Firstly I want to say that I'm not receiving any commision for promoting this.
I just think it's a good and useful product and I love playing around with it.
The software developer is is a guy called Laszlo Oroszi in Hungary
I use it for improvising practice around scales and chord sequences. Although you get a fully functioning
14 day trial, it's worth paying the small asking price. I bought it without hesitation.
What I like most is that it's really easy to use. Just choose your "Session" (chord sequence) like Slow rock,
Ballad, Polka or whatever. Then you can play this sequence in a variety of interesting styles. I
never get bored.
Also check out the totally free software called "4 chord songs" in the tools section. This
is basically a lite version of Chordpulse. It looks and works exactly the same.
There is also a YouTube demo video.
The following text is lifted straight from
the Chordpulse website.
