Digital electric guitar pushes music forward

A new digital guitar is making noise in the music industry.

A new "digital" electric guitar has been invented with shorter strings than a typical guitar and a bare fretboard.

The You Rock guitar, which looks similar to the guitars used in the hit computer game Rock Band, is a state-of-the-art music instrument.

It has a MIDI guitar controller and recorder "with touch sensitive fingerboard" and a synthesizer.

The instrument is fully compatible with music software like GarageBand, Cubase, Pro Tools, Sonar and Reason.

It has a USB interface which is compatible with PCs and even tablets like the iPad.

It's so state of the art that it can even be folded and put into a bag making it one of the most travel-friendly guitars in the business today.

Digital Journal's Paul Wallace said: "TheYoi Rock guitars look like a lot of fun to me. I was thinking that the Guitar Hero guitars, turned into real instruments, would be worth a try.

"Which is exactly what I'll do. It's about time some truly modern, functional instruments came on the market. These guitars plug in through USB, which is all I need."
