Look at 6:30 onwards: the guy is singing into the pickups

How in the world is that possible? Does he have some kind of weird pickups or what?

edit: kinda creepy, i must say
everything purple tastes like grape
everything blue tastes like blueberry
everything pink tastes like watermelon
everything red tastes like strawberry

Looks like he's eating out his guitar.

But I think what happens is his voice makes the strings vibrate slightly, and the pickups pick up these vibrations.

Try it yourself. Pickups are essentially microphones. Crap ones though.

Maybe not really, but it's worked on all guitars i've tried it on.

All I want to know is how singing into pickups is possible
I just posted the video as an example, don't look at it if you don't want to

But I thought they could only pick up the mechanical vibrations of something magnetic?

We've already said. Only works with incredibly powerful pickups, usually active ones. They detect the tiny vibrations in the strings caused by speech, thus amplifying them.

I've seen others do that. Kinda cool.

Plug headphones into the input of an amp and one of the headphones works as a microphone. Kinda related, but damn fun.

Meh, it's not for everyone, I guess. Still doesn't stop me from politely asking you to please go die in a fire.

all sound is made of vibrations so the vibrations in your vioce vibrate the strings and the picks ups...well pick it up (i cant explain it very well)

Especially when you use a wah pedal. Also bigger headphones get more sound in, as I have found out. With them you can turn the drive up really high and you can make some cool sounds.

This makes me want an octave pedal.

Furthermore, the fact that the guy uses a bow for the rest of the song is awesome. I think he may just be an unconventional genius.

My friend does it all the time, you just gotta stick your adams apople to the pickups and talk. i try to do it on my bass, but my bass is so horrible that the pickups cant pick up my vibrations lol.

I've seen Kings of Leon do it. Took me forever to figure out what he was doing. It works on almost all active pickups. It worked on my Epiphone
