Guitar Tools is a multi-platform application for Guitar and Bass Players of any style. It can also be used by other fretted instruments players, as you can customize the number of strings , from 3 to 10, the strings and neck appearances, and the tunings to use.

It can be used from Balalaïka and Shamisen to Pedal steel and Chapman’s Stick !

It’s a learning tool which helps you finding scales, chords, voicing, harmony and practicing.

It comes with a bunch of useful features and customization :

  • right and left handed neck,
  • different guitar and bass sounds,
  • BPM detector,
  • metronome,
  • favorites tunes,
  • circle of fifths,
  • diatonic chords and scales,
  • printing and copying the neck,

The neck can be customized to suit your own guitar : wood, inlays, inlays shapes, frets, strings shapes,… More, you can use several necks and quickly change from one to another.

You can open several windows, for example, one showing a chord and another showing the relative scale.

The favorites tunes “Player” can play almost any video or sound files.

See the screenshots and manual for more details.
