New Feature – Scale Computation

I rolled out a new feature to just a few minutes ago: Now, when you are drilling a particular key and scale, the notes associated with it are shown to the right of the fingering diagram above the tab. (For example: When you are drilling a C Major scale, it will let you know that the notes involved are C-D-E-F-G-A-B-C.) I’m pretty sure I got all the flats and sharps right, but if not, I’m hoping a sympathetic user with a stronger music theory background than mine will kindly fill me in on anything I fumbled.

More features are on the way, as are another gear review and a video tutorial. You will, of course, hear about them here first.

And as always, feel free to leave your feature requests in the comments. (And before you get to it: I haven’t forgotten the bass players. is on the way as well.)

Great site and great practice item. I just need to make more of an effort to actually practice.

I’m here to help, Mike. Glad you like the new feature. There’s more on the way.

Would something like a tool for tracking your practices on a calendar help? Or perhaps a social feature to connect you with practice buddies – a way to form a sort of accountability circle?

This site is wonderful! I recommend you to all my students, and ask them to buy their amazon stuff via you, though I don’t know if they have yet. I have no specific comment on the new feature, but thought it high-time I showed my appreciation…

Many thanks

Will – I’m very grateful that you think so much of my work! Hearing that kind of enthusiasm from teachers and players is what keeps me working on GuitarCardio, even when it seems like more effort than reward.

I’ll make you a deal – you keep coming back and recommending the site, and I’ll keep making the site better!

How about a print button or any way to print out the page without the graphical borderness of the page; just the exercise?

I think that’s a great idea; it’s going to wait a little while, but I’ll put it in the queue.
