Guitar Finger exerciser

Hi,

I'm new to the Arduino system, but played around with it a few years ago for a quadcopter.

I wonder if anyone can help me with an idea I have to help me teach some youngsters guitar. One of the things that they find is the speed of their finger independence isn't good.

What I was thinking, was something along the lines of the "Simon" game, where a sequence would be shown on 4 leds and then the user would press the same corresponding switches back. If they got it correct it would move onto another sequence and speed up, if they got it wrong it would repeat the same sequence.

It would be good if the "standard" sequence would be 1,2,3,4 - 4,3,2,1 repeated, but speeding up each time they were successful. A "random" button or switch would move it into the random "simon" style sequences.

Many thanks for any help.

That sounds easy enough. Here is something to get you started. http://playground.arduino.cc/Main/SimpleSimonSays

Brilliant :slight_smile: Many thanks for the quick reply. Time to start playing around.
