The BlueScalesTrainer was created by good motivation targets for 2019. Not loosing weight this year, but finally know where notes are on which fretboard position on my guitar to play solos.
Like everywhere, this require a lot of practice and I start direct in the AppStore looking for suitable apps. Although there is a lot dealing with Scales, it is either too much, visually too small and often not helpful for practicing. But that is the advantage as a musician and programmer, you simply program it as it is needed. Here are the key points I wanted to reach:
Thanks to my app BlueJamPlayer I already had the basis for the audio player, song analysis and control via foot pedal. I also took over the effect section, so that you can use the 7 audio effects in the BlueScalesTrainer as well.
And since I don't want to learn exotic Scales or become a full-time Scales Guru, I only implemented the main Scales Major, Minor, both Pentatonic and Blues Scales. To make it easier finding matching chords, there is an info line and also a chord list with chord images in 6 versions.
We packed all of that into our compact BlueScalesTrainer. If you like to know which Bluetooth PageTurner pedals will work, there are suggestions in the Bluetooth setup.
