'Music on: Electric Guitar' (NDS) Announced, Coming Soon - Screens

Transform your Nintendo DSi system into the most incredible electric guitar and your stylus into a pick. Amaze you how easy it's to play your favorite songs, even if music isn't your thing!

Aside from the +950 chord catalog, that you can see and hear, and an unbelievable real sound, you also have 3 pedal effects: Distortion, Flanger & Delay, a special screen for melodies and 32 chord short-cuts.

Electric Guitar has been developed to grant the wishes of the users and followers of the Music on Series. "We've received a lot of messages from fans asking for new titles, and this one was at the back of our heads already. Nacho and I pushed to produce this guitar, for the fans and for the series completion” says Eva Gaspar, Business Manager of Abylight. “I specially love the sound and graphics, how you can play with the pedal effects and nobody telling you -don't touch that!-”.

An advance play mode has been specially produced for Electric Guitar in order to give musicians and amateurs the chance to perform melodies easily. Also, rearranging the pedals will produce a different sound result, as in a real guitar would happen.

Being the second guitar of the Series, some user's issues have been readdress in this version. Now it is possible to assign up to 32 chords using the buttons of the console, not only the Control Pad.
