    it would work like this
    G - E Note (low)
    R - A
    Y - D
    B - G
    O - E (high)
    then adding power chords for each, and if you hold the "select button" it goes to the higher frets
    and you can hammer all single notes.
    and it would just work off of midis converted to oggs.
    would anyone want to help code?

    lol, not to knock you or anything, but it would hardly be a 'guitar emulator', as it would play nothing like a guitar.

    Also, just having the notes of the open strings would be very limited, you would be restricted to playing very basic melodies with those notes, or playing an A D or G power chord or E octave.

    Would that really be worth the programming? You may as well get a real guitar & play that. Leave guitar hero controller for guitar hero (rhythm game in disguise) and guitar for... well, real guitars

    huh? how many songs can you play with only the 6 open strings? maybe the opening of "nothing else matters" but that's about it. im fling this in the "stupid ideas" folder with the shit flavored lollypop.

    5 buttons = 32 possibilities. lrn2binary [​IMG]

    Add the select button to cycle through modes, and the sky's the limit! personally, I'd set it to trigger samples - you could get some good tunes out of it.

    it wouldn't be a 'guitar emulator', it'd be a guitar-shaped awesome noise machine. pretty good fun.

    edit: actually, it looks like someone's already done it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbpZBQ7jXgI
