Musician Anthony Dickens of Studio Make Believe built the Circle Guitar, an original instrument that only requires the fretting hand to do the work. The rhythm side of the instrument is completely self-playing, with buttons that generate different effects and a motor that strikes the strings. Additionally, the guitar syncs perfectly with DAW or MIDI devices. and Dickens regularly adds upgrades and updates.
Circle generates sounds, textures, and rhythms that would be impossible with a conventional electric guitar. By using a mechanical device to strike the strings, rather than a human hand, you can exceed what is physically possible and push guitar playing into new, unexplored territories.
