10 Best Guitar Apps of 2018

No matter what you need, there’s an app for it. When it comes to guitar applications, you’re spoiled with choices. We’ve dug around the web to find some apps to help you in your creative process.

Here are the best guitar apps we could find! While the majority of them are for iOS, there are a few for Android as well. Most of them are free, but some of them offer a paid version with premium features.

1. AmpKit

AmpKit does exactly what it promises. It’s a guitar amplifier app you can plug your guitar jack into and add effects with. There is also a premium version of the app that has more effects, pedals, and mics.

2. Amplitube 3

Like AmpKit mentioned above, Amplitube 3 is a well-known guitar amplifier app. It allows you to program a drummer you can play along to — much more fun than a metronome!

3. AnyTune Pro+

The key to learning a melody, chord progression, or entire song is to take it slow. AnyTune Pro+ allows you to do just that. Slow down sections of any song until you’re comfortable increasing the speed.

4. Chord!

This app allows you to drag and drop chords into your written lyrics to create a chord progression. You can edit your lyrics and transpose the music. Export it all to a PDF once you’re done!

5. GarageBand

Every Logic Pro X user has probably started out with GarageBand. The iOS app is a smaller version packed with loops and samples. You can also plug in your guitar and load up some effects.

6. Guitar Jam Tracks

This is a great app if you’re a beginner. With Guitar Jam Tracks you’ll b able to practice scales, chords, and finger placement. You can also switch between five different styles of playing.

7. Guitar Lessons

Guitar lessons are not just for beginners — there’s always something to learn. This app comes with no less than 11,000 lessons spanning beginner stages through to expert levels.

8. Roadie Tuner

The free Roadie Tuner app works independently of the Roadie 2 automatic guitar tuner. It comes with presets for every possible tuning so you can quickly get your guitar in tune. Moreover, you can also use it to stay up to date on our blog!

9. Reverb

Guitarists are gear-heads, and gear-heads can never get enough gear. Reverb’s app lets you buy and sell your old gear and get your hands on someone else’s second-hand gear. Save some money and spend it on promo!

10. Tab Toolkit

Tab Toolkit let you jam along to an entire band. In fact, the app allows for up to 128 instruments to be plugged in to it. To add, can also upload your sheet music so you can play along to it.
