Toronto, Ontario (March 16, 2010) -- The mobile world doesn't revolve entirely around the iPhone (though if you have one, you should definitely check out the Premier Guitar app).

Guitar Studio features:
• 30,000+ Guitar Chord Library
• Single Key chord lookup from Tab or Chordpro display

• Displays Chordpro Music Files
• Auto scrolling display for hands free playing
• Tab looping for rehearsing one section of a song

Here's what LCA Mobile had to say about their Guitar Studio app:
LCA Mobile has announced the release of Guitar Studio for BlackBerry mobile devices. The application allows Guitar enthusiasts to look up guitar chords, access their play-along music collections and compose songs while on the go.

Guitar Studio is easy to use and has powerful features that both beginners and professional musicians will love. The application supports the display of both Chordpro and Tab music files and has an automatic scroll feature that automatically advances the music so you can play along hands free and focus on having fun! If you are learning to play and need to look up a chord, simply high highlight the chord on the screen and then click one button to see lots of ways to play it in the 30,000+ chord library.

The application also has the ability to display Tab Music files as a single seamless line and automatically scroll it across the screen at a speed that matches your playing skill. If you need to practice one part of a song over and over, simply mark a start and end point and you can automatically loop the music so you can practice it over and over again hands free.

A tone based Guitar Tuner and MP3 Player is also built in so you can play your favorite MP3 along with the Tab or Chordpro music. You can also loop the MP3 at any point you choose. Want to “lay it down?” Simply hit the record button and record yourself playing and singing, right to your BlackBerry! Got a great idea for a hit song? The comprehensive onboard Tab and Chord/Lyric editor allows you to create music while on the go! You can even edit any tab in your music collection.

Guitar Studio is available for download through BlackBerry App World.
