The new Chordmaster Application for iPhone and iTouch from Planet waves has garnered over 12,000 downloads in its first month earning it the #1 position on the Apple iTunes music application store.

The Planet Waves Chordmaster offers a comprehensive and accurate library of over 7,800 guitar chords, displaying notes and fingerings on a virtual fret board. The application allows 

you to view each chord in every position up and down the guitar neck and even strum the virtual strings to play and hear each chord. The library, separated into root, chord type and chord variants, allows you to navigate to any chord easily and quickly and even comes complete with a lefty mode for the often-ignored left-hand guitarist.

Says Jim D’Addario of the success of the application: "We must give credit to Steve Salerno who penned this library for us 10 years ago, as well as Matthew Foust who wrote this application for us. We have had some great success with our handheld Chordmaster sales over the years, so it will be fun to watch 

what the sales curve will be like over the next few weeks.” Planet Waves’ next step is a scale and arpeggio program.
