As a training wheel for your guitar, consider the ChordBuddy. It is a SharkTank-proven product and is an effective, all-in-one learning system, suitable for all ages when used properly.
It allows you to play guitar with just one finger! It allows you to practice one hand at a time, making learning the guitar easier. You will be able to make music as soon as the ChordBuddy is properly attached to your acoustic or electric guitar.
Within a few weeks, you’ll be removing some of the tabs and creating your own chords. You’ll be able to play any song of your choice with the guitar without using ChordBuddy in two months!
Please Note: The Chord Buddy works on most standard dreadnaught, full-size, 3/4 and 5/8-sized acoustic and electric guitars with average to low string height. This version will not work on 1/2 size guitars. Each guitar is different and installation and fitment can vary. But this version only works on right-handed guitars.
Also, the neck must be 1 1/2” minimum and 1 7/8” maximum width while from the nut to the 3rd fret should be approximately 4″. If your neck is over 1 7/8″, you need the “classical guitar” version. If it is less than 1 1/2″, the ChordBuddy will not work on your guitar. The distance from the nut to the 3rd fret should be approximately 4″, any less and the unit may not work properly.
Ray James –
I bought this for my wife as a joke for her new guitar, but after one week of her using it, she was strumming song on her guitar without using the device. So I do recommend that if you want to learn to strum a guitar using the right cords, don’t hesitate to get this device.
