Had a really great tutorial today as was getting myself in a real tizzy about where my research was heading but my tutor has assured me today that not everything has to be done in order! So starting tomorrow I will be putting together some preliminary 3d models of guitar chords. It sounds odd I know but Richard has been helping me to visualise how this will work and hopefully I will have some pictures to add to this blog by the end of the week.

So, the first part of this project has been to brain storm some ideas which I have dutifully done based around the theme of 'Pattern, Communication and Interpretation'. I am thinking about the patterns that music notation creates coupled with it providing a set of instructions. I have been particularly looking at Beez's (Richard's) gutitar tabulation that he uses to decipher how to play a song. He has explained (at length ha ha) how to read it and I am slowly getting there but it is like learning a new language. I have to say I have not been right on top of the project this week as have spent most of it working but I am back to Uni on Monday so will throw myself right at it.
