The Gibson iPhone app has passed an important new landmark, the company has revealed.

On the manufacturer's official Twitter feed, it was announced that the award-winning application, which comes with chord charts and a tuner, has now been downloaded more than three million times by musicians across the world.

The free app has been described by Gibson as a "must-have" for guitarists of all abilities and styles.

It offers users guitar lessons, as well as a tap tempo metronome which lets owners select a specific beat per minute.

Exclusive news, features and competitions are also provided via a link up with Gibson's official website.

The app, which is also compatible with the iPod Touch, includes more than 30 chord charts with finger positions that are easy to read.

A standard and chromatic tuner is also provided to those who download the technology.

"For iPhone users, the Gibson headstock inlay will automatically change colour indicating if the string is sharp, flat or in tune," a statement from the company explained. "For iTouch users they can turn the 'Play Notes' option on so they can hear the appropriate [sound] since they do not have a microphone facility."
