Online Guitar App

While studying computer graphics at NTU, I created this guitar app along with my colleague Vasu. We used Adobe Flash 3.0 to quickly prototype the strings and the body of the guitar. Then by using keyframe animation and keyboard event triggering, added sounds and a vibration to the strings. You can play it here:

NOTE: Users on iPhone & iPad who are unable to load the flash script, download the free Puffin web browser for iOS. It renders flash scripts painlessly.

Get Adobe Flash player

Instructions for playing:
  • Make sure your audio setting is not muted.
  • Click anywhere on the guitar to get it in focus.
  • Press keyboard keys 1,2,3,4,5,6 to hear music notes.
  • Press & Hold any of the keys for ‘santoor’ effect.
  • Press any combination of keys together(separated by split second) to hear chords

    is supposed to be tuned to E A D G B E?

      No, it is not EADGBE. It’s the D major scale with these notes (top to bottom) D,E,F#,G,A,B.

      Without frets, it is difficult to create music with EADGBE, hence the D major scale.
