FretDeck: Guitar Learning Cards

$12,999

The FretDeck is a deck of cards that helps beginning to experienced guitar players learn how to master the guitar in every single key. 

 

 
Example in the Key of C:

The chord card will show how to play the basic chords in the key that you are playing in. This card is a good place to start if you are a beginner.

Use the key cards to understand the basics of the key you are playing in. You can see the 4 main chords that you will be able to play. You will know which fret to play the major pentatonic and minor pentatonic scales.

The fretboard maps will show all the notes on your fretboard in the key that you have slected. The [square] notes are the root notes that you are playing in. The [circle] notes are the relative minor notes in the key that you have selected.

Hey All! I'm Justin Comstock! I am the creator of the FretDeck. I have been playing the guitar for over 20 years and have studied music theory for over 12 years. I also have taught guitar lessons for over 10 years. I came up with the idea of the FretDeck one evening while watching TV, I tuned into a Stevie Ray Vaughn concert and watched this amazing guitarist play across the fretboard. I realized that he was playing pentatonic scales on the entire guitar. I thought if only other guitar players could understand the fretboard like Stevie Ray Vaughn, they could master the entire fretboard in every single key and feel more comfortable playing the guitar. 

The design is finalized and ready to print! After trying out a couple different printing companies and prototypes we finally found a printing company that is ready to print as soon as the Kickstarter is funded. The FretDeck is printed on 310 GSM French casino poker cards. 

Below you will see a timeline of where we see this campaign going once it's funded. Since we already have the final design, we just need to send the order to the printing company. We are aiming to have the FretDeck in your hands by the end of December. We will get the order sent to our printing company as soon as the FretDeck is funded. It should only take 1-2 weeks for the FretDeck to arrive in which we will get them packaged and shipped!

Risks and challenges

The risks are relatively low. We already have a company to manufacture the FretDeck. Our goal is to get them all shipped out by the end of December.

We don't foresee any delays but will continue to communicate on where we are on our timeline and of any delays.
