Microtonal Music

17 Noodles

Well, I finally got my hands on a 17 note per octave electric guitar thanks for Brad Smith, a local Luthier who did a lovely conversion of a Jay Turser strat copy I bought at the local Guitar Center for $65. The guitar is nicely very bright in tone and plays really nice thanks to the excellent conversion done by Brad. A surprising aspect of the guitar was how easy it was to adapt to 17 equal fingering. With some adjustments I can play 12 equal equivalents – and of course do more.

Here is a quick improvisation using only the effects of my used Alesis multimix 8 mixing board called 17 Noodles.

About two thirds through you will hear me switch from neck to bridge pickup. I particularly like how clear the full barr hammer ons came out at the end. As far as tuning the guitar – I tuned it as it is were a 12 equal guitar except I used the 7th fret – and 6th fret for the “B” string.
