Apps for Guitar Players

Good evening!

There are so many great apps out there for guitar players these days, and today I'd like to share with you a few of my favorites that I use all the time on my iPhone and iPad. Note: to use Garageband and ToneStack described below, you will need a way to interface with your device. I use the Line 6 Sonic port found here.

Tempo Advance:
This is the metronome app I use to keep time. However, there are many other advanced features that can help you take your practicing to the next level. Check it out here.

Just like the same application found on Apple computers, Garageband is an easy-to-use recording program. It's great for getting your ideas down or recording full songs. It's even got built-in amp simulation so you don't need a mic to get going. Check it out here.

Just like Garageband, this app has built-in amps and effects for electric guitar. However, this one has more options and sounds particularly great in my opinion. Check it out here.

Tempo Slow:
This app lets you slow down music files that you have on your device. This is a great way to learn more challenging songs that are maybe a little too fast for you current playing level. I also use this to transcribe particularly fast or difficult passages from songs. Check it out here.

This is a fun app that you can make electronic drum beats on. There are a lot of cool drum sounds and I have used some of them to create my own music. Check it out here.
