If you have ever wanted to learn how to play the guitar, the Capo Music app shows you how. This iOS Universal app teaches you how to play the guitar in a unique way. You learn to play the guitar to songs from your iTunes library, which is pretty cool since you’re learning music you know and like.
Capo actually teaches you how to play the guitar through a process where you listen to the songs in your iTunes library and then learn how to play them. You do this by listening to them at slow speeds, then as you learn a portion of the song, you can speed it up. There are numerous other features to help you like looping, removing a lead singer’s voice, and a visualizer to show you the music graphically.
Some, me included, wonder what the name “Capo” means. Capo is actually Italian for “fretboard,” which is the neck portion of a guitar. Learning how to play guitar is a formidable challenge, but this app may be the perfect app to teach you.
* And, Capo is on sale right now. It’s regularly priced at $19.99, but has price dropped to only $9.99 for a limited time. So, grab it now using the App Store download link below and save yourself $10.
Capo App Features
Chosen as one of Tap! magazine’s Top 100 Apps of All Time, and Guitar World Magazine’s list of 50 Best Guitar Apps.
Capo helps you learn to play the music in your iPod library.
By slowing down the music without affecting its pitch, you can learn to play it slowly, and then speed it up as you improve. You can drop markers at key points in the song, and set loop points to repeat them.
In addition to letting you choose songs from your iPod library(*), Capo will let you quickly add the currently-playing song from your iPod, placing the cursor right where you left off listening.
In addition, you can employ mono re-mixing to isolate the left or right channel in your audio, use the 10-band equalizer to help isolate specific frequencies, or use the vocal reduction feature to remove the lead singer’s vocal from the mix!
