MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. Simply put, what this means if you have a computer, cell phone, musical instrument that can be connected to a computer or computer part in some way, or just about anything else that is capable of playing, producing, or otherwise letting you experience music, then chances are there’s a MIDI in there somewhere.
If a band is playing Fender acoustic guitars, the instruments will probably either be MIDI-capable themselves, or have the ability to incorporate MIDI technology.
Even those who like to play using “vintage reproduction” guitars can have the best of both worlds. Gibson guitars that are designed to match those used by famous guitar players, both past and present have MIDI capabilities.
