[NAMM] George Harrison App
Bandwdth with the George Harrison Estate announces the release of an iPad app celebrating the guitarist and his guitar collection.
The Guitar Collection: George Harrison iPad app will be released through iTunes on February 23, two days before Harrison's birthdate.
The app brings George Harrison's private guitar collection to life through photographs, detailed descriptions, audio, and video footage. "For the first time, with the help of unique 360° imaging by photographer Steven Sebring, fans can see the scratches, dings, and worn threads on the guitars as if they were themselves holding the instruments," the company says.
The history of each guitar is laid out in detail; including the origin of the guitar, when and how it became part of Harrison's collection, modifications he made to it and why each was important in creating his sound. Songs from his catalogue are organized by the guitars used on each track.
The video section of the app contains footage of Ben Harper, Josh Homme, Mike Campbell, and Dhani Harrison each playing and showcasing the guitars and exploring their feel and tone. In addition, Conan O'Brien and Dhani discuss what make these guitars special.
Pricing & Availability:
The app will sell for $9.99 at the Apple App Store.
