What I use for playing was MI Guitar which looks like a guitar at first glance.
Authentic sounds are coming out from a guitar like a toy, and children are also curious.
The original guitar is stringed on the neck, and by holding down a specific string with your finger, you can play sounds such as "C code (Doremi's do)" and "D code (Doremi's le)" I will. MI Guitar, an electronic musical instrument, has six strings of buttons for each fret instead of a string on the neck. Since the performance method only pushes these buttons, it is a mechanism which even a novice guitar can play.
You do not need to hold down multiple places like the original guitar, just stroke while holding down one of the six buttons. With just this, you can play a tone that sounds like a real guitar.
The tone changes with the press button. The codes that can be played are major, minor, powercode, suspended, major seventh, minor, seventh, dominant seventh, all with a single button.
A dedicated playing app will be offered, so you can use smartphones, tablets, PC etc like a musical score. It is also possible to play alone without a dedicated application.
The tone actually playing is almost as good as an electric guitar. Even if you say just press the button, there are strings to stroke, so there is no 'sense of toy' like the controller of the guitar game. If you play the string slowly, it will ring "Porro Ron", or if you strum at it as it is, "Jahn" will sound, you can sharpen the tone.
The man who played was excited with "It sounds like a real tone!"
A woman who said in the movie "The guitar's performance is painful and it is difficult to hold down the string," said the woman, "It was a lot of fun! It's a really happy feeling that you can play the guitar instantly without practicing" Pattern of happiness.
