Music is an art and a science. Music notes, reading sheet music and music theory are some of the vital aspects that a musician should know by heart. Knowing the different scales there are in music is a very important subject too.
A music scale is any set of music notes ordered by fundamental frequency or pitch. There are music scales for jazz music or for rock music. A music scale defines the type of music you are listening.
This app is great for anyone looking for guitar scales. Actually all the scales contained in this app are useful for all music instruments and for anyone interested in singing.
You don´t need much music notation knowledge to use this app. Knowing music notes and what semitones and tones are is enough.
Great to have access to these rhythms with tempo adjustable tempo to boot and nice for any percussionist to learn something new.
The easiest way to access, listen and learn the Iqa'at (Rhythms) of Arabic Music.
- Contains over 50 Iqa'a grouped in categories.
- Contains 5 Rhythms Categories including Sha'abi (Folk), Khaligi, Dabke, Taqsim and Muwashahat.
- Rhythms played on different percussion instruments of the Middle East, like Derbake, Riqq, Bandir and Tabl Baladi, depending on the specific rhythm.
- Each rhythm has auto loop on in order to practice the rhythm.
- Contains a Help page for the users who are not familiar with Staff notation or musical symbols
Note: - All the rhythms are showed and played in skeleton form, as the app goal is to learn the rhythms rather than playing rhythm with another instrument

- Have a common or a strange instrument and want to know how to make chords on it?
- Want to be surprised by smart fingering alternatives that you never thought of?
- Want to experiment with tuning your strings differently?
Much more than a chord finder, a universal chord computer that knows the preferences of humans! ChordLab shows you easy and great-sounding fingerings (tabs) for any chord, for any fretted string instrument (chordophone), real or imaginary, and for any tuning you wish.
No matter if it's a Guitar or a Chinese Liuqin... No matter if it's a Mariachi Vihuela, an Italian Chitarra Battente, or even an instrument invented by you! No matter if it's with a standard tuning or any tuning you decide to experiment with. ChordLab is the expert for every situation.
• Choose from many predefined or custom instruments.
• With a few taps, you can change the tuning of any instrument.
• If it's not there yet, create your own instrument in just a few seconds!
• Choose from 288 chord combinations, including anything from basic chords to folk and jazz chords.
• ChordLab instantly shows you the right fingerings (tabs) with lots of smart alternatives that may surprise you!
• On the top you will see the fingerings/tabs that are easiest and will sound better on your instrument.
• You can duplicate, save, and delete instruments.
• Screen layout optimized for phone, small tablet and big tablet (see screenshots or video).
• No ads! No permissions or internet connection required!
ChordLab is an intelligent universal (multi-instrument and multi-tuning) chord finder that incorporates human preferences in the process of creating tabs. It works for any (real or imaginary) commonly fretted chordophone (string instrument). Commonly fretted chordophones are characterized by having frets in one semitone intervals that start at a common position (called nut).
The example instruments and tunings already present when app is installed:
• Guitar - Standard, Drop D and Irish DADGAD tunings
• Bass Guitar
• Portuguese Guitar
• Mandola and Mandocello
• Ukulele and Banjolele - Standard and Ancient tunings
• Trichordo, Tetrachordo and Irish Bouzouki
• Tenor Banjo - Standard and Irish tunings
• Plectrum Banjo
• Lute (Spanish Laúd) and Bandurria
• Cavaquinho - Standard and Ancient tunings
• Mexican Vihuela
• Jarana Huasteca

The same developer is also behind a 8-bit game for learning music theory with listening excercises. So big props for thinking outside the box and am curious what will pop out later from his mind...
Music Scale Sudoku is the first app ever to combine Sudoku and Music Scale Theory. Mastering scales is a fundamental skill in the study of music. A solid understanding of scales makes the study of melody, chords, and harmony easier. It also helps improve your ability to remember and compose music.
Combining Sudoku and music scales is the perfect way to practice your ability to spell scales. The solution method doubles as an exercise in spelling scales.
Music Scale Sudoku features the 11 most common major scales: C, F, G, Bb, D, Eb, A, Ab, E, Db, and B.
There are 6 puzzles for each scale plus a random mode that creates over 600 variations of the existing puzzles.
Each puzzle has been verified to contain no advanced Sudoku techniques. The goal of this app is to teach you scales over advanced Sudoku techniques.
The game also features a tutorial on how to spell major scales.
Buttons double as a keyboard so that you can play along to the background music!
Great idea to combine 8 bit gameplay with learning musical theory in my opinion.

Developers Note: My goal with this game is to introduce fundamental music concepts that tend to get ignored because they aren’t as “fun” as playing your instrument. I also want to make music theory more approachable and show that it’s a tool to enhance music, not to label things as right or wrong. No app can be fully comprehensive on the subject and I encourage the user to seek as many sources of musical information as possible.
The developer have made apps before focused on learning and theory for guitar.
This one being the latest and for free until Friday.
He also made a lot of videos that should be of interest for any guitar player out there.
I did destroy my fingers over-practicing guitar two weeks ago, so have not used this app yet...
Yapps wanted to practice an hour a day but got so excited lately with the guitar that it became around three hours of steel string guitar and now paying the price. It have made me kind of depressed as my guitar playing started to sound real good...
But as the fingers recuperate hopefully in a week or so more, want to see if this can help me theory wise.
Why is it that many video courses, guitar lessons, guitarists, apps and tutorials explain the concept of modes for guitar over and over again? Because they are very useful of course, but somewhat fail as one usually ends up with fretboard diagrams filled with dots and patterns and it all seems like a big intellectual challenge to memorize all positions at once, all keys, all strings… so many different combinations, and how to make them sound musical and flow through them without sounding like a robot is going up and down a scale?
We believe the solution is learning through intuition and repetition with carefully designed objective oriented practice routines. Time is important, so optimizing your practice time is essential to make progress and stop wasting time.
This approach to learning the modes of the major scale for guitar is simple and effective, just play along a practice routine for 10 minutes a day and the whole fretboard will start to open up for you. The routines cover all seven modes of the major scale parallel to each other in the key of C. We are approaching guitar fretboard visualization in 3-string shapes that cover only one octave, which makes them easy to manipulate, instead of large 6-string shapes, CAGED, 3 notes per string or other conventional shapes. This process will allow you to always keep in mind the intervallic relationship of the note you're playing against the root. Basic modal theory is included and we focus on the 7 modes of the major scale: Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian.
- New effortless approach to learning music theory and skills
- Fly through the 7 Modes of the Major Scale
- 21 well designed guitar practice routines for daily practice
- 14 Backing tracks/modal loops with advanced audio pitch-shifting, tempo variations, and an equalizer
- Fully featured tab section with zoom, fast scrolling, loops, tempo and tonality change
- Modal Music Theory
- Built-in Metronome

There is a lot of chord apps for guitar on the Play store but this one is definitively my favorite.
It is straight to the point with a clear interface. Choose root and chordtype to the left and press a picture showing how the fingering to hear the chord being played and having the chords shown on a graphic fretboard in the bottom.
Do not hurt that it is for free and no pesky ads!
If you are a guitar player think that this will be enjoyed and of great help.
MobiDic Guitar Chords is an illustrated chord dictionary for acoustic and electric guitar containing about 5000 chords with realistic sound. All examples are shown along with a picture, which provides the best view for left hand positioning.
Its interface allows quick access to the desired chord through lists with tonic and chord types, and even a search engine. This app, developed by brazilians, was tested and approved by great musicians like Yamandu Costa, Nelson Faria, Daniel Sá, Gustavo Assis-Brasil, among others!
