Live Guitar Announcement

Live Guitar is an iOS music app, designed to be intuitive for guitarists. It features a simplified chord selection system, to let you move from one chord to another quickly and accurately. Strum, play single strings, and control the dynamics by adjusting where you touch. Returning to the app store soon....

Let's see if we can get Unstringed  a bit back on track...

I'm happy to start with a new video from Secret Base Design demoing Live Guitar 2.0 a guitar chord strummer / string picker which is promised to land on the App store soon.  

It seems to have a nice sound ... a simple interface with 'fret' buttons which trigger different chords depending on the fingering configuration . It's a scheme which was tried with Strum Stage which worked very well in my opinion. They only had three fret pads which limited it to 8 chords per song. If Live Guitar has 4 , that should increase to 16.  Which of course does present the problem of trying to remember what is what chord-wise between songs ... that is, if configurations can be stored? But let's not get ahead of ourselves. SBD make great apps and I'm sure they've thought this through. 

I always get all riled up when a new guitar instrument emerges and this is no exception. Let's hope the developers prove to be one of the few who have the time, resources and the will to keep at it and create a really expressive tool!
