Real-time guitar string detection for music education software
In this paper, we present a novel approach to real-time detection of the string number and fretboard position from polyphonic guitar recordings. Our goal is to assess, if a music student is correctly performing guitar exercises presented via music education software or a remote guitar teacher. We combine a state-of-the art approach for multi-pitch detection with a subsequent audio feature extraction and classification stage. Performance of the proposed system is evaluated with manually annotated chords recorded using different guitars.
