New Scale Library Launched to Members

By JamPlay, LLC January 11th, 2013 For Immediate Release
Google+, a leading online educational platform for aspiring guitarists, has updated its scale library to now offer multiple instrument configurations (6, 7, and 8 string for guitar; 4, 5, and 6 string for bass), midi playback of notes, handle multiple tunings, and give students the ability to dynamically highlight scale patterns in any key.

An Ohio-based company founded in 2006, JamPlay utilizes high definition video to present guitar lessons to students across the world. As of March, 2013, the company offers over 1000 hours of video based lessons from 56 instructors, all accessible online on the desktop or mobile device. Additionally, JamPlay offers a suite of professional software tools to aid students in the learning process.

Completed in 2008, JamPlay's scale library is one of the few libraries on the web to offer advanced features such as enharmonic note recognition and pattern highlighting in any key. The library offers fretboard diagrams for any scale in the music library, in any key, and in various tunings. The most recent update also expands the library to 6, 7, and 8 string guitars and expands its offering of tunings.
