Gone are the days when, in order to be considered legitimate, an instrument had to operate without a charge. Years after Bob Dylan plugged in his electric guitar and hip hop musicians started producing songs on MPCs, electronic instruments are ubiquitous. They are in the music we listen to online and at the live shows we attend with our friends. The MI Guitar is the newest addition to that arsenal.
While the MI is shaped like a classic electric guitar, the similarities end at the fret board. With six strings pulled across the body of the guitar, and a fret board that with buttons all the way up it – is designed to make playing the guitar easier, and more approachable for the enthusiast who many not be able to dedicate a whole lot of time to music. The guitar communicates with a mobile app that displays both the chords and the lyrics to songs so you can easily play along to your favorite tracks. The price for one of these is $300. [Purchase]
