Guitar

I Hit Record

0 Comments

I’ve been writing for much of my life. I can go back to posts that I wrote years ago and hear my voice, my convictions, my emotions. I can see the evolution of that over time. Improve upon it. See where I’ve changed.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been playing my guitar again. I’ve been wanting to play with Yousician on iOS and always pushed it off. So I grabbed my guitar and started practicing with Yousician. I have an iRig, so plugging into my iPad Pro was easy. No waking the kid that way.

So this week, I purchased Capo and started playing along with some of my favorite songs. That app is amazing, but a story for another time. The night before last, as I played for three hours, I decided to hit record in GarageBand. After a song, I listened to my guitar. No voice, no drums, just my guitar. And I saw all my amateur weakness. So last night I focused on improving just one thing. And I hit record.

Roadie — Automatic Guitar Tuner for iPhone

0 Comments

A guitar tuner to geek out over, Roadie is a beautiful example of what can happen when you carry a supercomputer in your pocket. Roadie connects to your iPhone with Bluetooth. The app listens to you strum the strings of your guitar and tells the tuner how much to spin the pegs. It also lets you know when you need new strings.

Gosh darn I want this.
