Rolling Stone has referred to him as “a perennial dark horse contender for the title of Greatest Living Rock Guitarist,” and now blues master, erstwhile Fabulous Thunderbird and Stevie Ray big brother Jimmy Vaughan is willing to share some of his guitar-playing secrets by way of a free iPhone app.

TouchChords Jimmie Vaughan: Blues Guitar Note-by-Note serves as a complete blues tutorial for users, showing chords, finger positions and tablature, all of which are brought to life by real-time recordings by Vaughan. The app’s most recent update added new lessons on the use of minor pentatonic scales in blues soloing.

Vaughan himself has been busier with his guitar than his iPhone of late. In July, he kicked off a U.S tour in support of his first album in nine years, Jimmie Vaughan Plays Blues, Ballads & Favorites. The tour concludes this week in Southern California, including a special performance and Q&A event at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles.
