Solo provides you with a fun and easy way to play guitar that you can take anywhere with your Android powered mobile phone.
- Solo carries a number of different guitars which includes acoustic, classical and electric guitars. Each guitar has its own unique sound.
- The app has a huge integrated chord library with more than 380 unique chords. It displays finger positions for the chords in natural, flat or sharp configurations. This can be used as a reference when playing a real guitar (it also plays a sample of what each chord should sound like), and to customize your chord layout visible on the main screen. Chord layouts can be saved and loaded for future use.
- Load and save chord layouts for your favorite songs.
- Play along with music from your phone! Solo will search your phone for music tracks and allow you to play along with the selected track playing in the background.
- Lyric overlays allow you to search the web for lyrics and chords for almost any song, and displays the lyrics as a semi-transparent overlay on top of the guitar. This is a great way to learn how to play new songs.
- Solo supports multi touch for phones running Android 2.0 or higher, making strumming and chord changing even easier.
- A variety of interface tweaks are supported, allowing you to customize the app to a playing style that best suits you.
- Solo is updated regularly, with many new features added since it originally came to the Android Market.
