If you would like to play the guitar but perhaps at the current time do not have the required skills to hit all the correct guitar chords, you might be interested in a new device that has been launched over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website this week called the RoboTar Guitar Chords Robot.
RoboTar has been designed to rest on the first four frets of a guitar and is basically a robotic guitar chords hand that allows anyone to play guitar simply by strumming, fingerpicking or changing the guitar chords with the use of a foot pedal.
The RoboTar Guitar Chords Robot has been designed by Kevin Krumwiede and has been created for fun or those with disabilities that may not be able to play guitar chords. Watch the promotional video below to learn more about the innovative RoboTar device.
Its creators explains a little more: “ RoboTar was inspired by my father who, after a lifetime passion of playing guitar, lost the ability to play due to a debilitating stroke. I created RoboTar to give my father, and those like him that lost the use of one hand or arm for any reason, the ability to play guitar again.
The most common question we get asked is “Can it slide up the neck”? The answer is, it doesn’t need to. RoboTar can actuate chords in the 2 and a half octaves of notes in those frets and create any chord in any key without the limitation of human fingers.
Music Teachers and new learners can use RoboTar for instant enjoyment as a stepping stone to playing without assistance. Seasoned guitarists and composers can use RoboTar in the same way a piano is used by using RoboTar to drive chords while the player experiments and develops melodies further up the neck in real time.”
So if you think RoboTar Guitar Chords Robot is something your guitar playing could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter crowd funding website now to make a pledge for around $319 and help RoboTar become a reality.
