That chord buddy could be a great tool for those who have some fingers or hand disability but still want to play guitar. But if you’re a beginner trying to shortcut the long and painful guitar learning process – yeah I could’ve said lazy person instead – well, you’re probably going to be a little disappointed.
Why Bother Learning Chord Shapes ? Just Use Chord Buddy !

Sooooo useless… Learn the right way to play or keep playing guitar hero…
Better to persevere with the funny finger shapes, IMHO…
…but a useful aid for differently-abled people that want to play.
Your second point is right 🙂
If you were that lazy, surely you’d just use open tuning and a slide…
FINALLY! Captain Hook can rock out to some “Kum Ba Yah” around the campfire.
LOL. I agree you don’t learn to play the guitar properly until you can play without the ChordBuddy. It is more like “training wheels” for the guitar. Without training wheels most kids would stop riding a bike after a good fall or two. The ChordBuddy is similar in that it helps to take the pain and frustration out of the learning experience. Cheers!
