Capo makes me smile every time I use it. The smoothness of the sound as it changes pitch and time is amazing and the fact that it analyzes the chords it hears and displays them in tablature makes it a fantastic tool for any musician. It's also just plain fun!
When I sat down and started using Capo for the first time, I was amazed at how big a punch this little app packs! It's intuitive, convenient, and high-quality. Even when adjusting the key and tempo of mp3's, the audio quality that is maintained is really refreshing. Plus, as a mandolin player, I find it endearing that there's a mandolin chord function. Way to keep it classy, Capo.
My god this is insane. What a brilliant app. I've not found a song it hasn't got the chords right. It also perfect for feeling out the right tempo of a song you've just written. Try taking it up a few bpm or 30 bpm. It may sound better!! Capo lets you know instantly.
With this great app I was finally able to go back and learn some of my old solos. Well worth the price if you serious about digging into that solo or riff that you've always wanted to take a crack at.
The chord detection is almost spot on, only missing a couple tensions in more complex fusion/jazz stuff but the basis is there. This will be a great app for musicians who are beginning or intermediate, and also good for jotting down arrangements.
Capo is a remarkable app. I have been teaching guitar for many years and I often spend too much of the lesson time transcribing songs from MP3s my students bring to the lesson that they want to learn. Capo is an amazing tool as it will generate chord progressions from mp3 files quickly so I can spend the lesson time on chord voicing, solo's and nuance. A huge advantage for the students - and for me. I can't wait for my students to start bringing Capo files to the lessons so we can spend all of our time creating - not copying.
The previous question took an overall look at the relative popularity of different chords, but we can also look at the relationship that different chords have to one another. For example, a great question to ask is, if a song happens to use a particular chord, what chord is most likely to come next? Is it random, or will certain chords sound better than others and thus be more likely to show up in the popular songs that make up our database?
This result is striking. If you write a song in C with an E minor in it, you should probably think very hard if you want to put a chord that is anything other than A minor or F major after the E minor. For the songs in the database, 93% of the time one of these two chords came next!
Veins are classically thought of as being planar fractures in rocks, with the crystal growth occurring normal to the walls of the cavity, and the crystal protruding into open space. This certainly is the method for the formation of some veins. However, it is rare in geology for significant open space to remain open in large volumes of rock, especially several kilometers below the surface. Thus, there are two main mechanisms considered likely for the formation of veins: open-space filling and crack-seal growth.
On the macroscopic scale, the formation of veins is controlled by fracture mechanics, providing the space for minerals to precipitate. Failure modes are classified as (1) shear fractures, (2) extensional fractures, and (3) hybrid fractures, and can be described by the Mohr-Griffith-Coulomb fracture criterion. The fracture criterion defines both the stress required for fracturing and the fracture orientation, as it is possible to construct on a Mohr diagram the shear fracture envelope that separates stable from unstable states of stresses. The shear fracture envelope is approximated by a pair of lines that are symmetric across the σn axis. As soon as the Mohr circle touches the lines of the fracture envelope that represent a critical state of stress, a fracture will be generated. The point of the circle that first touches the envelope represents the plane along which a fracture forms. A newly formed fracture leads to changes in the stress field and tensile strength of the fractured rock and causes a drop in stress magnitude. If a stress increases again, a new fracture will most likely be generated along the same fracture plane. This process is known as the crack-seal mechanism 2b1af7f3a8
