People do a good job with these on youtube but I still see it as a
professional's toy.
It just feels nothing like a musical instrument.
Plastic, silicon and small.

It's still a really cool tool though.
Great for midi and synth work on PC.
Live performance with it is just so overboard to me.

Author You Rock Guitar (7 months)
+Brian Sheu It does have onboard sounds! The second generation comes with
30, and we are currently working on downloadable content (DLC) for users to
grab from the internet and put directly on the YRG!

I love all the "constructive" criticism from some of those commenting about
this guy's technique - which is, as far as you know, awesome since it's a
MIDI guitar and inherently different. The point is he put together a great
sounding demo of a MIDI guitar without relying on an over the top VSTi.
What have you haters done lately? Played Stairway to Heaven at your local
music shop? Great work Dan!

Author Geir Offenberg (3 years)
is that touch sensitive or does all tapping give full midi volum signal?

Author Davide Dopesick (3 years)
@RuiCarinhoso this is a midi guitar. Means that it sends a digital signal
to the pc, that interpretates it as you want. You can even use it as a
slide trombone, if you have the software LOL

Author WarriorOfMetal RoadOfKings (2 years)
Yes I know but for that you have to change the sound is not like a (dont
know the name in english) pedalboard that you press and change, in computar
you have to take the mouse and change, do you understand what I saying? For
exemple min 1:44.

Author DanMummSolo (3 years)
@IcantDiedeadenough It's a You Rock Guitar. It doesn't need to be tuned
because it has no actual strings. It's a midi guitar that plays and feels a
lot like a real guitar but with infinite possibilities. It's the first midi
guitar I've played that actually has allowed me to use techniques like
sweep picking and high speed runs.

Author immobile2005 (2 years)
The unfortunate thing about this guitar is that it really takes the lame
standing still and focusing to make sure you don't accidentally remotely
brush any of the other notes or strings. I can play all these licks on my
guitar, but I try to play then on the you rock guitar and man.. its just
very very unresponsive. Half of the time the strings randomly sound if it's
not in tap mode.

Author Steven Brown (2 years)
as good as this dood is as the technique , it's playin still sucks because
it's got no emotion.

Author chandlerbird617 (2 years)
@jaicdc1 You could probably sample harmonics. I have one coming in the mail
and i must say that i'm really excited. Although the samples would have to
come from some other program lick reason, pro tools, logic or cubase. I
doubt they have a harmonics patch on the You Rock itself.

it into an amp without going into a computer via midi)? Sounds good. I'm

@mickusb80 Because of all of the tapping techniques used in the song it
would be impossible to play it not in tap mode. You have to understand that
it's capabilities are incredible, but it's not going to work exactly like a
regular guitar. For this style of playing, it should stay in tap mode
cosntantly. It is running a clean guitar sound through an amp emulation
software while simultaneously running the midi through a synth. Thanks for

@valkiris Thanks! It's the You Rock Guitar. It's a midi guitar that can
also work as a controller for games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. They
sent it to me to demo and review. My next video will be a full review of
the guitar as a musical instrument.

Author DanMummSolo (3 years)
@halfmastmutiny You should really learn more about midi first. However, it
does have the capability to just plug in with a quarter inch jack and use
sounds from an internal sound bank. It has a wide variety of sounds built
in. But it becomes truly amazing when you use it as a midi controller. Then
it can sound like anything you want it to.

Author blind082008 (3 years)
I have a question is there any point anyone should get that guitar because
I have been playing for two years and I'm fine with my Dean custom guitars.
I was just wondering besides gaming why should anyone get that guitar. BTW
The song was amazing I love it.

The song is great, but the product most probably would not work for me,
since I love to mess around with the keyboards (even though I am a
guitarist), cause it makes me think different and the music i write in this
way is more creative...

Author Therioz (2 years)
Holy crap that was awesome. I am a guitarist who has been struggling with
playing keys for midi control. You make me really want one of these.

Author youtubeuserwilly (3 years)
Can you play "The Girl From Ipanema" on it?

Author Dmitry Chumak (2 years)
That's a good point to make; just seeing the notes differently changes your
approach, but this fact cuts both ways. Writing a piano part can be greatly
more creative with a YRG since you get larger ranges and odder shapes than
the conventional ways of playing certain chords. Besides, there's no reason
why you have to stop using your keyboard.
