Ever wanted to be a guitarist and form a rock band? It’s not too late! Some pretty cool stuff was showcased at CES this year, and this is another one of those. We already told you about the iCade Arcade cabinet for the iPad and iPad 2, which itself is pretty cool if you love to play old arcade styled games. Now here’s another iPad accessory from the same company, that teaches you how to play the guitar.
The Guitar Apprentice is a guitar shaped accessory for your iPad, which has frets that light up as you play and an inbuilt speaker. So, if you wanted to learn Guitar, but never got time off from using your iPad, this is for you. With the Guitar apprentice, you can just place the iPad inside the accessory and start learning. It comes with a free app, but you can also use it with Garageband and some other iPad apps.
GUITAR APPRENTICE is a full-scale, electric-guitar-style controller that transforms iPad into an amazing guitar-learning experience. Simply place your iPad into GUITAR APPRENTICE’s fitted holder, open the GUITAR APPRENTICE app, and you’re ready to go. GUITAR APPRENTICE can be played anywhere as it requires no cables or external connections. GUITAR APPRENTICE’s strings can be strummed together or plucked individually, and its 14 fretboard-fret buttons mean you can easily play thousands of songs.
A pretty good accessory for any music lover who’s got an iPad, specially if you have been trying to produce music with the Garageband app. The only problem is the strumming, it’s not very simple since there are no actual strings.
Guitar Apprentice will go on sale some time this year and will cost you around $100, not a bad price! What do you think of this accessory? Would you buy one? Let us know in the comments..
