I'm new to Android so I'm not sure if I'm right or not, but I had to manually update it myself. But really excited!
Did you get a notification regarding the update?

I have a dev question, and feel free to point to link if you've answered this already: how did you you build this app? Using Xcode, Flash, or other? I've been experimenting with Flash but I'm curious to know what other options exist. Thanks in advance.
Sorry, I can't help you. It's a secret.

Just kidding, I didn't build this app. Basically I started building the app but then a guy from another guitar forum mentioned he may be able to help. It turned out he was clearly a far better developer than me so he ended up building it from scratch.

The iOS version was made in Xcode. In my opinion Xcode and iOS is the way to go.

Regarding the PDFs of my books:

Okay, I am thinking the best way to sell this PDF is via email only.

I will be selling the 208 page PDF of Riff Training Level 2 for $40. This book marks 6/7 years of intense practice and discipline.

"Back in the day" I used the content of this book to significantly increase my technical ability. If I had this book when I was 16 I would be a lot better at guitar (and a better musician) than I am now.

Unfortunately I had a guitar teacher that taught me nothing but bad habits and left me with huge gaps in my playing that took me years to correct. This book will give you routines and exercises that, if done properly, will make you a far better guitarist.

If you want a PDF copy, give me a PM and I will add you to the list. If/when I get enough interest, I will then sort out payment and delivery.

This is book 2 of the series. Make sure you have a clear understanding of book 1 (RTL1) before you get this. Unless you are an intermediate/advanced player.

Thanks!

I really need more ratings and comments.

Please can you guys download the free version of the app and rate/comment?

If you rate/comment and want some of my play along lesson files, PM me and I will send several to you for free... kind of like a bribe

Thanks

I've had the Free app for some time and used it on and off. It is good I think. However the info about how/if the free version is updated is missing. The description in the Play store is the same for both the Free and pro version.

There is a "go pro" option on the free version that will take you to a link containing the pro:

This is what Guitarmageddon Pro has over Guitarmageddon Free:

- Far more exercises, I believe GMF has about 30% of the exercises that GMP gets.

- Backing tracks, currently in MIDI but we may also add mp3 backing tracks later on.

- Specialist exercises, a new section that is soon to be released. Includes exercises for Flight of the Bumblebee, slap guitar, 8 string guitar, licks in the style of….

- Goal tempos for every exercise. I believe this feature is coming out in a few months. Every exercise and lick will have 3 goal tempos and a video demonstration of me playing each one. Great for motivation.

Bottom line, there will be far more content on GMP. Weekly updates will include exercises suitable for pretty much any style of guitar player, not just shredders. Where as GMF will only really get a sample of that content.

This app is the result of thousands of hours of guitar playing and app development. And all for a few dollars.

Because the app features MIDI and images, there is no limit to how many licks, exercises, chords, scales we can add to this. Eventually the app will have all the useful scales, chords and arpeggios too. And you can add any of this to your "Favorites" section to create any routine you want.

I should also add that the app will store all of your tempos for every exercise which makes it easy to keep track of your speed.

Pro iOS version:


I will update the descriptions for both apps soon.

Hey,

Here is a quick video I recorded breaking down the contents of my play along lesson files. I wanted to do a voiceover but for some reason my editing software would not accept the video file.

Anyway, for anyone interested, this is what my lessons contain:

Just got the pro version for iOS, excited for the extras to be released!
Cheers Sean! Any constructive criticism?

The iOS version is slightly behind the Android, but it will be updated this year at some point. There are loads of new licks and some very handy features such as 3 goal tempos for every exercise and lick.

And android pro version bought...nice app!
Thanks, glad you dig it.

Yeah, that sounds awesome! I am looking forward to the new licks and the goal tempos. I don't know what is coming in the next iOS update, but it would be cool to have some more spread out arpeggios. Ones with extensions that don't just repeat in octaves. Also, a section of phrasing would be very cool. Things such as arpeggios using jazz enclosures etc.

I am looking forward to the iOS updates! This is a very good product you have, and thanks for continually improving on it!

I am almost finished with the "Super Nerd Alternate Picking Play Along". This is broken down into 2 practice routines, you could easily turn them into 1 routine but it will take you 90 minutes to complete.

Part 1 works on difficult sequences, string skipping, combining subdivisions, rhythmic groupings with scales, blues/jazz/shred licks, FOTB and other practice pieces such as speed workouts.

Part 2 focuses more on coordination, riffs and endurance. The riffs will be blues, jazz and metal and will combine difficult picking passages with arpeggios and chord voicings.

I am going to charge a whopping £5 for each of these. Why? Because I feel like adding an extra wing to my mansion, and also because they have taken me about 200 hours to perfect.

iOS app has been updated, new exercises/licks added as well as 3 goal tempos for every exercise and new icon.

You need iOS 7 for it.
