    The i-Tab can be mounted on the guitar’s headstock, a mic stand or cabled up to a TV and will run through the song while you play, acting as a memory aid or a learning tool when trying to learn an unfamiliar song.

    The i-Tab will similarly help to guide you through the twists and turns of any of the 2000 plus songs that can be stored on its 4Gb of internal memory. According to its designers, “it doesn’t come with a talent module or ability pack” but the device is geared towards helping “you learn a song and to show you chords and lyrics while you get the hang of it” or “to act as a prompt and a memory aid when you play until you have the song down 100% and committed to memory”.

    The i-Tab can either be snapped over the strings at the headstock of your guitar via an optional headmount (available for $24.95) or hooked up to a TV for big screen playback via the included TV-out cables. The headmount can be detached from its clamp to be fitted onto a mic stand if necessary. The device will play audio and video files too, in fact the manufacturers will be making some free song tutorial videos available via its online store when the product is launched later this month.

    The i-Tab store will also be the place to purchase and download thousands of high quality, approved and copyright cleared tabs. A PC-based wizard interface is currently in development which will cater for custom song creation, allowing users to load the device with their own creations.
