FretDeck Could Be The Answer   Let's face it, learning the guitar can be hard and that is where FretDeck comes in. It is a very simple concept, but like most of the best ideas; they are simple. In this podcast we talk to Justin Comstock about how came up with the idea of FretDeck. Further to this, we discuss his career as a player and how he managed to get through the maze of Kickstarter to see his dream idea become a reality.

Hi! My name is Justin Comstock. I am the owner of Comstock Guitar Studio and the creator of the FretDeck. I have been playing the guitar since I was 11 years old. I started teaching the guitar during high school and have over 14 years of experience in teaching guitar. During high school I took music theory AP and continued learning more after graduating. Music has always been my passion and I enjoy helping others learn. I enjoy hearing my students write their own music and seeing what they can accomplish on the guitar. I would like to tell you why I created this fantastic product for guitar players. One evening while I was watching TV, I tuned into a Stevie Ray Vaughn concert that I have seen many times prior. As I watched this amazing guitarist play across the fretboard, I realized that he was playing pentatonic scales on the entire guitar. I thought if only other guitar players could understand the fretboard like Stevie Ray Vaughn. My goal is to help guitar players master the entire fret board in every single key so they feel more comfortable playing the guitar. So, I created the FretDeck! You can find out more about FretDeck and purchasing it by clicking FretDeck. On Justins blog he has a series of great articles for guitarists. The FretDeck pitch on the Kickstarter website.

The Most Amazing New Amplification Product In Years! Chris Prendergast is the inventor of a new portable guitar amplifier that attaches onto the vast majority of electric guitars. Working with your smartphone it's a guitarists dream. Funded via an Indiegogo campaign, it's funding from guitarists around the world has been simply overwhelming. In this podcast GMI talks to Chris about the idea of JamStack, it's development and his hopes for the future.     Podcast Ep 8 – Table Of Contents 0.50 The inspiration for JamStack. 3.28 Evolution of the initial idea and Indiegogo. 5.30 Integrating with mobile phones and battery life. 7.45 Creating the connection between apps, mobile and amp. 9.34 Strap button included! 10.12 The biggest challenges faced. 11.00 Success with Indiegogo and unit pricing. 13.30 Getting onto Canada's "Dragons Den". 16.21 Speaker technology and it's use in JamStack. 17.45 It ain't heavy. 18.32 Fitting the JamStack to your guitar. 20.31 Plans for the future. 21.32 Release date coming soon! 23.36 For use in education establishments 26.40 Patents pending... 27.42 The long term goals and vision More About JamStack JamStack Explained The JamStack is the world's first attachable guitar amplifier and the first to integrate seamlessly with a smart phone for incredible effects, shockingly good tone, and total portability. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xJZAC7F6PM Electric guitars can be a pain to set up. All the required equipment like cables, pedals, power outlets and amplifiers take up space and limit where and when you can play. The JamStack solves that problem, letting guitarists and bassists play wherever, whenever they choose. Easy Set-up: JamStack’s lightweight, portable amplifier connects to the base of an electric guitar (or electric bass) in seconds. Weighing under 2lbs. (900 grams), the amp fits on the strap button at the bottom of most guitars using a spring load system and soft mount to protect from scratches. Adjust the smartphone mount and connect two short cords to the phone and guitar’s output and you are ready to jam! How Long Does A Charge Last For? The JamStack runs 8-hours on a single charge and works with iOS, Windows, Android, and iPhone Touch. Its 10-watt speaker is designed to sound great at high AND low volume. It’s not distorted like a mini-amp, so guitarists can sound as good practicing in the middle of the night at low volume as they would jamming alongside other instruments on the street. Since it is so small and light, the JamStack fits in a guitar case making it perfect for road trips, parties and jamming in the park. Using Effects Layer Effects: Pair the JamStack with apps like AmpliTube and AmpKit to add layered effects like drum beats without wasting time on levels. Back tracks won’t drop out like regular amps! And since the phone is right on the guitar body, guitarists can set up loops on the fly, perform sequined samples, or record and share music effortlessly. JamStack helps recreate virtually any guitar sound without the need for a lot of computer equipment. It’s great for new guitar players too! Adjust the phone to can hear the lesson and follow along on the screen. It even works as a great tuner! Plus, JamStack can be paired with Bluetooth to double as an ultra- premium Bluetooth speaker for sharing tunes wirelessly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z_okdy9wVn8 When Will JamStack Be Ready What’s Next: JamStack will take pre-orders on a new Indiegogo campaign starting May 2nd and will appear on Canadian TV’s Dragons’ Den in Fall 2017. A winter 2016 Kickstarter campaign raised more than 325% of its goal to fund the tooling and first manufacturing run in Summer 2017.

Getting used to TAB (tablature) means they don't see the point in learning to read.
