Musician Coaxes The Sounds Of Different Instruments Out Of His Guitars Using A Variety Of Techniques

May 2, 2019


This is a video of musician Davidlap getting his electric and acoustic guitar to pretend they're different instruments by playing them in unusual ways. Instruments include: bagpipe, koto, percussion, violin and cello (with and without bow), sitar, bass, and banjo. Which was your favorite? I think the bagpipes were mine, and I'm not just saying that because they were the first one and I didn't watch the whole video.

Keep going for the video while I call all my old bandmates and let them know I still hate them and will never forgive what they did.

Thanks to Ash, for reminding me my least favorite bandmate of all was the time I was in that one-man band.

    K so the violin / cello (with a pen) starting at 1:08 is legit impressive. Everything else is kinda meh. Good clean bow technique though.

    I don't quite follow how the banjo thing worked. I get the bass because you dampen the vibrations with the cloth. But the pickups are magnetic right? So... how does taping over them change the string vibration?

    After 5 years I decided to leave my previous occupation and it changed my way of living... I started off doing a special job on-line, for a company I discovered on-line, for a few hrs per day, and I acquire more than I actually did on my old job... Previous pay-check I got was Nine thousand bucks... Impressive point regarding this is the fact I have additional time for my family. Test it out, what it's all about...
