An arduino-driven campfire guitar, with no strings attached, 2020-01-03T16:00:00+01:00

When i tried to learn the guitar, I always had the problem of too many fingers for too few strings. So I planned to get rid of them (strings, not fingers!). The result is a perfectly playable instrument, that is technically an arpeggiator, that sounds like a guitar.

You can choose from up to 11 strumming or picking patterns per song with your right hand, and up to 9 chords per song with your left hand, each one with only a single finger.

It features:

  • an OLED Display that shows you the actual settings you chose for a song
  • knobs for speed, volume and "raking"
  • an SD-Card reader for your song library
  • an USB-Port for programming and power supply
  • a separate power jack
  • a compartement for a 9V battery (for usage in the woods by the fireside)
