Kinect, a 3D sensing device from Microsoft, invoke th..: human computer interaction research evolution. Kinect was implemented in many scope area including music. One was implemented in virtual musical instrument (VMI) system, which use natural gestures to produce synthetic sound similar with real musical instrument. From related work, found that the use of large joint such as hand, arm and leg are inconvenient and limit the way of playing VMI. Thus, this study proposed a fast and reliable finger tracking algorithm yet suitable for virtual musical instrument playing. In addition, a virtual guitar system application developed as an implementation of the proposed algorithm. Experimental result shows that the proposed method is able to use to play many variety of songs with an acceptable quality of songs. Furthermore proposed application could be used by a beginner who does not have any experience in music or on playing a real musical instrument.
