Make Guitar Hero Controller With Strings

Make a Guitar Hero Control with strings using MaKey MaKey. via instructables

Utilizing the MakeyMakey program, we have constructed a guitar out of a scrap wood plank, ten screws, five stripped copper wires, and of course the MakeyMakey creation kit. The guitar acts as an alternate controller to the traditional Guitar Hero guitar, which was played with five different-colored buttons.

We improved the design of this model by stretching the copper wires across the plank so they could be used in place of the buttons, to give the player an experience closer to playing an actual guitar.

There are five strings (which correspond to the five buttons) each labeled A, S, D, F, G. When each wire (string) is touched, it will play the dedicated note in response to the electrical current in our bodies being passed through the strings, to the screws, to the alligator clip and thus to the MakeyMakey board and attached computer.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
