From the moment you click on the iShred logo and the guitar spins smoothly into place you know that this app has been built with care and attention and right away you can start strumming the strings to create what has to be the most accurate guitar sound the iPhone has heard.
After you’ve rocked out for a few minutes though you’ll want to move on to something a little more serious and that’s where the pre-loaded song sets come in. Now if you after a Guitar Hero style painting by numbers game you are going to be disappointed as rather than letting you pretend to be Joe Perry or Jimi Hendrix, iShred teaches you to become your own legend.
Each song set provides you with just the right chords to create your own version of a guitar classic inc. Wild Thing, Highway to Hell, Godzilla and more but not only that, when your done with creating your own instant classic you can tweak you guitar to really make the song your own.
This is where the $4.99 becomes great value for money as you can chose from a multitude of premier effects and take your guitar shredding to the next level. There are 8 effects to choose from each with multiple settings allowing you to create your definitive sound, my favorite, the Wahsabi even allows you to shake the iPhone to add your wah wah effect.
Each string can be adjusted, refined and perfected in your hunt for the perfect sound and once you’ve mastered, or in my case annihilated, your favorite tunes you can not only record your masterpiece but share it with fellow iShreeders around the world with the AirPlay. Not only that, but you can also listen to other songs that have been uploaded and rate them.
iShred has been created by a team that clearly knows and loves the guitar, its sound and the raw emotion that strumming those 6 strings can bring, in my opinion installing the iShred application onto your iPhone is 2nd only to hanging the real thing around your neck.
- Great sound
- Slick interface
