"Guitar chords on-the-go!"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you are not a musician then the novelty will wear off after a short while. If you are a songwriter, this is a reasonably handy kit as another tool to use, or if you feel like writing on the go.

Good points:

  • You can save/record.
  • Its touch (strum) sensitive.
  • Has some effects units (eg. – distortion, tremelo etc..) that sound ok.
  • Really basic to use.

Bad points:

  • Only one track recording.
  • Only chords can be used (if you were able to add even just one melody track on top it would make it a million times better) .

But I reckon, if you are a song writer, the fact that it is so cheap you should get it!

Description

Players will rock out, or smoothly strum, on the lower screen of the Nintendo DS system, producing an authentic sound digitally remastered from an actual acoustic guitar. The simple interface will guide players into the various easy-to-play modes which include: Performance Mode, allowing users to sing and play along both yesterday and today’s hottest artists; Free-Play Mode, where people can play anything they chose; and Tutorial Mode where novice musicians will learn to play guitar without paying for lessons.

One of the most compelling features is the ability to record what you play and play it back, therefore making Jam Sessions virtual notepad for players to write, play and save their original music anytime, anywhere. The portability of the DS system makes Jam Sessions a complete concert-on-the-go entertainment system, perfect for parties and other social gatherings - simply hook up some external speakers via the headphone jack and you’re a rock star!

Features:
  • Use the Nintendo DS to make music just as you would with a real guitar, while experiencing authentic, remastered sound modeled after an actual acoustic guitar.
  • Free-play design allows users to learn and play ANY song ever played using an acoustic guitar. What you play is entirely up to you.
  • Play and sing songs from some of today and yesterday’s most popular artists with accompanying chords and lyrics actually built into the title.
  • No problem. Advanced tutorial modes allow novice musicians to learn how to play guitar without paying for lessons! Additional modes will help users understand chord progressions and train them to recognize chords by ear.
  • Jam Sessions is basically a pocket guitar for artists to write, play AND save original music … anytime, anywhere thus making it a virtual notepad.
  • Controls can be adjusted for both left-handed and right-handed musicians, up and down strokes can be swapped to a players’ preference.
  • A built-in effects processor lets players add reverb, chorus, low/high pass, tremolo and more to customize the sound; un-lockable backgrounds for performing well in Performance and Training modes.
