How will fans learn to play YOUR songs in 100 years?

We'd love to add your songs to the most revolutionary guitar app ever created!


(...just a sample of Guitar Tunes powerful features!!)


Welcome to Guitar Tunes™!  Guitar Tunes is a Guitar Education mobile app representing a completely new way for players of all levels to learn their favorite song.

For decades, the Holy Grail for learning has always been to play along with the original artist recording – no midi, no “sounds like”, no “in the style of” - just the REAL song.  Guitar Tunes is the only application that delivers this educational experience in sync with the original artist recording.

A virtual Fretboard displays fingering positions for every guitar part in real-time while listening to the original artist recording. Consumers will purchase songs as individual, digital downloads for instructional use. (Downloads can only be played through the Guitar Tunes proprietary player.) Guitar Tunes features include Tempo Control and Looping to allow players to learn at their own pace.  Built-in tuners allow players to quickly match tunings intended by the original artist.

Guitar Tunes was created by Optek Music Systems, Inc., inventors of the Fretlight Guitar.  We’ve been instructing guitar players for over 25 years – Guitar Tunes was created by, and for, players at every level.

In addition to a library of great songs, Guitar Tunes includes instructional videos, artist and genre-specific “Play Along” videos, lessons, improvising Jam-alongs and more… creating a comprehensive application that is sure to be a “must have” for every guitar player.
