Samick Partners with App Developer Musopia to Offer Popular Guitar Teaching App

December 23, 2014

GALLATIN, TN January 9, 2015 – In an effort to create a greater community of guitar players Samick Music Corporation has teamed up with Finland based app developer Musopia to offer the popular FourChords guitar teaching app free with the purchase of any Samick guitar.

Very much designed for beginners, FourChords has a dead-simple interface that boils popular songs down into digestible chunks. It starts by naming the main chords used, diagramming how to form them and letting the user play back a sample to hear what each chord sounds like. Once familiar with them, you can play along with the song as the app flows through each chord in a Guitar Hero-style timeline that stays in sync with the music.

“While Samick has long been known as a great guitar manufacturer, we also understand how critical it is to connect with new and future players,” stated Tony De La Rosa, Product Manager/Artist Relations. “The FourChords app looks as cool as a video game, is easy to use, and is mobile – the perfect combination for connecting with a culture that wants and expects mobile access to just about anything that’s displayed on a screen.”

A 30-day free trial to the FourChords app will be included with the purchase of any Silvertone, Greg Bennett, or Samick brand guitar purchased, including the top-selling Silvertone electric and acoustic guitar packages. The free trial also includes full access to hundreds of the most popular songs from multiple genres. Once the free trial expires, players will be given the option to subscribe by signing up for regularly priced week, month, or six month billing.
