Guitar & Bass: Learning Exercises, Tuner, Tab Editor & Metronome For Fretted Instruments

There are a lot of applications, as well as web services that allow you to download and/ or listen to music. Here at AddictiveTips, we have covered a number of apps and web services (check out our compilation of top 50 web services for listening to music). Listening to music while working, or when you are taking a break from work, helps releasing the stress from your nerves. There are some people, who not only listen to music, but also like to play an instrument. The problem with playing an instrument, however, is that first you need to learn how to play it. Guitar and Bass is an application for Windows that allows you to learn how to play fret-based (stringed) instruments. It provides you with various exercises in order to practice notes, chords and scales. Moreover, it comes packed with a lot of tools such as a tuner, metronome, key finder, chord finder etc., which allow you to better train yourself. A built-in Tab (tablature) Editor can be used to edit existing tabs, as well as create new ones.
During setup, you are asked to install the SweetIM toolbar, as well as RegClean. Make sure you disable the installation options of both the applications in order to avoid installing unwanted software in your computer.
