The hard truth is that it’s never that easy for beginners, but FretX tackles the problem of which fingers go where in an ingenious way – a thin sleeve, wrapped around the guitar neck, which has LEDs that neatly light your way. Again, it works in conjunction with a smartphone app and allows you to master up to 20 chords in an hour. Beat that, Bert!
