Ranked No. 1 by Joel McIver in “The 100 Greatest Metal Guitarists,” Dave Mustaine godfathered fast-heavy-metal guitar generations, first as the original lead guitarist for Metallica, and then as the founder of legendary Megadeth.
Now, Mustaine has teamed with the creators of Rock Prodigy to give his legions of fans an entirely new way to experience and learn his music. Available today on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, Dave Mustaine: Guitar Prodigy is an interactive application that teaches fans how to play Megadeth songs on ANY guitar.
Mustaine and his pro guitar team coach fans through each lesson. The application uses real master tracks and listens to every note played, providing instant feedback on your performance; it's like taking private lessons with Dave.
There is truly no better way to appreciate music than to actually play it and Mustaine wants you to start shredding on guitar, saying, “If you have a guitar, if you can run an app, you will soon be playing classic Megadeth songs, like ‘Holy Wars' and ‘Tornado of Souls', and also our new hit single, 'Public Enemy No.1!' I personally reviewed all of these songs, so no more bunk transcriptions and bad tabs; it's just like having a private guitar lesson from me. Also with my app, you can actually slow the parts down to make sure they are perfect!!”
Dave Mustaine: Guitar Prodigy includes several Megadeth mega-shredding hits like “Tornado of Souls,” “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due,” and “Public Enemy No. 1” from Megadeth's new album TH1RT3EN. Also included are a number of progressive bite-sized “Micro Lessons” created by Mustaine himself covering areas like rhythm, technique and theory revealing the true genius behind his music.
The app comes with multiple skill levels from beginner to advanced, and even features a leader board to show off top scores. Never before has there been an affordable way for a fan to get a one-on-one connection with the artist, to experience the music – by playing the music.
