      We can't get the US music publishers who hold the copyright in the US to give us permission.

      IanAdminIan (Admin, DigiClef) commented  · 

      @kimi - It's tied to the iTunes shop you are in. If you are able to buy through the iTunes Portugal shop you should be allowed to download. Music publishing licensing is stuck in the dark ages.

      IanAdminIan (Admin, DigiClef) commented  · 

      @Kimi - I agree it is pretty crazy. Unfortunately our hands are tied by the music publishers, and the US publishers won't give us permission.

      IanAdminIan (Admin, DigiClef) commented  · 

      The reason there aren't rock songs in the US is because we are unable to get permission from the music publishers. This is despite the fact that there are free illegal tabs (ableit low quality ones) all over the internet. You would have thought they would jump at the chance of a legal service but apparently not.

      IanAdminIan (Admin, DigiClef) commented  · 

      @Dooch - we would love to do that. The publishers won't go for it though. They haven't caught up to the modern age yet meanwhile they seem unable to stop unofficial tabs propagating around the internet.

      IanAdminIan (Admin, DigiClef) commented  · 

      @Kyrsty - The problem is that music recordings and sheet music publishing are two different things. Sheet music publishing is still operating in a backward regional licensing model. For some reason it is hard for a non-US company to get rights to publish sheet music in the US.

        Currently there is only the iPhone app. We would love to do an android version if there is enough interest.

          You are correct Ken. We aren't allowed to sell in the US yet. If you want this then please vote for our suggestion https://digiclef.uservoice.com/forums/26697-songbook/suggestions/1175707-make-more-tabs-available-in-the-us

              Version 1 of Guitar Buddy only features scales. Version 2 will be out in the next month and features downloadable content. Thanks.

                We are adding more scales soon. We are also categorizing by key, so hopefully we should achieve what you are looking for.

                    Can you give me more details. It works when we test it.

                          Any particular scales you would like to see? Are you thinking stuff like Mixylodian scales or more of the same but in different keys?

                            We are currently adding a fretboard to the app which will double as a box diagram for scales.

                                  We can certainly try. Do you have any particular tracks in mind?
