Just what I was looking for!

I have wanted to learn to play the guitar since I was a kid. I was not one of those who are gifted and can just simply pick up the instrument and go. I have tried many things over the years such as instruction manuals, internet sites, etc. I have always come away frustrated. Over the years I was either too broke or too busy to take lessons. Now I’m in my fifties and I still have the desire to learn. When I came across Fret Zealot I was intrigued. I decided to give it a try and I have been totally satisfied. Learning the guitar is hard work, but this program takes you from total novice through advanced playing. The instructional videos are simple and the LED system resolved the issue I have had with finding my finger placements. It’s made so many things easy and allows me to focus on muscle memory, reading chords, strumming, timing, etc… I love this product! It was easy to put on the guitar and it syncs perfectly to my IPhone each time.

Great tool for beginner guitarist

I could not be happier about purchasing and using the Fret Zealot. I started learning and playing guitar about 2 years ago and the Fret Zealot has helped me out immensely. Learning chords,scales and songs is made very easy in my opinion. With a great library of instructional videos and songs that are available and the ability to learn and digest them at my chosen pace is awesome. Lastly their customer support is second to none. The couple of questions I’ve had since purchasing my Fret Zealot have been answered within 15 minutes of me sending an email to support and getting back the answers I needed.
I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this again if I had to, thanks for a great product Fret Zealot!

So close

I love the concept but there are a few problems.

They must and I repeat must better fit the fretboard better. This is a real problem...I had to raise the action to get it to play right. Because it doesn’t fit right...and the strips being made of rubber bending the strings as you go up the fretboard makes a difference in playability. The connection from the fretboard to the unit is a crucial connection and it is way to connection severed when it got caught on a mic was a day old! They charged me $53 to replace the led strip!

The app is too basic. I like the scales but the songs? Seriously? Every track has 5 or 6 guitar parts and they don’t all play at once. Not only that but if you are trying to learn a song you have to cycle through all the parts and try to figure out how they fit together to try to make a single track from end to end.

Did you guys look at successful tab apps (tab pro) before making yours?

I understand the complexity involved (I made the same thing for my keyboard...but you probably went with a binary protocol making conversions from midi or tabs a freakin nightmare.

Cmon guys get it together. You spent a lot of time on the hardware charging us $200 to recoup costs...but you have compromised the usability by cutting corners!

You can still recover, but if you want to cater to serious players you need to make a pro level product.

Developer Response ,

Hi RSH- thank you for the feedback! We'd actually love to talk to you directly if you email (or we'll try and email you) so we can continue to fine tune Fret Zealot (both hardware and app).

Regarding when you caught your unit on a stand and broke it- we have questions. We purposely made the audio cable able to disconnect at either end for exactly that reason, so we're surprised the cable broke instead of the cable just releasing.

For songs, we spent 1000s of hours on a transcoder and it's getting better every month. We don't source from tabs (they don't have timing data), so we're coming from MIDI. It is not a simple binary protocol by any means.

Yes- we know tab pro. We're trying to talk to them to have them incorporate our SDK rather than us trying to reiterate all the hard work they've done. It's a great help if you email them and say you want them to support us! Our SDK would let you use Fret Zealot right from their existing app :-). We already have a few other partners lined up for this, including GuitarPro files. That's next on our development plan!

Hopefully we'll be in touch to discuss these items further!
