**NEW** GUITAR GADGET: Plays Chords in Seconds!

According to the inventors of "Hand Chord" the number one reason people give up playing guitar is because of finger pain. So, supposedly their nifty little chord tool the hand chord takes away all the pain and frustration.

In their new KickStarter campaign they guarantee no more hurting fingers, just a soft cushy rubber feel. The device is also heralded as a shortcut for people who don't have the time to learn guitar and also a gateway for people learning guitar to help them concentrate on strumming and getting a feel for playing guitar, "without months of practice."

In a nutshell, the Hand Chord is a modular designed piece of plastic that allows you to plug in rubber pads for right or for reverse left handed players.

You can swap out components like the extra large handle for bigger hands, or replace the easy glide pads with a guitar slide attachment that makes it easy to mix slide and chords together.

So, what do you think? Watch the sales video below... Would this gadget be of any actual use for aspiring guitar players? Or, is it just a gimmicky waste of money on the road to being a "Old-Fashion" player (who actually learns to fret chords)? Leave your comments below...



  1. Stupid Junk. And, really... WHY???

  2. Learn to play chords. It might take awhile, but the mental training of understanding that a lot of learning any instrument is going to take quite a lot of time and effort. It's all about the mental concepts. Buying some plastic toy like this, which only makes ONE shape is pretty stupid in my opinion. Songs need several chord patterns, not just one.

  3. The lazy way to learn and play guitar!!

  4. This will FAIL.

  5. If you don't have the time to learn to play the guitar, you should stick to playing the radio. I believe there is market for the product although I don't see longevity of the product.
