This is a great app--but I can't seem to get the tuning to work on my 3GS, and the support page is not helpful. Appreciate any fixing of the tuning mechanism so I can practice my 5 string EADGC tuning.
A lot of people learn to play the guitar and then move on to the bass. Because they learned to play melodies on the treble clef and chords by reading tabs they never developed good skills reading the bass clef. Bass Clef will help you develop your skills not only reading the bass clef but to know the bass guitar fingerboard and develop sight reading skills. You can learn in two ways. First there's the basic flash card exercises. Once you develop some skill reading notes with the flash cards you can move on to sight reading fingerboard exercises. To develop sight reading and further develop your fingerboard skills the fingerboard exercises will drill you with notes on the bass clef. In this exercise you'll be asked to play a note on the fingerboard within an alloted time. You'll only be drilled on the visible frets. Beginners can start with the easiest fingerboard exercises settings. Start off with the Sharps & Flats turned off, allow plenty of time to find the right note and keep the text hints on. When you're ready for more of a challenge you can limit your attempts to find the right note to a single try, turn off the hints and reduce the time to find the right note. Bass Clef shows a scrolling fingerboard with a twelve fret range. You can select a 4/5/6 string bass and play right or left handed. The sampled bass sounds give you great feedback. If you like, you can just play it like a real bass. Part of learning is feedback. Bass Clef provide two kinds of feedback. As you do the exercises it keeps track of your correct and incorrect answers for each note. As you continue on with the exercises the most missed notes are emphasized to help you with the ones you have trouble with. Bass Clef also shows your proficiency finding and identifying notes with an accuracy chart which gives you a sense of what notes you miss the most and least. Touching the note on the chart will reveal where that note is on the staff.
