I know one thing on the guitar – Pinball Wizard. I’m useless with one, though that didn’t stop me from being in two bands in my youth. I might have been better if I’d had technology to help me instead of a Bert Weedon book – like the Fretlight, the world’s first computer-powered electric teaching guitar.
Fretlight teaches you to play through a series of lights embedded in the guitar. Available in red, pink, black, white and tobacco sunburst (pictured), the learning system includes software for all types of players and levels of ability. Connect to your PC via USB cable, install the software, follow the software generated lights on the guitar and you could be playing and doing the Hank Marvin walk in no time.
You can pick up the Fretlight for around $500.
