Recently, I was watching a random Guthrie Govan lesson video on YouTube (I get a sick satisfaction out of watching guitarists who are much better than I am). In the clip, which you can check out here, Govan was discussing elements of his right-hand (or right-thumb) "slap" technique.
Below, check out this recently posted (August 29) clip of the AK47 guitar, aka the GATTAR. The video is very cool because it shows exactly how the guitar was made, from start to finish, with closeups of the tools and the axe in various stages of its creation.
Students from Purdue University's School of Mechanical Engineering have developed the Ghost Pedal, a wireless device that uses sensors attached to the guitar player's foot to create a wah effect -- minus the physical pedal.
In this case, a person named Mehdi Sadaghdar made a video — titled "How NOT to Build an Electric Guitar (The Hazards of Electricity)" — and posted it to YouTube. You can check it out below. When you do that, please let us know what you think in the comments or on Facebook!
This video has been played on YouTube more than 158 million times — but here it is again, just in case you've missed it! It's Canadian band Walk off the Earth — with singer Sarah Blackwood — playing a clever cover of Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" using the same Epiphone acoustic guitar, all at once.
