4.0 out of 5 stars Good place to start but by no means a miracle device, July 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased the chord buddy after seeing it on the shark tank. Looked like an easy way to learn guitar. I bought it hoping I would lbe easy, but the installation is a pain off the bat to get right. Eventually I gave it a chance. The DVD is a good bonus. He guides you thru songs and shows u different techniques of strumming. The songbook also has 100 songs and I am learning "fifteen" by Taylor Swift right now. That song stood out most and u will surely find a song that u like to play in the book. The Blue, Red, and Yellow buttons all work great but the real issue is the Green button (C chord). It is hard to press down with my middle finger and I am surprised no one else has had this issue. If the Green button was easier on my finger I would rate it 5 stars but I'll give it 4 for now and update this if I ever learn songs. Just don't buy this and expect it to be easy. It's certainly not, but with a lot of practice u might.

If you are wondering, this is basically how it works:

Pinky - Blue - plays G - all six strings
Ring finger - Red - Plays D - Bottom 4 strings
Middle finger - Green - Plays C - bottom 5 strings
Index finger - Yellow - E minor chord - all six strings

Have you ever thought the issue might be you and your finger?
