Bass Guitar Note Trainer 4.7

Bass Guitar Note Trainer is a tool to assist in learning the 4-string, 5-string and 6-string bass guitar fretboard notes. This app provides all you need to meet this goal, in an intuitive and flexible way. It is useful as for beginners, so for those who already have basic skills and want to make them perfect.
Bass Guitar Note Trainer is an excellent choice for learning notes (English, German and Latin namings), octaves (Traditional and Scientific namings), sight reading (Treble and Bass clef), sight playing, finger memory and ear training.
The tuning of the bass guitar simulator can be customized in any way in range from C (subcontra octave) to B (2 line octave) with different sounds (clean, acoustic, contrabass).

Bass Guitar Note Trainer has 6 modes:
★ Note Explorer
★ Note Trainer
★ Note Practicum
★ Note Game
★ Note Tuner
★ Note Theory

EXPLORER MODE displays/hides notes on the fretboard or on its diagram, using various user-adjustable filters and highlighting, and also allows you to choose the explorer action for touching notes on the fretboard of the bass guitar simulator.

TRAINER MODE includes the following features:
★ Customizable trainer profile that defines area and the notes on fretboard you would like to focus on
★ Trainer can generate 9 types of questions that covers all the possibilities of identifying notes
★ Full statistics tracking for each note and totals for trainer profile: number of total question, number of correct answers, successful percent, average time of reaction and total time of training
★ Creating new trainer profile by trouble spots in the statistics

PRACTICUM MODE allows to recognize requested notes of a real instrument (also it can be set in auto-answering mode). Thus, you train both, note recollection and finger memory.
The practicum mode includes the following features:
★ Customizable practicum profile that defines area and the notes on fretboard you would like to focus on
★ Practicum can generate 7 types of questions that covers all the possibilities of identifying notes for this mode
★ Full statistics tracking for each note and totals for practicum profile
★ Creating new practicum profile by trouble spots in the statistics
IMPORTANT: To use this mode, for recognition of the notes of the instrument, you need to enable the Microphone Permission

GAME MODE offers a more efficient way of verifying the knowledge and learning the notes on the guitar fretboard by playing and having fun.

TUNER MODE is a bass guitar tuner (16-1017 Hz) that displays on the fretboard all the positions of the recognized note of the instrument and its frequency.

THEORY MODE includes basic musical notes theory and some useful charts and hints for learning the notes on the fretboard.

By using the application for a few minutes each day it is possible to quickly learn all of the notes (in any notation) on the bass guitar fretboard.

User Reviews

“I love this app. It’s so helpful to drill bass guitar ear training. Thank you devs.”

David Aleman

“This is really useful software, it’s so much better than I expected it to be. Multiple ways to learn the fretboard notes, it’s very configurable, I can simply learn the note names, or learn to match the frets to musical notes on the stave, or do that later. This app is everything I hoped it would be, well worth the small price. Thankyou developer, I’ve been procrastinating learning the fretboard notes for a long time.”

“Absolutly Great App. I just got a bass for Christmas and I’ve been looking for a way to learn notes. This app is great. It even has a simple game to help learn.”

Todd Pichler5 star

“Learn a lot. I’m surprised no one has written a review for this… I play a sixer, this is an awesome trainer/ reminder for notes on the fretboard/ staff. Give it a couple of minutes a day just to keep it internalized. Also, when I have the slightest idea what chords I’m playing,I can punch the notes on the fretboard, it tells me, I note it, and keep playing….kool. Lot’s of other things in here, if u enjoy playing, u don’t have this, u missing out. PERIOD…”


“Well thought and very useful. Very flexible with the possibility to train with many different kinds of exercises, customizable with the notes you want to train and many other things. Really good software, and better than some other paid alternatives.”
