Highway Guitar app review: a chance to rock out

Reviews

Introduction

You don't need to own a guitar in order to rock out like a true rock star. The Highway Guitar app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and provides you with a virtual music experience. The app is meant to feel as though you've got your own guitar in front of you so that you can start strumming away. The beauty part about using the app is that there's no experience needed to play this guitar.

Just Like the Real Thing

Here's an opportunity to enjoy playing the guitar but in a virtual sense. The Highway Guitar app has gone to great lengths to make this experience feel as real and true as possible. It features a user-friendly setup so that there's no need for any previous experience. You'll be able to use the same hand positions as you would on an actual guitar. There are two modes to play in and these are based on your level of experience. Beginner Mode is for those brand-new to guitar playing while Guitarist Mode offers experienced players a chance to really rock out.

To help those just starting out the Show Notes feature is one that has been added. The app has 4.5 out of five stars from users who can't seem to say enough positive things about it.

Features That Help You Play

There are a number of features built into the Highway Guitar app all meant to make it feel as realistic and fun as possible. The user interface is impressive right from the start and it’s clear there has been a lot of attention paid to the details. In beginner mode you'll be able to upload video tutorials and try playing some actual rock songs. Don't worry, they are all fairly easy songs. You have the ability to play the major chord, power chord, minor chord, picking, and palm muting. To help it sound even better you'll be able to play with the original soundtrack or a backing track.

The sounds that are used are actually recorded from an electric guitar which is what ensures its authenticity. Clearly these style music apps are not made equal and this is a great example of one that has gone those extra steps.
