Today I learned about an instrument called the Chapman Stick – It been around since the 1970′s. This musical instrument is freaking awesome. What can I say. I love innovative things. This really is a cool instrument that looks like a guitar, but played like a Piano. Seems to be harder to master then the piano as this instrument has what is called texture. Take a look as the following videos, and you will see what I mean. The Chapman stick is fully customizable to the player. It has incredible pickup and only a slight touch of the strings makes some beautiful music.  I will let the following videos speak for themself. ENJOY.
