This application is released by popular demand!
From the time of Edward Van Halen, Two Handed Touch (THT) and tapping technique has advanced far. THT technique is known since 1932. It is also being used by bass guitarists. THT arpeggios are included in the repertoire of many modern guitarists. We hope that with our application you will be able to do it the same way! Not all arpeggios performed easily. Choose for yourself the inversion, which is convenient to you.
THT arpeggios can be used in many different music styles. Here are some names who use THT technique: Francesco Fareri, Michael Angelo, Greg Howe, Joey Taffola, Michael Romeo, Chris Broderick, Tony MacAlpine and others.
Fonexsis offers a lot of innovative ideas by THT arpeggios. Here you will find arpeggios that perform on 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 strings. Needless to say, the closer the strings to the neck, the better.
Why this application is recommended for a beginner? Because the sooner you start to play THT arpeggios, the less time you need to become a virtuoso.
We recommend that you perform arpeggio with 2 (middle), 3 (ring) and 4 (pinky) fingers of right hand, because you hold a pick between the thumb and index finger. However, you can use all your fingers that you find comfortable.
With this app, you will learn how to perform crazy incredible arpeggios. Over time, in future updates we will be adding new arpeggios for you.

Even though this is on sale from $24.99 to $19.99, it is still quite an investment. The app promises to teach me all the fancy two hands on the neck solo arpeggios that Eddy Van Halen popularized ages back. I can do the basic thing ... but I'd sure impress myself if I knew ( or had bothered ) to work out a few more patterns than two I got from a magazine somewhere. But twenty bucks?
Developers Fonexsis have quire a stable of apps along these same lines ...see below...
...with names like "Guitar Modes Symmetry School" ( $24.99 ), "Sweep Picking Guitar Arpeggios" ($24.99) and "Quartal Harmony Guitar" ($19.99). Wow. The Gui looks like dots on strings but there seems to be preview sounds with different instrument tones to select and play along with.
The only try-out app in the series is Guitar Chords LE which is a nice app, but just a chord library with 80 or so chords. The user can tap on the chord name to use a dial up selector to choose a chord and receive a choice of fingerings, plus a well sampled audio playback of the chord. It's good. But I'm wary of spending $25 for something I don't think I'd get much use out of ( got to be realistic ). But you might be different and the information therein could be invaluable.
Check out the free LE version and if you like it skip dinner next Friday and get your Quartal Harmony on!
