Guitar apps and various music apps for iPhone and other smart phones are plentiful in the techno-realm now. Unfortunately, a lot of them are not really worth your time. I would like to let you know as I find apps that may be worth your time of inspection and one of these is Strum Stage, a guitar app that allows you to play chords, arpeggios, and play along with beats. I show Strum Stage to some of my students to show how they can set beats and practice playing quarter notes, eighth notes, and sixteenth notes using the metronome-like drum machine device that’s built in. You can also play acoustic or electric guitar with the app. Because the chords A, D, and E are very simple on the app, using only the 1st finger for A, only the 2nd finger for D, and only the 3rd finger for E, then it’s very easy to play the classic rock song “Wild Thing,” which is A A – DDD – E E – DDD and repeat.
Anyway, let me know what you like about Strum Stage – what you don’t like about it – and what other stellar music apps you have found that you would like other people to know about as well. You should be able to find Strum Stage for free at your app store. Please let me know if it works / does not work for you. I would think it would be compatible with most if not all Apple products. I could err in that thinking though. Anyway, here is a quick video demonstration of the Strum Stage guitar app:
