I’m saying the screen is not how I like it, others should really give this app a try, they might learn cool songs or songs hat are very hard to play. I just don’t like how the screen is.
Too much pressure to upgrade
by Ebobman on 2020/04/28 11:54
I couldn’t change chords without a pop-up. I don’t know if this happened for everyone, but it’s pretty annoying. Other than that, it seems like a cool app. I’ll never really know since I’m deleting it. Being able to at least click around for more than 5mins without being asked to upgrade would have been nice.
Outstanding chord and scale app
by TaylorPlayer on 2020/04/26 21:31
This is a wonderful learning tool. It has a lot of useful tools to locate scales and chords and practice them in a variety of ways. One of the best I have found. The interface is pretty easy to navigate and there are some clever functions such as integrated video lessons and flashcards. I especially like the flashcards as this was something I was going to make for myself but find that I can use the ones incorporated within the app.
GARBAGE
by Kick the buddie playr4786 on 2020/04/12 17:16
You are only able to learn two of the easiest chords C and G and you have to pay for the rest. Zero stars.
P
by Plevek on 2020/04/07 21:36
Excellent app! Very easy to use. I like that I can sound the strings individually.
Misleading
by ChrisTracker on 2020/04/04 14:53
Why does the description say $19.99 for 12 month pro version, but when you download the app it says $4.99 per month? I would like the pro version, but not at $60 per year. This is very misleading.
I used to love this app but...
by caethewolf on 2020/03/30 23:43
Now I literally can’t do anything on this app because every time I try it asks me to pay money so this app is not actually free!
Why the Change ???
by Jpitsme on 2020/03/29 00:57
I use to love this app, I bought it back when it first came out. Now all of a sudden if I want to have full access to the stuff I use to use I have to pay $4.99 a month, or watch another add, I don’t think so, I will look for another app! Why does everyone have to be so greedy. A one time charge should be sufficient.
No support for Multitasking
by James R Martin on 2020/03/14 00:38
Please update the app to be able to use split screen and multitasking on the iPad. App only works in full screen
UPDATED
by tcdav26 on 2020/03/13 02:14
I’m really love this app! I’m just confused because I had already bought the pro version , now there is a subscription thing? Hope I get a reply. UPDATE: Chris with support was able to fix my issue! Great customer service! GET THIS APP!
I don’t buy many apps...
by Jjgay on 2020/03/06 03:10
I bought this app though and it’s amazing.
great format, awful paywall
by you STOLE fizzy lifting drinks on 2020/02/25 05:18
I’d be willing to pay a one time fee, but some garbage subscription makes me want to kill myself
Purchased the year 14.99 subscription and it won’t let me use the pro version
by Jruizz24 on 2020/02/20 19:09
Also made an account with the app and when I try to contact customer service it says I don’t have an email linked with my account.... really frustrating i love the app but it isn’t working right...
Sorry I updated
by 10Rob32 on 2020/02/16 23:12
It was ok until I updated, nothing but popup ads now, nerfed and WAY WAY WAY TOO expensive so deleting is the best option...
Dev Blew it with “meter”, ads, & new $ubscription model
by FB jumps shark on 2020/02/14 19:28
Used to love it. Paid for it. Now VERY limited access (dreadful “countdown meter”) plus ads unless u pay monthly fee. Bummed.
Functionally Useless as a Free App Now
by Dinho2a on 2020/02/11 07:07
To get any mileage out of this app now requires a monthly subscription fee, which the app previously didn’t. Decent app otherwise but just have us pay up front why don’t ya instead of the monthly gouging
App works, but developers are greedy
by tommy522 on 2020/02/05 01:45
The app used to be free, with purchases of new chords and scales, now it’s a subscription to even use it and the chords I purchased awhile ago are just gone, saying I now have to pay monthly.
No songs
by gdshisyusfhjdfigstuhskjfgvgtog on 2020/01/30 02:18
Just chords
It’s an ad farm
by Bud649 on 2020/01/29 15:30
Worked fine but devolves into an ad farm. If you want a free app go elsewhere.
Good but expensive
by alejandr1o on 2020/01/22 05:08
I like the app but I would like the caged chords all put in order so I can easily move my chords.
WONT LET ME FIND CHORDS
by roger sprecco on 2020/01/08 21:43
Do I have to buy the pro version? The app let me look up a couple chords, but now when I try to do anything on the app an ad for the pro version pops up. I click later or x on it to make it go away but it keeps popping up. It seems like I HAVE to buy the pro version. Which is pretty stupid. Also you guys don’t have anywhere to be contacted besides here which is also pretty stupid.
Great tool
by jademacrobin on 2019/12/24 05:50
Great app
Terrible changes- do not use
by Jim818 on 2019/11/28 05:07
This was a nice little app to easily look up basic chords. There was a premium version but it soon went to a subscription model and while that sorta sucked you could still use it reasonably well. Recently, they decided to take the most despicable of practices from mobile gaming, a METER that runs down for every chord you look up and gate your usage unless you pay up. The rave reviews came before these mobile game mechanics ruined the app so don’t be fooled by its rating. Pass on this trash and the dev should fire whoever consulted with mobile gaming in order to turn a buck. Deleted.
Why do you have a meter
by You not taking my nickname on 2019/11/23 13:17
I like this app but why is there a meter. I can't do anything and the app ask me to buy pro.
Essential
by No thanks 78 on 2019/11/13 00:56
This is an amazing app for guitar players. Highly recommend it, the paid features for the full version of chords and scales are worth it! Customer support is highly responsive as well.
Tuner
by Zach Hermosillo on 2019/11/09 05:38
The tuner is ok except it can’t tell between certain chords.
Wow indeed
by Timmy Put on 2019/10/26 16:56
Latest update with flash cards is quite impressive Great app!
Once was good. Now they ruined it.
by NeedMoreLeadChips on 2019/10/23 03:32
Has a new energy meter bar. Once it depletes you can’t look at different chords. Immediately uninstalled when they rolled out the update.
I’m slowly learning how to play the guitar.
by Aaron Devlin on 2019/08/24 20:33
I love this app I’m slowly learning how to play the guitar, problem is with me I’m left handed playing an right handed guitar it’s hard to get my fingers in the right place , I wish they’re was easier way to know where my fingers go so I don’t make an mistake like learning the G Chord that’s probably the hardest chord to learn I’ve tried many times trying to figure out how to play it without making an progress I don’t have the money to pay for full version of the app so it’s kinda of hard for me to learn .
Alacarte App
by appleappssuck on 2019/08/12 05:32
When I purchased this app I expected to have access to a full featured app. That is not the case. You get the basics for the initial purchase price of around 8 bucks, then get nickeled and dimed for incremental features. I wouldn’t have minded so much If the “menu” of prices per feature were listed so the purchaser knows up front what they’re buying, but, it doesn’t become apparent until you attempt to access other features and are blocked with a pop up requesting more and more money. Having written this, I don’t deny the apps quality, I just don’t like that prices aren’t known up front.
Totally Useless
by Steverzz on 2019/06/18 14:45
This app is totally useless unless you purchase it. Except for beginner chords such as G, D,C, A,E, everything else you have to pay for. Better apps and Google can give you everything for free.
Best Guitar App After a Year of Experimentation
by +Aziz on 2019/06/08 18:55
I’m not the type to write app reviews but I feel that what this developer is doing is truly exceptional & making a difference in my ability to do my job as a musician. I downloaded a huge amount of apps and distilled my collection down to a few essential tools. This app is most definitely part of my toolkit!
Extremely useful
by SuperAVPplayer on 2019/06/08 06:54
I use the reverse chord finder to experiment and find new voicings. They added a tuner that you could set to drop tunings or alternate tunings but i wish they added a feature that would adjust the chords to an alternative tuning

Most used guitar app, but...
by michaljohnson on 2019/05/01 17:48
I’ve really enjoyed using the paid version of this app for the Reverse Chord and Recording features. Highly recommend it! I keep having an issue that the app audio won’t play over Bluetooth - is that a bug, or am I missing a setting? Wonderful app - really appreciate it!!!
My goto App!
by Machski217 on 2019/04/08 15:50
I use ChordBank at home and on the go! Great for lessons. This app helped me better understand the guitar. I wanted to know more about what I was playing vs going through the motions. Reverse chord finder on this app identified for me what chord I was playing when I only knew the finger positions.
Best guitar app
by Jawbone2a on 2019/04/03 15:44
This app has built me from the ground up. It’s easy to navigate and extremely resourceful. A huge thank you to the creators. Strum away!
Great App!!
by Basstrax on 2019/03/24 16:17
I’ve been a bass player for a long time and “dabbled” with guitar. I’ve recently been diving more into guitar and wanting to learn and build a better chord library. Found and installed this app a few minutes ago and can already tell this is going to be the most used app on my phone! The Platinum is the only way to go! I think it would be cool if the app had the ability to use alternate tunings! That’s something I like playing around with! Overall, great job!!
amazing
by pamjimofski on 2019/03/24 01:45
this app is amazing !!! thats all !!
Subscription for a chords app? Are you kidding me?!
by Mandalite on 2019/03/20 03:44
The idea of applying a subscription model to an app containing chords and scales seems like a bizarre tactic to me. I suggest returning to the ownership model for this one.
Driving me crazy!!!!!!
by hiiii!!!!!!!!!!! on 2019/03/20 02:49
This app drives me crazy it’s like all apps there I can’t learn everything I want to and at the end when you delete it you just gonna be lying on the couch just annoyed and upset ok yes you won’t learn guitar in one day but if you don’t learn something it’s worthless and I can’t by it ( because I’m not an Adult) I want a app that teaches me with full access to where my mind wants to go no time limits no restrictions just me learning guitar and being successful that’s how I feel about all apps I tried out I just don’t want to write reviews for all of them but if I can’t get the tools I need I will never learn!
Decent app
by Axiomagical on 2019/02/07 17:28
It does the trick, but there are other, far cheaper apps that are better. For the price you pay to unlock features, you should be getting more. I have been very pleased with Chord!; it’s a one time (cheap) purchase that provides everything this app provides, and a lot more (save for jam tracks).
This is an AMAZING app
by ESTHERfaithLOVESit on 2019/01/05 15:54
OMG I love this app. I had a $15 iTunes gift card so I bought the lessons and I learned and memorized the song Amazing Grace 2 hours! Hahahahaha this app is AMAZING, best $10 I’ve ever spent.
Good but nickel and dime for each item.
by Pidlsquit 87$983 on 2019/01/04 22:25
Just make it a flat rate dude and you will come out way better. Competition is out there.
Absolutely love this app

Get this app
It works!
by mrskikigreen on 2018/11/24 16:33
I love this app. I have learned so much so fast. The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because there are no songs that you can learn while putting chords together.
10/10 guitar app, replaced several books.
by knowarock on 2018/11/22 08:26
ChordBank is the best guitar chord app on the App Store. It has everything, dude. It has like 16 scales, it has chords in every position key and flavor, it has a chord analyzer thingy for looking up what chord a certain fingering is, it’s got a tuner, metronome, backing tracks, and you can strum chords/pluck notes. This app is a one stop shop for any guitar player, new or experienced. Imagine having access to any chord at the tips of your fingers, then buy this app and make your dreams come true. It is worth the fifteen bucks.
Great but...

Great Learning Tool
by Mr. Johnny 24 on 2018/11/09 02:56
I had this app in my iPhone and really enjoyed it. In order to get more use out of it I downloaded it for my iPad. The bigger screen of the iPad allows me to see the whole fretboard of notes for each of the scales. There are enough scales offered to help a beginner to learn to play with some good soloing skills or to help an advanced player increase their skill set. An advanced player will probably find the backing tracks only to be OK. However for a novice player he/she will find them quite useful. The chord directory and metronome is quite useful as is the tuner. A players skill level will determine the usefulness of these straight forward lessons.
Awesome App
by Ken Taylor on 2018/11/05 12:13
Super interface, and easy to figure out. I find the scales section extremely useful as a newbie.
Free Lessons Gone
by 9262994726 on 2018/11/03 02:15
Since the newest update all the free lessons have to be payed for. I think it was great that they use to be free. The only thing this app can be used for now is tuning and that’s it.
Great app but
by HeyGuysItsMeRyan on 2018/10/31 06:41
Metronome doesn’t work properly. Doesn’t have time signatures for 5/4, 6/4, or 7/4, and the clicks only play either 3/4 or 4/4 no matter what you choose. The 12/8 option doesn’t even have an upbeat to start a new measure. Other than that the app is really solid and worth the full price

by Lapulgaluterana on 2018/09/19 01:32
This app used to be great and had tons of free content ..now all of a sudden basic stuff you have to upgrade and pay a premium ...disappointing I have to delete it now.
Love it
by jmuse53 on 2018/09/11 16:33
Great app. Very intuitive and the best reverse chord feature I’ve seen. Plus a tuner and tons of other features. Now how bout a mando chord chart?
Very useful app
by FrostyKool on 2018/09/08 21:11
With the chords and scales on here, I can stop sifting through books, looking for the right chord, and the reverse inversions are useful as well. Plus with the metronome and tuner, I’m down to one app.
Chords!
by Mcall1955 on 2018/09/06 18:50
Great resource and it fits in my pocket. I’ve used this off and on for several years.
Great app but....
by bruin22a on 2018/08/31 11:23
First of all This app totally taught me to play a lot of guitar chords very easily. Great instruction and fun to do. I was a little disappointed when I got to the end of the “barre exam” and that was it. No more instruction. I learned 15 chords or so but then was all over. There is a place with all the scales but it didn’t show how to play scales, and as a complete beginner like me would be nice
Well worth it
by Jewelsg88123 on 2018/08/03 15:57
I bought the full version. I'm a complete beginner, but this challenges me. I like that they teach specific chord combinations to build off of each other. I've been playing for a week, and I'm already comfortable playing 8 chords and switching between them. I'm excited to learn more. Some songs are hard at first, but it's fun to play along and get faster and faster with practice.
Notes disappear
by CW868 on 2018/07/29 19:20
🙁Hoping a bug fix would be available for notes in my practice section that don’t work..i paid for the full version of this app and while I’m very happy with the decision the fix would easily give this app a 5 Star rating.
Pay to play garbage.
by Scrotal Chaos on 2018/07/27 13:55
1st chord I looked up—a B7sus4, it tried to charge me money for the result. No thanks.
Great app, but could fit the screen better for portrait
by Myrkskog on 2018/07/26 04:52
iPad 9.7. This app has tons of uses and is well worth the price for the full version. My only pet peeve is the way scales don’t display properly and some of the notes are cut off until you scroll down in portrait. This may be because the same amount of notes display on the landscape mode. Take some hints from how the interface from rock smith works for scale patterns, display it so I can zoom in and out on different sections of the pattern, or view the entire fretboard. The reverse chord finder and genius are helpful for writing. I also like being able to hear every chord and note if I want. Anyways great app and hopefully they can fix the notes disappearing thing.
$15.00? Are you high??
by Mr Neptune on 2018/07/18 01:59
Great app, but if you think I’m paying $15 for it, you’re huffing paint.
Worth every penny
by Dpaulflow on 2018/07/14 18:36
Lit 🔥
Very Useful, but You Will Need the Paid Upgrade
by Disappointed-and-Annoyed on 2018/07/11 14:45
This app is an excellent tool for learning to play the guitar or adding to your skills. You need to upgrade to “Platinum” to access some essential chords and scales, but it’s worth the cost. It includes alternate ways to play each chord and all the scale positions. It also has backing tracts to play along with. The “lessons” are very basic, but good for beginners. All in all, Chord Bank is a great resource for guitarists at all levels.
Best guitar🎸app ever
by Naya46 on 2018/06/15 11:14
I’ve been using this app for years and I must say it’s been a great 👍 help to me on my guitar journey. Somehow I lost access to the pro features, so I sent an email and I got a quick response from Chris and was able to get my app running perfectly again. First class customer service. Best investment ever, just get the app and you won’t regret..... highly recommend this app for every guitarist from beginner to advanced!
Great app
by GCdog on 2018/06/07 06:15
Great for any level of guitarist.
Why are the chords reversed?
by qualitasrebus on 2018/05/26 19:07
Suddenly the apps showing all of the chords and the strings in reverse...?whats going on? I had to reinstall it to get the chords and strings back in the right order.

by ShellyMQ on 2018/04/24 13:21
This is an insanely useful app, especially for an intermediate guitar player. This is the first time I have ever paid the full price to get an app. It was worth it. Great job.
Find that finger shape
by Conetipper on 2018/04/18 21:55
I found this app to help with remembering those uncommon chord shapes. Easy to use interface and it is easy to move up the neck to see if that song would be easier to play in another position.
Complete rip off
by J3b_ on 2018/03/19 07:25
You can only see basic chord shapes, if you want to see anything like m7 you will have to upgrade... waste of time
Misleading information
by Jglanc on 2018/03/17 20:39
You only get basic chord information. You have to pay for additional chords (Bflat7 chord is an additional cost). This is not clearly explained.
Awesome App!
by Caseclosed33 on 2018/03/03 03:00
If intervals were able to show on all positions of scales it would be perfect. Very nice!

Best guitar app about chords and scales!!!! Love it!!!!
I love this app
by Rube4 on 2018/01/15 23:27
This app is fantastic. I have been using it for years. I love the growth that has come along with the app. It never stops teaching me something new. I catch myself just practicing how chords sound together in my spare time away from a guitar instead of playing games on my phone. You can tell that the makers of this app really love guitar and want anyone who is interested in guitar to be able to play. It really is worth the money to buy the full app. The tutorials and access to several different chords are super helpful. However I have lost access to the entire app. I have tried restore purchases and it just spins endlessly. I still have ChordBank pro on my iPad, but it’s reverted on my iPhone. Big bummer. It’s such a great tool to just have in my pocket. Update: Ok, so after a email and a very quick response Chris was able to get my app working correctly for me. Hands down great customer service.
Easy intergraded perfection
by Ikeisaaic on 2018/01/05 18:54
Actually decent Jam tracks, scales in every possible configuration, tuner, chords galore, circle of 5ths, complete with lessons for not only a better understanding of guitar, yet an easier, way less lame way of learning to jam with scales.
Worth it for the “Genius” feature alone
by Wayzon on 2017/12/30 14:07
This app is a great quick reference, but the best feature is the suggested chord progressions or “genius” feature. I hope they enhance the learning feature over time.
Even a pro needs this app!
by Skyway Picker on 2017/12/05 02:01
Even though I’ve played for decades and learned hundreds of chords and songs, I use this app to find the multiple names given to unknown chords I have played or am learning. Just simple, exact and professional.

Best ten dollars I've ever spent
by Freshprinceofbethel on 2017/10/18 01:59
This is probably now one of my favorite apps of all time. It's extremely easy to use and very helpful in finding new chords for beginners. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn the guitar because you will be able to teach yourself a LOT. If you've felt like you've hit a wall with your abilities you'll be able to blast through it and learn so many new things. There is still room for improvement. I would love to see a more intuitive version of the simple chord progression recording ability. I have high hopes for all future updates and this app is seemingly only going to get better.
I love this app
by Rube4 on 2018/01/15 23:27
This app is fantastic. I have been using it for years. I love the growth that has come along with the app. It never stops teaching me something new. I catch myself just practicing how chords sound together in my spare time away from a guitar instead of playing games on my phone. You can tell that the makers of this app really love guitar and want anyone who is interested in guitar to be able to play. It really is worth the money to buy the full app. The tutorials and access to several different chords are super helpful. However I have lost access to the entire app. I have tried restore purchases and it just spins endlessly. I still have ChordBank pro on my iPad, but it’s reverted on my iPhone. Big bummer. It’s such a great tool to just have in my pocket. Update: Ok, so after a email and a very quick response Chris was able to get my app working correctly for me. Hands down great customer service.
10/10 guitar app, replaced several books.
by knowarock on 2018/11/22 08:26
ChordBank is the best guitar chord app on the App Store. It has everything, dude. It has like 16 scales, it has chords in every position key and flavor, it has a chord analyzer thingy for looking up what chord a certain fingering is, it’s got a tuner, metronome, backing tracks, and you can strum chords/pluck notes. This app is a one stop shop for any guitar player, new or experienced. Imagine having access to any chord at the tips of your fingers, then buy this app and make your dreams come true. It is worth the fifteen bucks.
OMG!!!
by PhillyShow on 2017/11/26 18:04
Downloaded this and another popular guitar teaching app around the same time and had mostly been using the other until recently. I forgot I even had this, opened the app one day and within 15 minutes learned four chords faster than in the 2 months I’d been using the other one...this app is simply amazing. I just played Amazing Grace for the first time without looking at my finger placement at all...I’ve learned those three chords by feel in just two weeks...I LOVE THIS APP!!!
I’m slowly learning how to play the guitar.
by Aaron Devlin on 2019/08/24 20:33
I love this app I’m slowly learning how to play the guitar, problem is with me I’m left handed playing an right handed guitar it’s hard to get my fingers in the right place , I wish they’re was easier way to know where my fingers go so I don’t make an mistake like learning the G Chord that’s probably the hardest chord to learn I’ve tried many times trying to figure out how to play it without making an progress I don’t have the money to pay for full version of the app so it’s kinda of hard for me to learn .
Alacarte App
by appleappssuck on 2019/08/12 05:32
When I purchased this app I expected to have access to a full featured app. That is not the case. You get the basics for the initial purchase price of around 8 bucks, then get nickeled and dimed for incremental features. I wouldn’t have minded so much If the “menu” of prices per feature were listed so the purchaser knows up front what they’re buying, but, it doesn’t become apparent until you attempt to access other features and are blocked with a pop up requesting more and more money. Having written this, I don’t deny the apps quality, I just don’t like that prices aren’t known up front.
Well worth it
by Bluwail on 2017/05/13 12:56
Very nice app good polyphonic sound. I really would like to see the ability to change chord and maintain the same position. You can cord out a simple song, however only in first position (Cowboy Chords). If you choose G on the third fret and choose F next it reverts to first position. Fix this you get a 5. Bluwail Update: you now get a 5 one of best apps in the store! Constant upgrades and attention to suggestions make this my go to Guitar app! The app is getting better with every iteration!!!
Outstanding chord and scale app
by TaylorPlayer on 2020/04/26 21:31
This is a wonderful learning tool. It has a lot of useful tools to locate scales and chords and practice them in a variety of ways. One of the best I have found. The interface is pretty easy to navigate and there are some clever functions such as integrated video lessons and flashcards. I especially like the flashcards as this was something I was going to make for myself but find that I can use the ones incorporated within the app.
Great App!!
by Basstrax on 2019/03/24 16:17
I’ve been a bass player for a long time and “dabbled” with guitar. I’ve recently been diving more into guitar and wanting to learn and build a better chord library. Found and installed this app a few minutes ago and can already tell this is going to be the most used app on my phone! The Platinum is the only way to go! I think it would be cool if the app had the ability to use alternate tunings! That’s something I like playing around with! Overall, great job!!
Really Well Done
by ghygghhtty on 2020/06/06 07:41
It’s a simple, yet extremely informative app. It doesn’t strong am you with trying to teach you the way the developer team thinks guitar should be taught. It simply takes a lot of critical information, categorizes it and makes it very accessible. I would say it’s really good for the late beginner/early intermediate player all the way through to advanced. You need to know what to look for to get the most out of these tools
Very Useful, but You Will Need the Paid Upgrade
by Disappointed-and-Annoyed on 2018/07/11 14:45
This app is an excellent tool for learning to play the guitar or adding to your skills. You need to upgrade to “Platinum” to access some essential chords and scales, but it’s worth the cost. It includes alternate ways to play each chord and all the scale positions. It also has backing tracts to play along with. The “lessons” are very basic, but good for beginners. All in all, Chord Bank is a great resource for guitarists at all levels.
Driving me crazy!!!!!!
by hiiii!!!!!!!!!!! on 2019/03/20 02:49
This app drives me crazy it’s like all apps there I can’t learn everything I want to and at the end when you delete it you just gonna be lying on the couch just annoyed and upset ok yes you won’t learn guitar in one day but if you don’t learn something it’s worthless and I can’t by it ( because I’m not an Adult) I want a app that teaches me with full access to where my mind wants to go no time limits no restrictions just me learning guitar and being successful that’s how I feel about all apps I tried out I just don’t want to write reviews for all of them but if I can’t get the tools I need I will never learn!
Best guitar🎸app ever
by Naya46 on 2018/06/15 11:14
I’ve been using this app for years and I must say it’s been a great 👍 help to me on my guitar journey. Somehow I lost access to the pro features, so I sent an email and I got a quick response from Chris and was able to get my app running perfectly again. First class customer service. Best investment ever, just get the app and you won’t regret..... highly recommend this app for every guitarist from beginner to advanced!
Well worth it
by Jewelsg88123 on 2018/08/03 15:57
I bought the full version. I'm a complete beginner, but this challenges me. I like that they teach specific chord combinations to build off of each other. I've been playing for a week, and I'm already comfortable playing 8 chords and switching between them. I'm excited to learn more. Some songs are hard at first, but it's fun to play along and get faster and faster with practice.
Best Chord App
by nowheels888 on 2017/05/11 18:25
I really like how this app shows all the interval numbers of the notes in the chord. Without that I find chord apps to be showing only a fraction of what's important to learn, and will only allow memorizing of a Lot of shapes rather than understanding the system and how to adjust one note of a chord to make a different chord. Also this app has more chord types than the others I've seen.
Terrible changes- do not use
by Jim818 on 2019/11/28 05:07
This was a nice little app to easily look up basic chords. There was a premium version but it soon went to a subscription model and while that sorta sucked you could still use it reasonably well. Recently, they decided to take the most despicable of practices from mobile gaming, a METER that runs down for every chord you look up and gate your usage unless you pay up. The rave reviews came before these mobile game mechanics ruined the app so don’t be fooled by its rating. Pass on this trash and the dev should fire whoever consulted with mobile gaming in order to turn a buck. Deleted.
This is a learning guitarist must have!
by mflagg67 on 2020/07/24 01:58
This is one of the best, most useful guitar apps for the iPad ever made for someone learning guitar or still needs to reference chords and scales. I upgraded to Platinum+ account and I love it! The AI work well with my 2nd gen. 12.9" iPad Pro while listening to my Orangewood Brooklyn acoustic or my Florentine Les Paul amped, clean or distorted, through my Boss Katana mkii head through the the built in speaker.
Best Guitar App After a Year of Experimentation
by +Aziz on 2019/06/08 18:55
I’m not the type to write app reviews but I feel that what this developer is doing is truly exceptional & making a difference in my ability to do my job as a musician. I downloaded a huge amount of apps and distilled my collection down to a few essential tools. This app is most definitely part of my toolkit!
Great app but....
by bruin22a on 2018/08/31 11:23
First of all This app totally taught me to play a lot of guitar chords very easily. Great instruction and fun to do. I was a little disappointed when I got to the end of the “barre exam” and that was it. No more instruction. I learned 15 chords or so but then was all over. There is a place with all the scales but it didn’t show how to play scales, and as a complete beginner like me would be nice
Great Resource
by Msublette1 on 2017/05/18 23:24
Friendly interface to rapidly find whatever chord you want no matter where it is on the neck. I'm an intermediate player so, I don't know all the odd chords that don't get frequent use. This app puts them at my fingertips. I haven't used the other features but they look to be well designed and easy to use.
Great tool!
by MSweatherwatch on 2017/10/26 17:48
Very helpful for new and not so new guitarists. I give it a 5 for the chords which is the reason I got it. The tuner could be improved. It’s kind of squirrelly and doesn’t work well when tuning a 12 string acoustic. It may be the shortcomings of the mic in the iPhone but if not it would be nice to have it recognize the high chorus strings.
Stop looking and download it!
by Zion2PointOh on 2017/06/09 19:11
I'll make this quick, simple and to the point. Your looking for apps that show you chords and make them easy to understand... this is the ONLY one you need! A $6.00 purchase gives you every chord in the bank. WELL worth the price! 👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾
Top notch chord encyclopedia
by Whoknew72 on 2017/08/17 14:23
I did the upgrade and really enjoy the wide range of chords available. I can plug in the type of chord I want and find it all the way up and down the fret board. I didn't upgrade high enough to get lessons but that's what I pay my teacher for.
Even a pro needs this app!
by Skyway Picker on 2017/12/05 02:01
Even though I’ve played for decades and learned hundreds of chords and songs, I use this app to find the multiple names given to unknown chords I have played or am learning. Just simple, exact and professional.
Most used guitar app, but...
by michaljohnson on 2019/05/01 17:48
I’ve really enjoyed using the paid version of this app for the Reverse Chord and Recording features. Highly recommend it! I keep having an issue that the app audio won’t play over Bluetooth - is that a bug, or am I missing a setting? Wonderful app - really appreciate it!!!
My goto App!
by Machski217 on 2019/04/08 15:50
I use ChordBank at home and on the go! Great for lessons. This app helped me better understand the guitar. I wanted to know more about what I was playing vs going through the motions. Reverse chord finder on this app identified for me what chord I was playing when I only knew the finger positions.
Great app but
by HeyGuysItsMeRyan on 2018/10/31 06:41
Metronome doesn’t work properly. Doesn’t have time signatures for 5/4, 6/4, or 7/4, and the clicks only play either 3/4 or 4/4 no matter what you choose. The 12/8 option doesn’t even have an upbeat to start a new measure. Other than that the app is really solid and worth the full price
Find that finger shape
by Conetipper on 2018/04/18 21:55
I found this app to help with remembering those uncommon chord shapes. Easy to use interface and it is easy to move up the neck to see if that song would be easier to play in another position.
Real good app but can use some changes
by Steve-O-Bro on 2017/05/23 23:14
One of my favorite apps for chords. One main request for the app, please allow for alternative tunings for the chords. It would be absolutely amazing to see the shapes for dropped tunings such as Drop D and Drop C along with dropped standard tunings!
Extremely useful
by SuperAVPplayer on 2019/06/08 06:54
I use the reverse chord finder to experiment and find new voicings. They added a tuner that you could set to drop tunings or alternate tunings but i wish they added a feature that would adjust the chords to an alternative tuning
Notes disappear
by CW868 on 2018/07/29 19:20
🙁Hoping a bug fix would be available for notes in my practice section that don’t work..i paid for the full version of this app and while I’m very happy with the decision the fix would easily give this app a 5 Star rating.
Allowing custom choices
by JimiO on 2017/10/11 01:09
Nice updates, we are getting there. A bit off of on the reverse chord lookup tho. It would be a great feature to add 3 note per string custom feature for all modes of all Major positions as well as exotic scales, in selecting which fret to start on, etc. It would be an great feature to select a fret for chord voicings and get the options from a particular fret as well, custom configuration of the voicing and inversions👍
Excellent guitar companion app
by Lovelylyn11 on 2017/05/17 14:47
This app is permanent on my iPad. It is highly useful for determining chord names, and for "tweaking" chords to give them a slightly different sound or an unusual chord voicing. The app gets updates fairly frequently; the app designer is committed to constant improvement.
UPDATED
by tcdav26 on 2020/03/13 02:14
I’m really love this app! I’m just confused because I had already bought the pro version , now there is a subscription thing? Hope I get a reply. UPDATE: Chris with support was able to fix my issue! Great customer service! GET THIS APP!
Too much pressure to upgrade
by Ebobman on 2020/04/28 11:54
I couldn’t change chords without a pop-up. I don’t know if this happened for everyone, but it’s pretty annoying. Other than that, it seems like a cool app. I’ll never really know since I’m deleting it. Being able to at least click around for more than 5mins without being asked to upgrade would have been nice.
Worth it for the “Genius” feature alone
by Wayzon on 2017/12/30 14:07
This app is a great quick reference, but the best feature is the suggested chord progressions or “genius” feature. I hope they enhance the learning feature over time.
Awesome
by Flo243567 on 2017/11/19 20:58
This app has always been great and now that I have access to its new features it's even better. The customer support from my personal experience is pretty fantastic too!! This app rules!
Decent app
by Axiomagical on 2019/02/07 17:28
It does the trick, but there are other, far cheaper apps that are better. For the price you pay to unlock features, you should be getting more. I have been very pleased with Chord!; it’s a one time (cheap) purchase that provides everything this app provides, and a lot more (save for jam tracks).
Chord bank
by RiRobM on 2017/06/25 18:44
Really good app, shows you all the chords at every fret, chord progressions etc. Gives you lessons, scales and more. Even has a part where you punch in the chord you're playing and it'll tell you what the chord is. Wish it showed the power chords though.
Essential
by No thanks 78 on 2019/11/13 00:56
This is an amazing app for guitar players. Highly recommend it, the paid features for the full version of chords and scales are worth it! Customer support is highly responsive as well.
Good, but not how I like it
by Damianpichardo1711 on 2020/05/17 23:55
This is a good app, but I’m not saying not to download it or anything. I’m saying the screen is not how I like it, others should really give this app a try, they might learn cool songs or songs hat are very hard to play. I just don’t like how the screen is.
Easy intergraded perfection
by Ikeisaaic on 2018/01/05 18:54
Actually decent Jam tracks, scales in every possible configuration, tuner, chords galore, circle of 5ths, complete with lessons for not only a better understanding of guitar, yet an easier, way less lame way of learning to jam with scales.
FKJing rip off
by 치킨커피 on 2020/06/19 19:06
This kinda sit used to cost $1.99~9.99 back when clouds and netflix didn't emerge yet. Now it costs 4.99 a month??? It costs as much as Google drive space. FKJing developers these days don't know that they are destroying the future of consumer software industries. What some dumb bunch of untalented guitarists who don't even know their cretdit card is checking $60 a year for what they use like a couple times a year. What an insane world, man.
Useless unless you pay
by Fender>Gibson on 2017/08/14 00:12
Just a warning - Only the most basic of chords are free. If you want to pay $.99 for each kind of chord (6, 7, diminished and so on and that $.99 adds up) then it's a great app. I wish they had an add supported version or a 2 day trial of the full version then a flat unlock fee.
A clean, user-friendly app for guitar chords
by JenniLilyBee on 2017/05/19 19:55
I'm learning guitar, when I'm practicing I can easily look up any chord I need. No bugs, nice-looking interface, fast and organized visually. Great app.
WONT LET ME FIND CHORDS
by roger sprecco on 2020/01/08 21:43
Do I have to buy the pro version? The app let me look up a couple chords, but now when I try to do anything on the app an ad for the pro version pops up. I click later or x on it to make it go away but it keeps popping up. It seems like I HAVE to buy the pro version. Which is pretty stupid. Also you guys don’t have anywhere to be contacted besides here which is also pretty stupid.
Could you some improvements
by AhJess on 2017/09/15 21:51
A aug on fifth fret is missing as well as a few chords. It'd be nice to have an option to save your own chords or select and submit missing chords through the app for approval.
