The Finger Friendly Guitar Keyboard. Thoughts?

August 14th, 2014

We’d like to know what you think of this video we stumbled upon yesterday.

It’s about something called Finger Friendly Guitar.

From the company:

“Finger Friendly Guitar is for those who thought playing guitar was too hard! Now there is a better way!”

… and …

“Having trouble with manipulating your fingers while playing guitar? Maybe you get sore fingers after playing. Now there is a solution!”

The contraption (which could, in fact, be called a keyboard of sorts) in the video below is the solution the company is talking about. As always, check it out and let us know what you think in the comments or on Facebook.

For more about Finger Friendly Guitar, visit fingerfriendlyguitar.com. The company also is running a Kickstarter campaign, which you can check out here.

    ok Ive been playing guitar for 13 years since i was 8 years old, i learned the good old fashion way and thats the only way to learn this device is absolute bullshit i wouldnt recommend it to a beginner maybe and old person with RA or tendinitis but to advocate that your audience or sale target is a newbie to the art of guitar that complain about their fingers hurting, simple they let the guitar rot in a closet somewhere it hurts me to my musician core but thats how she goes, dont change it, give people who lack dedication drive and dicipline in the art of guitar would love this but any real guitarist would think this is a joke, I hope it fails miserably.

    A guitar is ment to be felt with tone and bending, tapping the string etc, how can you possible do anything with this idea, why would you want to stop it from being a guitar, it’s NOT a keyboard. The guitar becomes part of you when you play.

    I’ve been playing guitar for years, and right now, the dents in my fingertips from the strings aren’t filling back in like they used to. Sometimes I have to put the guitar down, before I feel like it. If this product is affordable, I may give it a try. as a way to keep playing while I give my finger tips a rest.

      I’m assuming you work for the company, because any serious musician knows this is bullshit.

    I’ve been playing guitar for 34 years. While I applaud the inventiveness of the product, and see its usefulness to some people with severe limitations in their fingers, hands… I would never recommend this to anyone who wants to learn guitar. you can’t bend strings, try alternate fingerings, tunings… I think just contributes to the dumbing down of our society and offering people an easy way out. Playing any musical instrument well requires years of hard work and dedication.

    An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I feel that you must write more on this topic, it won’t be a taboo subject but typically people are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers gadgaafagadd
