I think Hardy is suggesting a software that gives you the option for how you want to play along with a track. Either pull out the piece of interest to make learning it easier - or then pull it out of the song but the leave the song intact to see how you can play along with the song.

Guitar hero is a video game with colour coded buttons on a plastic guitar - I dont know that its anything like what he is suggesting? But then, what I know about video games you could write on the back of a stamp.

I mean the concept moreso, the young lad loves it and it has helped him understand chords and stuff like that.  It basically lets you play the lead guitar through the plastic guitar but you can't stop it etc that I know of.  Obviously clever Hardy is thinking of an advanced version of the idea!  But he better have the Fiddle covered!

Puck - I was christened Hardyarse the Fiddler; shortened it when I grew up - hence BC1's concern.

You're correct in your interpretation of what I'm describing. The unique technology is the ability to extract an instrument or vocal from a digital track or suppress it in the track. This creates an ideal tool for jam and practice. No other technology can do this. There are products that separate out the original recording tracks, but obviously you need to have the original tracks available. This does it from the raw mp3 or whatever.

The technology exists - I'm working with the people who are trying to commercialise it. We've done a fair bit of market research, but I just wanted to get the opinion of a trusted group!

BC1 - you'll be delighted to hear that it works for the fiddle as well - any instrument or vocal, in fact.
Thanks all for the input so far - any more appreciated.

id buy it if it wasnt very expensive.audacity can take the vocals out of a track,but the quality of the track is severly affected.not sure if it can do any more than that.
Fcuk you I won't do what ya tell me!!!

Thanks for the feedback everybody. Any more appreciated.

Dougal - it can both suppress and extract vocal or instruments in a track.

Hardy, I am interested in this. There is, or at least was, a guy in City (gone) West that seems to have figured a way to seperate soundtracks like what you are saying. I subscribed to a company but it did not work out. Give us a shout next year for updates.

BTW I am currently in the middle of a project trying to get a kind of retrofit for this technology and am stuck on how the knot was tied. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nD2G5LHowI&feature=related

Keep up the research and let us know when you are ready to launch.

Is it normal to want to throw the thing out the f**king window a few times with a bloodied hand??!!

Played for an hour yesterday and half an hour today and in pain! Can't get my pinkie to hold down that shitty bottom string. AAAAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!

Learning to play the tin whistle was 20 times easier, why can't learning music just be like that?!
