It may not sound that great, but I'm a big fan of any technology that allows arcs of electricity to shoot between the amplifier and the guitar during a bitching Metallica solo.
Or you can have the Tesla coil BE the instrument:
Oops, just watched the video…same thing, different controller I guess. Still pretty rad.
Ride tha muthafuckin’ LIGHTNING!
He’s chicken – why didn’t he move CLOSER??? I abso-f*ckin-lutely LOVE the smell of fried guitarist in the morning ….
Gary61: Agreed, especially if it’s Jack White.
Jack White ‘plays’ guitar? Is that what the kids are calling it now?
(and his sister, what’s-her-name, ‘Off White’??)
I know Jack Black plays guitar ….
You guys are aware Jack White shows off a Tesla coil in COFFEE AND CIGARETTES? (he doesn’t play guitar next to it though).
I say let’s get Jack White and Jack Black to compete in ‘Celebrity Air Guitar’, we can sell the idea to Fox and make MILLIONS …. millions, I tell ya …..
and I bet Jack Black wins.
Or maybe Jack Gray will win.
Sounds more like Ministry than Metalica. And I’m still waiting for someone to wire one up to a vocoder, so we can have talking Tesla coils. Steven Hawking would definitely need to upgrade to some sort of lightning throwing monster robot body at that point.
