It could be more helpful if...

It's odd to get one off licks that might sit in the third or fourth bar of an unnamed progression were these random chord/s might suddenly show up. It would be much more helpful if it went through full chord progressions, explain the various modes that could be used within and maybe even help compose licks.

Response from Groove3 Customer Support:

Hi there, thanks for taking the time to review this product, we do appreciate it! We totally understand where you are coming from, but the concept here is to give you a ton of quick licks to practice and experiment with, and see where they fit. This will improve your ear and hopefully discover that they can work in other places rather than the traditional places. Hope that helps. Thanks again for your review!
