A project known as the gTar is creating a buzz surrounding its implementation of traditional musical learning with the use of Apple’s iPhone.

Users embed an iPhone into the guitar’s dock, and with the help of an accompanying app, the neck of the guitar will light up with interactive LED’s along the fretboard.

The illuminated lights represent the sequence of notes required to play a particular song of choice, and the app features three different difficulty levels to suit the user’s knowledge and skill.

The app also features a wide range of existing tracks, allowing players to select songs that they are more familiar with.

The instrument aims to simplify the steep learning curve of learning guitar, and is using a Kickstarter page to promote the project.  The retail price for the guitar is $450 (R3,714.50*).
