Shane I have a q and you really did an excellent review. Some one could learn how to use the q chord from just listening to this review. One cartridge you may want is the rhythm cartridge. You get 30 rhythms with each cartridge and there are two of them. Also there are some websites with q music. These peaces of music have the q fingerings for the songs. I do not like the strap for the q because it has soft button holes that can slip off. I wish they made a strap with collars that pop on to the buttons. Maybe a good guitar strap might work.
