HIGHLAND, UT — July 26, 2016Bluegrass Guru, an iPhone and iPad app for bluegrass musicians and enthusiasts, is now available for download on the App Store. Similar to a traditional fake book, the app helps people build a digital list of their favorite songs that can be referenced anywhere. Included in the app is a list of over 100 common jamming songs.

Build a personal song library in Bluegrass Guru

“I always wanted an easy way to get to my favorite songs when I’m at a bluegrass jam, and building a custom iOS app made the most sense,” said Boyd Timothy, Founder and Developer of Bluegrass Guru. “As a bluegrass musician, I’ve been able to learn so many more songs just by having Bluegrass Guru with me on my iPhone. It’s been so fun to make, and I hope it helps other people keep their songs more organized and accessible.”

The app provides the ability to add songs to a library that can be referenced later. People can tap a star button to mark a song as a favorite to quickly refer back to it. Also included in the app is a quick search, which gives the option to find matching titles on iTunes, YouTube, and Spotify for quick reference.

Premium features are available in the app via a Guru Membership subscription, including: set lists, song tagging, and synchronization between iOS devices for safe and secure backup. Set lists help musicians quickly prepare a list of songs for a gig or concert. Set lists can be shared with others in PDF format or easily printed to be stage ready.

Bluegrass Guru has been in development for over two years with a group of musicians using a beta version to help refine the features. The app focuses specifically on the bluegrass genre to give a best-in-class experience for bluegrass musicians.
