TC Electronic Facebook, Twitter, and subscribers will be notified of when the app becomes available first.

Risskov, Denmark (May 27, 2010) -- TC Electronic has announced that the first 25,000 copies of the soon-to-be released PolyTune iPhone App will be free of charge. After that, it will cost $9.99. TC Electronic Facebook fans, Twitter followers, and subscribers to the TC Electronic Guitar Newsletter will be the first to know exactly when the PolyTune iPhone App is available on the App Store.

The PolyTune iPhone App is a 1:1 port of the PolyTune pedal tuner, and it offers the exact same tuning technology and features. The PolyTune is the world’s first polyphonic guitar tuner and has a chromatic tuner as well, with a +/- 0.5 cent accuracy.

When using the PolyTune iPhone App with an iPhone or an iPad, the internal microphone allows for instant tuning of acoustic guitars, but for tuning electric guitars, a converter cable (mini-jack connector to female 1/4" jack connector) is required.

The original PolyTune pedal was introduced at the 2010 NAMM Show.

  • Polyphonic tuner
  • Chromatic tuner
  • Drop-tunings (dropped tunings from E-flat down to B supported in Polyphonic mode)
  • Works with both guitar and bass (both Polyphonic and Chromatic mode works for both guitar and 4-, 5- and 6-string bass)

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
