Anyone else using this app? I downloaded it 2 weeks ago and I'm totally addicted. Been going through my James Booker albums one-at-a-time during business trips. It's really great for internalizing the chord changes in a song.

The app analyzes any song in your iTunes library and gives you a measure-by-measure chord breakdown (lead sheet) of the entire song, it also color codes each section of the song: the intro, chorus, verse etc. Each song takes about 3-5 seconds to analyze. It's not perfect - but it does a pretty darn good job, and it's very quick to change if it's wrong.

What's neat is that once it's analyzed a song, I can play it back several times and sing/hum along to the song while visually seeing exactly where the chord changes happen. After awhile I've internalized the chord changes and can "hear" the them just by listening to the song - but now I have a very clear idea of which chords I'm hearing! Really cool!

Yamaha has done a commendable job on free music-related apps, and is clearly the market leader among piano manufacturers in this aspect. Their new Smart Pianist app incorporates Chord Tracker, Digital Piano Controller, etc.

Witness what they have done with their new CSP line of Clavinovas, as compared to the established CVP line. The former has one Function button on the piano and needs to be linked to an iPad to engage all of its functions. The CVP, on the other hand, has a screen and numerous buttons and dials on the piano to accomplish much the same thing. I generally prefer buttons and dials that directly access functions instead of multiple layers of menus on a touch screen. But the large size and color of an iPad screen, and the well-designed Smart Pianist app, make this a great alternative for those who prefer a simpler-looking ensemble piano.
