Multi-instrumentalist Andrea Boccarusso, who previously created “The History of Metal”, quite impressively performed an ongoing, original song playing seven different guitars. To show the difference, he varied the song to suit each particular guitar.
An exciting journey throughout the different faces of this beautiful instrument called guitar.
With each guitar, Boccarusso provided information about the specific sound of the instrument and for which style of music the instrument is most commonly used. He also explained how different effects, pedals, and whammy bars work to alter the sound.
