The Chord Buddy is a complete learning system that includes:
- The Chord Buddy (pictured above)
- The Instruction Booklet
- Companion DVD with a two month lesson plan
- Chord Buddy Song Book with over 100 songs
- Works on Acoustic and Electric guitars
Think of it as training wheels for guitar.
My wife and I first saw this on Shark Tank and we were immediately intrigued.
The reality is that he found it hard on his hands and fingers to play. Further, it just didn't sound the way he had wanted. SO, when my wife and I saw this we thought it would be the perfect Christmas gift. As it happens he has been using it a lot and really enjoys it.
Once he returns from Holidays I will see if I can borrow it to do a complete review for you. That is, if I can get him to put it down lol!
Now for those of you who might say its a crutch you need to understand that the Chord Buddy is a graduating system where you remove portions of the device and start placing your fingers directly on the fret board. Like I said, training wheels for guitar. Eventually, they come off.
Here's a little interview with Travis Perry.
