Using The Magnet

Thanks so much for picking up a Magnet! We spent years designing and using the Magnet in our interviews and lessons, and we’re thrilled to bring this powerful tool to musicians everywhere.

Grab your guitar, mandolin, bass, bouzouki, oud, or just about any other plucked instrument, and fire up your smartphone. You’re just a few steps away from getting a perfect, close-up look at your picking technique.

If you have a question that you don’t see answered here, just send us a note at [email protected].
