  4. he seriously needs to work on the tuning of the thing. It really seems to be kinda useless...

    Yeah, what is the purpose of this thing? Why would you buy that over a guitar or keyboard?

    Keytars rule!!!

  7. it looks like it can only play chords though. how would i be able to play my yngwie licks with that?

    i say, you might as well play guitar, it would be just as easy, or keyboard!

    Wow, you learn more during a two hour lesson with one of those than you do with a regular guitar for over a year! This is an incredible product, not to mention the wide range of rich tones you can coax outta that sucker!

    Where do I sign?

    I will say that it is an interesting idea, and will probably sell quite a few units, but not enough to keep it going. You ever notice how people always come back to the standard designs mostly?

    It seems like a similar approach as the Strum Stick took. I'd rather have the roland though. That's all
  12. I must say it's cool, but it's not very good looking from an aesthetic point of view. They could have come up with a better design than a big triangle. Still, it looks like a cool little thing for a keyboardist to play around on.

    Well they do come with different body styles

    looks like a weird Steinberger to me.
  14. HAHAHA, I was almost in a band with a guy that played an old keytar! :D

    But the whole thing was a joke:
    Guitarist/singer thought he was playing drums. all he has is like a couple bongo drums or something :eyebrow:

    Singer guy has controlling wife who he obeys, which means everyother sunday we could practice, the other sundays are family days and every one had very different schedules

    One person played the keytar :p
    With the possible exception of me, he was the most knowledgable musicain in the would be band.

    The singer/guitarist was no good :meh:

    If I only lived further north I could be in a talented cover band. All older folks (I'm only 20, so it ain't hard) who sadly were surprised to see a bassist that played an A when they said A :rollno: But I just don't have the time, not that far away :crying:

    I'm done now...Wait

    :p Keytars, they are funny. Kinda cool in a way, but I think they are more funny. Though it would all depend on style of how it is used.
