A web app to help practice modes, learn chords, and chart tunes for guitar and bass players.
Table of Contents
Practice Buddy is currently in development. The final product will consist of three major components: modes, chords, and charts. The components are detailed below.
Practice Buddy will allow show all seven modes and their corresponding scales. The modes are listed as intervals and actual pitches, and can be adjusted to any starting pitch.
Practice Buddy will map out chords for you. You can chose Ebm7, and the notes (and their intervals) will be displayed, along with a chart showing the chord on guitar or bass.
A database of Nashville system charts will be available for creation, retrieval, update, and deletion.
