What a fucking retarded invention, it's not that painful, you develop finger strength over time and chords become easier to play as you PRACTICE. SMH

The real problem here is that, while it would make learning the basics of how to play a guitar less painful by giving your fingers something else to push on other than strings, it wouldn't build the necessary calluses to play and accordingly would just delay the pain, not replace it.

I mean, you couldn't play a BB King solo with this thing on the neck of your guitar, unless I'm missing something. What happens when you want to start bending notes?

Anything that prevents bends and vibrato should be burned.
As well as the ability to slide with control, it basically neuters the guitar into one hell of a boring instrument. With all the negatives of a piano or percussion instrument but none of the positives.

Holy cripes (crepes?), the fact you can get a set of flatwounds and accomplish pretty much the same goal for about $5 and still learn your basics better make this whole invention a load of rubbish. I mean, good on the guy for wanting to get more people to play but dannnng that thing's ugly.
