Guitar World magazine and Agile Partners have announced the availability of the free Guitar World Lick of the Day App. Available for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, the app is for guitar players who want to continuously improve their guitar playing skills and broaden their repertoire in a fun and engaging way.
Guitar World Lick of the Day delivers a new and challenging lick to subscribers every day, with a "one-of-a-kind" feature set that enables guitar players of all skill levels to learn licks in a variety of styles.
Lick of the Day's features include:
"We gathered the greatest minds in the guitar universe and the greatest developers of guitar apps to create a monster of an app," said Brad Tolinski, Editor in Chief of Guitar World. "Guitar World Lick of the Day is an amazing instructional tool with a totally engaging experience. Will it make you the greatest guitarist in the universe? Anything's possible."
Scott Roth, a principal with Agile Partners, shared, "We're really pleased with the music instruction experience that we were able to create on iOS devices with Lick of the Day. Guitar players of all skill levels can download a new lick every day, watch the video whenever they have a few minutes, and practice right along with the scrolling music notation on their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. In particular, Lick of the Day takes full advantage of the responsiveness, larger screen, and user interface elements of iPad," added Roth. "On the large, high-resolution display, we render bright, crisp music notation that scrolls in sync with the accompanying instructional video. And with a single tap, the user can toggle the notation between standard and tablature format."
Guitar World Lick of the Day is a free app that comes with five sample licks, and is available for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
One-, three- and six-month subscriptions can be easily purchased from within the app to receive a new and challenging lick every day, seven days a week. A one-month subscription is available for only $4.99, a three-month subscription for $12.99, and a six-month subscription for $19.99.
