    God I hate these “gizmos”! Music is a LIFE LONG pursuit that requires practice and discipline. Learning music NEVER ends! Hearing him go on about hard strings on soft fingers… guess what… they’re called callouses! You develop them from PRACTICE! “Chords are difficult to form”… No… you PRACTICE so that eventually your hand develops the proper shapes needed for the chords! I’m not even going to go on about learning music theory and notes. Music is NOT a shortcut! By the time you learn this crap, you probably could of learnt the right way!
