      "On a professional level this macOs software is incomparable eighter for its music education quality and for its parametric control interface. It's something similar Apple Logic Pro or Final cut. It is fully parametric and, like any professional high level software, it has a little learning curve to overcome but the company provide a lot of documentation and videos and it worth a little effort. Quite impossible to enumerate all its features, go to their website and look at the videos or the manuals to get an idea. Just by clicking around the interface controls I have understood so many important music theory principles (e.g. the chords dropping concept or the correct enharmony) and, moreover, the logic governing the fretboard: the software allows you to apply this logic automatically and quickly on the instrument but, once acquired, you can apply it on the instrument by yourself, sitting relaxed on your sofa. Simply revolutionary."

      "If you want total control of scales on the fretboard this is the solution for you. You can create common or custom scales by even building them note-by-note. You can calculate Vertical Shapes, CAGED Shapes and any custom notes-per-string Shapes covering the entire universe of possibilities. You can generate modes from any scale you create and moreover compare two scales on a fretboard portion, or create chord-scales diagrams in order to link visually any scale with the related chord shapes. In my opinion a must for every serious guitarist."

      "I started learning guitars a few months ago, and, since I wanted to learn playing scales, I googled for resources, till I found this website. Unfortunately, I stopped using it right away: the lessons are too hard for me, and I wasn't able to follow them. I think I'll have to look for something else.."

      "I inherited a couple guitars from my uncle after he died. They had sat in a stand for years before I decided to finally learn how to play it. I tried following various blogs and videos but wanted something more professional to learn more about guitar scales. A coworker told me about Guitar Pro. What's great is the range of songs they have. The app is great, too -- very intuitive and easy to follow."

      "Guitar pro is just that... Pro. As a beginner, Guitar Pro was way too much for me. It's a huge software package with tons of stuff and it was overwhelming. Add to that a fairly high price and it's out of reach for me at least. There are a lot of free software packages that do almost the same."

      "I was invited to a kegger for Saturday night and I had no cash to bring any Brew 102 so I needed something to bring so that everyone wouldn't think I was a mooch. I found Chords & Scales on line and download the trial version for FREE. Within minutes I was able to take my old guitar and riff out two major chords and arpeggios. Saturday night I waited until half the booze was gone then whipped out my axe and laid those chords out there for everyone. I was the life of the party and almost got lucky that night. Thank you Chords & Scales!"

      "This app is a must for any musician. It's so much cheaper than purchasing your own chord book to refer to whenever you need to. Also a great safety blanket for when you're gigging, and especially great if you're new to jazz improv!"

      "This is pretty cool software because it's free but it's also somewhat limited. If you're even just a little proficient or you need to learn stuff beyond basic chords and scales, you might consider a different offering. Also, it windows only."
