Using what I have learned in this week’s lab, I was able to finish my Arduino code and began testing it with simple jumper wires to emulate my switches and buttons before I mock up the project with the parts that I will eventually mount to my guitar. Attached is my code. Below is a picture of one of each of my parts.
In order, a pushbutton, switch, and red and green LEDs. The LEDs are slightly different than those that I had initially found online and will require external load resistors so that they do not burn out. To allow easy mounting of this slightly additional circuitry, I will mount everything to perfboard and purchase a mounting block for my Teensy so that I can mount it on the board and house it in the guitar to keep everything streamlined. To allow for this, I will also purchase a panel mount USB port to mount near the 1⁄4” output jack of my guitar so that I can run a longer USB tether to my computer without it being snaked from the inside of the guitar.
