Million Licks

Posted by Mikers On December - 27 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (15)Are you ready for an amazing breakthrough in Guitar Lick Technology?

What if someone told you they could easily teach you how to play 100 consistent, structured awesome sounding blues/rock licks? How about a 1000 or 10,000, but why stop there? This insane ground-breaking app can show you a virtually unlimited number of licks, way beyond 1,000,000+ licks! Pick a key, tempo and a backing track – then run the blues-inspired random lick generator to see the app play endless variations. Hear something you like? Save it to the library or tweak it first. Everything you save can be called up later to be practiced at slower (or faster) tempos or in different keys. Want to build something from scratch? Easy! Just pick from the list of licks and experiment away.

How do they do that?

Million Licks is based on the knowledge that so many great solos are created from back to back 8-beat (2 measure) phrases, and that the building blocks of these larger phrases are small 1 and 2 beat improvisational ideas. We take some of the best classic guitar lick ideas from the blues and rock shuffle world, teach them to you, and then show you how to spontaneously recombine permutate and modify them in any order to ultimately create your own original phrases and licks. Mark has composed dozens of 8-beat licks that are included with the app beyond the millions possible! And even more, Million Licks is designed and built to be upgraded, so new licks will be available periodically.

What goes into making a great solo?

Million Licks is a radical departure from learning a phrase by rote and then moving on because it actually shows you the finer details of what goes into a well crafted phrase, demonstrates hows these phrases are connected, and teaches you how to create variations within that phrase. Why? Because the really great improvisers know how to take a good idea and construct variations built upon spontaneously recombining their smaller pre-learned bits to create larger ones as well as morphing into new ones. And of course they’re doing all this while executing clear, concise, longer articulate phrases which have a definitive beginning and end.

When soloing are you randomly running notes across the neck, and every once in awhile playing something you think might have sounded pretty cool? It happens! The problem is when you have no idea what you just did, why it worked, and even worse how to duplicate it. If you’re like most guitarists first starting to improvise your solos probably seem to have little or no form and you feel like you’re just rambling.

Open your ears and fingers to the endless possibilities!

Features:

– Tablature for all licks in all keys
– Ability to slow down, speed up to desired tempo; ability to loop
– Several professionally-recorded backing tracks to chose from
– Virtually unlimited number of licks musically created for you
– Dozens of Mark’s pre-crafted licks
– Ability to compose or modify any licks
– Ability to save you own library of licks
– Several backing tracks to choose from

– ready for iPhone 5, 6 and 6 Plus.

Pearl Guitar Pro

Posted by Mikers On October - 1 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

screen480x480 (16)The premiere 6-string acoustic steel guitar simulator, Pearl Guitar delivers absolutely stunning sound – the most realistic, lush, organic and warm tone you will hear in the mobile digital domain. In addition, Pear Guitar features Retina graphics, smooth animations and stylish parallax effects animating the strings!

Pearl Guitar is a carefully tuned virtual representation of the legendary vintage 1979 Martin & Co dreadnaught, one of the best acoustic guitars in the world. An optimized 76-Mb sound database is further processed by CascadeEQ synthesis, producing pristine clear stereo audio with a nasty bite of accidental roars, movement hums, string noises and guitar body resonances.

The strumming feels natural; the smooth, dynamic sound varies as you adjust your playing speed. After just a little training, the performance is hardly distinguished from a real guitar. There is also a metronome and a conga drum machine which provide rhythm assistance.

Pearl Guitar offers a novel way to play impressive solo passages – SoloBoard, a button matrix that represents the notes within the detected scale. You can bend the strings and slide between frets, discovering new melodies and progressions.

Record your singing along with the guitar by connecting a headset (like EarPods) or just headphones. Overdub several takes if needed. The minimalistic interface provides instant access to the recording and metronome features. A “Smart Follow” option highlights the next correct chord in the sequence of the song.

This version offers Audiobus, File Manager, and the Chords menu, as well as the ability to make your own songs using the built-in 1000+ chord database (with variations), or your own custom created chords. Songs can be exchanged with the community over Internet.
