Get started with blues guitar with these two iPhone apps

Standard

Despite my admiration for guitar and the delta blues, I don’t usually write about it, but I’ve recently found success in fine tuning my blues guitar playing with the help of two iPhone apps.

If you’re looking to jump head first into blues guitar or simply revisit familiar B.B. King and Cash licks, you’re going to want to download the following apps for iOS:

PanoTuner is a very quick way to get your guitar tuned where it needs to start . Tuning is always a pain, but this app makes it seemless.

GuitarJamz beginner lessons app will get you up and running on in a few days. The app’s “host” Marty Schwartz talks you through essential chords and strumming patterns. With just a few lessons under your belt you have enough material to play and practice with.

I realized this app or the content within it was special when I drilled into sections that introduced users to highly recognizable blues styles and patterns.

In the last couple of days I’ve been able to learn new licks and learn some simple essentials.

I felt so strongly about these two apps that I hammered out this post using WordPress (a great app for another day’s post) mobile over breakfast.
