Learn to Play Guitar

See how the jamstik fits in all of the places you’re already living in to help you learn, play and create.
Play Any Instrument
When you see six strings on any number of frets, you’re conditioned to think you’re going to hear a guitar. See how the jamstik turns that idea upside down. Because the jamstik is an easy-to-use MIDI controller, you can “play guitar” while controlling other sounds. Sure, keyboard players have a thirty year jump on the idea of MIDI, but revolutions have been started with six strings, three chords and the truth. With the simplicity of a jamstik, you’ll have access to worlds of sounds.

If you already upgraded to the iPhone 6, iPhone 6+ or the iPad Air 2, then you have experienced how the new features have blurred the lines between “mobile” and “workstation.” Add the jamstik to the mix and those new iOS devices will rock your ideas out in short order. What you see here is what you get - all of the audio in this video is performed and recorded using the jamstik, GarageBand for iOS, and an iPhone 6. Enjoy!
