When the Guitar fret board layout is selected (which shows you the positions of the song playing on a guitar fret board), the only layout options are:


When 'right' is selected, the fret board is actually upside down. Explanation.

If learning to play from another guitarist, the guitar is usually in the 'right' layout, but the positions of the cords / notes are in the same reference to yours (albeit, on the right).

For example, the 'D' cord, is the bottom three strings (looks like a 'D' actually). On the 'right' layout, it shows these on the 'top' three. In a sense, upside down.

It would be awesome, if the layout of 'right' could be flipped, so that the strings are layed out as though viewing another player across from you.

Would this be possible?

ACtually, it is 'left' mode that shows it as though another person is across from u, not right ;)

Never mind…

+1 for an option to reverse upside down

So wee would have a Rigth/Left button AND a an UpsideDown checkbox

And I will add my wish :
Jazz guitare have their marks on case 3/5/7/10…
Not on case 3/5/7/9…

An option for that would be soooo great :)

Yes I agree, the strings are upside down. The fretboard should be as if another player is sitting across from you....Right now it is upside down and very confusing!!
