Adding third hand to guitar play

Playing a guitar is fun as it is. But if you are a bit more nerdy, then why not adding something weird to it to amaze friends. Youtuber Make It And Fake It have been tinkering with Arduino, servo and couple of chopsticks and put together a crude guitar attachment which can stroke strings with different patterns. The functionality is yet still limited as for different strokes it needs reprogramming with three control buttons. For more functionality additional coding might be needed. The fun demonstration at the end of video proves to be real fun from both – funny and practical side. With a bit of tuning one hand really can be free to play another instrument to make song even better. Servo motor seems to be too loud while … Continue reading

Programmable Synthesized Guitar – The Best Experience to Learn and Plays Acoustic Guitar

Yeah, let’s rock N roll… Wait a minute; I didn’t have any guitar, how can I play the song without a guitar? It’s surely an embarrassment, especially when you found out that we cannot enjoy some great moment due to the lack of guitar! For overcoming the problem, why don’t you create the experience of playing an acoustic guitar electrically? Ok, you might think it’s totally ridiculous to reprogram the acoustic guitar electrically, but it’s not impossible to do it. Believe it or not, you can get it done by using vibration sensors, push buttons and the Karplus-Strong algorithm. Well, here is the basic idea. First of all, you have to remodel an acoustic guitar as closely as possible. Then, it’s time to implement additional functions, which is not available … Continue reading
