I imagine it would take quite a lot of processing muscle to be able to go analog to digital in a short enough time to be responsive while still sorting out multiple tones.

E-Rock's optical pickup is an interesting idea, then each string would read as a particular tone. This brings us back to just guitar though (or just string instruments, I guess.) and less of a sound-based input.

If you're in the market for a new Rock Band axe, it looks like you'll be heading to Best Buy very, very soon. That's right, the Rock Band 3 Squier Stratocaster is seemingly a BB exclusive. The $280 peripheral, which requires the MIDI PRO-Adapter to function, will hit shelves on March 1st. Until then, we'll just have to be happy with the Mustang Pro.

Someone was saying they had them on demo already. I'll be interested to see how it plays.

I've had the #2 record for this song for a week or so now:

Even better is that I can play the song on a real guitar now. The intro is kind of fun.
