Hi all,
Is anyone a musician? play guitar?

A new music app review just went up in the App Guide section, I'd love to know what you all thought of it.

Hey Jonathan,

I was into learning guitar a few years ago and I purchased this App back then and it is brilliant.

It's a pity I didn't keep at it though, but over the years I have learnt my skills aren't playing a musical instrument.

I may try and learn it again in a few years time.

Surely Mick would be a Hendrix in the making?

I'm all thumbs. Guitar is not for me.

I got a private lesson on how to play eagle rock, by the Aussie icon who wrote it and sung in in 1975... It was cool, real cool daddy :D

He was having his car serviced when I walked in, and playing his guitar to kill some time, maybe I better down load the app, gets some practice in case I bump into him again.

It's good to hear that the app has had positive reviews.

I'm not the musical type but have always wanted to learn guitar.

The app is $10, are you all happy to pay that sort of money for an app? or would that sort of price steer you away from downloading an app?

Usually that amount steers me away from buying an App. But at the time it looked really good so I bought it.

I guess if you really want something and you see value price doesn't matter.

That's true, a lot of the expensive apps have a free version or 'trial' version which enables you to see if it is what you thought, and whether it is worth paying the extra price.
