"This is mind blowing. You can make music on this instrument quickly and easily. It is way beyond the other guitar apps for its ability to let you focus on music making without feeling like you are going against the technology! If you are a musician you will be smilling in moments after you load this in to your phone." - Jordan Rudess (5 stars) "This is the App (especially since I own it's Electric Partner also) that in my mind 'broke the sound barrier'. It outdistanced anything I had ever seen and would NEVER have believed possible back in the day. I have owned this since it came on the market and it still blows my mind." - Mister_App_Guru (5 stars) "All around an ingenious way to play on the iPhone even if You Don't Play the guitar. I'm certain this WILL inspire more people to pick up the real thing." - T.Branton (5 stars) "OUTA SIGHT!!! I have the other guitar apps... This is a REAL instrument!" - 3radart (5 stars) "The first truly *musical* app for the iPhone ...

  • Five Stars For The Sound

    By SynthyMiranda
    I swear, if they made this app universal and updated it for iOS musicians who use Audiobus 3, AUM, IAA, AU—it would get 10 stars. The sound is still the best I’ve heard out of any guitar in the App Store. The developers haven’t quite forgotten what a gem they have, because it got a minor update this past year. But I swear, if only....
  • Great app for playing acoustic guitar when a real one it's not available.

    By Mayito_909
    Love this App. Great Flexibility for Programming your own chord inversions, even the ones I can't really play. Low latency. Can play chords real time. The guitar sounds are also very realistic, not cheesy electronic type.
  • Exceeds My Expectations Beyond Words

    By America's App Advisor
    Updated ... OMG!! It Has Exceeded My Expectations Beyond Words & Still Outperforms So Many Apps. If you're thinking about getting ANY APP in the entire store and you don't have this App yet? You hopefully experience what I have experienced because this App has paid for itself one thousand times over! And yes I do love it that much and I AM gonna marry it ...
  • Updated for 64-bit!

    By Drelbs2345
    I've had this fantastic guitar app since I was using a 2nd generation iPod Touch and am super glad to see the 64-bit refresh! I don't use this one as much as iShred, but this one is just as solid. Highly recommended for ease up use - set up a song with up to 10 chords and play away!
  • Great App but hard to find in search

    By New Rule!???
    This app is the best guitar app from my perspective. But it was difficult to find because it doesn't show up in a search of 'Guitar' when I wanted to add it to my new phone. I ended finding it by searching the developers name. Turns out it's really called GuitarStudio and it does return when searched by that name.
  • I love this app and play it every day

  • Awesome app

    By Willa quinna
    This is a very cool and versatile app.
  • Great App!!

    By Doofusbuerg
    I have had this app for about two weeks. I really dig the functionality. Popular songs available upon download. Availability to build and save your own songs. Building custom chords. I'm have been impressed by this app. I highly recommend it to novices and pros that need to practice/learn/write when a guitar is not always available.
  • Fun App

    By andypasto
    I enjoy the preloaded songs. I wish there were more! If I was a musician I would love it even more.
