Ratings and Reviews
I like picking don’t get me wrong but It would be cooler to be able to play chords
Great! Still works great on iPhone 7 Plus
I have had this app for many years - iPhone 4, iPhone 5s, and now, on my iPhone 7 Plus - it still works! What I like most is being able to change the tunings to experiment - especially open tunings and even “custom tuning”. With built- in effects, it can real wail (reverb, distortion)! You can hold and bend notes, etc. Great sustain. Fun to jam on - especially when you don’t have a guitar handy. You want chords? Play chords. This is for guitarists - not a “toy”. You have all 6 strings and 7 frets - strum or hammer-on or both. Seems to work well with the larger sized screen of my 7 plus. I hold it just like a guitar. Crazy!
What A Fun And Useful App!
I’m a professional guitarist who teaches, and I have toured many countries, so it’s reasonable for the casual observer to assume I play the guitar a lot. It’s also reasonable to say that I think about the guitar a lot. In the same vein, one may correctly assume that I wish I could play the guitar all the time.
PocketGuitar allows you to play guitar when one isn’t right next to you. Granted, I would advise against using this - or really, any other app while, say, driving. But if you want to run down an idea while waiting in line at the bank or the coffee shop, you can - thanks to this app.
I should also mention that even though I have perfect pitch, PocketGuitar is tremendously useful. Sometimes you need to see the grid, you know? That way, when you get back to a non-virtual instrument, the ideas are fresh in your mind.
I wish PocketGuitar had been around when I was daydreaming in high school... actually, no. I’m fine with the way my grades turned out with fewer distractions.
