Real good, learning a lot

Testme1234's Review of Guitar Sight Reading Trainer

Very cool for practicing sight reading and learning the guitar fretboard. Nice and customizable to focus in on particular things I might want to work on, like certain strings or identifying notes on the staff versus by note name. Quizzing and practice is such a great way to learn. Sorry if some of the writing in this review is funky, I broke my wrist, hence my interest in apps for working on guitar now. This is one my favorites I've found.

Like app, but it could be better

This app could be better if you could actually plug your guitar in like Amp Tube, so you could train your fingers to find the notes along with your ears to hear them. I was looking at the different tuning you have in the app. Because I want to play a pedal steel and I thought if u could add the C6 and E9 tuning and add more string it would be nice because it is little bit harder to find stuff on the pedal steel !!!!

Quite An Amazing Start

I used this app for 5 seconds, and have seen quick improvement already. Keep working on this! Features maybe like a melody trainer would make this perfect. Also, please make it easier to touch the open string options; it can be a pain at the moment.

Exactly what I needed

I am an intermediate guitar player and I find this app very useful. The developer responds within an hour or so to all my email questions and requests for changes to the app and is genuinely interested in fixing any problems. The folks writing the negative reviews--and several reviews contained good points--really should send him an email to discuss the changes. I did it and he's already submitted a update based on my idea to Apple for release. Btw, I am not affiliated with the developer. I'm just giving an honest review based on my experience.

The fret board is not realistic

Semitraiddo's Review of Guitar Sight Reading Trainer

Reviewed on 12/15/18 1:09 PM

Guitar player never looks at the fret board the way it is presented in this app. unless the guitar is hanging on the wall or lying on guitarist knees as a horizontal slide guitar. That is why visually the perception of the fret board is confusing and essentially not helping to develop the right skill. Other apps have more realistic presentation of the fret board in "perspective". Please make an option to change the fret board presentation. In new version I like tapered guitar better, I would advice developer to keep working on the fret board presentation. Fret grouping is a little awkward. Should be 0-5, 5-7, 7-10, 10-12. Four stars for now.

High quality sound?

Pizmo si's Review of Guitar Sight Reading Trainer

Reviewed on 12/15/18 1:09 PM

I have not had an opportunity to use this app much but one glaring difference between the claims of the app and what the app actually does is the "high quality nylon sting guitar sound. It actually sounds like a $20 synthesizer. I would never mistake it for a nylon string guitar. I am sure that this app will help me learn the fret board more quickly and easily. What I don't like is the misrepresentation of the writer of this app.

Very good, but a little monotonous

Pavementii's Review of Guitar Sight Reading Trainer

Reviewed on 12/15/18 1:09 PM

The app does what it is supposed to do and quite well. I'm a little astonished actually. My guitar sight reading has improved 150% in less than 24hrs! I went from 30% accuracy to 75% in less than a day. In all fairness, I was warmed up with an app called NoteBrainer though. Like that app, this app could use a game and scoring option. So you can at least compete against yourself for a predefined set of time. Check out Notebainer to see what I'm talking about. Other improvements: better sound quality and is there an option to learn scales? Other than that i cant believe I'm site reading guitar! Fantastic job. Keep up the good work.

Lean6T's Review of Guitar Sight Reading Trainer

Reviewed on 12/15/18 1:09 PM

I'm in the process of going back and cleaning up some neglected skills. About a month with this $3.00 app, and I'll be closer to where I'm trying to go.I figure that"s quite a bargain for $.10 a day. I even spent 2 years going to Berkleemusic online; I know my fretboard in every way, know my scales, can hold my own in any mix, yet I managed to get behind in my reading ability thanks to the crutches that are better known as tabs. Enough!!! Schools out. Great app. Lots of room for growth for the beginner to the person just looking to sharpen their skills. Incorporate chords next please. The basic ones are easy to figure out in notation; need help with the tensions. Lol.

Helpful app

This app is great for learning and all you need instead of a ten dollar guitar book! Great app but should include chords too
