EZ-AG with a guy who really can't play guitar

We found the new prototype for the EZ-AG lurking on an inside facing wall of the Yamaha stand as were intrigued. The EZ-AG is designed to get kids into the idea of playing guitar buy teaching them chord shapes and strumming. It does this by lighting up the frets and strings in chord shapes for you to emulate without hurting your precious young fingers. I know this may not sound terribly exciting to the hardened synthesist at first glance, but the EZ-AG has a MIDI out and transmits both note and velocity, which may make it an interesting proposition for controlling your MIDI gear. If strings happen to be your thing - you'll be able to input chords the way you know how and bass lines from the fret board. The EZ-AG also comes with a variety of built in preset sounds and patterns if you fancy a singalong. Shipping sometime in October 03 the EZ-AG will probably hit the streets at around $199
