[Partnership] Ultimate-Guitar

There must be quite a few music enthusiasts using Spotify who are also playing some instrument. So what about an app that enables easy use of Ultimate-Guitar.com together with Spotify? For example I play bass and often learn new songs by playing along with them. Now my practicing is often confusing since I have to find the song on Spotify/Youtube, then go search for the tab/chords, then start the song, then change to the tab again. A Spotify app would make this so much more convenient.

I have created an app like this. It's very alpha and not released yet. I will probably release it as open source unless there are any legal issues with that.

Also, it's only a Spotify app. It doesn't require any backend system or similar.

What do you guys think of this idea I sent in yesterday as a tweak on your idea? Hi guys, I´m one of those guys who is sittin in the sofa flippin between Spotify and Ultimate-Guitar when i´m playing guitar. And what I really miss is a sync between these two apps regarding playlist. Wouldn´t it be really nice if the chords who is saved in th U-G app could sync with a playlist in Spotify with these songs or the other way around? Think of it like if you hear a great song on spotify and you just push a button like "ad to Ultimate-Guitar playlist" and when you opens the UG app you will already find it there :-) Further on I think this could be connected with Facebook to se what your friends are playing as well? For the record i´m not looking for a new app, just a synchronized playlist. Hope all you guys like this idea :-) /Jimmy

It would be awesome!

 

But I have found a problem: imagine that the player and Sporify user have got only one instrument, so de tuning could be standard or Dropped. It would be very annoying to tune everytime that the user is going to play another song with a different tuning.

The solution could be make the app with de option os changing the tab according to the tune, or just create playlists with different styles and tuning.

 

Thank you for reading, and sorry for my english (I'm not a foreign user)
