BluesMachine is a multi-touch guitar-like user interface for 12-bar Blues improvisation.
Explaining MULTI-TOUCH: BluesMachine can sound up to 2 improvisation notes at the same time.
Explaining GUITAR-LIKE USER INTERFACE: BluesMachine's Blues scale is derived from the one on the guitar fingerboard. But (and this is an important point) notes out of the scale are not accessible.
Explaining 12-BAR BLUES IMPROVISATION: You will improvise over a 12-bar Blues accompaniment of (optionally) bass and drums, whose chord progression you can select from a list of 3 very classic ones.
