Playing guitar helps you play Guitar Fretter but it's not required!

Guitar Fretter is an action puzzle game and playful practice tool for guitarists of all kinds.

Mysterious creatures show up ready to take your energy if you miss a match.

Match the notes, score health and points. Find note patterns and hints. Along the way learn patterns of notes on the guitar fretboard.

Crunchy the guitar is an old friend of Pick's family now helping Pick learn to be a confident musician.

Mysterious portal creatures arrive from an unknown place and a curious agenda. They cause trouble and challenges. And maybe there's more to them.
