THE RIGHT VOICINGS FOR THE CHORDS YOU KNOW
Guitar players use specific chord voicings. Strum GS‑2 recognizes the chords you play on the keyboard and automatically maps them onto the fretboard. The chord library includes basic and extended chords available in open, movable, power chord, or drop voicings. Play the chords you know and Strum voices them as a guitarist would.
PLAYING GUITAR ON A KEYBOARD HAS NEVER BEEN EASIER
Strumming is not easily reproduced on a keyboard, and guitar techniques such as palm muting, scratching and sliding are simply not available on a keyboard. Strum GS‑2 now does all of this for you!
