Chords and Scales can be constructed at any position and in any key on a full Guitar fingerboard. Over 900 Chord diagrams show the notes, degrees and fingering for all shapes from basic Major, Minor, Diminished, Augmented, or Seventh shapes, then Extensions and Altered Notes can be added as required. All positions are shown using the "CAGED" system. Inversions for 7, M7, m7 and dim7 "Drop" chords can also be selected with 3rd, 5th or 7th Bass notes.
Scales of different types are available, including Modes and Relative Modes, and notes, degrees or fingering at different points on the fingerboard are shown in any key, using the"CAGED" system. Standard or alternate vertical fingering (across the fingerboard) or horizontal fingering (along the fingerboard) are included.
Scale-Chords are included to help select chords for song writing, improvisation, key changes and modulation in any key. Major Scale-Chords are contrasted with Modal (including the Natural minor, i.e., Aeolian), Melodic and Harmonic minor Scale Chords, as well as Dominant Sevenths and Diminished Chords for each degree of the scale. A Circle of Fifths is also included for easy reference in any key.
The fingerboard can be played with individual notes, Chords, Arpeggios, or automatically in different Strum rhythms and finger-styles, which are indicated on the fingerboard as the chords or scales are playing. Tempo can be adjusted as required. Arpeggios can be played up or down the chord or scale, in sequences or intervals, or at random.
Instruments can be changed at anytime by choosing from high quality samples of 96 Midi Instruments for Chords, Scales and Songs, and in Percussion mode, all 53 Midi percussion sounds.
Having explored the possibilities of Chord and Scale generation, it is also possible to Record, Save, Load, Edit and Playback Chord Sequences, Melodies, or even a Solo in quantised time. Melodies are played back with Tab notation and most musical symbols can be incorporated when entering music on the built-in editor. Chord sequences can be recorded and played back with any Strum style, which can be changed during playback. The chords are shown above the Tab when playing the Melody. A number of example Songs are included, which can be edited and saved.
Different Drum styles are available, from a simple Metronome to a full 12 Bar Blues sequence. Drum and Strum styles are editable, and can also be saved or loaded, using a simple, easy to use "drum machine".
