You'll sound good right from the start and you can play songs the first day. The Strumstick feels good to play, you'll pick it up again and again. We designed the Strumstick for people who don't play any music, and are sure they can't play any music. There are no wrong notes; there are just the notes of a simple scale. Since there are no wrong notes, there are no mistakes; you can have fun making sounds without worrying about "getting it right".
The D Strumstick plays the same way as the G, but is pitched lower. The D is more resonant and deeper sounding, and is often the first choice of guitar players. It is 33 inches long, 5 wide, and 1 deep. The woods are Padouk for the neck and body, Spruce for the soundboard, and Maple for the back.
The tuning is D A D. The low D is the same note as a guitar 4th string. It can also be tuned down as low as A (an octave below the Standard Strumstick) or up as high as F. Useable keys are A, A#, B, C, C#, D, D#, E, and F . The frets are placed to give a diatonic scale, with an additional flatted seventh. Pitch range is 2 1/2 octaves. The D Strumstick comes with a Free instruction book and Instruction CD. Cases available (see Accessories). The D Strumstick comes with the inlay Rosette at no additional cost.

This shopping and buying experience was very positive. The instrument is beautiful. My son ended up not being home for his birthday so he's not yet received this gift. I expect that he will be really surprised at such a unique gift.
