Guitar World Lick of the day is a guitar learning app geared towards intermediate players who are looking to really sharpen their chops on the guitar. Although fee based, if you consider how much this app provides, it really is not too bad a deal, provided you have the money to spare. For $1.99 a month, every day (yes, EVERY day) of the month you will be able to download (or automatically sync) the new lick of the day. Typically these short video lessons are hosted by a celebrity guitar player as they show you how to approach the selected lick of the day. Included to view is the music chart presented in Tablature format. These lessons are extremely short and are not intended to do much more than let you hear how it should be played, along with some personal direction from the instructor. The real benefit of this app will be up to the user who will need to practice these licks repeatedly (as is the case with all guitar lessons). The point being, don't expect these "lessons" to be jam packed with information on technique and approach. They are quick and to the point and let you get right to practicing them. I personally benefit more from this approach and I can say that learning some of these licks has really motivated me to play more which, at the end of the day, is how you really get better.

App Store Description

The richest guitar learning experience for iPad and iPhone. 50+ courses spanning 1,200+ lessons.

Great Features: Backing Tracks, Full Screen Tab, Retina display support.
Try Before You Buy: Every Lick Pack includes free Licks to try out!

Agile has teamed up with TrueFire and JamPlay to bring you Lick of the Day, the guitar learning app! Lick of the Day offers 50+ courses spanning 1,200+ blues, rock, jazz, country, bluegrass, fingerstyle, rockabilly, R&B and acoustic lessons.

Each Lick Pack features 12 to 25 lick video lessons—about 60-90 minutes of video—from a skilled instructor, along with matching interactive tab/notation, text narrative and backing tracks. Many Lick Packs are presented in sets of two volumes per genre, where the second volume builds on the concepts and techniques that were presented in the first. Additional TrueFire and JamPlay Lick Packs are already in the pipeline for release in coming months.

Lick of the Day supports dual instructional modes to optimize the learning experience. In instructor mode, the student follows along with the instructor via video, with synced† tab or music notation and a fretboard display showing the notes being played by the instructor. In practice mode, the student controls the tempo of interactive tablature playback and also has access to the backing track audio to practice what was shown in the video.

Lick of the Day is powered by the live tablature rendering engine from TabToolkit, winner of the Apple Design Award. Rather than displaying static tablature, Lick of the Day renders tablature dynamically, including realistic guitar audio and advanced features such as A/B looping and speed control.

Lick of the Day is a free download on the iTunes App Store, and free Licks are available for each Lick Pack to enable guitar students to try out course content before they buy.
