This was a gift for my husband. I thought he could take it with him to kill time in the car or use to chill and easily practice playing guitar in bed or wherever he is. - Nope

I also thought worst case scenario my 12 yr old son could practice his cords on it without having to bring his guitar around with him. - Nope

You can't do anything with it because there is no way to strum it. There are no strings to strum! Just a plastic molded plate that looks like strings. Even if if you try strumming the neck (the portion that does have strings), it makes no sound either, so you don't really know if you are making the cord correctly if it's for practice purposes.

The videos on YouTube make it seem like people are really enjoying jamming on it and as though the onlookers are actually enjoying as well - but you would get just as much pleasure out of picking up a broom to pretend to jam on.

I got more musical practice and enjoyment out of those card sized mini electric pianos back in the 90's that you could get at the 99Cent store.

Comments about UncommonGoods PocketStrings:

Thought this would be a great gift for my husband. He is learning to play guitar, and I thought this would be handy to break out and practice chord changes. He didn't like it - said it didn't make sense without giving you sound to hear if you are playing the chords correctly. I am planning on returning the item.

          Uncommon goods itself made the purchase easy. Deliver was on time just as it said it would be. Just don't buy this product.

                Comments about UncommonGoods PocketStrings:

                In short, a piece of useless junk. I nearly cut my self on the fret ends, no point in trying to tune it, you can't and even if you could SO WHAT ?
                They seem to leave out the part about NOT BEING ABLE TO STRUM THE THING !! In the, "Happy videos" you see someone "playing" it, while others look on, entertained. By what, there's NO SOUND ! Just a piece of plastic with 6 raised lines, that you can pretend to strum>
                And most importantly, IF THERE IS NO SOUND, OR WAY TO PLAY THE STRINGS, YOU CANNOT PRACTICE WITH IT !!!!!!! WHAT POSSIBLE GOOD IS FRETTING A STRING, WHEN YOU CAN'T HERE IF YOU'RE DOING IT RIGHT.? YOU COULD BE PLAYING THE CHORD WRONG AND NEVER KNOW IT. SO I ASK YOU,....IS THAT PRACTICING, NOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!
                NOT a practice ,....anything ! And even if you could tune it, the 3rd fret, would in essence be the 12th fret, because it is half way (presumably) between the nut and saddle.

                    Better manufacturing should take care of the multiple sharp fret ends. Don't think I can recommend this model, but let's see if you get one for a ukulele worth owning.

                    I gave this as a gift thinking that it would be perfect for my guitar playing husband. He loved it at first. But when he realized he couldn't actually play it like a mini guitar he quickly lost interest. He's had it for a week and has already been looking at mini guitars, and I've found this in the junk drawer.
