At some point and time in your life you’ve probably wanted to play an instrument… not that easy is it? Well, thanks to Android you can learn the basics of playing several different instruments right from your phone. Without further ado, Sosoactive.com proudly presents its list of the Top 5 Free Android Musical Applications.
If you’ve ever wanted to play guitar there’s only one Android App for you and that’s Solo by Coding Caveman. Solo is the cream of the crop in Guitar simulators and lets you try 3 different guitars with acoustic, classical, and electric. You can play on your own, browse the massive chord library or even play along with the music on your phone. There is a free version of the app you can try called Solo Lite while the full version is simply dubbed Solo and will set you back $3.99
Next up on our list is the instrument parents love to hate… the drum kit. They may not want one in their house, but they won’t mind nullapp’s little Drumkit one bit. This handy musical app has around 16 different drums and lets you setup your kit just the way you like it. There is an ad that runs across the top, but I only tapped it once in about an hour of finger drumming. Drumkit is a great app, it’s totally free, and it even comes with a Cowbell!
3. Piano Master
Piano Master is one of those game/app hybrids that teaches you to play the piano while letting you have tons of fun. It lets you follow several famous songs in a musical game that has you tap the correct keys in sequence ala Guitar Hero. The free version only gives you 7 songs to try, and if you’re like those (you will) the full version gives you more tunes for only $2.90. If you really, really like the app the folks at B77 Entertainment have some extra packs as well in the form of Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin. You can find the free version, paid version, and extra packs on Google Play for free.
4. My Ukulele
The Ukulele may not be for everyone, but it’s one of those instruments everyone’s curious about. If you fall into the latter category you may want to check out My Ukulele form Borce Trajkovski. My Ukulele has 6 sound effects, studio quality sound, string bending, auto pluck, and a slew of other options that put other Ukulele apps to shame. If you want to unleash your inner Tiny Tim you can check out My Ukulele for free on Google Play.
The last Android app on our list won’t teach you how to play anything on your phone, but it will help to tune almost any instrument in your possession. gStrings is the app to have if you want to tune something, and it will tune everything from guitars and violins to pianos and wind instruments. This chromatic tuner really does it all and even has orchestra tuning and comes with a pitch pipe. You can pick up the ad-supported free version of gStrings or go for the full version sans ads for only $3.00.
