    Will this play in Windows 7? I don’t have an ipad or iphone.

  2. Matthew Warnock, October 30, 2012:

    Hi Tim, this version is only for iPad but there is one for Mac and PC desktop in the works right now, should be up shortly.

  3. Dan, October 30, 2012:

    Will this be avail for iphone?

  4. Matthew Warnock, October 30, 2012:

    Dan, that’s in the works. Because of the notation it’s too big right now for a phone, but we’re working on that for a future phone edition if possible.

  5. Andrew Baggio, October 31, 2012:

    Matt great stuff! Do you ever sleep?

  6. Matthew Warnock, October 31, 2012:

  7. Nick Fitch, November 11, 2012:

  8. Matthew Warnock, November 11, 2012:

    The app is being developed for Android and Desktop PC/Mac right now, after that we’ll be looking at the first update from there. thanks for checking it out.

  9. John Krieger, November 11, 2012:


    Great app. I can’t find out how to turn on a count-in when playing back the licks, so I’m always playing catch-up in the beginning.

    Am I missing something, or does this go on the update list?

  10. Matthew Warnock, November 12, 2012:

    Hey, there’s no count in as of yet, but if you loop the lick it will come back around at a set tempo so you can work with it that way. Thanks for checking it out!

  11. Rob, November 14, 2012:

    Great app,I’m actually now beginning to sound a bit more like a jazz player.

  12. Steve Prager, November 19, 2012:

    Matt, thanks for all the great gifts you’ve given us. I can’t tell you how often I’ve played your Bebop licks since I first tuned in. Cheers!
