I have a vocal harmonizer pedal from TC electronics which takes input

playing, and creates vocal harmonies.
I'm wondering if there might be a linux program to determine the
chords I'm playing,, on my guitar, and turn these in to midi notes,
and play a synth or sequencer along with my guitar.
I'm not looking so much for a midi guitar because I don't want to
modify my instruments, and I don't always play the same guitar. but
this vocal pedal does a pretty good job of tracking chords on my
guitar, so i was thinking maybe a program could do the same thing, and
with that i could create midi accompaniment, maybe driving a sampler
this is just a dream fueled by a lack of steady bandmates, but a guy
can dream right?
thanks so much!.
There are several options:
* Guitarix gxtuner LV2 plugin which does audio to MIDI
* Rakarrack can do audio to MIDI
* There are Puredata patches that can accomplish this too
These alternatives don't determine what chords you play though, at best
they can determine separate notes.
