Guitar Ear Trainer - the ear training app you play with your guitar! Guitar Ear Trainer 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 Trainer is via your real guitar!
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.
Guitar Ear Trainer 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.
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 Trainer 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.
