I know muting unwanted string noise is a big factor in becoming a better player. Would using fretwraps while learning lead to building bad habits? Or might it be a good idea as an intermediate player?

Its really nice if your a studio musician who wants unwanted string noise. Thats why I have them I really only "Use" them if im trying to learn some new lead lick and i want to hear how it sounds cleaner to see if its worth working on.

I love mine i think there great. Really helpfull tools. And i seagulls point about bad habits. But there main use is for studio use or if your really big into playing with both hands so you wont have any unwanted string noise.

While learning... no, definitely not.

Just playing... yeah, sure.

The thing about most of the people you see using them is that most of them don't really need them. Having seen guys like Guthrie Govan, Andy James and Fred Brum live... those guys have no need of them, they just like the fail-safe.

Yeah thats how i discoverd them was watching Guthrie and Ola. And I said to myself I dont know what they are but I kind of need to have them! And there actually a neat tool to have. But yes I would deff call it a fail safe. Not for learners as mentioned!

Wait...technically, that would mean no one would ever use them, right??
