British site LickLibrary has built its business around online guitar lessons, with video tutorials on how to play thousands of tracks. Now there’s an iPad app for that. LickLibrary worked with Release Mobile on the app – LickLibrary Killer Guitar Licks – which is a free download on Apple’s App Store. Some lessons are delivered as free videos in the app, while others are sold as in-app purchases together with backing tracks to play along to: £7.99 gets you packs based on Jimmy Page or Ritchie Blackmore, for example. “We already offer world class tutors, the ability to interact with other musicians worldwide and a massive range of inspiration and learning resources based around streaming and video,” says LickLibrary MD Kim Waller. “Now by teaming up with Release Mobile and launching the iPad app we are able to offer more interactive features, adding value to our existing videos with the tab and supporting guitarists with a truly scalable digital solution.” There are a growing number of music education apps in 2013, with licensing deals making the sector of growing interest for music publishers in particular.
