It’s all too common to hear people say they wish they’d learned an instrument. Even when someone commits to learning guitar, the vast majority don’t stick with it. But we live in the digital age, and there are new ways to keep you engaged and learning.

Take for example the Jamstik+ Smart Guitar. It’s one part super-portable digital guitar, with real frets and strings and a digital output. On the other hand, it’s also an app-based learning system, meaning the tools and the knowledge you need to progress with the guitar can travel with you. Onscreen cues walk you through essential chords and scales. The jamTutor app turns learning into an interactive and entertaining process involving video lessons and games. Sensors on the Jamstik+ offer real-time, onscreen feedback that encourages you to press ahead when you hit a wall. Additionally, and maybe best of all, you never have to tune the thing.
