iPhone + Guitar = iGuitar ?

iPhone guitar

What do you get if you combine a nice piece of hardware with a cool piece of software ?

It is, no doubt, the coolset use of the multi-touch interface so far…

Dubbed PocketGuitar, the software installs on all iPhone and iPod touch systems and turns the display into a guitar fretboard, allowing you to use Apple’s much-vaunted multi-touch interface to play a kind-sorta guitar-ish thing.

Possibly the coolest feature of the package is the ability to play along with music stored on your iPhone/iPod – try to keep up with Clapton during the solos, or just strum along to your favourite tunes.

I can certainly see the attraction of a neat guitar-like toy that fits in your pocket, and as a guitar player myself I’m sorely tempted by the thought of an ultra-portable system for practising my fingering (no sniggering at the back there).

Check it out in action:
