    Can anyone recommend an app that will generate chords like a piano playing a Dmin7 so I can practice the different arpeggios over that chord? BITB might work but $$$$.

    Or iReal Pro. There are several threads on that. At $12.99, it's a great value.

  4. Little time at this site and you will be able to generate any chord you like --- that fish thing --- Chord Formulas

    • The Dm7 chord is made from the 1-b3-5-b7 notes of the D major scale.
    • The D major scale has these notes; D E F# G A B C# I found them here --- Chords In The Key Of D This site gives the notes and chords.
    • So a Dm7 chord is made from the D-F-A-C notes.
    • Which can be found using this box:
      • Major Scale Box.
        G|---2---|-------|---3---|---4---| 1st string
        E|-------|---1---|-------|---2---|--b3--|4th string
    Have fun.

    That too was my first thought when I read the thread title: No app should replace the knowledge & ability to construct chords.

    But reading the OP it appears that's not what he's asking. He's looking for something that will play audio (or MIDI) of whatever chords he specifies, so that he can have a robot accompanist during his practice sessions.
  6. My bad.

    To clarify, lets say you have a diminished chord to play over, but no piano or guitar player around to play the chord.
    So to "hear" what certain arpeggios, be it major or minor sound like it would be great to have an app that would play
    the diminished chord so I could hear what the arpeggios sound like. More ear training than anything else.
  9. Videos like this are all over the Internet. Perhaps this will do what you want. Click the YouTube icon in the lower right hand side of the screen for more.
