Not so much a thought experiment as a single neuron misfire.

There are quite a few aids that allow people to learn a tune, sheet music, tabs (for guitar), cd's etc.
I thought it would be a good idea to have a system that would allow me to convert sheet music/tabs to sound (and then I saw my cousin listen to a CD when he got stuck). If listening to the tune
doesn't work then you usually need someone to show you how (over and over again while you practice).
So I propose a program that converts sheet music/tabs into an animation of someone playing a guitar (or the instrument of choice).
||Tablature pretty much does that, no? Put your fingers where the dots are, rinse and repeat.
||True, it does do that... I forgot to mention that the animation should be accompanied by sound... I am not sure why having someone play something for me gives me slightly more information than the tab...
