You’ll sound good right from the start and you can play songs the first day. The Strumstick feels good to play, you’ll pick it up again and again. We designed the Strumstick for people who don't play any music, and are sure they can't play any music. There are no wrong notes; there are just the notes of a simple scale. Since there are no wrong notes, there are no mistakes; you can have fun making sounds without worrying about "getting it right". When you begin, you fret the 1st string with one finger, and strum all three strings with a pick. Anywhere you fret the 1st string sounds good, and the other two strings make a background chord automatically! The G (Standard) Strumstick is $169, is make of Padouk, Spruce, and Maple, is about 29" long, 4" wide, and weighs about 11 oz.
The Strumstick is perfect for children: It’s fun, easy, rugged, and kids can make music with it right from the start. The Strumstick opens the musical door. Ages 3-5, some adult supervision and guidance recommended. Ages 6-96 a child-like spirit is useful but not mandatory. About half of our customers are new to music. We get lots of comments about how easy it is, and how much fun people are having. Full instructions and songs are included, and an instruction CD. We also provide instructions and songs online at this site, in the Instructions Area.
