Here’s something that should put a smile on your face.
In a world where we increasingly reach for plugins and shortcuts to make music, a guy by the YouTube name of David Lap has found novel ways to create sounds of other instruments with a guitar and other stuff.
Writing in the YouTube notes he says;
I tried to get closer to the sound of some musical instruments with my acoustic and electric guitars, without using pedals, midi, synth or special effects. I discovered that using an air compressor it is possible to get close to the sound of wind instruments: the compressed air makes the strings vibrate and allows to get a sound very different from that of the guitar. Playing on different strings and different octaves, by selecting the different pick ups, it is possible to obtain different timbres. The instruments were reproduced using the clean sound or at most some distortion. I use only objects to change the sound of the guitar. Enjoy it! VERY IMPORTANT: let me know which instrument you liked the most :)
They say that necessity is the mother of invention, in this case imagination is the mother of creativity.
It’s a must watch video which gets a big thumbs up from us!
