Amazing music app!!!

This app makes me sound like I have been playing for years. (I have not had a music lesson since I was in grade school, and I remember very little of it.) I can only imagine how good someone who knew what they were doing would sound!

Moron makes music !!

I am making music - interesting music - just by exploring with my fingers and ears.
The stuff I wanted to do, but was too lazy to learn, it’s here.

Lots to explore here. The iPad was built for this - tactile and responsive.

Bandojo - Now I’m a rockstar too!

Once I found the Distortion Guitar, and how to over amp the melody by dragging the Melody Emphasis slider to the top, and tweaked the volume controls, I realized I can at least play at being Neil Young.

I found the Eastern accompaniments like “Nandu’s Lydian” to be very soothing and fun to noodle with.

The ability to play with other people on your network is pretty wicked.

Definitely worth the less-than-a-cup-of-good-coffee price - get it so we can jam together!
