OUTSTANDING!!!! beautiful harmonies, and great movement.

 

That was seriously cool as hell. I’ve never seen any instrument like that before. Looks like they took the part of a guitar that people string tight for finger tapping and just made it a whole damn instrument. Incredible, especially considering this guy is amazing at playing it as well…

 

This guys is seriously talented, must have taken him ages to learn and play that well on such a unique instrument.

 

cool! must take an hour to tune it

That’s actually the Chapman Stick, industriously created by an old friend, Emmett Chapman (living up in the Hollywood Hills). The “nickname,” if you will, is sometimes “The Stick.” One of the first “names” to play the Chapman Stick was/is Alphonso Johnson (Weather Report). It’s really a bass, more than anything — not “an electrical instrument,” and much of the sound is created by TAPPING the strings with both hands. I’d also add that one never STOPS learning how to play the Chapman Stick.

Hope that helps!
