“It’s Lego, and it’s playing guitar :)”

I’m not sure there’s much I can add to the quote in the title, because what more do you need!

Youtube user fastythefastcat built a guitar playing robot using a basic Lego Mindstorms kit and it’s a great addition to the mechanical music files. The top comment on the video gives a little more background.

Hi everyone, thanks for the kind words. However, I don’t have any building instructions for this. I built this bot to fit this particular guitar and to play this particular song and any variation on that would change the design significantly – the fretting part has been designed to play those 4 chords in that order, so different chords in a different order would need a different design etc. I’ve tried to do a few close ups of all the main working parts so you could incorporate those ideas into your own variations. Hopefully I’ve given you some ideas though!
