I'm sure tons of young people have been faced with this question recentely by their teachers, that being; What will you do for science fair? I would really love to do something in music for it, but I have not a single idea. What are you guys doing, or have done that involves music (more importantly, guitar) in your science project? Or, do you just have any ideas?

the planets orbit around the sun was actually figure out using musical intervals, i think it was one of pavlov's works but not sure. that would be a good one and if i find the research i've got on it i'll send it if you want

How music effects your heart rate.
Listen to a rock song while walking on a treadmill.
Take your pulse.
Rest for five minutes.
Listen to a classical song on a treadmill.
Take your pulse.

The effects of harmonic frequencies on acoustic material.

...modes and scales are still useless.

That's possibly the sloppiest scientific experiment I have ever seen proposed.

It is a good response!

Not only does it involve musical devices, but could give some quite entertaining results!

Take one guitar.

Take one variable strobe light.

Match the frequency of the vibrating string with that of the strobe light and you get a standing wave... Its quite awesome.

You need to do it in the dark though so it can be seen.

Research on the scientific theory behind music. Stuff like how harmonics work. Or maybe something like how amplifiers actually amplify the sound. How do pedals actually modify the sound. How does the material the guitar is made out of affect the sound of the guitar and why does it affect the sound. How pick ups work, how do the different operating principles of the pick ups affect the sound that is eventually produced....etc

yeah it works, but its better if you just use something that vibrates with a bigger amplitude than a guitar string and it looks even better.

You could do the harmonics on a guitar; like how the nodal points work and the frequency of them.
