This is my first ever hack so I just want to make something that sounds fun to me. I really like the physics and mechanism of digital audio so I decided to learn more about it in this BrickHack

What it does

It mimics the sounds of an particular musical instrument, in this case, guitar.

How I built it

I followed the instruction and many other videos. Instruction can be found here:

Challenges I ran into

I don't know anything about Java before, so the biggest problem for me is figuring out how the code will work. In addition, the mechanism of digital audio (using Karplus-Strong algorithm) is hard for me at first.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

In the end, I make it works! Moreover, I have met and talked to amazing people and eat good food here at Brickhack!

What I learned

I learned Java from scratch and digital audio theory!

What's next for Guitar Hero

I will advance this project by modifying the algorithm to make it replicate other instruments such as harp, drum, piano. Also, I want it can play the whole song from users input (right now it just can play when user hits a key)
