The guitar has always been an instrument of unparalleled popularity with a good number of young people. However, the complexity of learning discourages many novices, who quickly give up on the idea and concentrate on other things. Fortunately, the technological prowess is there to facilitate their initiation and offer a much more enjoyable way to learn the basics of this instrument. Called Fret Zeppelin, this gadget facilitates the memorization of the various chords thanks to a simple play of light.
Fret Zeppelin is a Kickstarter project that aims to make it easier to play a guitar using a clever LED system. It’s not rocket science, the guitar is an extraordinary instrument and many have tried it. However, as with many instruments, few people actually become good at it. And while the guitar learning curve isn’t the hardest there is, there are already plenty of manuals, videos and forums to help you improve. Anyway, this gadget really stands out. Attaching effortlessly to your guitar, Fret Zeppelin lights up to show you where to place your fingers. Whether you are a beginner or a more or less accomplished guitarist, this accessory will undoubtedly improve your talent.
Fret Zeppelin : become a guitar pro in no time!
Directly attached to the neck, the LEDs light up to show you which parts of the string to press. The system works with all types of guitars, both acoustic and electric. It has the advantage of not having to watch a manual or video while practicing. Connected to your smartphone, Fret Zeppelin uses an application to illuminate the different places where you can place your fingers, adjust your guitar, view the chords and compose your own melodies. It will soon be available on Android and iOS. The Zeppelin Freight’s LED system also has different levels of light to help you in every step of your learning process. You will be able to learn and memorize your chords with much more ease than with a video on YouTube. In addition, Fret Zeppelin will teach you how to make transitions faster so you can play even faster.
Here are some of the features:
- Simple and practical concept: smaller than standard guitar frets, Fret Zeppelin does not interfere with strings or playing style.
- 4.6 million color combinations: small LED bulbs, including color selection, intensity and effects, can be controlled with the app.
- Learning made easy: Fret Zeppelin is the personal trainer that will help apprentice guitarists learn quickly without books, videos or sheet music.
Already available for pre-order
After five years of development, Fret Zeppelin was finally implemented thanks to more affordable technological costs. The project’s creators were asking for $48,000, and have already reached $248,000 in pledges. Quite impressive when you consider that the “Kickstarter rate” is quite high. Please note that the Zeppelin Freight also works for left-handed people. With this new toy, we’ll all be able to play Eric Clapton or Carlos Santana to the ladies, with a good solo of “Hotel California”. This may not please the old-timers, but you have to live with the times.
Deliveries are expected to start in October 2017, but you can already pre-order it ($199) to get it first! For more information, please visit
