Calling all Stevie Ray Vaughan wannabes

My husband is a pilot by day and budding musician at night, blasting tunes on his collection of electric guitars, amps, and mixers, which is really awesome when you’re trying to keep kids asleep. That’s why I’m considering picking up this cool gadget that will let him jam with just his iPhone, and let everyone slumber in peace.

The GuitarConnect cable isn’t the sexiest gift in the world, but if you’ve got a musician in the house like me, then they’ll be pretty darn excited. Made to complement the iShred app, which you can get free for iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad, it will turn his iPhone into a virtual pedal board with a metronome, tuner, and practice player. Sweet!

Best of all, you won’t have to deal with the shaking walls or vibrating floors, and if you don’t have a lot of space, he won’t have to lug out his amp for all of his practices. Or as I call it, “that really loud footrest.” -Kristen

Purchase the GuitarConnect cable at Griffin and then get the iShred app at

    Oh my god this is amazing. I live in a small apartment so I hear every note when my boyfriend likes to “jam” on this guitar or use GarageBand on the iPad. This is perfect!
