[prMac.com] Glendale, Arizona - Glenn O'Bannon, President and Senior Developer of G-Men Productions, and Sharon Seidl, Vice President, are pleased to announce the First Anniversary the their iPad guitar app, Blues Masters. To honor this momentous occasion G-Men Productions is offering a 20% -33% discount on all of their apps on the date of April 6th only.
In its first year, Blues Masters has received wonderful approval from the media and the honor of being the MacWorld | iWorld APPALOOZA winner.
Blues Masters has captured the attention of many notable companies like iK media and Sonoma Wire Works. Those at APPLE have recognized the quality of the app. It has also received rave reviews from leaders in music education including The National Guitar Museum's Director, H.P. Newquist who had this to say:
"The Blues Guitar app created by G-Men is so full of enjoyable and entertaining elements that it's sure to inspire everyone who uses it to grab the nearest guitar and start playing! They've taken the age-old process of teaching guitar and infused it with stunning animation, sound, photos, and video. Anyone who already plays guitar will not be able to resist using the app to learn more, and those who don't play will want to run out and find a guitar just to be part of the digital world that G-Men have built. I've been writing about the guitar, and playing it, for more years than I care to count, but seeing their app made my jaw drop for the first time in a decade!"
Most importantly G-Men Productions has received many wonderful letters from their valued users who claim they love their Blues Masters app.
Instead of presenting entire solos, Cherry Lane Music and G-Men Productions have broken down the familiar 12-bar blues form into six two-measure chunks. Learn each chunk separately, and then combine them to create your own 12-bar Hot List solo. Then listen and play along or play with one of two backing tracks.
Bells and whistles in Blues Masters include:
* Animations highlight each note
* You can slow down the music and animation to help you learn it
* Video lessons for selected riffs
* And much more!
Blues Masters makes playing the blues easier and fun for beginners and is also an interactive encyclopedia of 115+ riffs for seasoned pros. So it's easy to compare the approach B.B. King takes on the V-IV turnaround, with that of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Duane Allman, or BB King and many more.
If you want some fresh ideas for the final two measures of the blues, or to play over the IV chord, or if you're an Eric Clapton fan and you want to learn how to play his beautiful licks and phrases, Blues Masters will give you the best possible education in the timeless art of the Blues.
G-Men Productions is planning some exciting updates for Blues Masters' second year! We look forward to many more successful years to come.
Blues Masters is for anyone who wants to learn authentic licks by sixteen of the greatest blues legends.
