Best Realistic Guitar App
Easily the best and most realistic guitar app on the App Store for the past many years. I see a lot of reviews expecting this to be a toy or game app. There are already a lot of those apps on the market, where you play a guitar hero-type game and play along with a song or solely an image of a guitar and you tap on the strings and they automatically play chords for you. This is app DOES NOT do this. This app is a guitar simulator. I even saw reviews with 1 star stating that "this app is broken, you press on a fret and it just mutes it"... If you have ever played a real guitar, strum it, and then lightly tap on the strings... Well they are muted. Anyways, this app is wonderful. Obviously fret/screen size is an issue, so you cannot play a song that is all over the fret-board. But I can play many songs, all the way through, with fairly good accuracy with this app and I definitely get a similar feeling to playing real guitar. It's great for plucking out chords or playing with simple melodies or scales. The honest truth: it's a great guitar simulator trying to deal with screen real-estate problems and you pretty much HAVE to be able to play guitar to use this app because it's truly a guitar simulator.
Why doesn't this app have either midi out, audio export or audiobus?
I didn't want to like this app but this is by far the best feeling guitar app, neck feels natural though I wish the scrolling mechanics were more intuitive.. A lockable sidebar is better than a crappy spiral.. But if it doesn't have none of the above mentioned it can't be considered a legitimate music app, it's just a toy.. A great sounding, great feeling toy mind u but still a toy.. Idk if its cause of the price or what not but u need to put midi/audio export on this even if as an in app purchase guys.. Both surprised and disappointed :/
Great over all
I love this app and it would be amazing if you made some updates to where you can play a mode where you have to play certain notes, and you should put other virtual instruments because what if somebody wants to play a metal song but you cant get it a violent pitch? This app is amazing!!
