I’ll begin this with a warning.

This is a monster 72 app guide to the best apps for learning and playing guitar.

In fact, it’s the biggest guitar app guide on the internet – so before you continue, bookmark this page now because you’ll want to return to it later and try more of these awesome apps.

…We’ve separated the wheat from the chaff and chosen 72 the very best of them, organised them into 9 categories, explained what’s good about them, showed a video of each, chosen an independent review to show we’re not biased, and linked to the relevant app store to get the guitar app for your device.

Apps For Recording Guitar

GarageBand

GarageBand

This really is a powerful and fully featured program. It turns your iPad, iPhone, iPod (or Mac) into a mini recording studio complete with it’s own a collection of instruments. This app also makes it easy for you to plug an electric guitar in and play through classic amps and stompbox effects. You can build backing tracks with a variety of separate instruments and jam over them or record your own guitar parts and songs.

The most recent update has went far beyond my expectations. The ease of use is still there, but with many more instruments! They’ve added an FX feature which allows you to do studio quality effects, that bottom end you’ve been missing, and there’s a grid control so you can preset loops by recording your own samples in to the grid with what you’ve composed in the classic UI! If you’re a guitarist or bassist, you can get an adapter for like $20(USD) that allows you directly connect through various amp models, guitar or bass, with the ability to preamp your current setup, or use with headphones, AND you can use it to record your guitar and bass tracks! THIS IS A POCKET STUDIO. Seriously. It is an amazing bargain investment for musicians. Can’t go wrong for $5! Do it! Get it! Click buy!

FourTrack

FourTrack

FourTrack is a multitrack audio recorder and a handy songwriting and practice tool for guitar players, and others that will let you capture your riffs, licks, songs and musical ideas on iPhone and iPod touch wherever you are. Record with FourTrack in 3 steps: Arm, Record, Repeat.

This app is very good due to its size and its simplicity. Couldn’t find a better one myself. Great work!

Overdub

OverDub

Overdub is a multi track sound recorder and sequencer. Use the microphone on your iPod/iPhone/iPad to record and layer guitar, drums, bass and vocals etc.
Overdub can also be used for adding commentary on top of a recording, or editing a recorded interview on the go.

Obviously the best recording APP out there with regards to ease of use, interface, capability and just plain editing quality. Nothing else compares. Be sure to back your music up though as glitch while importing song from ITunes froze the APP and now won’t open without crashing. Any advice on how to avoid losing over 4GB of recordings would be much appreciated!!!

Voice Memo

VoiceMemo

This is a super handy audio recorder to capture your guitar ideas on the fly. It supports multitasking and will record while using other apps.

This app has some string credentials too. It was featured in Engadget, Gizmodo’s Essential iPad Apps and Apple’s “What’s Hot” list.
You can record unlimited, high quality audio with Voice Memos for iPad using the built-in microphone, your headset, or an external mic and voice Memos can even continue to record while you’re using other apps.
You can also share, export and email your recording. It supports iTunes File Sharing and you can share it to SoundCloud (Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare) and Dropbox.

Instead of writing, speaking is better

Available for Android

AudioCopy

This is a handy app started out as a catalogue for your sounds and recordings (guitar ideas!) which also let you directly upload them privately to Soundcloud. It’s since been updated and is now also a fully featured sound recorder and gesture based audio editor compatible with a range of other audio apps.

It’s free, and includes a powerful audio editor. An essential tool for music makers.
