Chord Buddy as seen on Shark Tank is American made

The guitar can be a tough instrument to learn but so many people want to play it.  If you find yourself in this position you should give the American made "Chord Buddy" a try.  Chord Buddy is a unique tool that helps people learn the guitar by simply pressing a button.  The Chord Buddy is attached to the guitar over the strings and instead of fighting the pain of the fingers on strings, you simply press a button.  As you become more comfortable with the guitar you can slowly remove buttons thereby exposing the strings and playing in a traditional method.

Travis Perry, the inventor of Chord Buddy appeared on Shark Tank and wowed the panel.  He received 4 good offers, and ended up taking a deal with Robert Herjavec who wants to be a rock star but had a tough time learning guitar before meeting Travis.

As is typical, Kevin O'Leary argued on behalf of Chinese manufacturing (he's certainly not wonderful).  Mark Cuban argued on behalf of social responsibility and the virtues of American made.  Travis wasn't about to sell out, he's only interested in producing his chord buddy in America.  They currently employ 15 people in the lower Alabama area which Travis affectionately refers to as "LA."

If you are trying to learn the guitar, the Chord Buddy is a must have... and it's made in the USA!  You can purchase the "Chord Buddy" on Amazon here.
