Fret Zealot – New Way to Learn a Guitar

Gadget User Rating 4.9

The Fret Zealot is a bold innovation in the world of guitar sure to unleash a new wave of players. It uses simple but impressive technology to make the guitar easy to grasp.

When I began playing guitar at 12, getting a feel for using a pick was just as difficult as wrapping my head around the fretboard. If the Fret Zealot had existed when I first picked up the guitar, there’s no telling how quickly I could have come to understand the instrument.

Shredding Made Easy

The Fret Zealot is a device that uses colored LED lights on each fret to draw your eyes and fingers to the right notes and chords. You simply attach a Bluetooth enabled box to your headstock and a fret strip to your neck connected via a short cable.

The fret strip itself is light and does not obstruct the frets or strings. It is largely unnoticeable without the lights themselves.

Our Final Opinion on this Gadget

While this product is a miracle for new guitar players, it has its place is seasoned players as well. I personally have found it useful in practicing scales as well as beefing up the rhythm. I cannot recommend this enough as a lifelong guitarist.
