GuitarParrot is a melodic ear training workout that brings the classic "call and response" game to a whole new place. Your phone or tablet! Choose your level and develop your abilities to hear notes and melodies and instantly imitate or 'parrot' them on your guitar! Why is that useful? Well, if you are a musician trying to learn songs, it becomes much easier as you connect your ear to your instrument. The random melodies GuitarParrot generates will help you break out of your practice ruts and can inspire you to discover new melodies! As an instructor, I play 'follow the leader' with students of all levels. I developed this app to expand the game beyond what a normal human could offer:

Modes - you can choose from 4-note, 5-note, Major, Minor, and Custom scales.
Keys - all 12 keys are available.
Octaves - two octave settings let you explore the neck more completely.
Levels - each level adds 4 notes to the melody. Level 20 is 80 notes long. Can you beat it? How about with a Chromatic scale?

GuitarParrot can be played on iOS or Android devices, using the built-in mic or a guitar interface like iRig or a similar device. You can also use wired headphones with or without a built-in mic. Bluetooth headphones are not currently supported.

Instead of poking a note on the screen or touching colored lights in sequence, this app makes you play your own instrument. There is no visual assistance, it requires you to play by using your ear.

This app is a practice tool that should be a part of a complete program. A good instructor will show you how to apply the scales and notes to songs you may be learning.

As your short-term memory develops, you will retain what you hear more easily and spend less time hard memorizing things!

What's New

GuitarParrot is still the coolest "random melodic ear training app" ever! GuitarParrot version 0.5.0 has many visual improvements and smarter screen sizing to make it fit all screens without sliding. Also, the phones can be in Portrait view now, not just Landscape. The UI is best in Landscape, but Portrait is no longer locked out. The Tuner has a cool new look. Everything is more cohesive. The Sound Check, Custom, and Play pages do not slide anymore, which makes it easier to adjust knobs.
