I don't trust those gripmasters much, it's better to spend your time with guitar then with that mechanical device.
Maybe 5 minutes daily is enouhg!

I have a Gripmaster.
Helps build strength in your hand/fingers, so you have less problems playing for longer periods.
Works fine for me at least smile.gif

You realise with all these guitarists using prohands will have such strong hands, then could probably kill a man, or possibly even a Bear with there bear hands laugh.gif laugh.gif

As some other people I would advice a shredneck instead of the gripmaster. But in truth when You don't have a guitar and want to improve Your guitar playing, there is nothing better than learning theory... But it needs much more thinking, and I know how hard thinking is on a 16 hour shift, so a shredneck could do a trick:P

I agree with Emir on this one. Stick to practicing guitar and everything will build naturally from time to time!

I think that, whilst I'm at work I can't really use a guitar or shred neck, but I can have this thing in one of my hands, so I use it. It can't make me any worse, so why not? I still practice hours every day, but if there is something that even gives me a small edge that I can do at a time when I physically can't be playing a guitar and have my mind occupied so can't be thinking about guitar or theory, then I'll at least try it.

Practicing on the guitar for at least a few minutes is definitely the best way to strengthen fingers.
But I have one of these gripmasters, I use it at work most of the day. I bought some caps that snap right on to each individual finger grip that has raised grooves to simulate guitar strings. They hurt a bit at first, but now I'm used to them and they help maintain calluses on the finger tips. I never use it at home when I actually have my guitars around, but when I'm at work, or if I have to go on a boring shopping trip with my girl, I take it along and just squeeze away lol.
