Apps for Guitar

Posted on

I thought I’d make a little video to show some of the apps that I use for guitar on my iPad. There’s a ton of things out there for learning guitar and this is but a few of the ones that I’ve found useful. Would love to hear about the ones other people like and use too.

    Colin – thanks for this great resource and collection of Aps! The Toolkit looks pretty sturdy… if a little overwhelming. I’ve been curious to get to know different tunings at various points in my playing, though I’ve never gotten too far past Open G (which can be a hoot, and is how Keef plays most of his Rolling Stones riffs). Even though I have a neglected hardcopy of more than thirty different tunings (each accompanied by a little backstory on their development, scales and corresponding chords, too, actually), the Toolkit might be a way to explore some alternate tunings, as well as some new scales.

    I’ll vouch along with you for the iPad Garageband – love all of the easy-play instruments, and how easy they made the touch-screen interface. Wish it had the ‘heft’ of the laptop version though, and the ability to make tracks more than a few minutes long.

    You’ve made me want to make a little video introduction to my loop pedal…

      Oh, that would be cool. Never messed with a loop, would love to see it.

    I love Guitar Toolkit, I got it years ago from a recommendation by Gardner Campbell— but I totally never saw the series tab with all the scales! I rely on it for tuning and the chord diagrams. I showed to a friend recently and noted in was $10!

    I like the free Guitar Tabs app although they seem to always be up selling; I like having the tabs favorited when I am away from network connectivity; also the feature to auto scroll and play the song if you have it in the library

    I have a fun free one called Figure which lets you make and record drum and synth tracks, stuff you could play along with.

    And Shazam is always handy for identifying a song you don’t know if it comes on the radio
