How it was done ...
Ted's Guitar is a Java Applet designed with Visual J++, and the Java API 1.0.2. The guitar notes were played on a MIDI keyboard and recorded as 30 separate sound files, sampled at 8K. The scanned guitar images were resized to fit on a 640 by 480 screen, using Micrografx Picture Publisher.

Ted's Guitar was created by Greg DurniakCopyright ©1998.
