Guitar-Playing Game Hit iPhone Apps! Universal Music Group Drops "Six-String" Guitar App!
Leave it to one of the premier musical conglomerates to realize that iPhone apps can be used within the music realm.
Moving past Guitar Hero like a speeding bullet, Universal Music Group has launched a beta iPhone app (and I hope to ‘you know who’ that you heard it here first) called “Six-String” which gives you a variety of songs you can download and then “play” guitar along with the song. Not only does it work with the iPhone, but also iPod Touch and the new iPad. The app retails for about $5.00– a chunk of change but it’s way less than competitor Guitar Hero.
It’s so fun, so easy and oh-so-addictive. Once you download this app, even your iPad won’t seem to be near as much fun.
Here’s a video demo!
Here’s the official scoop on this new app:
Six-String is a way-cool new music game with the feel and appearance music of a real guitar music sheet and could almost substitute for or assist in music lessons. Rather than playing a fake guitar a la Guitar Hero, Six String provides a more guitar playing experience. One of the best parts happens to be that you are playing along with your favorite songs which are authentic studio mastered recordings– not dummied down versions. In using this app, you are will be plucking, strumming and changing chords as required by the song. This is such a musical and dexterity challenge that wrapping your brain and your fingers around it will be so engrossing that you might be ignoring phone calls. No music experience required, now you — or anyone else– can learn to play the guitar to popular songs !
Six-String Six-String is a new dynamic presentation in rhythm-based games. Looking at it last night, I found it to be much more authentic, realistic guitar playing game than anything out there on the market. Want to test your skills and see if you have what it takes to shred up your favorite songs? Download Six-String now and show off your chops to your friends – but practice first before you do!
