Helsinki, Finland – FourChords, the Guitar Karaoke app (free on iOS) has launched a new “strumming” feature with YouTube guitar sensation Justin Sandercoe to help aspiring beginners learn to strum their guitars via their iPhones and iPads.
Developed by Finnish music app developer Musopia, the FourChords app helps people enjoy playing the guitar quickly and easily by presenting a continually updated range of songs – from folk or rock classics to the latest chart toppers – in an easy to follow karaoke-style app using just a few chords. In its latest version FourChords can take the guitar player a step further where in addition to the easy chords, the app guides the player to learn the different strumming patterns for each song.
Justin Sandercoe, of guitar teaching website Justin Guitar, was named by the Independent newspaper as “one of the most influential guitar teachers in history” and has partnered with FourChords to present chord playing tutorial videos for guitar beginners. Now Justin demonstrates the FourChords strumming feature which lets you see and hear the strumming pattern for you to play on your guitar.
Paula Lehto, CMO of Musopia said; “We want to get people playing, and enjoying, music as quickly as possible. Justin is a great ambassador for FourChords and his latest video for us illustrates just how easy it is to strum good guitar patterns to great songs. We design apps which take budding guitarists through each level of learning and our apps prepare them to what we call the ‘Campfire guitarist level’ – where they’ll be good enough to play guitar for a sing-a-long around a camp fire!”
FourChords is also supporting the national Learn To Play Day on Saturday 12th April 2014 by giving away 10,000 free song downloads within the FourChords App.
