I designed all of the guitar sounds for this great little guitar theory app.

With simple elegance and style, Chords in Keys is a pocket companion for guitarists of all levels.  Giving dial up sounds for any major key and it’s modes, this is a must for the guitar teacher.

You can see the basic chords and their relative 7 chords in their correct order for that key or mode. There are 4 choices of shape for every chord, including open and barre shapes.

You can see the structure of a chord at a glance – both it’s formula, and where the notes sit on the fingerboard.

You can hear the chord sound, and hear the individual notes within the chord.

You can bring up multiple scale patterns for any key or mode, and hear the scale play guide to the 13 major keys and their modes.
