Good guitar or bad lyre?

Music On: Acoustic Guitar is like Charlie Brown's Christmas tree – its beauty is in the eye of the beholder. If you know your way around a fret board, you may see it as a fun tool to mess with when you can't lug your giant six-string around with you...

Actually looks pretty good,,,,,,,,,,,
Update 9;12.2010
Downloaded the other day and glad I did. Lots of stuff packed into this $2 download, great aesthetics. I like this better then Jam Session as you can strum each string. Hopefully there will be an electric guitar version soon.

9 out of 10 for me, can't find any fault with this app.

@james newton i've seen a video.The sound is alright,but the controls look complicated,so that's why i said 'not worth buying'
Question james newton
Are you going to review this game soon?

I downloaded this a few hours ago and am really surprised at the amount of stuff jammed into this 200 point "app". Not only are there many chords to choose from when programing the sounds to the 4 directional buttons, but the option to just pluck a few strings at a time gives the chords themselves some diversity. So even if you choose, say, an E of some kind, you can either strum the 6 strings to create the chord, or just a few strings to add some personal touches. Oh, and you can "palm mute" the strings for further, on-the-fly customization.

I guess I'd give it a 8 of 10, if I were to review it. If you liked the keyboard, you'll definitely enjoy this...especially if you use Audacity or some other music-capturing device. Good stuff!
