I doubt it, because thats to strengthen your fingers, not your thumb.

I may be completely wrong though...


hmm there's an exercise for the thumb it says on their site:
KEY PINCH Place the hook of the ergonomic palm bar on the inside of the bent index finger. With the tip of the thumb slightly bent, flex the thumb on the first button. Strengthens thumb and index finger for greater stability and co-ordination. (For increased resistance, flex the thumb tip on two buttons at the same time.)



but I just want to know if it really works.. I mean they could just say that.. you know :p

I have one and it is crap.

Practising hard (well not until your fingers hurt) is a much better way.

Practicing is for noobs.

I used to get that, it goes with time. Just keep practicing.

You're just too tense in your thumb, man. Play relaxed instead

Are you using 'classic' or 'rock' grip when you play?

My guitar teacher has one.

He says that he always take it with him when he goes on vacation without a guitar to keep his fingers going.

hmm well if I'm using normal triad chords(doesn't hurt this way) I use the rock grip, but when I use power/barre(it hurts when I chord like this) I use the classic, it's hard to power chord using the rock grip, I can't mute the others strings properly with this rock grip.
