Pair up your Guitar and iPhone with Guitar Sidekick

You’ve undoubtedly heard of the phrase “There’s an app for that” by now. But what about “There’s a clamp for that!” ? Probably not, but that’s what Castiv’s recently released contraption does; it serves as a guitar mounting system that will prop up your iDevice (sorry no iPads allowed) while you serenate your hot date. The Guitar Sidekick should also come in handy for players who wish to follow along guitar lessons on YouTube, display tabs and more importantly, be able to more comfortably use the hundreds of App Store apps like  Scale Cards, GuitarToolkit and MySongbook – Lyrics & Chords. Some of its features include:

  • Easy to install and use
  • Works on acoustic, classical and electric guitars
  • Does not effect the acoustics of your
  • You can still tune your with the Sidekick on
  • Can rotate to accommodate either portrait or landscape view

For guitar players who are still learning the ropes (chords, scales etc), the Sidekick certainly has its appeal. No more trying to set your iDevice at different angles on a table just so you can take a better look at the screen.  It’s been awhile since I had some quality time with my guitar, but I’m quite eager to check this out on my Ovation and make better use of the guitar apps I own. Price? $29.99 on Amazon. Take a look at the brief Youtube slideshow after the gap…
