    on the way home from school i found myself using my ipod for air guitar. This gave me an idea:
    make an app that looks like the neck of a guitar, and make it so when you touch a fret a note plays. Thats it. No need to strum, you need your other hand free to flash the devil sign while you headbang. Maube omplement a way to move your view up/down the neck.

    Someone please do this, it would be sool cool!

    hahaha that would be cool, but I dont think I would be swinging my arms holding my iPod in my hand. There's a piano I-app that pretty much does what u described execpt its not a guitar neck. Its just a little less hardcore

    i just thought of another use for this

    I, along with many others, play guitar. Its gpod to practice alot, but you cant do that on the road. With this, you can practice, and jam to your tunes on the road!

    And if this ever comes out, ive got an idea for an ipod case with a curved back so it feels more like a guotar - look out on instructables

    This is just speculation, but for those who wished to strum, would it be possible to use the Home button? Perhaps something could be implemented to recognize different chords and pluck the correct strings.

    Great idea, I'd love to see this working!

    Ive heard of a air guitar "game" where it tracks how far your hands are from each other and playes notes that sound good whith each other corresponding to how far your hands are from each other. If someone could contact the maker of this code you could somhow use it in the app if someone is going to make it.
