MusicLab RealGuitar is a virtual guitar that allows musicians to create songs and arrangements on the computer. The program features a multi-layer technology that allows users to use the built-in samples that are based on the sound of a real guitar. Another feature is the floating fret position technology, which enables musicians to recreate chords on 104 frets by using the keyboard. With the use of a MIDI controller or a MIDI keyboard, users can also perform different guitar techniques, such as bending, plucking, strumming, and sliding. The application also offers five performance modes for playing – chords, solo, bass and pick, bass and chord, and harmony.

MusicLab RealGuitar comes with a chord editor that allows users to make changes to the fingering of the chords. The pattern manager also comes with a pattern library containing more than 1200 styles for accompaniment. With the built-in techniques, users can also create unique compositions. Some of the techniques included in the application are muted strums, mono bend, trill, hammer on, strum layers, and reverse bend.
