With the growing numbers of guitar-based iPhone apps such as the RiffRaters, Gigdaddy, Rectools Pro and FX Deluxe, it is becoming increasingly simple to show the world your creativity without the need for rooms and rooms of tech detritus.
Whether sketching quick ideas via an app like the Voice Memo or attempting something more advanced, the Guitarbud will make your job even easier. Take, China's D.I.Y. sensation PixieTea, who has become a huge YouTube star with her bubblegum-pop song, ABCD using only her iPhone.

PRS's JamAmp app is also well worth a look. It's an amp simulator, tuner and training tool all in one and lets you change the pitch and speed of playalong tracks.
The Guitarbud is available at www.headlinemusic.co.uk for £29.95
The JamAmp is $9.99 at the Apple App Store
