Today's app is the Guitar Interval Ear Trainer app:
Guitar Interval Ear Trainer (https://sites.google.com/site/guitarinterval/) One of the first steps in ear training is recognizing intervals which means knowing what the distance is between two notes; because every melody, chord, or scale consists of a series of intervals, this is a very useful and fundamental skill in music; app helps user to identify the intervals and learn how to find them on the guitar; knowledge of intervals on the guitar helps to figure out chord progressions more easily; reproduce melodies and get a better understanding of written music; seventeen selectable intervals, from unison, minor second through major tenth; choose between melodic and harmonic intervals, ascending and descending; graphical representation of intervals on the guitar; chord root note can be chosen over two octaves; automatic or locked portrait and landscape mode; optional voice function; practice and test modes; intervals are grouped by difficulty level; each group has six progress indicators corresponding to the different interval types including melodic ascending/descending, harmonic ascending/descending, random melodic, random harmonic/melodic; optional reference melodies for each interval can be played; in practicing harmonic intervals, the interval is classified as consonant/dissonant; more than ten alternate tunings including the NST (new standard tuning) and all fourths tuning; option to play only tapped notes; useful in figuring out melodies or trying alternate tunings; in practice mode the root can also be played as the second note in the interval; to be in line with written music, enharmonic equivalent notes are used to have classical interval names; intervals can be practiced and tested in a scale context; to strengthen the scale interval knowledge the partial scale runs of the interval can be played automatically backward and/or forward for a chosen scale; more than fifteen of the most important scales are implemented and can be visualized on the fretboard; scale notes are clustered and colored to show clearly the root note for which the interval applies; support for the right hand player, the left hand player with a right handed guitar and the left handed player with a left handed guitar; use the left handed option in settings and turn the device by 180 degrees for guitar orientation; Universal app; (iOS 9.3 or later).
