Boston, Massachusetts – Ninebuzz Software, a leading developer of music education apps, today is proud to announce the release of Modal Buddy for iOS. Modes are advanced musical scales that allow a guitar player to create more engaging melodies and improvisations. With Modal Buddy, Ninebuzz aims to overcome the challenges of traditional learning methods with a more fun, friendly and interactive mobile trainer.
The mastery of modal theory is generally regarded as the mark of a world-class player and the elusive next step for the intermediate. Modal Buddy clarifies what modes are, how they are made and provides guitarists a way to instantly apply their skills with ready-to-go backing tracks.
“Mobile is the perfect platform for exploring the mechanics of modal scales in a way that just isn’t possible with non-interactive text or video,” says Rick Belluso, Co-founder of Ninebuzz Software. “Most guitarists we spoke to said modes are complex and difficult to learn. However, in our research we realized the real problem is that they’re incredibly hard to teach. I’m so proud to share Modal Buddy with guitarists because it – like a conscientious teacher – focuses on the whole experience of learning, not just the material. Overall, it offers a faster, clearer, more rewarding path to next-level playing.”
The new app has numerous features including an interactive jam tool, zoomable scale charts, a checklist-style theory section, rich content, audio examples and a beautiful, intuitive design.
