Fret Tester: Our New Online Fretboard Trainer!

The New Fret Tester!

The first game I created was Tab Warrior, probably the worst game ever created. Second I wrote Note Fish, which is still a valuable and fun game (My oldest two sons love it!). Then I created Fret Tester, some 5 years ago! After releasing Fret Tester for iPhone just this last June, I thought it was about time I redid it.

I think you’ll find the new improvements will help you master the fretboard faster than ever. I made the following changes:

  • Audio playback of the notes
  • Custom Tuning
  • Left Hand mode
  • Show your speed at finding notes as beats per minute (like a metronome)
  • Added five-string bass and Mandolin
  • Combined Guitar Flash Cards, Fret Tester, and Fret Tester Bass into one game.
  • Added new “Find Notes” mode
  • Added new “Notes on the Staff” mode
  • Made game larger and easier to use
  • Added Timed mode of play
  • Added fretboard charts for all four instruments

I’m sure there are one or two more, but you get the idea.

For those of you who may miss our old friends Guitar Flash Cards, Fret Tester Bass, and the original Fret Tester they’ll still be available. Have fun!
