FEATURES:
You can play in 2 different modes: Practice or Studio Mode. You can challenge your friends in both.

Practice Mode lets you get familiar with a song so you can unlock it for Studio mode. Here the pressure is off - it's just you, jamming along to the song, developing your skills, and learning the song. Then progress onto Studio Mode, where you can compete, earn higher points and work your way up the Six-String leaderboards.

You can play each track at 3 different levels of difficulty. You can also adjust the sound to hear only your guitar or your guitar against the full master recording.

COMMUNITY:
Easily join the free, thriving Six-String social community ('Plus+ Network') to add more excitement and competition to the game. Find and add new friends to your buddy list and challenge them even if they are across the country. Compete against your friends to earn a top ranking or compete to be the best Six-String player overall, the best in your region or the best on a specific song.

Post score updates via Facebook, Twitter & E-mail. Send 'smack talk' if you win or lose a challenge from your buddy. Earn achievements and bonus points to improve your point total and ranking. Keep your rank high to compete for occasional prize offerings!

Six-String offers a new and exciting twist on rhythm-based games: it's the most realistic guitar playing game to date. If you think you've got what it takes to shred to your favorite songs, get Six-String now and show your talent to the world!

Looks really good. Are there just the five songs for $4.99? How much is each additional song?

Each song is - according to the AppStore - 0.99$.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

This game looks fantastic - I like to play guitar myself - but it is not available in the German AppStore... sheeshhhh....!

I would have TOFTTed it, but I can't find it.

Thanks...I guess I should have figured that. They might have been better off going free or .99 for the first five songs then.

As is, if you don't like the game you are out $5 and if you love the game you might end up spending $25.

Don't think that many people will pay 5 bucks for 6 songs - when they can have over 30 tracks for the same price with Rock Band.

I think there will be more songs added or a sale soon.

But I did a search again. Nothing in the German store - this is friggin' racist!
Well, maybe its because UMG has no copyright in Germany for these songs.

BeatRider Touch is the only rhythm game worth buying, as you use your own songs. The note generation works pretty well too.

Does anyone know why there is always a slash through the YouTube link on my iPhone, my laptop is being repaired and my iPhone is currently my only source for toucharcade. I did a YouTube search and the video didn't show up there and all I get is a broken link through toucharcade.
