On Beat Limited’s Guitar with Free Songs to Learn app is worth checking out. This app brings the guitar to your iOS device with live recordings of acoustic guitar songs so you can listen to the actual audio. It offers a bare-bones interactive guitar interface that allows you to focus on the fret board to learn the correct finger positioning.

The best part about this app is that it responds seamlessly with touch. It allows you to strum the strings to create your own music. You can touch individual strings to produce realistic plucking sounds.

However, don’t expect to see the entire guitar board. Due to screen limitation, the app only displays parts of the fret board and sound hole. Nevertheless, it still offers accurate finger positioning which you can follow to improve your guitar playing skills.
