When the ten-year-old Walter Lupi picked up the guitar in 1970, nobody knew that he was headed to be part of a golden age of fingerstyle guitar. With Stefan Grossman as a guide in technique and tradition and Alex DeGrassi and John Renbourn as role models, Lupi has eventually developed an enviable diversity and depth of expression encompassing earthy acoustic blues as well as percussive modern jazz. But at the center of Lupi´s art there are pieces of Mediterranean flair and Latin grooves that sound as if the very sunlight on Italian hills had been transformed into notes. Lyrical and yet powerful, happy and wistful at the same time, full of bright colours and still of noble restraint, Lupi´s highly original and irresistible fingerstyle even captivated everybody at the 2009 Open Strings Festival – an audience famously spoiled with nothing but great guitar music.

A Walter Lupi idea, developed by Riccardo Fregonese.
A stylized compass on the hole of the guitar, to recall the "acoustic" roots of Walter Lupi, want to indicate in no uncertain terms the ultimate aim of ChordsMAP, which will help all its users to "map" a guitar fret board and then to know and identify any agreement that in fact you can play on this instrument.
To do this, all of the app's content are based on a solid theoretical basis, developed precisely by Walter Lupi during his musical experience, combined with the reading system EDCAG: a reinterpretation of the famous polyphonic cadge system.
The app provides its users a theoretical part ( "Tutor"), in which this theory is explained in detail, in a kind of digital manual with pictures, links to extra content and of course of exercises for learn to put esplicati concepts into practice.
