Robots can do just about anything. They can assemble vehicles, risk their non-life to retrieve a car bomb, dance, kill, rape, and even play Guitar Hero without missing a note. So when are these emotionless tin cans going to shred? That I would like to see, even if their tone will suck ass.

Once Japan gets on this, I demand a face off between the guitar playing robot and Yngwie Malmsteen.

they would probably just play chords because only humans are worthy of the awesomeness that is shredding.

Technically speaking robots have been able to play guitar for years.

But in the sense of an actual robot physically playing an actual guitar... Probably wont ever happen, it'd be pointless, entirely possible with todays technology though.

robots someday will be able to play anything already made. And improvise, but using licks already used and programmed into him. Robots won't ever learn how to make good music by themselves. The closest they can get is putting random sequences of chords or licks together because only humans can tell what sounds good or not.

Computer programmed music is kind of the same thing as robots playing guitar, except it's pointless because humans can already get any sound they need out of a guitar without robots. I think computer programmed music explores a lot of cool possibilities, but robots playing guitar is pretty pointless.

I don't think those count because each song has to be programmed. The robot has no part in the creative process.

1. When people talk about putting emotion into playing, they usually mean making stupid faces and using a lot of vibrato and bends.
2. If robots could play guitar, they could certainly use vibrato and bends and they could probably make stupid faces if necessary.
3. Emotions aren't some magical thing that can never be replicated by robots.

This is so incredibly right. I'm tired of people saying that music is self-expression. Not that it isn't; it's just that everything you do from the way you walk to the way you blow your nose is self-expression (there is something about you that makes you do it a certain way).

I would also like to note that it is not necessary for people to be emotional at all when composing or playing music. Sadness (in music), is a quality of music not necessarily of the person that wrote/played the music.

They are some magical thing. If anything could have them, then how come only living organisims(sp??) have them? I don't see my mousemat suffering from depression.

What I mean, is, sure you could program and replicate the effects of emotions that happen to the human body into robots, but could you actually program an emotion into a machine?

I don't think so.

You... just don't get it. This is so bad i'm not gonna even argue with this ignorence.

Robots are programmed by humans, so they will never truely play their own music.

But if they start using algorithims, musicians are in deep shit. (shit *edited for those with UG classic still.)

I'd like to see a robot with a strat into a naturally over-driven fender tube amp play the blues.

Can't see that happening. Ever.
