You can make music with a StrummA Kit within minutes of getting your instrument assembled, and you can't play wrong notes.
To start to play place your finger on fret 1 string 1, and strum all three strings.
Move your finger up and down the frets whilst still strumming, you are making music!
The StrummA range is both creative and fun for all, a serious instrument in its own right but also good as a trainer to move on to other instruments. Standard tuning for the StrummA is D A d but there are alternative ways of tuning.
They can be played fretting a single string, or by forming chords.
The StrummA only plays in one key that is why there are no wrong notes.
The music that you can make is only limited by your imagination.
Many people give up learning to play an instrument do to the frustration of not being able to make music quickly enough, but with the StrummA you can make music straight away. Most people to whom we have demonstrated StrummA we have taught them to play complicated sounding music in under 3 minutes.
