in a literal sense, putting things between the strings would be impossible on guitar. But if you mean tweak the instrument to sound different, what do you think pedals, amp channels, several pickups and different tunings are for? lol

He meant what he said, actually. I've heard of it, I find it VERY interesting, but I've never tried it for myself.

Beat the recession by soldering your strings back together! What's more, the extra metal vibrating back and forth will add to your tone... and what could be more metal than more metal!?!

Yea ^


Tried it last night with a toothpick near the bridge, made everything sound really clunky like weird percussion. I'd upload a clip but im without any computer to record with pro tools right now and it's too cool a noise to record with just a crap PC mic.

You should try it sometime, i think wooden things/paper/plastic would be best to use if you're worried about damaging strings though.

I sometimes get a thin pick (Dunlop orange Tortex, .60) and wedge it through the strings at the bridge, so it goes over 2nd, under 1st and 3rd strings, then get another one and do it for strings 4 5 and 6. It gives a compeltely different sound and is quite fun. I've also done it with coins and cards.
