From simple major and minor chords to the more challenging augmented and diminished chords there is something to challenge every level of guitarist. Every chord is clearly presented on screen showing you where your hands should be on the fretboard and the fingering you should use for each note is also highlighted making it very easy to get your hands in the correct position straight away. One added feature of the guitar chord database is the audio samples for each and every chord so you can hear what the chords should sound like and check your chord progress.

Free Guitar Scales finder

Another great feature of this new resource is the scale database that again uses the 12 standard notes starting from C and ending on B and focuses on 12 of the most popular scales including the more straightforward major and minor scales and then provides more tricky patterns such as the mixolydian and locrian scales. There are also 3 extra variations for each scale so the possibilities for improving your guitar technique really are there for you to take as far as you want. There are clear diagrams on screen for each pattern and on the fret board you will see root notes for each scale pattern are highlighted with green circles with all other notes within those patterns shown in red.
