Learn and look up guitar chords and scales. Play electric and acoustic guitar, right on your iPhone or iPad. Record riffs, and share them with friends. Full fingerings show you which fingers to put where, with barres clearly labeled to get you up and down the fretboard. Built-in guitar video lessons help you go from zero to guitar hero, taught by professional musicians. Know how to play it but not what it's called? Reverse ChordFinder mode lets you tap the fretboard and identify any of the thousands of chords inside of ChordBank. Clean, clear interface makes choosing chords a snap. Full left handed support for all fingerings. Strum to hear any chord played from gorgeous, crisp audio samples. Sounds great from the iPhone speaker, or headphones to brush up on chords in private. Many of ChordBank's features are free, but for $19.99 per year, or $2.99 per month, a ChordBank Pro subscription provides full access to thousands of chords in all keys, scales and scale patterns, backing tracks, a library of video lessons recorded by professional musicians, and more. For more limited access, ChordBank Basic provides access to all chords and scales in the app for a low price of $0.99 per month. If you decide to purchase a subscription to ChordBank Pro, an initial payment will be charged to your iTunes account. Your subscription will automatically renew unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription period. Your account will be charged for renewal within 24 hours prior to the end of each subscription period, at a rate of $0.99 per month for ChordBank Basic, or $2.99 per month, or $20 per year for ChordBank Pro. You can turn off auto-renewal at any time via your iTunes Account Settings.

  • Driving me crazy!!!!!!

    By hiiii!!!!!!!!!!!
    This app drives me crazy it’s like all apps there I can’t learn everything I want to and at the end when you delete it you just gonna be lying on the couch just annoyed and upset ok yes you won’t learn guitar in one day but if you don’t learn something it’s worthless and I can’t by it ( because I’m not an Adult) I want a app that teaches me with full access to where my mind wants to go no time limits no restrictions just me learning guitar and being successful that’s how I feel about all apps I tried out I just don’t want to write reviews for all of them but if I can’t get the tools I need I will never learn!
  • Decent app

    By Axiomagical
    It does the trick, but there are other, far cheaper apps that are better. For the price you pay to unlock features, you should be getting more. I have been very pleased with Chord!; it’s a one time (cheap) purchase that provides everything this app provides, and a lot more (save for jam tracks).
  • This is an AMAZING app

    By ESTHERfaithLOVESit
    OMG I love this app. I had a $15 iTunes gift card so I bought the lessons and I learned and memorized the song Amazing Grace 2 hours! Hahahahaha this app is AMAZING, best $10 I’ve ever spent.
  • Good but nickel and dime for each item.

    Just make it a flat rate dude and you will come out way better. Competition is out there.
  • Absolutely love this app

    By QuizUp addict
    Get this app
  • It works!

    By mrskikigreen
    I love this app. I have learned so much so fast. The only reason I’m not giving 5 stars is because there are no songs that you can learn while putting chords together.
  • 10/10 guitar app, replaced several books.

    By nrock2256
    ChordBank is the best guitar chord app on the App Store. It has everything, dude. It has like 16 scales, it has chords in every position key and flavor, it has a chord analyzer thingy for looking up what chord a certain fingering is, it’s got a tuner, metronome, backing tracks, and you can strum chords/pluck notes. This app is a one stop shop for any guitar player, new or experienced. Imagine having access to any chord at the tips of your fingers, then buy this app and make your dreams come true. It is worth the fifteen bucks.
  • Great but...

  • Great Learning Tool

    By Mr. Johnny 24
    I had this app in my iPhone and really enjoyed it. In order to get more use out of it I downloaded it for my iPad. The bigger screen of the iPad allows me to see the whole fretboard of notes for each of the scales. There are enough scales offered to help a beginner to learn to play with some good soloing skills or to help an advanced player increase their skill set. An advanced player will probably find the backing tracks only to be OK. However for a novice player he/she will find them quite useful. The chord directory and metronome is quite useful as is the tuner. A players skill level will determine the usefulness of these straight forward lessons.
  • Awesome App

    By Ken Taylor
    Super interface, and easy to figure out. I find the scales section extremely useful as a newbie.
