Conceptualised as a layered virtual instrument, the Blues Engine is a web based instrument emulator designed to allow children to explore different patterns of blues rhythms, and then take the lead with their own guitar 'licks'. The Blues Engine can be pre configured by exercises in the web pages, and makes use of either the computer's MIDI sounds or an external sampler. In the latter case more complex chord patterns can be developed from the sampled notes of three different saxophones.
