Any musicians here? What instrument(s) do you play? What music apps do you like best?

    I am pretty new to smart phones (few months now) so I'm curious.

    I'm a professional musician The Sophisticats and play (in the order than I learned them)
    1. drums
    2. saxophone - (the instrument I am best at)
    3. voice
    4. flute
    5. minimal rhythm guitar - (doubling with barre chords in bands where there was no sax part)
    6. bass
    7. keyboards
    8. wind synthesizer
    9. lead guitar

    What instrument(s) do you play?

    What musical apps do you like?

    And why?

    Thanks,
    Notes ♫

    I like the gstrings app, i use it to tune my ukulele when i forget my tuner!

    I'm just doing vocals right now, but I am also proficient with:

    Bass Guitar
    Guitar
    Drums

    My band is in my signature. We're posting music probably in a couple weeks, as we're almost done recording.

  4. I'm in a community Samba percussion band :) I'm our most regular agogo (uh, cowbell) player. I've dabbled in the ukulele in the past, but really, I've come to the conclusion I'm a better dancer than I am a musician (13+ years ballet, 8 years jazz, 4 years belly dance, less than one year African Dance and Capoeira).

    I'm a better musician than a dancer ;) I've lived on the other side of the microphone all my life. But that's a good place to watch the dancers.

    I scare my cat and small children with my mandolin. I also use "GStrings"app to tune it.

    GStrings is better than any tuner I've spent money on.

    Thanks, I'll try GStrings. I have DaTuner and it works, but only if the room is very quiet. It seems to be too sensitive to other sounds.

    I'm a drummer. Only been doing it since February of '08. Got myself a nice 5 piece Pearl Export EX, and it's the best purchase I've ever made.

    I play in a band. Been playing together since October '10. We do cover stuff. We're just now getting around to being comfortable playing together and starting to write our own stuff. We have a couple videos and pics on our Facebook page from a few shows we've played. You can Like us if you wish.

  14. I mainly play bass but started out on guitar. I've messed around on a drum kit but it was embarrassing.

    I'm rocking a pretty classic rig: 2007 Fender American Vintage '60s Reissue Jazz, Lakland Darryl Jones 4 Jazz, Ampeg SVT-VR, and an Ampeg SVT810E. Mmm.

    I'm also into music production/recording so I have a cheap MIDI keyboard/DAW controller and a couple of audio interfaces. Those aren't my strong areas but I enjoy messing around when I'm alone.

    I haven't really found any must-have apps for my needs but I do enjoy those keyboards. It's fun to be able to create melodies when I have time to kill. I could definitely use a metronome app but I have one on my Zune HD already. Since the Zune gets considerably better battery life, I'll just stick with that. It's easy enough to hook it up to my PA for when I practice.

    I'm a trumpet player with 10 years of experience. I don't have a favorite music app. As long as it does what I want it to do like help me tune my trumpet, I'm cool. I don't need a metronome. I have a natural sense of time.

    I play saxophone the best (mostly jazz) and like to think I play guitar, trumpet, flute, and piano too but not really lol.

    ZPlayer is great for listening to my music. And gStrings is a great tuner.
  19. I play guitar and bass. I'm not that great at bass, but guitar is what I do. I own a Gibson Flying V (Gloss Cherry finish, rewired volume/tone pots), a Eiphone SG-400 (beat the crapp outta it), and I play into a little Silvertone combo amp from the 60's (my username).


    I like the gStrings tuner.

    Guitar. GStrings. (Broken record eh?)

    I'm trying to teach myself piano...

    After many years on the saxophone, and years of dabbling on the guitar, a few years ago, I decided to get serious with the guitar, and I'm discovering what a wonderful instrument it is to play.

    G-Strings seems to be the winner with musicians.
