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.
