iReal Pro has been an essential part of my Jazz & Rock 7-string guitar practice for many years. For example, I loop on chart phrases. I even used it in making recent jury videos. Customer support has been quick & helpful, both in the past & recently. This app has continued to improve over the years. I both modify the chords & names of provided charts. And make my own from scratch. I use backup to Google Drive to manually sync both my Android devices.

ideal Pro is a great tool for learning and practicing songs. I found thousands of songs` chord changes in the community forums. I love being able to shift tempo, key, or drum rhythm style for the songs I'm practicing. The mixer lets us control which instruments are turned up in the play-along tracks, and suggested chord voicings are helpful.

I would like more control over the drum beats. As an ex-drummer (now a pianist) I would love to alter a rhythm (tone, and contant) and also change rhythms for A & B sections. Update comments: I'm aware of the work involved in adding so many new beats/styles. I'm sure there are many of us that will dig into them and enjoy. I Hate to bring up anything on the down side - but I would still LOVE to have that straight a head, driving, old fashion Shuffle. I know --- I'm showing my age. Barry Tee
