If you’re a guitar player and maybe even an avid reader of Guitar World magazine, you’re no doubt familiar with their free universal app Lick of the Day -- which just got a fairly significant update, adding sponsored licks, AirPlay support and much more.
For musicians of all skill levels, learning new songs can often require
a whole lot of paper. Whether you prefer printing out tabs from the
Internet or purchasing a myriad of magazines and books, the end result
is stacks and stacks of sheet music that can be both costly and
inconvenient. But the iPad offers musicians an interesting new option,
as the combination of portability and power (plus a user-friendly
multitouch interface) lends itself very well to the act of reading and
performing sheet music. And it certainly doesn't hurt that the iPad is
the perfect size to sit upon a traditional music stand.
