We all go through that phase where we want to become a rock star, but most of us give up because it’s too hard (and we’re lazy). Fortunately, there’s a new, easy way to learn how to play the guitar: the FRETX Smart Guitar Learning Device.

The FRETX is a smart device that clips onto any electric or acoustic 6-string guitar and lights up to show you exactly where to place your fingers to play a chord. Through its mobile app, the FRETX gives you immediate feedback and teaches you all the basic chords. In less than an hour so you can quickly impress your friends and family with your newfound musical prowess.

The FRETX is also good for guitar teachers because it allows teachers and students to share exercises through the app. And since it’s open-source and connects with 3rd-party apps, the door is always open for future development.

The FRETX Smart Guitar Learning Device normally costs $110, but it’s on sale for over 35 percent off. You can get it for just $69.99, through The Daily Dot Store.
