I work long shifts most of the time, with periods of free time now and then that would be great times to practice, but of course I can't bring a guitar to work. I was wondering if there was any such thing, like just the neck of a guitar, that could be used for learning finger positions etc. I'm sure I could probably make something out of an old guitar, but thought I would check first because there might actually be something already.

Your in luck.. There is a device called "Little fretty". Just do a google for it and Im sure it will come up. Otherwise let me know, I saw it in one of my guitar world magazines, and I can hunt it down and get the info for you.

Found the site... Little Fretty Check out all the fun that chick is having with it :roll:

On second thought, what does it really look like shes holding???? :twisted:

LOL..looks like a toy to me ! I wonder how effective it would be. I was looking for something that had actual strings I think.

I bring my guitar to work and practice when I have free time. My boss doesn't look at it any different than read a book or the paper which is allowed. So guess it depends on your boss and company.

I might have been able to take the thing a bit more seriously if it wasn't so, err, stupid.
He is Q-U-I-T-E as a MOUSE I think he meant "quiet"

Having put up the picture of the woman, holding our little fretty friend, they destroy the whole scene (not that there was much to destroy) by adding "You will now always be ready for that important performance or session." Oh, yeah.
"You never know who will be in the audience." I don't think I want to know.

I'm not even going to comment on their idea of "uses" for the thing - you'll just have to read them for yourselves :lol:

I started with nothing - and I've still got most of it left.

There's got to be a way to put batteries in that thing.

"He is a smooth skinned, hard foam material engineered to give a pressure resistance when squeezed..."

Ohh...

Anyway, I think you might want to get a peice of cardboard, stick it under your strings and get a tracing of your fretboard. Cut it out, draw strings on it and label the notes.

I'm going to have a heart attack I've been laughing so hard!

"Keep him back stage to stay loose."
"Pets love to get rubbed by him."
"Keep him in your desk at work to stay limber during breaks."

Little Fretty... Ribbed for her pleasure!

Seems you miss building the coordination of using both hands.

Bwahahah OMG no comment on "Little Fretty"

Maybe your best bet would be to get an old neck and rig up some strings on it to practice? I've been considering a travel size guitar to take to work.

Yeah that's what I was kinda thinking I would end up doing.
