    Great video! But with projects like this and the stilts, I think it would be nice to find someone who can use them, like get someone from a local band to actually tune and play the guitar. It’s cool to see that it works, but it would be really nice to see how well someone can play it.

      @ Peter – I totally agree. I had a guy lined up to play it along with me on the drums but it fell through at the last minute and I was in a time crunch to get it edited and uploaded. Bummed so I just showed that it actually does work. Thanks

        Frets aren’t necessarily required, you can use a glass bottleneck like they do with cigarbox guitars. That way you’d only have to mark where the frets would be for a general idea of what note you’re playing.
