What happens when you take a Rock Band fan, a guitar peripheral, modding skills, plus a pair of an LED emitter and receiver? You get this cool light beam guitar mod. If the strum bar was getting too low-tech for your tastes, then maybe you should make like adderd019 and turn your boring old peripheral into tomorrow's plaything?
If you're interested in following his footsteps, all you gotta do is hook your peripheral up with an LED emitter and the receiver to the strum bar was, then make with the wires to the controller so the guitar registers a strum whenever the light beam between the emitter and receiver is broken. He makes it sound so easy.
