I would put chocolate just above peanut butter, but I agree:  peanut butter is one of God's greatest gifts to mankind.

OK.  Much better.  I was seriously (and honestly) confused.

I recall seeing something like this for sale some 40 years ago on a late-night TV commercial, but don't remember what it was called.  Maybe this was it.

Re: CORDBUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can maybe see the merit in this product as a training tool. On the website it says something to the affect of using it for awhile and then you won't need it anymore. I would say save your money and just practice. No product is gonna make you learn better than actually doing it. Pushing a button is far different than fretting a string. And this thing looks like it makes the next 3 times as thick so it's hard to get your hand a round.

But, if it works for you then by all means go for it.

Beer is in a class by itself.  Apologies for not being clear on that point.

Re: CORDBUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Makes me think of the magnus chord organs in the 60s. If you could read numbers and letters. You could play a song in 5 minutes. It is pressing the corresponding letters and numbers. Not really learning to play. Try playing without it and see if it works

Re: CORDBUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think the best invention ever is the guitar. Pardon me if you find that vanilla.  Chord buddy won't do much for your right hand technique, which after 5 minutes of pratice probably sucks (no offense). So put down the Chord Buddy and pick up a guitar and Bud, buddy. Follow my simple 5 step method and you'll be playing guitar FO REAL in no time at all:

1. Open Bud.
2. Pick up guitar.
3. Tune guitar.
4. Sip beer.
5. Practice for a bit.

Repeat 4 and 5 until your fingers are bleeding or you are out of beer.

Yes, a great invention for the disabled. But is the person who put up the post disabled? I used to practice 4-5 houirs a night when I was first learning. It seems sad to think that all of us that practiced for hours on end can be replaced by a plastic push button adapter.

Re: CORDBUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is new about this?

Christmas 1958 I recieved a plastic 4 string guitar with a similar piece of gear fitted. As an 11 year old newbie, it did mean I could quickly play a song, but it is no substitute for being able to play properly.

I am in full agreement with Baldguitardude but for Bud I would substitute Cristal!!

Re: CORDBUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think for the person that really is serious about learning to play it is a waste but if you want to get  someone interested in playing it should be a great tool. Remember the first time you picked up a guitar and tried to play an E chord and wanted to quit cause it was too hard. I think if I had this to poke me to play more it would have worked great. Definitely for those that have never ever played guitar, or if you have a spare guitar take it with you to show and jam with young kids teaching them the joy of playing songs with others. Not all kids have this opportunity. It would be perfect for Jeff (Topdown) with the "Instruments4life". By the way, Kudos Jeff, it is a great thing you are doing. smile

Re: CORDBUDDY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My mother was a guitar player all of her life.  When I was in second grade she bought my first guitar with one of these simular things on it.  They are OK if your a kid I guess, but I'll keep playing my Fender Stratocaster thank you.
