Abstrakt

In this paper, a novel method for analyzing guitar performances is proposed. It is both fast and effective at extracting the activated string, fret, and plucking position from guitar recordings. The method is derived from guitar-string physics and, unlike the state of the art, does not require audio recordings as training data. A maximum a posteriori classifier is proposed for estimating the string and fret based on a simulated model of feature vectors while the plucking position is estimated using estimated inharmonic partials. The method extracts features from audio with a pitch estimator that estimates also the inharmonicity of the string. The string and fret classifier is evaluated on recordings of an electric and acoustic guitar under noisy conditions. The performance is comparable to the state of the art, and the performance is shown to degrade at SNRs below 20 dB. The plucking position estimator is evaluated in a proof-of-concept experiment with sudden changes of string, fret and plucking positions, which shows that these can be estimated accurately. The proposed method operates on individual 40 ms segments and is thus suitable for high-tempo and real-time applications.
