WI Guitar™ Free is the free version of the first truly playable virtual acoustic guitar app and professional MIDI guitar controller over Wi-Fi - WI Guitar.
Based on revolutionary patent-pending sample technology, WI Guitar has the sound and expressiveness of a real steel-stringed guitar. Includes two steel-stringed guitars, a classical guitar, a 12-stringed, twelve types of electric guitars and a Core MIDI OUT guitar for using WI Guitar as a MIDI controller over Wi-Fi (Core MIDI).
Does this sound too good to be true? It is not, and we can honestly say you need to try this app to believe it! This is why we also offer a free version, for everyone who wants to try this amazing instrument!
With WI Guitar, you can strum chords as softly or as hardly as you like, with ultra-realism. Hooked up to loudspeakers, WI Guitar is the perfect replacement for a real guitar at the party, or even in a band. Use headphones to play your favorite songs on the guitar, or write songs, on the way to work, on the airplane and everywhere else.
As an artist or songwriter, you can even use WI Guitar as a professional recording instrument. Add beautiful stereo guitar parts to your tracks!
WI Guitar Free includes the four most common chords, C, F, G and Am, and the sus4 and add7 action buttons. In combination these give you instant access to a total of 16 unique chords.
PLEASE NOTE! THE OPTION "?" BUTTON BECOMES DIFFICULT TO PRESS WITH iOS 5, DUE TO APPLE'S NEW NOTIFICATIONS CENTER. WE ARE WORKING ON A FIX!

TIPS AND TRICKS
- Strumming harder or softer also makes the sound stronger or softer.
- Pluck or strum closer to the board to get a stronger sound, and play further down on the strings to get a softer sound.
- If you release all fingers from the screen, all playing notes also released. If you want chords to sustain, press and hold the chord buttons while playing.
- Hold multiple chord buttons to produce inverted chords. For example, Am + C produces an Am with a C as the bass note.
- If you want to use WI Guitar as a MIDI guitar controller on PC, please download and install Tobias Erichsen's software "rtpMIDI" from: http://www.tobias-erichsen.de/rtpMIDI_configuration.html
What's New in Version 1.13
Fixed iPad screen rotation bug, introduced with the v1.12 update
I can play a few good songs with this app, but the options are limited. It only gives you a couple cords. With the ukulele chords, I can play viva la vita ( Coldplay) little talks ( of monsters and men) and those magic changes (grease)
Over all a good app, but could use some improving.
Clumsy controls lose several stars
The settings panel is near impossible to access (the ? button doesn't work well at all) and the controls within it are far too small. This could be an excellent virtual acoustic otherwise. I understand the minimal chords available in a free app.
Am I missing something
This app is terrible, the sound is so dead. When you play a fret or chord the sound doesn't echo unless you keep your finger on it which is dumb because you are going to release for the next strum and when you do release the sound dies instantly.
