Learning to play an instrument is a challenge. Building the muscle memory and attempting to master the physical symmetry of the instrument as it relates to musical scales is no easy task, especially with audible feedback of every flub.
While there is no way to entirely circumvent the onboarding curve of learning guitar, the ChordBuddy guitar learning system offers some creative tricks and shortcuts to get new students on the road to play.
ChordBuddy™ Guitar Learning System with True Tune Chromatic Tuner is the easiestand most effective guitar learning system available! It is designed to help you learn to make chords as you learn to play guitar.
ChordBuddy makes it possible to pick up a guitar and start playing songs in no time.
Attaches to the neck of electric or acoustic guitars and guides you through learning basic chord fingering positions with four brightlycolored buttons.
It works in the key of G and makes the G, C, D, and Em chords.
Remove the color-coded tabs when you are ready to start playing chords on the strings to help you start playing the guitar all on your own.
HOW TO USE
Using ChordBuddy™ is pretty straightforward. Essentially, each button color corresponds to a different chord.
Yellow= E minor
Green= C major
Red= D major
Blue= G major
As far as which fingers you should use to press down each button, you should be using:
Yellow= Index finger
Green= Middle finger
Red= Ring finger
Blue= Pinky finger
You’ll also notice that each button requires a different amount of pressure in order for the chord to play properly. The further away the buttons are from the guitar’s nut, the less pressure is required. Vice-versa, the closer you get to the nut, the more pressure is required (i.e.blue-button requires the least amount of pressurewhile theyellow button requires the most).
HOW TO INSTALL THE ChordBuddy™
Properly installing the ChordBuddy™ on your guitar seems to be one of the biggest issues that come up with this device. However, if installed properly, it should function without any issues.
Upon receiving your Chordbuddy you’ll notice that near the top of the device is a screw.
This screw must first beloosenedso that the ChordBuddy™ will properly fit around your guitar neck. Once you’re able to fit the ChordBuddy™ around your guitar’s neck you’ll need to properly position it. To do this, line up the tab paddings from the blue button so that they sitjust before the third metal fret.
Once that’s done, the next thing you’ll need to do is the angle the Chordbuddy upwardsso that none of the tabs are touching your strings (about a 30-degree angle). This will prevent any buzzing from occurring when you play an open note.
Now that your Chordbuddy is in its proper placement and angled upwards, all you need to do isretighten the screw. Be sure to make it fairly tight so that it doesn’t move around as you start playing. Once that’s done, try playing all of your guitar strings without pressing down on any buttons. If the strings all ring clearly, you’ve properly installed the Chordbuddy. Here’s what it should look like when it’s installed.
