ive been watching vids on youtube and have seen this guitar like instrument with 12 individual strings, held upright like a cello and fretted with both hands, have seen it several times so i dont think its just some wierd custom guitar, help?
It's called a chapman stick. http://www.stick.com/ Have fun, man.
The "stick" is designed for two-handed tapping ala' Stanley Jordan. It's a major investment both in terms of money and technique.....But it is interesting.
