So say goodbye to theory books and chord charts.. And say hello to Jamn!
• Here’s how..
Go ahead and open the app, you’ll see an interface with the JAMN WHEEL and a guitar fretboard above it. The wheel’s default, the KEY of C, is displayed in a circular pattern starting at the top and going clockwise. Above the top note, C, you’ll see a BLUE BAR indicating MAJOR KEY. The scale pattern goes clockwise and ends back at that note. At 90-degrees left on the wheel you’ll see, A, and the RED BAR which indicates MINOR KEY, displayed in a circular pattern and runs clockwise ending back at A. The INNER RING shows DOTS and CIRCLES which represent the CHORDS of the key. Major chords are the solid dots, minor chords are the circles (rings), and the dim chord is the seventh (circle-dot). You can TAP any note or chord to see them displayed above and hear them sound.
Once you master the Key of C, rotate the wheel and try all other keys!
PRO ARTISTS know a lot more than the key of C or G. To standout as a unique and real artist you’ll need to know all keys and know them well. So take any of your songs and test-transpose them in a new key by rotating the wheel and observing the inner chord ring and the notes.
Open the MENU SLIDERS to display more info such as extended chords and advanced scale patterns. Touch the round grey buttons and discover more.
Select any chord, note or scale and the instrument above displays the fingering for it. SWIPE IT to display alternative instruments. Great for understanding BASS notes, PIANO notes or UKULELE notes. And making it easy to communicate your ideas to other musicians.
WHEN PLAYING WITH OTHERS each player opens the app on their device and selects the same key. Then everyone choses their instrument. By tapping on ALL NOTES (the grey round button on the right) its easy to see the key and the fingering of each note for that instrument.
• What people are saying about Jamn
“It’s a pocket-sized visual, textual, and audio music reference that stands to revolutionize guitar teaching.” — Carol Heneghan, SoundCtrl
“What Jamn is good at is helping you visualize the music; it breaks down the barriers between visual and aural creativity.” — Nathan Snelgrove, AppStorm
“Jamn is a really neat app and, hidden beneath a very intuitive and easy-to-use interface, is quite a chunk of very useful musical theory. The beauty of the app is that you don’t have to take a Music Theory 101 course to start getting something useful out of it.” —John Walden, Music App Blog
