Learning to play guitar hasn't changed in 50 years, wouldn't it be nice if there was something that made learning (or getting better) faster, easier and way more fun? Fretlight has an LED learning system built-in to the neck of a real guitar! No more back-and-forth from charts, books or video.
The Fretlight Concept
Regardless of your level, beginner to advanced, to learn or improve your knowledge of the fretboard (the neck of a guitar where you place your fingers) a player is forced to look back-and-forth from charts, books or video to identify fingering positions. The Fretlight Guitar eliminates this step by placing the information where you need it most, right under your fingers! The result is faster learning and better retention. And since the learning experience so much more enjoyable, you’ll keep going, making your guitar playing dreams a reality.
The Fretlight contains a cleverly hidden circuit board in the neck of a real guitar. Just connect the Fretlight to a PC or Mac, launch the free Fretlight Studio software and away you go. The software allows you to select chords, scales, songs and riffs, all lighting in real-time on the Fretlight Guitar. You can even slow down and 'loop' any section to learn at a pace that is comfortable and fun for you. Best of all, you’re playing a real guitar. The Fretlight guitar maintains the look, feel and sound of a standard guitar, with or without lights you’re rockin’!
The benefit for beginners to advanced players, and even teachers, has been echoed from thousands of Fretlight owners over the years and is now backed by science. Research regarding the benefits of the Fretlight Learning System has been conducted by Wichita State University and Central Florida University is now conclusive. In the May 27, 2014 edition of Frontiers in Psychology, a peer review panel representing academic institutions in the USA, UK and Belgium analyzed the methodologies and results of several case studies using Fretlight Guitars. The article supports the finding that the Fretlight Learning System enables cognitive brain processes that dramatically surpass traditional methods of learning. “By ‘offloading’ information directly onto the guitar, the Fretlight system lessens barriers to learning by reducing the cognitive transfer between diagram and instrument, i. e. less back and forth means faster learning,” said Dr. Joseph Keebler, Assistant Professor of Psychology and Director of TRACE Lab at Wichita State. The BOTTOM LINE: Faster learning and better retention with Fretlight, period. And not surprisingly, the long-term studies also found that after using a Fretlight guitar for several months, players reported that learning and playing guitar was so much more enjoyable that they wanted to keep playing and learning new things. Considering guitar industry statistics show that 80% of first-time players quit within the first 90 days, give yourself or your child the best possible chance to succeed. Learn to play with Fretlight!
