In another hands-on experience, we engineered a specially designed Gibson guitar and created a coup de grace virtual visit with B.B. himself. Visitors step into the studio, learn a bit about the 8 bar blues, and begin to effortlessly play the special guitar.
Visitors of different ages, skills and talent get a virtual, step-by-step, guitar lesson from B. B. King. At any skill level, they are able to learn some of the basics that make his style so unique.
We modified the Gibson guitars with capacitive touch sensors and embedded LED systems in their fretboards, so as the visitor plays guitar, they get immediate feedback, and the results are displayed as notes and riffs on the facing monitor. As they play they are coached and encouraged by B.B. on the fundamentals of playing the blues.
