New Feature: Slides And Bends Support

We're proud to announce that we've added support for slides and bends.

Slides and bends are among the basic guitar techniques. If you didn't hear about them before, you can check out Wikipedia articles: slides, bends

Among well-known examples of using these techniques are: All Along The Watch Tower (Jimi Hendrix),  Wanted Dead Or Alive (Bon Jovi), My Favourite Game (The Cardigans) and much much more.

With slides and bends support most of the songs on Songsterr will sound more realistic, and everybody will be able to see, hear and try to repeat these effects by themselves. Enjoy!

New Feature: All Songs Navigation

We are happy to announce a new feature requested by many of our users recently - All Songs Navigation.

Clicking "All" link to the left of the AZ Navigation panel will open up a list of all the Songsterr songs with 2 popups allowing to filter songs by complexity and sort them by artist name, addition date or popularity. Filters like Most Popular Beginner Songs or Recently Added Advanced Songs are now just a few clicks away from the homepage.

We are also excited to welcome you to our official feedback forum - a place to share, discuss, and vote for feature requests. We really want to hear from you!

Major navigation improvements

We are getting ready to add more, much more songs to Songsterr and have just launched a major update with a bunch of new features that will hopefully streamline navigation of a large collection of songs.

What's new?
  • One simple field to search by both artist names and song titles.
  • A-Z navigation.
  • Classification of songs by complexity (beginner, intermediate, advanced).
  • Just Added block for quick overview of new songs.
  • Just a little bit of "Ads by Google". Sorry for this one but it will hopefully help us deliver more features and songs.
Bends, slides, and other articulations are almost there. Stay tuned!
