App Description

Progression, a guitar tab editor for your iPad, gives you the convenience of an easy-to-use guitar tab creation tool right at your fingertips. An incredible app for any guitarist or bassist, Progression gives you the ability to write, edit, and playback guitar tablature or regular notation using real audio samples. You can capture your musical ideas anytime, and with the mobility of the iPad, you can take this helpful application anywhere!

With a user-friendly interface and simple, interactive entry fretboard, Progression gives even the inexperienced guitarist and bassist an abundance of functions, including but not limited to: vibrato, slides, string bending, hammer-ons, pull-offs, whammy-bar, bass slap, effects, mutes, harmonics, and more…

In addition to the tab editor you also can hear your music performed with real audio samples, giving you the most realistic playback possible. Progression comes with acoustic guitar, electric guitar, and bass guitar. You can even select to add additional instruments such as classical guitar, acoustic fingerstyle guitar, mandolin, and banjo.

You can search for tabs online directly from Progression. View some of the most popular tabs at places like Ultimate-Guitar.com or download legacy Guitar Pro or NOTION files from numerous sites that you can playback and edit.

Then once you are happy with your creation you can share your work with anyone by simply sending a file that they can view, hear, and edit. Or you can email them an image file that they can print anytime they want.
