It now arrives on the PS4 with some features specific to the latest generation console. For example, the built in share functionality allows you to stream your session jams or Guitarecade exploits so fellow guitarists can non sagely in appreciation of your tasty jams (or just cover their ears and shake their heads...

Leeds born song-smith Jay Leighton recently unleashed his debut album to the public ear and it gathered a good reception. Fresh off this triumph, Leighton is now releasing a single from said LP entitled The Devil and I.
