Can You Play Tech Death On A Squier Bullet Strat? There’s Only One Way To Find Out!

When I think of technical death metal, the very, very dead last instrument I picture someone playing it on is a Squier with single coil pickups. Of course, you can play anything on any instrument – anyone who says otherwise has never been on YouTube, where creativity abounds (between videos of cats and babies).

South Africa’s Riffs & Chugs TV YouTube channel just had to know if it could be done, so they recruited the skills of Jethro Flack of Be Not Betrayed to spank that Squier into submission. The results, as they say, may surprise you.

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
