EAMIR - Guitar Hero

Using the controller of the popular game Guitar Hero, I began writing a program that would allow the buttons of this controller to play the notes of any diatonic scale. Since, nearly all of my K-12 students play this game regularly (and better than me), I saw the practicality of using this controller, which they all seem to know, as an interface for making tonal music. The first 4 buttons are mapped to the 8 notes of any diatonic scale with respect to any tonic. The fifth button enables chord mode which enables each note to act as the root for the typical bar chord voicing found in guitar literature. The back button on the controller allows them to switch the octave designation.
