A friend sent me this you-tube link for a mechanical bass (I play bass also)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=5UYMnzXQEtw

and the design paper behind it featuring Arduino based hardware.

Pretty neat!

Very cool.  You should hook him up with this guy (Arduino-based percussion) and start a real band

That's totally awesome.  smiley-cool

Accordion would be a challenge. I think you should stick with the bagpipes.

Bagpipes would be cool!  Have to adapt the drones and the melody pipe (whatever the one with finger holes is called) so they could  be changed in length for tuning, or to change key.  Maybe screw in & out.

That would be the chanter. Multiple servos actuating 'finger' pads ... could work.  smiley-eek
