The Fretboard and the Keyboard
The Guitar Fretboard and the Keyboard
The fretboard, available for 4- to 7-strings, allows you to view and enter notes on the score.
It is able to show the notes of the current beat, but also the next beat ones, the complete bar ones, or the selected scale ones. A really great tool for beginners or mouse work.
The keyboard is also available, and has the same features as the fretboard. It can be handy for non-guitar tracks.
The Metronome and the Countdown
The metronome gives the tempo while playing a score. You can also use it alone without playing a score.
The countdown gives the tempo on an empty bar before playing the score. It gives you the time to take your instrument after having launched the playing.
