Most of us wanted to become rock stars at one point in our lives. Let’s admit it. Who doesn’t like the fame, the attention, and of course the great music? For all you guitarists and guitar lovers out there, whether you are on your way to becoming a guitar god/goddess or a beginner student, there are guitar apps that you can enjoy and learn from. Here are some of the best apps that will surely make your day…

Gibson Learn & Master Guitar

This app provides you with all the basic tips and information in learning how to play the guitar like a real pro. This app showcases a level chromatic tuner, alternate tuning settings, a standard mode tuner, metronome, and even an extensive chord reference library. Of course, the app also links directly to Gibson’s official website. There, you can keep up with the latest industry news or make your purchase.

Guitar Jam Tracks

This app is a great tool for aspiring lead guitarists. It provides an hour’s worth of professionally recorded practice backing tracks in different styles and chord progressions. There are five versions available, namely Acoustic Blues, Humbucker Blues (guitar and bass) and Reggae (guitar and bass). You can pick a key that you want to play so you can master all the different scales across different locations on the fretboard.

Steel Guitar

This app presents the guitar instrument in four different iterations. You can try lap steel, eight-string console, as well as the “Nashville” and “Texas” setups. The coolest thing about this app is that you can dip your phone backward, forward, left and right to bend individual strings. Now ain’t that cooler than air guitar?

Guitarist Reference

This app is a comprehensive chord and scale primer. It provides a 3,000-plus chord encyclopedia and information on more than 40 types of scale. You can choose from major to diminish, to harmonic minor, in every key so that you can master the scales anywhere on the guitar!

Lick of the Day

This app has video lessons on how to play the guitar. The one that will teach you are rock-guitar gods as well as GW’s esteemed stable of instructors who will teach you different styles. From rock, metal, and blues to country, bluegrass and jazz styles. You name it, they’ll shred it. On the fretboard!

Guitar Toolkit

This app, one of the first and most popular of its kind for the iOS, is essentially a simulator that offers four ways to “play” guitar. Manual fret, Hammer on, Tab and Scale Guitar. You can choose from acoustic to electric guitar sound patches. It helps you play guitar, even if you are left-handed. There is a chord library where there are over a half a million chords you can learn to play at your convenience.

These guitar apps will surely help you master your craft. But like any tool, they are only as efficient as the way you use them and how often you practice. So the next time you pick your guitar up, pick your smartphone or tablet up as well. Your dream of becoming a guitar master may be not so out of reach after all.
