It is so easy and simple to use: I love getting the immediate feedback on whether I am playing correctly, it's just like having a real teacher!

    "I really wanted to annoy the piss out of everyone I knew, so I grabbed a yuke (we irritating types love codenames!) and this app and I was off to the races. Using my perfect pitch I was able to instantly identify the keys of all the music around me and with Chord!
