This may be one of the coolest things I've ever seen. The angles and precision needed for this instrument to work is just amazing. Enjoy.

Yeah it is pretty cool.

It's animated isn't it?

Animated as in CGI? I didn't seem like that to me. This totally reminds me of an Instrument that Blue Man Group or Cirque de Solei would come up with.
BMG uses a lot of PVC pipes for their instruments.

Very cool indeed. I want behind the scenes to see what goes into making one of these. The control mechanisms and programming that goes into something like this blows my noogin away.

Musical instruments were never a part of my education and I'm kinda disappointed about that. Guess it's never too late to learn, or is it with music?

It is never too late to learn music.

And don't let anyone tell you that such a thing requires years of work.

That is something that people who don't play use to "measure up" players...
"So and so has been playing guitar for X amount of years."

In reality, your ability grows with your dedication and some natural talent.
Mostly it is dedication though.

(Speaks as if he is a musician himself

My goal is two hours of guitar a day. I tend to try and split my playing time between learning songs I like listening to and working various scale drills.

However, if you decide to pick up an instrument, the first thing you should do (this is a piece of advice that I was given by an uncle who has travelled the world playing guitar) is learn your major and minor chords. Work on them until you know them intimately.
After that, have fun.

On topic, I think that thing is animated.

Thanks Jay, I appreciate the advice. As far as the instrument is concerned, I'm leaning towards animation as well.
