It takes an especially well trained ear to be able to hear a song and learn it from scratch on guitar. While some musicians master this skill over time, others have struggled and wasted countless hours trying to learn new music from nothing more than a recording. Capo 3 is a cool product that looks to make learning music from a recorded track an easier and more feasible task. Capo 3, made by SuperMegaUltraGroovy Software, uses digital audio files to create musical notation so users can learn new music more quickly. The program accepts audio files in MP3, M4A, WAV, and AIFF formats. Once someone uploads a song into Capo 3, it produces musical notation by automatically detecting the chords played in the audio track. Users can make edits to the automatically detected notation if there is a mistake or if they want to add to what is already present in the recording. Those who have trouble managing the audio files on their computer should seek a home computer support service for help. Read more »

When you move to a new town or city, one of the most difficult things to handle is the lack of social connections and support that comes with all-new surroundings. However, there’s now an iPhone app and online service that attempts to solve this problem called Likemind. Likemind acts as a giant bulletin board where users can post “fliers” inviting others to speak with them if they share a specific interest. Fliers can be up to four pages long and users can creatively fill them with text and images in whatever layout they want. Each flier has a specific amount of “tabs” that another user can take in order to contact the poster. There are a limited number of tabs for each flier so if one flier is particularly popular, that user will not get flooded with extreme amounts of spam or contact requests. This cool product also allows users to filter who sees their fliers. You can limit your audience by age or gender in order to target a specific demographic if you wish. If you have trouble using the app on iOS, iPhone tech support is something you should consider. Read more »
