Microtonal Music

Funky Downwind Smell

Not terribly odd except for how I did it with Fretless gutiar.

I recently bought a used Fender Squier for $60, pulled the frets with pliers, filled the cuts with plastic wood, sanded, and jammed. Took about 2 hours to make the guitar fretless and re-strung.

Pictures here

The following is all fretless guitar but for the drums recorded in Sonar 8.5

4 guitar lines through Alesis mix and run through Native Instruments Guitar Rig

2 rhythm, one octave divider bass and ebow driven lead and Session Drummer 3

I tried to play neutral 3rds and 7ths - more in the higher pitches than lower.

You + a self-modified fretless guitar + a universe of microtonal possibilities = we’re never going to get you off of that thing! Brilliant! Bold move! I can’t wait to hear some more of this.

Very cool stuff! Now I can't decide if I should have another go at the fretless or just give up and sell it!

all it"s "missing" is the brass section eh! :p so you managed to microtune it with couple hours, nice job! - oh and is there any genre you're not versed into?
