Live Guitar is an app designed by and for guitarists. It should be useful to both seasoned professionals, and those who are just learning to play. For the pros, the app provides a simple way to record playing into notation software through a MIDI interface. It also provides a good way to explore new chords and chord progressions, and to share transcriptions. For those learning to play, the app gives a gentle introduction to the fretboard and forming chords, and makes playing a song easy. It can also help a budding guitarist see how songs are constructed. For everyone, the app is a way to get a little "guitar playing fix" when the real thing isn't available.
The app is designed to be played "live" -- notes from individual strings can be strummed or plucked, while different chords can be selected quickly through a novel multi-touch interface. Guitar tones in the app come from six different professionally sampled instruments, with MIDI connectivity providing unlimited sonic freedom through external hardware and software synthesizers.
Included with the app is a library with more than two hundred chords; new chords can be added easily. Tablature and chords can be shared over WiFi, through iTunes file sharing, or downloaded through an internal browser.
The app should work on all iPhones, iPads, and the iPod Touch, but is best suited for the iPhone 3Gs and newer, the 4th generation iPod Touch, and any iPad.
