I still don’t have a Wii (out of stock everywhere and also I haven’t tried very hard) but that hasn’t stopped me from fantasizing about things to do with the accelerometer in the Wii controller.

First I came across this collection of videos of the 20 Greatest Guitar Solos. My main thought was “a little guitar solo goes a long way”.

Then I watched this Wii Wiimote Ableton Live Controller video.

So here’s my Wii guitar idea:

1. Strap the Wiimote to the headstock of your guitar.

2. Run your guitar through some effects, such as say, a flanger or a filter.

3. Have the Wiimote control various expressive parameters of the effects.

This way, when you pull this move:

Not only would you be looking dead sexy, you’d also be making expressive changes in your guitar sound based on the movement of the accelerometer in the Wiimote. Everybody wins!

Lars on My Wii Guitar Idea

Hm, excellent idea! I don’t have a Wii either, but bought a Wiimote nonetheless, just to play (no pun intended) around with (Darwiimote / Ableton etc.)

To let the accelerometer of the Wiimote trigger effects… Excellent idea!
