Does anyone know of any weird effects you can do to your guitar? I am not talking about pedals and that kind of stuff, but like the kind of effect where you can put a vibrator on your pickup to make a weird noise. Or a leafblower on the pickup. Anyone know anything you can do???

i dont know the exact way of doing it but you can attach the guitar chord to your bridge or tremelo and instead of the guitars output and it makes a noise. i heard about it in a guitar magazine with tom morello

Ever heard "Psycho" by System of a Down?

A vibrator was usedto fret the notes in the intro.

It's simple but I use a wah and my tremolo arm on my strat at the same time, you can get some cool sounds.

You can press your neck/voice box thing on the strings and talk. But it won't pick up very many full words because for example you can't say "penis" because the "s" sound is not made by your voice.

cut your strings.

it pings like mad, sounds wicked and prevents you from playing more crappy music.

smacking the neck (lightly) with something metallic is fun.

Strum for guitar strings with a violin. Not a bow, an actual violin, so the 2 sets of strings rub.

In the vein of Gilbert, if you put the body next to any motor it sounds awesome.

If you combine pinch harmonics near the headstock with wah it sounds like a talkbox too.
