Air Guitar provides all the fun of rocking out with none of the talent or commitment required to play a real instrument. Unlike other guitar apps, Air Guitar uses the built-in accelerometer to let you really rock: with your iPhone or iPod touch in hand, just start strumming away at your imaginary axe. You can even strum harder or softer to control the volume and whammy (pitch-bend) by bending your wrist!

Our favorite part? Air Guitar is built to be played with your own music. To quickly play, pause, or skip tracks, double tap the home button. Air Guitar is set up with power chords and preset progressions that help you pick notes that sound good together, but if you want more flexibility our advanced mode puts a full scale at your fingertips.

To make sure you’re getting the most out of Air Guitar, check out the full instructions at

" of the reasons why it is difficult to match the popularity of the iPhone. There have been many apps available in the iTunes Store that are simulations of various musical instruments like keyboards and guitars. However this new app [...] is probably the best of them all. This is simply the most complete virtual guitar available in the store." --
