Abstract [en]

An algorithm has been developed which generates fingeringsfor guitar chord sequences using a cost minimizing function.The performance of the algorithm was evaluated by two professional guitarists and the results indicate that the approach gives viable solutions. With a few minor improvements the algorithm can be a good way to calculate sets of guitar chord fingerings that suit specific needs concerning playability and ergonomic constraints.

Abstract [sv]

En algoritm har utvecklats som genererar fingersättningar för ackordsekvenser på gitarr med hjälp av en kostnadsminimerande funktion. Utvärderingen av algoritmen gjordes av två professionella gitarrister och resultaten indikerar att denna approach ger dugliga resultat. Efter ett par smärre förbättringar kan algoritmen vara ett bra sätt att beräkna fingersättningar som uppfyller specifika krav på spelbarhet och ergonomiska hänsyn.
