You always meet at least twice in life. This is also the case with The Magnet, the smartphone camera holder that you can quickly and easily clip onto the guitar neck. The old-fashioned blog readers might still have the project from 2014 in mind, which unfortunately failed to achieve its funding goal at that time. Meanwhile the second campaign has been successfully completed and the production is right on schedule according to the makers.
But what is The Magnet anyway and what do you need it for?
The way to speed
If you want to be fast you have to start slowly. Nevertheless you will get into situations from time to time, where problems and uncleanliness occur after a certain playing tempo on the guitar. The analysis of this, especially if you don’t have a good teacher at hand, is not easy for most people. How nice it would be if you could simply record your own playing with a camera.
Since nowadays everybody should own a smartphone, the camera itself is no problem anymore. Just finding the right camera position is complex. Whoever has ever tried to put a smartphone on a tripod and then film the action of the plectrum hand knows that this rarely produces usable results. Not to mention the effort involved.
