Guitariano instrument description
Playing on Guitariano and controlling of all functions is very simple and clear.
Tune in the unison, in the polyphony and also in full chords is played only with left hand by pressing keys on the neck. You only have to forget playing the "empty strings" like you play them on classical guitar. On Guitariano, like on piano, sound only those tones, which you press.
With a right hand you control the auto-accompaniment chords and also other functions of Guitariano, like sound selection, rhythm style, volumes adjusting, etc. Accompaniment chord selection buttons, placed on the Guitariano body, are arranged into system called quatro circle chord system.
It means that dominant and subdominant chord is always in tight neighborhood to the tonic. Cotrolling the accompaniment system is really simple and easy to remember it, and therefore the right hand does not require any eye-control and player can be fully concentrated on his left hand playing on the neck of the instrument.
Right hand always stays in just one position and each finger handling only three buttons which are one under another :
  • Fore finger - controls chord buttons C, F, Bb
  • Middle finger - controls chord buttons G, Ab, Eb
  • Ring finger - controls chord buttons D, C#, F#
  • Little finger - controls chord buttons A, E, B 
  • The thumb moves in horizontal position and handles chord modification buttons (Minor, 7th, Dim, etc.) placed on the left side of chord buttons. Further the thumb is used to control accompaniment functions such as Chord memory, Fill-in selection, Stop-Time inserting, etc.
    The lower part of the palm handles buttons "Start/Stop" and "Fill In".
