Guitar Now: The Complete Guitar Learning System
"Be a Guitar Player, Not a Guitar Quitter"
Have you always wanted to play guitar yet never started because the task of LEARNING seemed so daunting? Maybe you started but quit soon after due to frustration, difficulty remembering where to put your fingers, or the pain of building calluses? Well you're not alone.
More than half the people who start learning to play the guitar ultimately quit. (Even I quit once!) This statistic blew us away. So we decided to take it upon ourselves to reduce that number. That’s why we created Guitar Now: A Patent Pending 5 piece, expandable guitar learning system that shows prospective musicians how to form proper chords in a matter of minutes.
How Guitar Now Works:
Guitar Now attaches to any acoustic or electric guitar.
- The Collar wraps around the neck of your guitar right behind the nut
- The Top Plate, which sits directly on top of the nut, fastens to the Collar by a nut and bolt.
- The interchangeable Chord Inserts slide easily into the slot in the Top Plate. Each Chord Insert has tabs that extend to specific finger positions on the fret board. The raised Callus Builder buttons on the tabs are specifically designed to make it easy and natural for you to form and hold the chord.
Now all you have to do is push down on the buttons, strum with the right hand, and viola! You have just played a perfectly formed chord!
Guitar Now comes with 3 Chord Inserts, G major, D major, and C major With these three chords you can play hundreds of songs from artists like Taylor Swift, The Beatles, Foo Fighters, The Jonas Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sublime, Guns n Roses, Tom Petty, Johnny Cash and many more!
(An A minor Chord Insert will be included if we reach our stretch goal!! See ‘Stretch Goals’ below).
We have obtained quotes for all of the manufacturing, packaging, and shipping that is required to bring Guitar Now to life. Now all we need is you! See the detailed budget below.
Evolution of Guitar Now:
Guitar Now was born in a hotel room and has evolved rather dramatically!
*A minor Chord Insert to be included in all Super Early Bird, Early Bird, and Kickstarter Special reward tiers IF the Stretch Goal is met. (See below)
Risks and challenges
After spending endless hours making sure all of our costs are covered and our timeline is set, we're confident we can deliver Guitar Now in the quality as promised within the timeline outlined. With that being said, there is always the possibility of facing curve balls along the way.
We have built-in contingencies in both the budget and timeline to account for unforeseen obstacles. Although we currently have a design that is approved by the manufacturer, there is a chance that we may alter the intricacies of the final design slightly to provide a better experience for our backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
