Playing the guitar is a great hobby! Unfortunately, up to 85% of people that learn to play a music instrument quit, before they reach a reasonable level. Why? Because in the beginning, the exercises are rather boring. This is why Ovelin developed WildChords, an iPad game that gets people hooked on practicing guitar. It is played with a real acoustic or electric (non-distorted) guitar, and you donâ€™t need any additional equipment.
