A musician otherwise, I’m also a trained singer with decades of experience. I sight-read sheet music well enough to jump into something new on the fly. But I’m an absolute beginner when it comes to the guitar. Well, I was until I started learning and practicing with the Fretlight Guitar and software eight weeks ago. I’ve always thought of the guitar as that intimidating, too-beautiful woman--I’d never be able to connect, so I never approached. Could the Fretlight help me learn to play? Yes, but it’s a tumultuous romance.
You know how the song goes: I get by with a little help from my apps. Your apps can help guide you through the levels of a difficult console game, learn to play an instrument, and keep time, just like your human friends would. Well, except for that last part -- especially if you're trying to make it home by curfew. That never works out, so stop trying.
