Resources: Thumbjam for iPad

In my work I make frequent use of an iPad because is offers such an intuitive interface for people with limited manual dexterity. The application that I use the most is called Thumbjam, a flexible musical instrument that has some very nice sounds.  The main reason that I use it so much is that is is so adaptable musically – I can easily select pentatonic or chord based scales and can quickly transpose the key so that the participant can play along with me while play the tenor guitar, a format for natural interaction that I have found to be very effective.  The older generation do not seem to be put off by an iPad in he same way that a computer may make them feel.  People tend to get stuck in and quickly enjoy the music making.
