That sounds very much interesting. I am following the chuck list  
without actually using chuck, because i use PureData. But i am also a  
giutarisct and also experimenting with wiiremotes.

So I am Using the programm OSCulator to catch the Bluetooth Data from  
the wiiremote and that works pretty good.

So to track the position of the guitar it should be possible by  
simply attaching IR LED's to the guitar.

Just like this guy does



I hope this was of any help or inspiration

Have a nive day
