    This is awesome YAMAHA launched learning guitar for beginners.

    If you are thinking of learning to play guitar, you might want to take a serious look at the EZ-AG guitar from Yamaha. Now anyone, of any age, can learn chords and strumming by following lights. Features include a selection of built-in songs and riffs for you to play along with and you can download more songs from your computer into the guitar. In addition to 9 realistic guitar sounds, there are 8 bass guitar sounds, banjo, shamisen and grand piano. It comes with a built-in speaker and headphone jack and can be connected to an external amplifier (optional). An LED gives visual feedback and there are volume, tempo, balance and capo controls. These cutting edge features help overcome many of the objections of beginner guitar players:

    Crap, such stuff always makes you handicapped IMO.

    The only real way to learn swimming is to jump into a swimming pool, the same goes for learning guitars na dother musical instruments.

    Futuristic self-teaching guitar with Guide Lights means no sore fingers, no tuning required and no broken strings


    No strings!?
    Then why do you call it a guitar?

    i have played on this guitar a lot...its not crap, its a great way to learn chords, excellent for beginners, the tones on it are really good.
    i played some tommy emmanuel acoustic on it and it sounded really good
    and btw you have to pluck the strings to hear the buttons you press.
    ...go and give it a try people

    ^ Picking strings (right hand technique) is just one part of guitar playing.

    The other aspect (and in a way most important) is the left hand/finger control, and how you use it to press/bend/hammer/pull/tap/... strings.

    Oh and the most basic thing to master while playing a chord is to sound clean, with no clicks and buzz and dead strings.

    If there are no strings, how will you learn that?

    a stringed instrument usually having six strings is GUITAR...There cannot be any alternative for that... EZ-AG guitar sounds like a CRAP to me.....

    yes its expensive, around 9k i think... it definitely cannot and will not replace the conventional guitar, but its something fun and easy to play on.

    It's a good toy for a techy geek.

    But seriously, looking at that thing and not expressing disgust would be nearly a death experience. So ..

    It'll encourage more fickle minds to pick up the instruments and learn the same old songs. Only this will make them lose interest a little later as compared to others, and with a marginally larger "repertoire". Ah well, if marketed well it's going to be popular for a while.

    As a side note, I see ppl using the term Gay/Ghey/... as somethign to describe disgust or revulsion.

    haha, I'd suck at playing the guitar even more than I do now had I used that to "learn"

    Haha, probably.

    Even though I use the term gay pretty often, but then that is used to describe ppl who really look gay - LOL Like Steve Vai, Nikki Six etc ...
