Learn to play guitar by ear using this ear training app - by using your real guitar! Guitar Ear Training is a relative pitch ear training game that is designed to help you master how to hear, recognize and play melodies, intervals, triads, and chords progressions on your guitar. The way you play Guitar Ear Training is via your real guitar! Guitar Ear Training will play musical questions in the form of notes, melodies, and chord progression. You will answer the questions using your guitar. Your iPhone/iPad will listen to your answer(s) and provide feedback. Each answer to the musical questions will appear on the screen as note or chord diagrams. You will see the diagrams in green if you answer correctly and in red if you answer incorrectly. Each game has multiple levels. Level 1 of each game only has two possible correct answers. Each additional level adds a new possible answer to the game.

Each game was designed to work on a specific ear training skill in a musical context. The skills learned will apply directly to the music you are learning or creating. As you advance through the levels of each game, you will be amazed at how quickly you begin to naturally and instinctively recognize the notes and chords being played. You will be able to directly apply these new skills to any music you are listening to or learning and will be able to play back what you hear on your guitar. The reason Guitar Ear Training is so effective is because you are using your guitar to play the game. By doing so, you are training your hands to instinctively go where your ear hears.

Guitar Ear Training was created by an amateur guitarist that was frustrated by not being able to keep up with the pros he was privileged to play out and jam with. These pros could effortlessly play songs after just listening to them on the way to the gig or better yet, they could play music they had never heard before on stage and create interesting parts on the spot. The amateur had to spend countless hours memorizing and practicing the the songs on the set list. If there were any mid-song changes while on stage, the amateur was lost! What the amateur quickly realized was that the pros were not necessary playing difficult riffs and cool chops, but they could hear and play music as if they were talking...instinctively! They could always play the right notes at the right time. Their hands would instinctively go where their ears heard. They could speak the language of music.

Out of the frustration of not being able to keep up with these pros, came Guitar Ear Training. The premise is simple; an App that can teach you to effortlessly and confidently hear and instinctively play music on the guitar in any setting. Whether on stage, writing, recording or just jamming with friends, Guitar Ear Training's goal is simple. If you can hear it, you can play it.

Does it work? Yes! After just a few weeks of play testing during the development stages this was proven! For the first time ever, the amateur was on stage while a new song was added to the set list. He immediately knew the chords that were being played and how to improvise with them!
