About Guitarron Finger Chart
This is an application to help upcoming music teachers that want to learn to play Mariachi or for students that want to learn how to play a guitarron.
You are probably asking what a Guitarron is. A Guitarron is a bass instrument used in a Mariachi group and has 6 strings which are A-D-G-C-E-A. Most string instruments require for a single string to plucked, such as a guitar and a bass. A Guitarron requires two strings to be plucked in order to get the required sound. For music theorists out there just think of playing octaves just on different strings.
The purpose of the Application I created is to illustrate finger positions. The finger charts are a rough estimate and are not intended to be precise. A Guitarron does not have frets therefore the illustrations cannot be precise. This is an instrument in which you will need to rely and train your hearing to obtain the correct pitch.
This App provides the following:
1. Real Audio of a Guitarron when clicking on a given note
2. Visually placement of fingers
Important note: This is the first version to be placed into production and there are sound limitations. The sound on phone speakers tends to be weak or not loud enough. It is recommended to use headphones to optimize the Audio.
