iShred starts with a set of high-fidelity guitar samples, then feeds them through eight exciting effects pedals and an overdriven amp simulator. Whether you want a clean trebly surf sound, a spacey rock lead, or an all-out metal assault, iShred delivers the goods. The sonic line-up includes these virtual stomp-boxes:

* Hot Fuzz: Get buzzed with an electrifying distortion
* Wahsabi: Tilt your iPhone to control this wah pedal!
* Sybil: Dual chorus pedal to hear your evil twin
* HK-2000 Delay: For fat slap sound or huge echo
* Kömpressör: Power chords just beg for it
* Adrenaline: Treble Booster for that extra shot
* Q-36 Space Modulator: Multi-pattern modulation
* Trembler: Get a healthy dose of Tremolo

iShred provides a playing interface that's both powerful and easy to learn. Create your songs from a huge library of over 2000 built-in chords, scales, and fret positions, by assigning them to the two rows of buttons at the top of the screen. The buttons give you immediate access to all the chords and scales you need for a song, and let you easily switch between strumming chords and playing melodies.

Has Exceeded My Expectations Beyond Words

Hasn't Been Updated In Years - Yet It Has Exceeded My Expectations Beyond Words & Still Outperforms So Many Apps.

If you're thinking about getting ANY Guitar App in the App store and you don't have this App yet? Hopefully, you'll choose this App and experience what I have. It has exceeded my expectations beyond words both while using the App as well as helping improve my learning curve when playing guitar IRL.

And yes I do love it that much and I AM gonna marry it ...

Best guitar app (almost perfect)

Superb app (as is their acoustic app GuitarStudio). I almost feel stupid making requests, but here goes: 1. Audiobus support. 2. More pages of chords - though Ishred is THE best for complex songs, I still run out of room for some Ravel and Stravinsky music. Boo hoo, i Know, but this app just gets me so jazzed to do cool things....

Secret weapon

I might be the only person I personally know that has this app,not sure if it's even been updated for a while...but I love it! Use it as a notebook for song ideas I can bring directly to my guitar players...
