Universal Music Group launched Six-String this week, a new iPhone and iPod touch music app that delivers a dynamic guitar experience. The game is developed by Frontier, a company that makes popular guitar simulators for the iPhone.
No experience is required, anyone anywhere can now play the guitar like a pro along with their favorite songs instantly!
Six-String comes with 6 chart-topping tracks, but players can easily add songs from the in-app store as they progress. The tracks included are: Bon Jovi's "You Give Love A Bad Name;" Tom Petty's "Runnin' Down A Dream;" Fall Out Boy's "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs;" Peter Frampton's "Show Me The Way;" and Orianthi's "According To You."
It also contains The Scorpions "Raised on Rock," from their new album, "Sting in the Tail", being released on March 23rd, which will be the first time a Scorpions' recording has been included in any of the music game franchises. Additional songs can be purchased from iTunes through the app where available.
Six-String has two different play modes: Practice Mode or Studio Mode. Practice Mode lets the player get familiar with a song and Studio mode allow the player to compete, earn points and work up to Six-String's high-score rankings.
Additionally, the game offers a free, thriving Six-String social community which allows users to challenge each other's prowess on any song. You can choose to post your score updates via Facebook, Twitter and email.
The Six-String App is now available from the App Store.
