Chord Tutor Lite

A free version of our Chord Tutor app is now available to download on the App Store.

If you don’t already know Chord Tutor is a tool to aid in learning musical chords, be it on a guitar, piano or any instrument. What its not, is a chord library or simple chord flash card app, its much more than that. Chord Tutor uses an enhanced version of the Chord Detection technology developed for our Chord Detector app to tell you if you played a chord correctly on your instrument.

The full version of Chord Tutor includes 48 different chords to practice, expandable up to 96 via the soon to be released chord expansion packs. Select which chords you want to practice or select a difficulty level and you are away. You will be presented with a random chord and given 10 seconds to play that chord on your instrument. When the time is up Chord Tutor will analyse what you played and give you an accuracy and speed rating. A High Score table helps you track your progress, making chord practice not only easy but fun!

The lite version of Chord Tutor gives you a taster of the features on offer in the full version. Only 6 basic chords are available to practice in the lite version.

Chord Tutor is already being used by Guitar Instructors around the world as a fun way to aid chord memorisation and warm ups. Even advanced guitar players enjoy Chord Tutor for the addictive nature of the app when trying to get the highest scores.
