Display the position of notes, chords and scales on the fretboard of virtually any stringed instrument.

Everything else is a copy! FretBoard started it's life in 1998 as an application for Palm devices. Over the years there were many improvements and additions. And here we are with the largest database of chords and scales, and the most supported instruments and tunings in the AppStore. FretBoard - the real thing.

FretBoard is a reference tool for players of the stringed instruments supporting Guitar, Banjo, Bouzouki, Bass (4, 5 and 6 string), Mandolin (4 and 5 course), Violin, Viola, Cello, Lute, Viola da gamba, Baroque Lute, Ukulele, Dobro, Charango, Lap Steel Guitar, Pedal Steel, Dulcimer, all Chapman Sticks, all guitars and bass guitars tuned and set up for two-handed tapping, alternative guitar tunings and many other exotic instruments like Timple Canario, Huapanguera, Cuatro Puertoriqueño, Jarana Jarocha or Cavaquinho.

Currently FretBoard holds a collection of 170 instrument tunings in 15 instrument groups, and can visualize 68 chords and 83 scales on these instruments. FretBoard has an immense amount of music theory packed in a simple and intuitive interface guaranteeing fast access and easy understanding.

Features of FretBoard:

* Display the position of notes on the fretboard of virtually any stringed instrument (currently FretBoard sports 167 different tunings for instruments from 3 to 14 strings).

* Display chords in every key (68 chords are in the database).

* Display scales and modes in every key (83 scales, including church modes, Jazz, Blues, Bebop, geometrical and world music scales in the database).

* Two informative and detailed landscape views – one to display notenames – one to display intervals.

* Add or delete notes of scales or chords with a simple tap.

* The only app calculating the correct enharmonic spelling for notes in scales and chords.

* Orient the neck in whichever direction you prefer – right hand and left hand orientation included.

* Optional display of fretmarkers (inlays). The instruments database now holds fretmarkers positions for most of the instruments.

* Skin support. You can choose from several woods, strings and inlays to personalize the look of the landscape view.

* When you quit the current view is saved as the new default.

FretBoard is the best tool to enhance your knowledge about chords and scales making it easy to look them up in seconds and play them on your instrument. FretBoard offers you the most complete set of chords and scales and is currently the only software on the iPhone and iPod touch to calculate correct enharmonic spellings!

Please be informed, that this app is not iPad native! Maybe we will add iPad support with a later release, but for now this one is iPhone/iPod Touch only. This is why we still do not sell it as an iPad app... ;-)

What's New in Version 1.9.1

If you like to support the further development of FretBoard, please leave a rating and comment in the AppStore. If you have problems, please email developer@mennigmann.com. We usually get back to you within 24 hours.

CHANGES
We added 3 new tunings:
• Bill Leavitt Steel Guitar
• Mandocello
• 7 course Renaissance Lute


CHANGES in v1.9:
This version eliminates several annoying bugs that were around in the past months. FretBoard is now under active development again and this is only an interim update on our way to v2.0 to give you the best user experience until we are ready for the next big thing...

With this release we add iOS 6 compatibility, fixed some graphic glitches, fixed wrong fret numbers when swapping the nut, and finally FretBoard will save it's state again when you quit the app.

3/5 stars

Melodic minor...

:
The melodic minor is essentially Aeolian mode with a sharp 6th and 7th in the ascending form only. The descending melodic minor should revert to the flat 6 & 7. It may be a more difficult programming problem, but having "Melodic Minor" sound the same ascending & descending is just wrong.

4/5 stars

Nice App for The Chapman Stick et al.

:
I would like to see FretBoard become a Universal app to support the iPad, with navigation available in landscape view as flyout menus.

3/5 stars

1.7 Instrument Selection Issue

:
With this update, I can no longer scroll down to the bottom of the instrument groups in settings - making Warr Guitar and Individual Tunings inaccessible. The 3-star rating is based on this new issue. I'm running the app on a 3G under iOS4.

I had hoped with this update that the author would migrate away from the copyrighted/trademarked groupings for the various touch guitar setups and tunings. You don't have to own a Chapman Grand Stick, for example, to have mirrored fourths. No effect on the rating, however.
