Fret Zealot is an app and connected LED kit that attaches to any guitar to help people learn songs

Fret Zealot is a state-of-the-art LED product that attaches to the fretboard of any acoustic or electric guitar and lights up the associated frets to teach you new music. The device wirelessly connects to Fret's app on your phone, where you can choose songs to play, slow down the tempo to learn at your desired pace and even select different light-show features to bedazzle your riffs.

This device retails for $199 and is marketed towards anyone looking for some extra help with their attempts to emulate the likes of Jimi Hendrix, including beginner information concerning notes, chords and scales as well as more advanced challenges for those with experience. While only time will tell whether the masses will consider self-learning products like this one a substitute for real teachers, perhaps Fret Zealot will at least help solve the conundrum that virtuoso guitarist Andrés Segovia Hera put so concisely: “The guitar is the easiest instrument to play, and the hardest to play well.”
