New iPad App: Blues Master Is Everything About the Blues

Cherry Lane Music and G-men teamed up to bring us Blues Masters for iPad, an encyclopedia for all those eager to learn the basics of blues guitar and who want to discover how the legends build their solos. Learn from 115+ authentic riffs from 16 masters of the blues guitar, including Clapton, Vaughan, B.B. King, Haynes and many more. This app is with loads of fun features, teaching videos, lessons on the legends themselves. Build your own 12 bar blues session using authentic tracks from these legendary blues players. Here is more info on this cool iPad app:







Features:

* Audio with text commentary for each riff
* Video instruction for selected riffs (about 15 riffs)
* Slow down each riff to 3/4 or 1/2 speed to help you learn it
* Notes and tab, with animation, shows you what to play for each riff
* Add your favorite licks to your "Hot List" for convenient retrieval
* See a Bio page for each artist with the ability to listen to each of their licks, sorted by its place in the 12-bar progression; if you like a riff, tap on it to go straight from the Bio page to the Music page to learn it
* A fun spinner to randomly select an artist and riff
* A built-in tuner with clickable strings to help you tune your guitar
* A Hot List page for assembling your own 12-bar Hot List solo; choose six 2-bar licks sorted by lick number or artist to create a 12-bar solo and then play it as if the greats were trading licks with each other
* Animate the whole progression while playing one of two backing tracks so you can play them with your own rhythm section (you can slow this down too!)
* Everything is included; no Wi-Fi streaming is required

Blues Masters sells for $9.99 on the iTunes App Store: http://itunes.apple.com/app/id406288419
