Guitar Tools help:-

Apple and Android versions

 

Chords Module:-

Play the chords 'arpeggio' style by stroking gently across the screen.

Notes are sounded and names revealed by touching individual strings or numbered buttons. Each note button displays a finger position.

Tap the yellow pick icon to hear the whole chord voice.

Swipe down on chord screen to access the next chord.

 

Scales Module:-

Play each scale by stroking gently across the screen.

Stroking across first and then up prevents accidental swiping down to the next scale screen .

Try to finish playing on a root note of the scale. Root notes have light brown buttons.

On Blues Scales the 'Blue' notes have blue buttons .

Swipe down on scale screen to access the next scale pattern.

Fret numbers are shown on the left hand side of the fretboard.

 

Circle of Chords Module:-

Play circle chords by tapping on chord buttons.

Neighbouring chords are more closely related than ones further away. Labels shown 1st, 2nd, 3rd etc refer to intervals of scale e.g. C the 1st part and Dm the 2nd part of the scale.

Based on the 'Circle of 5ths', the circles are set to 'C' but can be used to work out progressions in other keys:-

Inner circle contains relative minor chords, outer circle contains
major chords.

For example: to work in 'D' - the 1st becomes DMaj, 2nd Em, 3rd F#m, 4th GMaj, 5th AMaj, 6th Bm and 7th Db (shown as DbMaj - but in key of D would be Db diminished)

Go clockwise and play chords harmonically a 5th apart, go anti(counter) clockwise to play chords harmonically a 4th apart.

Swipe down circle screen for next chord circle..

 

Fretboard Module:-

The Fretboard map comprises of 22 frets showing the notes with audio for the entire neck of a 22 fret guitar.

Play the notes by gently stroking across or up and down the screen.

Fret numbers are shown on the left hand side of the fretboard.

Swipe up or down on the screen to scroll the fretboard.

 

Tunings Module:-

Play each tuning by stroking gently across the strings. Strings can also be played by stroking across the note buttons (buttons go green upon activation)

Use the stop button to stop the strings and audio.

Tapping an individual note button will isolate the note for tuning reference (button goes red) .

Swipe down on tuning screen to access the next tuning.

Use the tunings to train your ear and learn to match the pitch of your guitar strings to the application pitches .

After practice one should be able to notice and correct tuning inacuracies more easily.

Regularly using this method of tuning your instrument can develop your pitch recognition and can help improve musicianship markedly.

Tip: listen carefully to the beats (modulations) between the pitch of your guitar string and that of the app note. As you 'tune in' the beat will slow down as the guitar string and app pitch harmonise, as you move away from being in tune the beat will speed up, the beats disapear when the string and app pitch are in tune.

Chord Scales Module:-

Chord-Scales can be used as a starting point to create chord progressions in any key.

Play the chords 'arpeggio' style by stroking gently across the screen. Tap the yellow pick icon to hear the whole chord voice.

Swipe down each chord screen to play through the chord-scale, playing across each chord in turn.

Each key can be played through in natural chords and 7ths. 'C' Major has 9ths also.

Notes are sounded and names revealed by touching individual strings or numbered buttons. Each note button displays a finger position.
