    So if it is set to play a major chord, what happens when you want to play a minor chord? What if you want to add a 7th in? If you're going to limit yourself that much, why not just get a guitar and tune it so the open strings make the major chord and then you just have to bar across all the strings on a single fret. Just as useless, and you don't have to pay for a trinket.

    Just another example of the dumbing down of society.

    You too can play songs that sound similar to all your favourite songs!

  7. "It's also a shortcut for people who don't have time to learn guitar." Really? If you don't have time to learn guitar then just don't pick up a guitar, don't try to learn it in some half-ass way! The only thing I can see this thing being useful for is for someone who really wants to play but has a physical issue that would otherwise prevent it.

    It's only a matter of time until the Bass equivalent come out. It'll just be that much easier for the posers.

    I went to a Bad Company show many years ago, and when they played "Shooting Star" the lead singer came out with an open tuned righty-worn-lefty white Strat that he whanged away on during the song. The apex of the heresy was when he lifted the guitar up to his mouth and pretended to play with his teeth while the actual guitarist stood with his back to the audience and played Hendrix-esque licks.

    There's one major point they mentioned, people with physical disabilities could benefit. I am not against a product that allows people with disabilities who can't play the opportunity to be able to actually play something.

    Please don't start throwing things at me but from an engineering point of view, this is quite brilliant. I do like the way it switched from major to minor chords. Also, the younger generations like instant everything. He could sell a lot of these. Just sayin.
  14. Who cares. It's not like it could replace a real player.

    I've just invented this great device that makes it even easier. Its called "iPOD Taped to a Bass and Wired Through Speakers". You just select the song you want to play and hit the button on your iPOD. It plays the song through your speakers while you hold onto the bass. You can even keep a hand free to scratch your ass if you like. It works for pretty much any instrument. Anyone want to donate so my dream can become reality?

    It's quite irrelevent really - you don't have to use instruments today, just get some band in a box software, buy prerecorded packs of the music style you like and cut and paste a hit on your computer. :)

  18. This seems like something the guy from the Goo Goo Dolls would use. I saw them in concert as a feature act, and he just played everything with one finger in open tunings.
