If you are an intermediate or advanced guitar player, Exploring Guitar is an excellent tool for improving your skills. This program is an outstanding aid for becoming more familiar with the instrument since it allows you to find chords and scales in all notes and create your own ones. Also, you can hear those scales ando chords note-by-note in several guitar modes, like nylon-string, distortion, overdrive, electric clean, and so on.
