Top 5 Djent Songs – Played On An ACOUSTIC Guitar?

Dean Murphy is one of my favorite extended-range guitarists, partially for the fact that he errs mainly on the side of clean sounds which is a bit of a rarity these days (and the rest is because he’s a phenomenal player and composer).


In this video, he demonstrates the meaning of dumb fun by playing his top 5 favorite djent riffs on his Agile 8 string acoustic guitar (see his review of it here), resulting in some interesting and hilarious tomfoolery.

And here’s some of Dean’s original music, just so you know he’s not just a goofball:

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.
