Wanna Be a Rock Star? Sharpen Your Musical Skills With These 5 Apps!

 

Who hasn’t dreamed of being in a band? The glitz, the glamor, the mad, cheering fans fawning over you – all of it is very appealing, but if the only experience you’ve ever had with music is rocking out to Guitar Hero, you probably aren’t quite ready to call up your closest friends and start laying down the riffs just yet.

Well, with summer beginning, now is the perfect time to dust off that old drum kit, push the stack of books off that piano bench, and start tuning your guitar! With a little bit of perseverance, your instrument of choice in hand, and these awesome apps on your iPhone, you, too, could be finding yourself wowing crowds of adoring fans, or at least being the one cool person who can lead a tune around a summer campfire.

50in1 Piano – $0.99

This is essentially an entire keyboard band in one convenient app. The 50in1 Piano serves up 50 studio-quality instruments, real-time effects, 100 beat loops, and 100 lessons to help you become the keyboard prodigy that you were destined to become. The list of practice songs includes either classical or public domain songs.

But what if you want to learn to play on your real piano? Well, good thing there’s the…

Piano Dust Buster – free

More of a game than a tutorial, the Piano Dust Buster has players fight off waves of dust blobs that move across the screen. The catch? Each blob corresponds to a note on your real-life keyboard. Using the iPhone microphone, the app listens for which notes you are playing, and the corresponding dust particle is destroyed. Of course when done correctly, the dust blobs correspond to a real-world song, so in essence you end up learning how to play the piano and read sheet music by playing the game. The game also features a virtual piano for those who don’t have their own full-sized, real-world piano.

Pocket Drums – $0.99

Do you live in a space where it just isn’t feasible to practice the drums all night and day? Well, then do we have the app for you! Pocket Drums replicates 24 different 6-piece drum kits that were all professionally recorded. Not to mention the app allows you to play your own music in the background while playing the drums over it. WOW! Eat your heart out, Phil Collins!

Rock Prodigy – $1.99

Do you play the hit game Guitar Hero? Ever wish you could shred like some of your favorite rock legends? Well, stop wishing and start practicing! Rock Prodigy is an awesome app that works a little like Guitar Hero for a real guitar, showing you where to place your fingers and when to strum, then grading you on how well you are performing. The app comes with some familiar rock songs and offers different difficulty levels for each song to help ease you into playing wicked complicated riffs. Before long, you’ll be shredding that 6-string like Slash!

The app works great with both acoustic and electric guitars. For the former it uses the iPhone’s microphone to detect which notes you are playing, while for the latter it allows you to plug your guitar into the phone!

Voice Tutor – $4.99

What good is a band without an awesome lead singer? In case your voice could use tuning up, check out the Voice Tutor app. The app starts off by diagnosing your vocal weaknesses then builds a custom lesson plan to help you improve. You’ll be taking center stage on American Idol in no time!

So there you have it, you rock prodigy, you! Practice your craft with these apps, get some friends together, and jam to your heart’s content. And while you’re at it, keep an eye out for our Bodacious Cases, coming this summer!

Hey All! This is Arianna, owner of Bodacious Cases. It is 11:08 CST. I just got this blog and please be patient. Just so all of you know this is my very first blog. I have never written a blog, and if you where to ask me 5 years ago if I would ever do a blog I would have said no! I would have probably bet my life that I would never write a blog…thank goodness I didn’t, or else I would have to be killed LOL! Some of you may know me, and most of you may not. With this blog I want you to know more about Bodacious Cases, more about the company and what we stand for. Bodacious does not mean anything sexual, it doesn’t mean voluptuous either.

The definition of Bodacious is simply: excellent, admirable, or attractive.

Bodacious means anything you want it to mean, but it is far from being dirty, nasty or whatever you think it might be. I want all of you to know that Bodacious Cases is a cell phone case and accessories company, but it’s more then that. We want our customers to be involved with the company like it’s yours. Please give us feedback. Yes, we will be selling cell phone cases and accessories but we want to know what you think. We want to know what you like about your current case, or we want to know what you hate about your current case…or why you don’t have a case? We will be launching the company in mid-november early december with the ipone 4G case. We will then come out with more smartphone cases such as the Motorola Droid, HTC, and other smart phones. But to begin with we will welcome the iphone 4G case to the world.

As you know we cannot give many details until we get closer to launch, but Bodacious Cases is a unique iphone case and accessories company that looks at more aspects than just making cases. We want to keep in mind all of you who read this blog, all of you who will follow us on facebook or twitter. We want you to help us succeed, we want you to feel like you are a part of the company and that we will listen to every suggestion or opinion from everyone.

As the owner of Bodacious Cases I welcome any feedback. It doesn’t even have to be about cell phones, iphone cases, iphones, it could be about another country, an animal, or even your weekend. We want you to be apart of this company and grow with us.

Thanks for reading my first blog. I want to thank all of you who have been behind me from the beginning. I am super excited about the launch of Bodacious Cases, and cannot wait to show the world our baby.
