Use Your Phone To Tune Your Guitar
Fender's offering is the first in a series of connected apps to help musicians improve their tune and connect with other players
Guitar tuning apps are not new, but guitar manufacturer Fender just announced Fender Tune, an iOS guitar and bass tuning app designed with an educational approach. Its intuitive interface helps beginners tune their guitar in minutes and —unlike similar apps on the market—also teaches players about tone and its importance.
The app includes an auto tune mode, which listens to the note being played and guides the player to the perfect note. A more advanced manual tune mode plays a real instrument sample of the note. It also features pre-set tuning options and the option to create custom tunings that users can save to their Fender Connect profile. Fender Tune is the first in a series of connected apps to help players improve in the practice while having fun and connecting with other players.
