Have you guts thought about an update? Coming on a year and a half since the release. More licks, please! Still a great program, but needs more content.

Original Review:
Lovin'it! Nice bluezy/Rice style licks. Both audio and video tools, including tab.

Need additional licks, even if they were a couple of bucks for a batch of 20 or so.

Developer Response ,

Hey NRBach, thanks for the review! We apologize that there hasn't been an update for this app. This is due to focusing all of our efforts on TuneFox for Guitar and Mandolin, which will teach licks in the context of bluegrass tunes and songs. Our scheduled release for that is in September. Once that is out and the workflow slows a bit, we'll look at revisiting the Pocket Lick series and making some updates. Thanks again for the feedback, and please let me know if you have any questions. - Bennett

Good stuff, need more!

This is a good, basic app with 30 bluegrass licks. It's not a lot of content, but fair for the price. I wish there were more because there seems to be a shortage of bluegrass guitar on the App Store. I'd pay for IAP with more content...

That said, this is basically tab, an audio recording at full speed and a slowed down video of each lick. Nothing fancy.
