Hello soloists! Here’s the tool you need to get your chops together. iReal b, builds accompaniments from your chord charts. Enter the chords to your song, pick a style (jazz, latin, rock), and get busy.
Beginning rhythm guitarists can use it to practice playing their strum patterns with a band. More advanced players can work on soloing over the changes.
I’ve been making all of my pop, worship, and jazz students buy it. It works on the iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) and there’s a version for the Mac too.
Here’s the version to run on your Mac. $19.99
Here’s the version for your iPod Touch or iPhone. $7.99
It doesn’t come with any tunes, but they’re quick and easy to add.
For a collection of jazz standards get these.
