Virtual Guitar 7

Author Comments

This is the 7 String Virtual Guitar version of the Virtual Guitar from Virtualguitar.net that allows you to click around on the guitar fretboard to hear/learn the notes. Sample scales are provided. Simultaneous sounds are achieved by clicking and dragging on the notes (good for chords sounds) Stop all sounds with spacebar or by clicking the whitespace under the guitar. Before any one asks....No, the guitar is not upside down.....it is as if you were holding it and looking down at it or laying flat in your lap! In other words this is how you would be looking at it from that view ie going from a holding position to laying it in your lap or....cocking your head around as you were holding it in order to get a better view. I hope someone out there likes it:)

Cool Concept

I think this is a good concept, and its nice to see some love for the 7 string! This is an excellent tool providing the ability to view all the boxes and scale shapes there are as well as exploring the different modes and chords. Although it is a bit jumbled, Im definitely gonna pick up my guitar and play around with this.

not bad I guess

Needs a little extra fine tuning

I thought this was pretty good. It needs a lot of work though. The setting used for the guitar wasn't bad... It would be neat if there was an effects dial which had delay, distortion add, bass boost, etc. Also, in this game, there is no way to actually strum more than one note at once. You can only pick one note and then another while the other notes just sustain themselves. Where the pickup is on the guitar image, you should make it that if you click and hold the mouse, and strum over the strings, it will play the notes covered by the little black dots. Then you could actually play chords. That would be pretty cool. Also, for the keyboard thing, you could make it so that you drag the box over a certain area of notes, and then you can press keys on the keyboard which make those notes sound. For example, if the box was at the low end of the guitar, you could make it that keyboard "Z" plays a low C. A keyboard "X" would play the next string up, a keyboard "c" would play the next a "v" would play the next a "b" would play the next, and a "b" would play the top string. In order to move up the frets, you would simply shift those six keyboard buttons up one. A "z" would become an "a" and a "x" would become an "s" and so on and so forth. This works pretty well with the program "Fruityloops studio". It's not exactly like this, but it works well. Other than that, I think the sound quality leaves a little to be desired. If possible, it might be ideal to plug a real guitar into your computer mic plug using a 1/4 inch to 1/8 inch plug adaptor. It might sound a little more authentic and a little less digital. Other than that, good game!
