<p>By popular demand; I will add a video in the coming days.</p><p>Video contents; pressing a string down onto a fret along the neck of the guitar I'll try to play chords. </p><p>Thank you for your interest and your contribution...</p>
<p>Using hot glue makes the strumming mechanism permanent. Might be OK for some. I myself would use Velcro. Same concept, different implementation</p>

<p>Thank you very much :)</p>
<p>Hello MertArduino! Great instructable! May I suggest you change the tuning of the guitar, then you don't have to know how to play chords and can still have the Arduino play while sounding &quot;better&quot;? There are several popular &quot;open tunings&quot; - the most popular is DADGAD, but the G and As may cause some dissonance. Try tuning the guitar to &quot;Open D&quot; (DADF#Ad) and see how it sounds. If you don't have a tuner or don't know how to tune the guitar, you can go here: http://www.gieson.com/Library/projects/utilities/tuner/ and choose the &quot;Open D&quot; tuning from the dropdown list.</p>
<p>Thank you very much for ideas and information. I will try it in the coming days.</p>
<p>Very clever! I may expand on this in the coming weeks, I'll be sure to give credit where credit is due!</p>
<p>Thank for your comments. But I don't understand, what do you say exactly &quot; I'll be sure to give credit where credit is due! &quot;</p>
<p>..that if I expand on your project I will be sure to indicate my inspiration was based on your project</p>
<p>Of course. I'm glad. If there's anything I can help you gladly.I'll be waiting your expand.</p>
<p>yeah, this only &quot;strums&quot; an open chord. Title is very misleading, you really can't &quot;play&quot; anything with this. </p>
<p>I think you made heavy criticism thinking it was misleading. This is just an idea. This improved. I'm not a guitarist. if you wish to contribute an idea in you. But thank you anyway for your comment.</p>
Think about pressing a string down onto a fret along the neck of the guitar. Perhaps something like a pencil eraser mounted at 90 degrees to the end of a servo arm. Rotating the servo would press the eraser down on the string which would press the string onto the fret. It would take 3 or 4 of these units to fret a chord. Many songs can be played with just a E, D and A chord.
<p>Thank you very much for ideas and information. I will try it in the coming days.</p>
<p>Nice start!</p><p>According to the Axis of Awesome you will need 4 chords to play any pop song ;-). So just a little more work and you can play them all!</p><p>Best Wishes.</p>
<p>Thank you very much for your nice comments. Actually, I'm just a programmer. But I'll try to play the guitar. Thanks again.</p>
