San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2012
San Francisco-based software development firm Synaptic Stuff presents Pocket Jamz Guitar Tabs 2.0, a next generation guitar learning and reference platform offering interactive song arrangements with adjustable tempo, beat highlighting, fretboard finger guides, audio playback, and more.
Pocket Jamz Guitar Tabs is the first iPhone, iPad, or Android guitar tab app to provide access to licensed guitar tabs - straight from top publishers such as Alfred Publishing and Sony Music. The Pocket Jamz in-app tablature song store includes selections of classical, contemporary, rock, and blues music as well as music for acoustic guitar and Spanish guitar. All songs include lyrics, chords and effects - exactly the way the artist intended for them to be played. Adding songs to the library is easy with affordable selections starting at $0.49. Free guitar tabs found online are often incomplete or incorrect, lacking effects, chords, or lyrics. With Pocket Jamz Guitar tabs, users have the choice of downloading or uploading free tabs in Guitar Pro or MusicXML formats, or purchasing professional arrangements.
Users can select songs based on their level of ability, from beginner, intermediate and expert guitar tabs. Like a digital musical assistant, Pocket Jamz Guitar Tabs automatically arranges similar songs, links to instructional YouTube videos and Wikipedia background information, and allows users to edit song details to manage their digital library.
"With Guitar Tabs, guitar enthusiasts can carry hundreds of songs, to practice on the go or at home, combined with animated song playback, detailed notes and effect legends. The ability to change song tempo for automatic playback, provide context sensitive help for effects and chords, switch tracks for multiple instruments, and select between standard music annotation and tablature, provide a significant enhancement over paper sheet music," says David Foote, a founder at Synaptic Stuff.
Guitar Tabs utilizes a custom tab notation that optimizes the tab view for small screen mobile devices, and on larger screen tablet devices, Pocket Jamz Guitar Tabs shows both music notation and tab notation in a full page view. Designed for musicians of all skill levels, it includes support for the AirTurn BT-105 bluetooth page turner allowing hands-free paging and scrolling of music tabs during performance or practice.
Pocket Jamz is a family of music apps (Pocket Jamz Guitar Tabs and Pocket Jamz Piano Notes) designed to take full advantage of next generation mobile and tablet devices as a music learning and reference platform.
Pocket Jamz Guitar Tabs is available on the Apple App Store, the Amazon Apps and on Google Play.
