Nigel Tufnel's "signature guitar solos" > Jimmy Page's violin bow, any day.


But seriously, Fredrik Thordendal's breath controller for his guitar is pretty unique and weird. And AWESOME.

And no, it's NOT a talk box. It controls volume and other parameters by his breaths into the tube. This can cause his guitar to sound kind of like a woodwind instrument.
Q: Favourite Pink Floyd song?
A: The one where they get wicked high and play Emin and A for an hour.

Tom Morello......well.....he's Tom Morello

QFT.


I forgot Allan Holdsworth and his Synthaxe. That thing is pretty strange.

Cynic also use no keyboards at all on their albums. All synth sounds are handled by guitar synths. That's also pretty unique.

Paul Gilbert uses a damn drill with a pick-head to pick.
If you play guitar, please don't waste your time in The Pit, and please instead educate yourself in the Musician Talk forum, where you can be missing out on valuable info.

I Just thought of one......I saw a live Billy Idol performance once where the guitar player used one of those cheap toy guns with the lazer sound effects next to the pickups. It doesn't compare with a vibrator though.........location location location.
