I keep thinking of good useful inventions that if I made them I could make a lot of money. Unfortunately, I'm only 14.

One example is like a guitar with six lights in every fret (one for every string x 21), and you choose a key and all the lights for the right strings and fret light up. So say you wanted to play in E minor, then every E, F#, G, A, B, C, and D would light up on the guitar.

That's just one of my ideas. Does anyone else ever think of useful things they wish they could invent?

GUITAR hero..

basically instead of a toy controller you plug in a guitar and you tune your guitar to the game. in the same style of guitar hero but instead of colors there are numbers that slide down. At first its easy. As you progress and learn more of the song there are pieces to the song added.

It would also include lessons and techniques...Now THATS guitar hero..

Comments? Any similar ideas?

Yeah Im being honest. It can be done. it would go through like generic riffs. as you select harder difficulties. which would be more than just 4 like in guitar hero. you could pick a style. Even play bass. write in your own tabs. it would be more of a learning program than a game. sell it with a squier strat and thats millions right there.. I copyright that ****.. you steal.. I HERMAN RI on your head.

My dad did that. He attached loads of christmas lights to his acoustic and had them powered by a battery on the side of the guitar that you could flick on and off.

Not is it only more convenient to carry around than regular water, it is also very simple to use.

I've had this idea for a while. It's a six stringed instrument that has frets on it. Think of it as a modern day lute.

See, the tricky thing about ice is, that it doesn't hold well in high temperatures (like above freezing for instance), before it soon turns back into plain old water.

But what is so great about powdered water, is that it can go anywhere at anytime, making it perfect for those long strolls through the desert. It took my specially hired team of scientists 5 years to figure out the perfect method of making powdered water.

Oh yeah, and if guitar hero got you into the guitar? you're really playing for the wrong reasons.

there is no wrong reason to play a guitar, except for world enslavement and extermination of certain races, but those guys never make it big anyway.
