Demonic Sounding Guitar Song Of Entirely Tritone Chords (Aka The Devil's Interval)

December 13, 2017

This is a video of musician Rob Scallon (previously) performing a song on guitar that consists entirely of tritone chords. What's a tritone chord? Let me copy/paste that for you while I try to climb into the ceiling above my cubicle for a nap. A drop ceiling can totally support the weight of an adult male, right? *CRASH!* Oh lordy, I can see bone.

For this song I am allowed to play only 2 note tritone chords on the guitar tracks. No single notes.


A tritone is referring to a particular musical interval (how far away two notes are from each other) and is renowned for it's dissonance and harsh feeling of tension. A tritone name refers to the 3 whole tone distance between the two notes. ..It's rumored that the tritone was banned in medieval times, that you could be jailed for using it, that people believed it could summon the devil.

Come on, if all you had to do to summon the devil was to play some tritone chords, don't you think a lot more people would have done it already? I mean, I have this perfectly good soul to sell and it's just sitting around going to waste. "Perfectly good?" I meant used/acceptable condition. "Acceptable?" Fine, it's a turd, what'll you give me for it? Let me see what your mom packed in your lunch.

Keep going for the video while I play the song backwards and see if it gets extra satanic.

Thanks to hairless, who agrees if you really want to summon the devil you need to play pentatone chords.

    The ending was a nice touch.

  • Gingerbread

    I like how he keeps this "I'm trying to summon the devil" face while playing.

  • jodyberry

    So Bam Margera is playing guitar now?!

  • ryuujinno13

    I like it tho

  • Andyman7714

    There are simply too many notes.

  • The_Wretched

    I'd listen to this over pretty much any piano recital.

  • Bling Nye

    Needs more brown note.

  • WhiteEagle2

    This guy needs to make a song for the next Doom game.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I always thought that the Fear Factory song Zero Signal would make a great opening for Doom64. Granted, it could probably be used along with any Doom game.

  • TheQiwiMan

    DAMMIT! It worked.

    The Devil is now sitting on my couch, drinking my last Gatorade. He's got my TV on and is blaring The Big Bang Theory and he won't give me the remote back.

    :-(

    What chord can I play on my guitar to make him go away now?

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    what color gatorade?
