Idea I had yesterday: The Human Karaoke
So, like, I set up a database of all the songs I know on the piano, and find all the lyrics for them and add those to the database.
Then I have, like, a large touchscreen of some kind near a microphone, where people go up and select the song they want me to play (searchable by title, genre, lyric...). I'd probably want another display with me at the keyboard, which would show me the words as well (and maybe the starting chord, cuz sometimes I go blank on that) so I wouldn't lose my place.
And I play the song on the keyboard, and the other person sings it.
This seems like the kind of thing where I could rent myself out for parties, or maybe charge per song, or ask for PayPal donations.
Would need to write some software, tho.
Having done that, though, I could do a trial version of it online (without the karaoke -- just me performing) to work out the bugs.
Trying to decide if I should put effort into this...
