The Guitar Collection: George Harrison iPad app, celebrating the guitarist and his historical guitar collection, is out now!
The app is selling for $9.99 at the iTunes App Store. You can see the trailer for the app at the official George Harrison website here.
The Guitar Collection: George Harrison brings the musician's private guitar collection to life through photographs, detailed descriptions, audio, and video footage. For the first time, with the help of unique 360° imaging by photographer Steven Sebring, fans can see the scratches, dings, and worn threads on the guitars. The history of each guitar is laid out in great detail, including the origin of the guitar, when and how it became part of Harrison's collection, modifications he made to it and why each was so important in creating his distinctive sound. Accompanying audio and recordings from Harrison himself as he introduces many of the guitars and plays sections of songs, allow the user to appreciate the personalities of each instrument.
The app features a number of Harrison's best known guitars, including:
- the Gretsch G6128 Duo Jet
- the Gibson J-160E
- the Rickenbacker 360/12
- the Fender Stratocaster named 'Rocky'
- the Ramirez Classical, the Fender Rosewood Telecaster
- the Zemaitis Lotus 12-String
- Additional guitars will be added to the app in the future.
Also featured is video with Ben Harper, Josh Homme, Mike Campbell, and Dhani Harrison, each playing and showcasing the guitars and exploring their feel and tone. Conan O'Brien and Dhani discuss what make these guitars so exceptional, and guitar great Gary Moore shares his views on what made George Harrison such a distinctive and influential guitar player.
