Guitar Practice Lite for Android Publisher's description
Guitar Practice Lite is a small guitar that fits in your Android mobile device
Guitar Practice Lite is a small guitar that fits in your Android mobile device. It allows you to practice playing melodies when on the move, and may help you learn to play the guitar. As most Android devices aren't multi-touch capable, you can't play chords and you can only select one fret/string at a time. To make life easier with your single touch device, tapping any of the four frets (from the top of a guitar neck) will play the same note that you would get on a guitar if you were fingering that fret/string.
To play an open string you just use the fret at the bottom of the screen. Also, even though there's no multitouch, you can glide your finger over strings to strum them. Guitar Practice Lite supports the playing of more than one note at a time, so you don't have to wait for one note to finish before playing the next. In fact, why not try gliding your finger around the guitar neck to see just how rich a guitar sound can be achieved! As of v1.2 you can even change the look and feel of the graphics using the new skin chooser menu.
Guitar Practice Lite requires Android OS v1.6 or higher to run, and should work on QVGA (320x240 pixels), HVGA (480x320 pixels) and WVGA (800x480 pixels) devices, as well as many other screen resolutions. You can press the menu button on your Android device to access the about and settings screens. The settings allow you to adjust the volume, as well as adjust the sound balance to pan it left or right for use with stereo headphones and speakers. You can also vary the note playback speed which allows for some nice effects and adjustment of the pitch of each string. As tablet sized WVGA screens are much larger than those on phones, the settings also allow you to adjust the guitar neck width and position, as well as allowing you to vary the string spacing. All settings are persistent and so will be reloaded each time this app is run.
To upgrade Guitar Practice Lite from v1.0, please note that you will first need to uninstall the old version from your Android device.
