Well, considering that Guitarists generally pretty poor sight-readers, this creates 4 bars of sight-reading completely tailored to the user and amazingly useful. I created this software out of a total lack of usable real-world software for guitarists. I was tired of drawing diagrams of scales to chords and vice versa. I wanted an easy way of building runs that worked really well over a chord - and I wanted to have progressions to train them over. Well now, I have made Guitar Freak Workstation, it's the most used music software on my computer!
