Wow that's great, thanks!

It doesn't fill the whole screen on WVGA, however. Can you fix this?

Two suggestions:

1) You could place the chords at the top like in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n23WEqqrP0I AND/OR
2) You could place the frets under the strings so that we can directly play the right notes.

Suggestion 1) would be especcially useful for the Touch HD, which has only two hardware buttons but a a lot of free space on the screen for the chords. I'd also be happy to donate/pay for your app if you could make that possible.

Again, thanks for developing that great app for WM!

On Touch HD, exactely as your piano app, it doesn't fill the screen, but this is not the worst problem: the app stays in foreground and there's no way to shut it down if not a soft reset. It looks good, but i had to uninstall both of them because of this

Sweet Guitar Sir!!!! Sticking and unsticking the chords is still a bit clunky , but the reaction time and interface is spot on.. :D

I can't speak for the guitar app, but in Omniano there is an EXIT button right in the upper middle of the screen that shuts down the program quite effectively.

Installed to storage card and tested quickly and it is fun - One bug though - Don't let S2U2 initialize while guitar running as you won't be able to unlock device - mine did and I tried to slide to unlock and all it did was play guitar strings, couldn't unlock - Didn't soft reset to get it out - not sure how but somehow through a combination of buttons I was able shut screen off and on again and get start somehow as S2U2 flashed on and off - hit it quick and got it to home screen. I wasn't worried - soft reset wouldn't have been that big of a pain. Anyway - remember to disable S2U2 to avoid the hassle. Testing further as this is fun

The program is amazing! It's not really working on my kaiser though, the sound stutters and is full of clicks. Anybody else try this app on a kaiser? Thanks for help.

Don't work for me :(
It don't play any sound, 'x' and 'reset'-button don't work, and pressing the same hardware-button a second time to set a chord isn't possible. Maybe it's my device.
I tried to use it on my LG KS20 (WM6.0).

Edit:
Ahhh.... okay.... the answer is in the post before.... I've got this MSM7200 processor..... thanks anyway ;)
