Ultimate Guitar Tabs, hitting the Marketplace chords

Ulitmate Guitar USA is offering Ultimate Guitar Tabs over at the Windows Phone Marketplace. The app is an easy, well laid out means for viewing guitar, bass and drum tabulatures and chords.

Tapping into the Ultimate-Guitar.com database, Ultimate Guitar Tabs has access to over 300,000 tabs. You can search tunes two ways. Simple Search finds your tabs by artist or song title. Advanced Search allows you to search by tab type, a portion of the song, difficulty level, tuning, and rating. Other key features of the Ultimate Guitar Tabs includes:

  • UG Authorization: Sign in with your Ultimate Guitar account, or create a new one directly from the app.
  • Favorites: Add Tabs to your Favorites to make them available for offline browsing. Synchronize Tabs between the app and your online account!
  • Chords: View chord diagrams while reading Chords, transpose chords easily.
  • Tab Packs: Collections of pre-selected Tabs. Tab Packs are based on skills level (Easy, Medium, Advanced), music genres (Rock, Metal, Punk), and special occasions (Love songs, Xmas songs).
  • Top 100 Tabs list for each Tab type (Guitar, Bass, Chords, Drums or overall).
  • Auto-scroll feature: View Tablature in the text viewer using the handy Auto-Scroll functionality, the App will scroll Tabs for you!
  • Random Tab: Load Tab for a random song.

Ultimate Guitar also supports both landscape and portrait modes. If you're learning the guitar or wanting a hefty database of tunes to play, Ultimate Guitar is worth a look. The only downside is that there's no trial version available but the full version is only running $2.99. You can find Ultimate Guitar Tabs here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.

Thanks goes out to Sean for the tip!
