SYSTEME D'APPRENTISSAGE POUR UN INSTRUMENT A CORDES, EN PARTICULIER UNE GUITARE La présente invention concerne un système d'apprentissage pour un instrument à cordes, en particulier une guitare. LEARNING SYSTEM FOR A STRINGED INSTRUMENT, PARTICULARLY A GUITAR The invention relates to a learning system for a stringed instrument, in particular a guitar.

L'apprentissage de la guitare implique la mémorisation des accords, et du placement des doigts sur les 10 cordes. Learning the guitar involves memorizing chords, and finger placement on the 10 strings.

L'invention vise à faciliter ce travail de mémorisation pour un joueur débutant ou occasionnel. The invention aims to facilitate the memorization work for a beginner or casual player. On connaît dans l'état de la technique plusieurs solutions. Known in the state of several technical solutions.

L'une d'entre fait appel à une réglette 15 présentant les notes, munie d'un curseur permettant de visualiser la position des doigts sur les cordes en fonction d'un accord sélectionné. One of them uses a slider 15 having the notes, provided with a cursor for viewing the position of the fingers on the strings according to a selected chord. Ce dispositif, connu sous le nom de "réglette de Daddy", et dont une variante est décrite dans la demande de brevet américain US2002/0096036 et certes une aide 20 utile, mais nécessite un effort important pour traduire le positionnement indiqué par la réglette, la formation de l'accord sur l'instrument. This device, known as the "ruler Daddy", and one variant is described in US patent application US2002 / 0096036 and certainly support 20 useful but requires significant effort to translate the position indicated by the slider, the formation of the agreement on the instrument.

On a proposé d'autres solutions, consistant à coller sur un manche d'un instrument à corde une bande 25 longitudinale autocollante. other solutions have been proposed of bonding to a handle of a string instrument 25 a self-adhesive longitudinal band. Une telle solution est décrite dans le brevet US6128603 ou US6452080. Such a solution is disclosed in US6128603 or US6452080. Cette solution n'est pas totalement satisfaisante car la bande longitudinale recouvre les barrettes d'une guitare et fausse la musicalité de l'instrument. This solution is not entirely satisfactory because the longitudinal strip covers the bars of a guitar and false musicality of the instrument.

On a également proposé une solution consistant à coller des pastilles sur le manche de la guitare. It has also been proposed a solution of bonding of the pellets on the neck of the guitar. Cette solution décrite dans le brevet américain US3978756 n'est pas non plus satisfaisante car elle est source d'erreur. The solution described in US Patent US3978756 are not satisfactory because it is a source of error. En effet, le nombre important de pastilles à coller multiplie les risques de positionnement erroné. Indeed, the large number of paste pellets increases the risk of incorrect positioning. Par ailleurs, les pastilles de marquage recouvrent la totalité de la surface de la case. Furthermore, the marking pellets cover the entire surface of the box.

Le but de la présente invention est de proposer une solution remédiant à ces inconvénients. The purpose of the present invention to provide a solution overcomes these drawbacks.

A cet effet, l'invention concerne selon son acception la plus générale un système d'apprentissage pour un instrument à cordes, en particulier une guitare caractérisé en ce qu'il est constitué par une pluralité d'éléments 10 présentant chacune inférieure à la distance entre deux barrettes consécutives et une largeur sensiblement égale à la largeur du manche, lesdits éléments présentant des marquages pour repérages des notes. To this end, the invention pertains in its broadest sense to a learning system for a stringed instrument, particularly a guitar characterized in that it is constituted by a plurality of elements 10 each having less than the distance between two consecutive bars and a width substantially equal to the width of the sleeve, said elements having markings trails notes.

Selon une première variante, lesdits éléments 15 sont constitués par des languettes autocollantes. In a first variant, said elements 15 consist of self-adhesive tabs.

Selon une deuxième variante, lesdits éléments sont constitués par des pochettes autocollantes et des languettes destinées à être insérées dans lesdites pochettes. In a second variant, said elements consist of adhesive covers and tabs to be inserted in said pockets.

De préférence, lesdits éléments présentent des 20 hauteurs correspondant sensiblement à la moitié de l'intervalle entre deux barrettes adjacentes. Preferably, said elements 20 have heights substantially corresponding to half the interval between two adjacent bars.

Selon une variante, les éléments comportent des marquages d'un premier type pour les notes en dièse et des marquages d'une deuxième type pour le marquage des bémols, et 25 des marquages d'un troisième type pour les autres notes. Alternatively, the items comprise markings of a first type for sharp in notes and markings of a second type for the marking of flats, and 25 of the markings of a third type to the other notes.

L'invention sera mieux comprise à la lecture de la description qui suit, concernant un exemple non limitatif de réalisation illustré par la figure unique. The invention will be better understood from reading the following description concerning a non-limiting embodiment illustrated by the single figure.

Le système d'apprentissage est constitué par une 30 pluralité d'éléments collés sur le manche (1) d'un instrument à corde, en l'occurrence une guitare. The learning system 30 is constituted by a plurality of elements affixed to the handle (1) of a string instrument, in this case a guitar. Chacun des éléments est collé dans la case définie par l'espace du manche compris entre deux barrettes (2). Each of the elements is bonded into the box defined by the sleeve of the space between two webs (2).

Ces éléments (3) sont constitués par des languettes autocollantes présentant sur l'une des surfaces un marquage sous la forme: du nom des notes (notation internationale ou 5 allemande) correspondant aux cordes sur lesquelles le doigt doit s'appuyer, au niveau de la case correspondante ou d'une forme graphique, par exemple d'un point de couleur différente pour chaque note, avec une correspondance avec la couleur de la note utilisée pour la 10 partition du morceau à jouer ou encore de la forme graphique d'une note sur une partition. These elements (3) are constituted by adhesive strips having on one surface a mark in the form: the names of the notes (International or 5 German notation) corresponding to the strings on which the finger should be based, at the box or graphic form, for example a point of different color for each note, with a match with the color of the note used to score 10 of the song to play or graphic form of a notes on a score.

Ces éléments peuvent également être réalisés par la combinaison de pochettes auto-adhésives et transparentes, 15 dans lesquelles seront insérées les languettes portant les These elements can also be realized by the combination of self-adhesive and transparent pockets 15 in which are inserted the tongues carrying the

inscriptions correspondante. corresponding inscriptions.

Chaque élément (3) présente une largeur correspondant à la largeur du manche de l'instrument. Each member (3) has a width corresponding to the width of the handle of the instrument.

La hauteur de chaque élément (3) diffère, en 20 fonction de la dimension de la case correspondante. The height of each element (3) differs by 20 depending on the size of the corresponding box.

La hauteur peut être égale à la dimension de la case, ou être inférieure de façon à être ajustée le long de la barrette supérieure. The height can be equal to the dimension of the box, and not less so as to be adjusted along the upper bar.

Les languettes présentent des marquages 25 correspondants aux différentes notes, avec des couleurs différentes pour les marquages correspondants au bémols (4) et d'une couleur différente (5) pour les dièses. The tongues have markings 25 corresponding to the different ratings, with different colors for the corresponding markings flats (4) and a different color (5) for sharps.

Lorsque les languettes présentent une dimension 30 inférieure à la taille de la case. When the tabs 30 have a size smaller than the size of the box. Elles laissent ainsi apparaître une partie de la frette non recouverte par la languette, dans la partie inférieure de la case. They leave thus shows a part of the non-covered hoop by the tongue in the lower part of the box. Cette zone non recouverte correspond à la zone recommandée pour l'appui du doigt. This uncovered region is the recommended area for the support finger.

L'absence de marquage conduit instinctivement l'utilisateur à poser son doigt plutôt sur cette zone que sur la partie supérieure de la case présentant la languette. The absence of marking instinctively leads the user to place their finger on this area rather than on the top of the box with the tab.
