What parent testers had to say:
My children had the experience of testing Chord Buddy JR and have LOVED learning how to play the guitar. If you have a child who is keen on learning or trying this is the perfect system. It comes with everything you need to set your child up for success when playing the guitar.
My 7 year old son has recently been showing interest in learning to play guitar. I think that the Chord Buddy is a very nice introduction to learning basic chords and giving children some confidence by learning to play some basic songs. The packaging of the box was colorful and the quality of the equipment inside was very good. The video was easy to follow although we did need to rewind some parts during our first use. After only a couple of hours my son was playing basic chords and singing along to the music he was creating. I really like guitar and how well made it is, even though my son had dropped it it stayed in tune. The digital tuner was easy to use and the size of the guitar is perfect for little hands. I think its a great choice if your child shows interest in learning to play guitar, and is a great way to find out if your child will stay interested before investing in expensive lessons.
Chordbuddy Jr. is a complete guitar package that your child will love. I have 4 children that all spent time playing this guitar and watching the DVD tutorial. It comes with everything you need to learn and more. A beautiful guitar, digital turner, music, tutorial DVD. The DVD is fabulous. The Chordbuddy is a system to simplify learning to read and play guitar music is it helpful for 4 year olds or even 40 years olds. My husband I both learned a few songs which is amazing to me. I'd definitely recommend this guitar package to anyone young or old wanting to get started on guitar. This is something that can grow with you and your child. The DVD provides basic instructions that are fun and easy to follow but the website provides more advanced instructions. We love this guitar package.
