Misc Apps for Guitarists –

Players, Brands & More


Met Guitars


This app complements The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s special exhibition Guitar Heroes: Legendary Craftsmen from Italy to New York. Through collaborations with musicians and experts, the app brings to life the guitar makers’ creative process and celebrates the enduring relevance of these instruments. It features museum-commissioned musical performances expressly designed for this exhibition, artist interviews, and rarely seen archival video footage.

The app may be used either as a guide to the exhibition or on its own, and once it is downloaded, no Internet connectivity is required to access its content.

The Guitar Collection: George Harrison


The Guitar Collection: George Harrison is a ipad app that offers an up-close-and-personal, interactive look at Harrison’s most historic guitars. Through 360-degree imaging, rare audio and archival photography, this app highlights the sound and look of each classic guitar – instruments that should be familiar to millions of Beatles fans, such as Harrison’s Gretsch Duo Jet, his Fender ‘Rocky’ Stratocaster, the Rickenbacker 360/12 heard on A Hard Day’s Night and more.

“To all Harrison fans: You’ve got to get this app.  The 360 views on the guitars are spectacular and the videos are as well.  5 Stars All Day Long!!”
