Customer Reviews

Nice! + suggestions

Excellent for singing a little song wherever you might be. Fun for the family to play with. Great for playing with composition ideas.

Blending chords with up to 3 fingers is very smart!

Also add a dial on playing surface to let me change keys on the fly rather than open tools, change key, close tools.

And yes, please resample the guitar sound. The sound is good but not great.

Thanks much for this great little instrument!

Simple and relaxing

Intuitive and fun. Don't forget to try multi-touch on the strings-- you can pluck as well as strum. Whack the guitar body for "percussion", if the mood strikes you.

Reviews are old, this can't be considered a serious instrument

No midi out, it doesn't sound like any guitar I've herd.. It's competition is ishred and wi guitar.. Ishred eats it alive and though the overall interface is better than wi, it doesn't have midi.. I could overlook the goofy string animations and the weird sound only if it had midi out.. Makes me sad
