i wasnt sure what forum to put this in, so im sticking it in the pit. if it doesnt go here, just let me know, and please dont be a total dick, thanks.

anyway... im looking for a good acoustic instrument that'll give me that buzzing sound that you can get with a sitar, but i dont really have a lot of money, or the time to learn something as complicated as the sitar. are there any smaller easier to play cousins that give the same style of sound that the sitar does?
thanks for the help,
Pete

How about a didgeridoo? It's pretty simple to play, and it'll give you a good buzz sound.

2. Think loosey goosey baby.
3. ???
4. PROFIT! (and buzz)

to be honest, I thought they were awful. I mean some of the songs our drummer's written was better than their stuff.

cut a strip of paper a little longer than the distance from your E string to your e string, and about an inch to 2 inches wide (you have to experiment. Then weave it in between the strings close to the bridge. I used to do that to play aqueous transmission by incubus, nobody knew how i did it lol. Put the strip closer and further from the bridge to experiment with different tones, and also a different width of paper gives different sounds. Try it, i think it will please you.

This. It is a really good technique. Johnny Cash used to do this with a very small piece of paper but larger pieces make strange sounds sometimes. just experiment like chris said.
