Keyboard guitar makes rocking out simple

Just as sharks are genetically designed to never stop swimming and hunting, the modern guitar form is still the perfect shape to allow you to fully exploit your music machismo. But that doesn't mean we can't improve upon the instrument with some tech steroids.

The TabStrummer is a stand-alone programmable MIDI controller that allows you to program any of its 12 buttons with any guitar chord that can be played on a regular guitar, with a total of 300 internal memory song locations. The end result is a pitch perfect, simplified instrument that brings melodic performances a little closer to their mathematical roots in terms of remembering chord progressions. You can see the TabStrummer in action in the video below.
