Know Your Guitar and Play It Well

It is critical to understand your guitar, to know the instrument’s body, and how it works from the inside out. It helps you become a better player and helps you use the instrument correctly. It is just as important to practice efficiently and with proper technique.

For these reasons, and because we want you to be the rock star you know you can be, we compiled our first free downloadable Beginner’s Guide which highlights some examples of tools and resources from our free app and other more general resources.

Fret Zealot App includes the following all for free:

  • Video Tutorials
  • Scales (ALL of them)
  • Chords (ALL of them)
  • Songs (tens of thousands)
  • A tuner and varying accompaniment tunings (57 different ones!)

This Beginner’s Guide includes the following:

  • An overview of the guitar body, from headstock to strap.
  • Proper Technique – Learn how to properly hold the guitar, which affects fretting, dexterity, accuracy, and all styles of playing.
  • How to Tune Your Guitar.
    Look, you have to tune your guitar, and you have to tune it accurately every time you play so you can develop an accurate ear for the pitch and scales. Use the free tuner in the Fret Zealot app and the app will immediately adjust the included tutorials, scales, and chord progression to the tuning you choose.
  • Practical Practice Tips to get started. (Hint: Play what you actually like.)

Remember, you can play, and you can love practicing the guitar with the Fret Zealot. Set reasonable practice goals, and you will be surprised at how quickly you learn.

The Critics Take on the Most Lit Guitar Learning Accessory

Learning Guitar

“I have a guitar, but I never really learned to play it…”


How many times have you heard that? Maybe you have said it.

OR you see the guy hanging out in the corner of the party, nobody sees him, but you can hear him strumming one guitar chord on 4 rusty strings, singin’ an off key Stairway to Heaven.

You certainly don’t have to be that guy, or gal (but, let’s face it, usually that party character is a dude.)

We love music. We love to rock out. And, we know you can, too. That is why we made Fret Zealot in the first place.


A lot of rockstar reviewers are talking about Fret Zealot… because it works! It is the first application that actually teaches you to play guitar by showing you what you need to do on the guitar fretboard. The free app includes a library of over 35,000 songs to play, thousands of scales, and chords to practice and jam out.

But don’t take our word for it. Techies, bloggers, rockers, and critics are giving it their own thumbs up. Check out some of these videos and reviews.

See it ALL!

As you can see and learn from Gearmandude, you can learn at your own pace, practice, and repeat as often as you need. There are 3 different speeds to choose as you learn.
