So this past weekend I decided to do a simple mod to my son's guitar to see if we could make it sound like a Sitar. I did some quick research ... went to the store and bought a wooden spoon to raise the strings higher and to equal height.

What do you think ?

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

That's pretty cool actually. Hm, I've got wooden spoons...

I've done that before, only I used a capo underneath the strings. If you do it right you can make a sitar sound or a banjo sound, depending on the angle of the capo. I'm probably gonna make a new part specifically for this function and try to sell it on ebay.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

that sounds very cool, how does this work? you just loosen the strings, shove a spoon underneath and tune them again?

Yes ...

1. make sure spoon is thicker than the gap
2. loosen strings
3. insert spoon
4. tighten strings
5. tune all to Drop C

Or you could patent it and sell it to Dunlop.

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...

I'll bet you this would be absolutely KICK ASS with a 12 string. You'd get more of the "drone string" effect.

Must try this:
- 12 string acoustic
- wooden spoon
- DADGAD tuning.
