[prMac.com] New York, NY - We are announcing that LP Productions Ltd., the developer of Blues & Rags, has released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. With autoscrolling tablature and fun to play practice pieces, Blues & Rags 1.2.2 shows guitar students what it takes to play their axe like the legends. Developed by a successful guitar player and instructor, for serious students, this app delivers 10 basic picking patterns and 16 practice pieces to get students learning quickly.
Blues & Rags 1.2.2 was not designed to be a toy. It is based on Peter Legrady's successful fingerstyle techniques booklet and his years of teaching experience. If a user already knows some basic chords and wants to start learning to use their picking hand, this app teaches the same fingerstyle methods used by such guitar legends as Tommy Emmanuel, Doc Watson, Merle Travis and many others.
Blues & Rags features include:
* Scrolling speed adjustment in silent mode to match student's skill level
* Easy-to-read tablature system
* Audio track for each tab
* Hands-free autoscroll system
* Scrolling speed adjustment in silent mode
* 16 original, fun to play Rags and Blues pieces
* 10 picking patterns to help you start fingerpicking
* Special electronic tablature book with useful interactive features
* Easy to read tablature system
* TabView screen supports portrait and landscape views
To start learning quickly, all the student needs is this app, their guitar, and a quiet place to practice. As soon as they open the app, users can choose from 10 fingerstyle patterns to learn and one of the 16 practice pieces that were written specifically for students to learn the art of fingerpicking. The easy to use controls provide quick access to onscreen instructions in the event that the user needs a little help.
The TabView screen allows users to listen to their chosen practice piece as many times an necessary to get comfortable with the patterns. When they're ready to start practicing, all they have to do is watch the scrolling tablature and pick along with the tune. For students that can't quite keep up with the app, switching to "Silent" mode also activates a sliding speed control that allows the user to adjust the scrolling speed to suit their skill level.
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later
