    I understand this can be a legitimate instrument, but what is that guy doing to it?

  3. It's probably a perfectly fine instrument. I saw one for sale so I looked it up, and this was the first result unfortunately.

    Yeah, I bet it could sound like an instrument in the hands of any musician. So, what song is that supposed to be? :bag:

    This is usually the point where I'd make some snide comment about listeners needing to listen to the notes he's not playing... but in this instance I don't think there are any...

    Or could ever be written. Musical Pi. Quite impressive really, when you think about it.

    To be fair, I watched his hands, and I'm pretty sure this is an unlabeled "shreds" style video and not what he's actually playing, but I'm not going to let that get in the way of a good time. ;)

    Looks like an attempt to sort of copy the Megatar which is actually a pretty cool instrument.

    Saw people like this all the time in my 10 years at a large chain music store. It was awful. Been out of that life for 3 years now... don't miss it one bit.
