Making a Pitch Follower

I do not know what kind of photocell I need to complete this

It's a photoresistor (referred to as such in the article), sometimes called an LDR (light dependent resistor). Together with the 47K R it forms a voltage divider, which is read by the ADC of the Arduino.

These are commonly made from cadmium sulfide (CdS), and are easy to find on the web--or in old light sensing nightlights or security lamps.
