Multitasking: Guitar Mod Allows You To Type By Playing

April 5, 2013


This is the Email Guitar, a guitar modded by David Neevel (of OREO creme separating fame) that allows you to create keyboard letter input by playing different musical notes on a guitar. *playing 'Freebird'* Sqpala;a la dkwl e la fllaldka wll a lalca. COOL!

WK recently allowed me some time to tackle a problem that plagues workers everywhere whether they are working in advertising or some other job that involves a lot of email typing. I'm talking about the problem of not being able to devote enough time practicing shredding the guitar. The solution of hooking a guitar up so that you could use it like a computer keyboard had been in my head for a few years and it was a real joy to get to follow through on it.

I actually just played some Black Sabbath backwards and it typed out some sort of satanic incantation. Or maybe it's just a recipe for pickled demon peen -- it's hard to say. Either way, I'm not pentagramming the kitchen floor with goat's blood to find out, I'll tell you that.

Hit the jump for a video of the shredding in action. If you're interested follow the link back to David's blog where he proves the code he used and more info.

Thanks to David himself, who actually sent the tip via Email Guitar and I will cherish it in my heart for all eternity.
