Only a few days ago Gibson Guitar, the world's premiere musical instrument manufacturer and leader in music technology, released the highly anticipated Gibson Guitar App and has witnessed an unprecedented response to its release.

With well over 460,000 downloads in the first few days, the recently released Gibson Guitar App is currently ranked as Apple's # 1 Top Free App in the Music category, passing the ever-popular Pandora App to take the #1 spot.

With the continued surge of interest from music enthusiasts the Gibson Guitar App continues to climb and is currently ranked 8th overall for Apple's Top Free Apps.

The free to download Gibson Guitar App is available exclusively for all Apple iPhone and iPod Touch users directly from the Apple App Store.

Over the past two years over 3 Billion Apps have been downloaded around the world; the Gibson Guitar App cements Gibson's reputation as the industry's leader in innovation and music technology.

The Gibson Guitar App includes a number of special features, such as a traditional chromatic tuner which starts in All Notes mode that tracks whatever is played.

Owners of the App can choose a tuning on the Mode page so the tuner will only track notes for that particular tuning. Also included is a standard chromatic tuner, a simple tuner which allows less advanced users to tune to Standard tuning Open G, Open D etc by touching the key.

For iPhone users, the Gibson headstock inlay will automatically change color indicating if the string is sharp, flat or in tune.

For iPod Touch users they can turn the Play Notes option on so they can hear the appropriate tuning since they do not have a microphone facility.

The Gibson app also features a standard metronome that allows users to choose a specific BPM or tap the screen three times to automatically set the tempo.

Other key features of the app include over 30 chord charts with finger markings to help the user with mastering the chord.

For those who prefer to learn new guitar riffs, licks or chord sequences via video tuition can now have that option from their Gibson App.
