I just had a random thought, is it possible? Would the lack of gravity screw with the string vibration?
#2
No. Vibration is based on tension. It's not being directed towards gravity, it's vibrating in the direction it was picked.

EDIT: No as in No, it would not affect the string vibrations. Not No as in No it could not be done. So No as in Yes, it could be done. Capiche?

Ummm, petrol? Nip down to your local petrol station, buy a litre of the stuff and soak your balls in it, light them up and start playing with them.

Wouldn't the fact that we have gravity make string vibration more restricted anyway? So if anything, you might have a bit more sustain without gravity lol.

wow thats a good question thats gotta feel awkword tho ? and would your guitar be detuned if you had a floyd rose in a spacy inviorment is what i just thought of, cause i noiticed when i tilt my guitar with a floyd rose on it to sit on my lap the tuning slightly changes (not that mutch tho, just a lil flat)

Edit: my mind was playing tricks on me i think

0G environment is not possible, since any object with mass creates gravity.

Wouldn't that fuck with the sound waves anyway? Or is this just my lack of science education biting me in the ass?

Could be, but the most important thing to remember is that it wasn't your fault, even if it was.

No, but you would have more sustain in a frictionless environment.

I took a pic of myself, cut a hole in the face and stuck my knob through so i could see what I'd look like if I got bitten by a radioactive elephant.

Lol, your guitar shouldn't do that, Floyds are based on tension, you have to have them balanced between the tension of the springs and of the strings.

This, and for what TS is thinking about, yeah you could. Gravity doesn't do shit.

Wrong. The thing you're thinking of is a lack of air, which is a medium for sound waves to travel through.

its slight and barley noiticeable and i do have it balnced, its just the extra kick of gravity seems like it will slightly detune when i tilt my guitar to my lap lol

Uh, no. Sound waves are mechanical waves, which require a medium to travel through. They can't go through vacuums like space.

Huh.

Cool...



Your mere presence in a theoretical 0G environment would nullify the concept because even human beings have a gravitational field.

Provided you are playing in a pressurized atmosphere environment, a guitar should work perfectly well. If you're using an electric, I'd recommend humbuckers, I don't know what being up there with cosmic radiation, the Van Allen belt, and Earth's magnetic field will do in terms of interference on single pickups.

It's a bit of a challenge to fix yourself and the instrument in place, but it just takes a bit of ingenuity. Provided it passes the NASA tests, astronauts can and have taken instruments with them to the ISS, including what I assume was an acoustic guitar:
