Yet another must-have application for the iPod, this time from Talking Panda. This one is a 50MB application which offers essential guitar skill-building tools:
Guitar Tuner, Virtual Chordbook, Scales, Metronome, and Riffs.
The Virtual Chordbook displays chord diagrams on the iPod screen, showing the correct fingering for each chord. You can also pop in your earbuds and listen to chords as you work on your instrument. Virtual Chordbook offers over 200 essential chords â€” major, minor, suspended, diminished, and many more.
Once you've mastered the chords, you can learn the scales. This is the best way to play melodies and solo along to your favorite songs.
Guitar tuner offers crystal clear recordings of a perfectly tuned guitar. Hear a perfect E and tune the E string of your guitar, all without carrying around a pitch pipe or tuner. For the pros, iRocker offers a variety of different tuning methods: Standard, Drop D, Half-Step Down, and many more.
iRocker's Metronome ticks off at 10 different speeds, keeping you in perfect timing with every song you strum.
Riffs lets you play along with 5 different chord progressions. Practice your fundamental scales and rock an incredible solo over the blues and rock riffs. Jam anytime, even without a band.
