UMG Launches New Six-String™ Guitar App For The iPhone & iPod Touch
Move over Rock Band. Now all you need to play guitar is an… iPhone? Universal Music Group (UMG), recently launched Six-String™ on the App Store. Six-String™ is a new iPhone and iPod touch music app that let’s you play guitar on your iPhone or iPod touch guided by tracks gathered from real studio masters.
Players are provided with a truly engaging musical experience as they are required to pluck, strum and change chords. And since no experience is required, anyone anywhere can now play the guitar like a pro along with their favorite songs instantly.
Six-String™ comes with 6 tracks, but players can easily add songs from the in-app store as they progress. The tracks included are: Bon Jovi’s “You Give Love A Bad Name”; Tom Petty’s “Runnin’ Down A Dream”; Fall Out Boy’s “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs”; Peter Frampton’s “Show Me The Way”; and Orianthi’s “According To You.” It also contains The Scorpions “Raised on Rock,” from their new album, Sting in the Tail, released on March 23rd, which will be the first time a Scorpions’ recording has been included in any of the music game franchises.
The Six-String App also features more than 20 additional game tracks available for In-App purchase, including songs from 3 Doors Down, Angels and Airwaves, Beck, Dashboard Confessional, G.B.H., Gary Go, Hinder, Hollywood Undead, Kaiser Chiefs, Maroon 5, No Doubt, Papa Roach, Rise Against, Robert Palmer, Sum 41, Wolfmother and many more to come! In addition, users can purchase the corresponding song, video and ringtone from iTunes through the app where available.
