David Mead : Guitar Gym
iOS Universal Music
Just doing five two minute exercises a day will help sharpen your skills as a guitarist!
'David Mead : Guitar Gym' is the latest app from David Mead, guitarist, teacher and author of the best-selling Guitar Workout books. The 'David Mead : Guitar Gym' is filled with the most effective guitar practice exercises to develop your technique and turn you into a better guitar player. Create your own daily routine to hone your skills and improve your playing.
The 60 core exercises are split into five categories, each containing three levels of difficulty. The categories cover Warm-Ups, Co-ordination, Ear Training, Stamina and Rhythm, but all will test your left and right hand capabilities to the limit.
In addition you can add extra categories via in-app purchases of the David Mead Guitar Gym expansion packs. Expansion Pack 1 adds 48 exercises in four all new categories - Arpeggios, Modes, Cross Picking and the Major Scale.
You can design your own custom workout by taking one exercise from each category to practice every day.
You can hear the exercises in advance and play along using the tab player and there's an adjustable metronome to keep you rhythmically on track.
There's a timer, too, to make sure you perform each exercise for the full two minutes. You can keep a record and view stats for each exercise to help track your progress.
