We present the first open source hardware (OSH) design and build of a physical robotic automated guitar player. Users’ own instruments being different shapes and sizes, the system is designed to be used and/or modified to physically attach to a wide range of instruments. Design objectives include ease and low cost of build. Automation is split into three modules: the left-hand fretting, right-hand string picking, and right hand palm muting. Automation is performed using cheap electric linear solenoids. Software APIs are designed and implemented for both low level actuator control and high level music performance.
