Hey guys,

I know this is a 3d forum, but I also know that there are a LOT of musicians in here too. Some of which use their music in their 3d animations. So I figured this would be relevant.

I'm happy to launch a new website for musicians: http://www.jamstro.com. I have actually been working on this off and on for the last year or so. It is a songwriting tool to help musicians find chords and scales that work together. It is an interactive flash program that generates maps for the three most popular instruments, Guitar, Bass Guitar, and Keys, all at the same time.

This is just public beta 1, so it's not fully developed yet. I do plan on refining and greatly expanding upon what is there. I figured it was at a useful level now though, so I got it up and running. It will likely take me another year or two to fully implement all of my ideas. I can't go into detail about all of the plans just yet. However, if you do have suggestions, or find any bugs, please contact me and let me know. There is a contact form on the website.

There is also a video tutorial demonstrating how to use the program. So please feel free to take it for a test spin. :)

Let me know what you think. If you like it, please tell any other musician friends that you might have about it too. ;)

From the screen-shot, this looks very interesting - will look forward to giving it a try out but not when I'm at work in case I get told off! :o

I've got quite a few musicial friends who might be interested too, so hopefully will be able to 'drum' up a bit of interest, if you'll pardon the pun....

What sort of bass are you getting? I've got 2, a four string and six string, plus my drums and guitars...


Dele - had a look this morning, including the tutorial and I must say very nicely done. The tutorial is very clear and well paced; getting into modes is a bit beyond my theory level but for less educated musos like me that area could be left alone anyway...

the only slight 'negative' I would suggest isthat for the main chord diagrams on the fret-boards and keyboard,the use of red and green spots for root and 'other' notes in the chord could be problematic for someone with colour-blindness, so a different colour might be better, but it's a minor quibble...


I'll definetly forward the link to some of my friends, that's for sure...

Hi Dele, I watched the tutorial. This is very useful.

Couple of suggestions:
1.) It would be even cooler if it played the progressions, chords, or notes clicked on.
2.) It needs a forum!
3.) Adding more depth to the site by having sections on music theory and songwriting would make the site even more useful and would get more hits from the search engines. Both text write ups and lesson vids would really drive up your traffic.
4.) Put up some adds and make money off the traffic.

Awesome start! :banana:

I bought a laguna bass starter pack that comes with everything you need to get started.

It seems to play real nice. I am taking lessons at www.workshoplive.com and hopefully soon I'll understand enough to be able to utilize jamstro :)
