    Cool Doing bad things to a Stratocaster version 1

    The following has all been recorded (badly) by me using a Fender Stratocaster - a nice early 80's jap made one too.

    Don't think Leo would like what I'm doing with it. I call it MOMD- music of mass destruction.............

    No Money/ or Stratocaster was harmed (or used) in the making of the this music! and that's gotta be good for something.

    I'm at a computer without sound, so I'll be back after listening.
    I'll have to check out some of your other videos too.

    I heard some electronic sounds I never heard before, which is rare nowadays.
    Here's one for you, Eddie, a retro Pink Floyd acoustic, pre-synth trick from "Meddle", in "Echoes".
    Take an acoustic guitar with metal strings, round wound being best, and a slide, glass or metal.
    Above the fifth fret, take the slide and move it quickly side to side.
    If harmonics start coming out, you've got it, if not, try changing the slide.
    When you get the harmonics going, keep moving the slide sideways and slowly move it up the fretboard,
    trying to keep the harmonics going or get new ones.

    All of this is dependant on the string height, tension, glass or metal slide and your hand movements.

    ^ Too late, I'm onto it ............ also been trying various material on the bridge on the Guitar mmmm all good thoughts. Have done a multitrack version - which does sounds a bit Floydish but luckily (or unluckily) depending on your view point currently its too big a file to upload.

    Will post cut down version of the multi track soon- watch out! you have been warned.

    Thanks for your comments John- one of the things I'm trying to do is come up with some new electronic sounds by alternatives means ie non synthed, just using guitar and effects etc.....

    This is another bad thing to do to a Stratocaster, and I still get chills,
    even if this thrill is so ill I haven't seen it since the late sixties,
    when only Jimi Hendrix as a major rock act was using a Stratocaster onstage,
    and this might be the one thing he didn't do with one.
    And it's not about the notes.
    Did you know you can lay a '60-'64 Strat upright on the floor and stand on the neck,
    oh, until it bends enough for the wood to touch down,
    springing back up with a joyful sound as you jump off, if you keep your balance?
    I've never seen that in any kind of video, but I'll never do that with my guitar.

    The first time I saw a guitar player do that with a Strat,
    I was not only shocked to see him standing on it on the floor,
    but the neck popped back and it still was in tune.
    I tried it with my arms, pushing my '64 neck as hard as I could,
    but I couldn't touch the floor, like I knew I would.

    Back then, Gibson guitars could lose a headstock or crack a neck,
    just by falling off a stand on the floor,
    but it took over ten whacks, usually, on a hard object to break a neck offa Strat.

    Maybe not nightmares, but if there's one thing about the sixties I worry about now,
    it's licking 9volt batteries and riffing about it online.
    Now that sounds so wrong compared to what's being disliked around me now.
    And... and, no matter what anybody else says, even though they work good,
    I never used a partially drained, acceptable for wah use 9volt as a sex aid.
    My own wattage is always more than enough.

    Very funny and scary, both the strat and the 9 volt. Bet it would not be worth even thinking of trying that on any of the modern made strats whether Fender or copies.

    But have you used a Wah Wah as a sex aid!
