Musical Instrument of 21st century
is a new revolutional type of musical instrument. At first glance, this instrument looks like any classical acoustic guitar, but it is a
purely electronic instrument like a keyboard. It differs from a keyboard and a classical guitar mainly in its playing style. Guitariano
could be considered a combination of both. In contrast to a keyboard, all Guitariano keys are arranged in frets on the neck like on a classical guitar.
All the tones, including polyphony notes and chords sound immediately after pressing the corresponding keys on the neck. Therefore, the Guitariano playing
style is similar to the one-hand guitar playing technique called hammering. To complete the feel of playing a real guitar, there are six easy-to-press
rubber strings spread over the keys on the neck.
The right hand is used for controlling the automatic accompaniment. The automatic accompaniment buttons placed on
the Guitariano body are arranged in a sophisticated pattern called the "quarto-circle chord system." Controlling the accompaniment is very simple and the
chord transposition does not require any eye coordination. That's how a player can fully concentrate on playing with the other hand. With the help of this
accompaniment system you can play alone and sound like a whole band. It makes the Guitariano equally suitable for accompaniment and as a solo instrument.
Another great advantage of the instrument is that it doesn't require any knowledge of piano chords; it is suitable
for music beginners as well as for advanced guitarists. Guitariano is an ideal instrument for amateur and professional guitarists, solo singers,
With even a minimal knowledge of guitar playing technique, following only a few hours of training the Guitariano
enables a player to create effective and amazingly good music.
Two different models of Guitariano DMV100 are being produced: DMV100 and DMV100P. Detailed description of both
types is in the “Instrument description
” section. Various design modifications of both types are also available.
