We're on a bit of a roll recently. After releasing a series of top-charting mobile tab apps, and our recent Ultimate Guitar Store, we've got one more treat for you.
Meet Songful, a brand new iPad app developed by Ultimate Guitar and instruMagic. It's the easiest way to play guitar without knowing how to play guitar, with live lyrics so you can sing along.
Alright, we put our hands up: you're probably the wrong audience for this, since you spend so much time and effort learning how to play a real guitar using our huge tab library. But this is a community, so we wanted to tell you about it, and hope you'll support our efforts anyway. Hopefully some of the diehard guitar purists will go easy on us!
How does it work? Simply load a song you want to play, and strum the guitar strings while tapping a chord-change button while you sing along to the lyrics on-screen. You can switch between guitar or ukulele sounds, switch to alternate tab versions for each song, or tell friends about it via Facebook and Twitter sharing.
It's so easy that even your grandma could play it. Why not give them the iPad to play on rhythm while you tear out a face-melting solo?
Watch this video demo to see it in action:
It's available for $2.99 (£1.99) on the iPad App Store right now. Tell a couple of friends about it, they'll love it.
As usual, we welcome your feedback. Let us know your thoughts in the comments, or you can tap the flag icon in the app to give us feedback from there. Thanks!
