March 16, 2010

Universal Music Group (UMG),the world's leading music company, today announced the launch of Six-String on the App Store. Six-String is a new iPhone and iPod touch music app that delivers a dynamic guitar experience and includes chart-topping hits culled from real studio masters.

Six-String authentically recreates the guitar playing experience using tracks gathered from the real studio masters. So for the first time ever, players are provided with a truly engaging musical experience as they are required to pluck, strum and change chords. And since no experience is required, anyone anywhere can now play the guitar like a pro along with their favorite songs instantly!

Six-String comes with six chart-topping tracks, but players can easily add songs from the in-app store as they progress. The tracks included are: BON JOVI's "You Give Love A Bad Name"; TOM PETTY's "Runnin' Down A Dream"; FALL OUT BOY's "Thnks Fr Th Mmrs"; PETER FRAMPTON's "Show Me The Way"; and ORIANTHI's "According To You". It also contains the SCORPIONS' "Raised on Rock", from their new album, "Sting in the Tail", being released on March 23, which will be the first time a SCORPIONS recording has been included in any of the music game franchises.

The Six-String app also features more than 20 additional game tracks available for In-App purchase, including songs from 3 DOORS DOWN, ANGELS AND AIRWAVES, BECK, DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL, G.B.H., GARY GO, HINDER, HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, KAISER CHIEFS, MAROON 5, NO DOUBT, PAPA ROACH, RISE AGAINST, ROBERT PALMER, SUM 41, WOLFMOTHER and many more to come! In addition, users can purchase the corresponding song, video and ringtone from iTunes through the app where available.

In Six-String, there are 2 different play modes: Practice Mode or Studio Mode. Practice Mode lets the player get familiar with a song and Studio mode allow the player to compete, earn points and work up to Six-String's high-score rankings. Moreover, there will be a contest running through the first month of the game's release, whereby the person with the highest score on the Six-String Hall of Fame leaderboard via the Plus+ network at exactly 6:00 p.m PST on April 6, 2010 will be eligible to win a Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster.

The app allows users to play each track at three different levels of difficulty. The sound can be adjusted to hear only the guitar or the guitar against the full master recording. Additionally, the game offers a free, thriving Six-String social community (via Plus+ network) which adds more excitement and competition to the game, allowing users to challenge each other's prowess on any song. In addition, players may choose to post score updates via Facebook, Twitter and email.
