    Default smart chord app

    Smart chord is an free app I use that has quite frankly revolutionised my playing. It covers pretty much any instrument with a fret board and strings. I use a custom setting on the 4 string banjo for my tenor guitar, the uke setting of course and I reset the cigarbox to tune my baritone.

    It gives a tuner for whatever instrument you choose.

    It then depending on setting gives a chord dictionary which is optionally massive. Alternatively fingering, wierd tuning not problem. Lost a finger somwhere, there is setting it.

    It even does some scales although it is eurocentric ones , they are fun to noodle about with and do free form jamming with.

    I have no connection with the company. The app is free, it is not full of ads, its doesn't fill your cache memory with junk and doesn't ask for permission for silly stuff.

    Looks cool. I found the web page, but I can't change the instrument from guitar to uke. I notice a "download" link in the menu. Any tips?

    Just tried it out. It has way more features than I bargained for on a free app. Very nice addition. Thanks!

    Anyone seen a video on how to use the arpeggio function? Or can anyone here make a video explaining it?

    I see it. I can read it. I can change the key. I just don't understand what it is for and how to use it!

    I use that app, too. For a small fee, you can unlock more functions, most of which I don't use, but could, such as a place to file and organize your music (I use ForScore on the iPad for that). One thing I do use, just to amaze myself, is the magic "what's this chord" function. This app is amazing.
