Hi all, I have been working on a guitar project for my brother-in-law who is currently learning how to play the electric guitar. I wanted to build him something that would help him learn but is also really cool at the same time so without any doubt it had to have some cool electric circuitry inside it which had to include an Arduino.
So basically what the guitar has is a small stepper motor which is pulling belt connected to a small frame housing the guitar pickup. The motor is controlled by the X axis of a small Arduino joystick module. When the pickup gets to the optimal location of the guitar such as the neck position or the bridge position it lights two LED’s. The whole point of having it move is that he can experience the sound of both positions as well as any position he wanted along the way creating different types of sounds.
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.
