There are some who think that people who play extended range guitars should “just play a bass” or other such #daditude. I’m not sure if this video of YouTube maven Rob Scallon slapping the shit out of his 9-string Schecter in a sort of bass-like fashion will shut them up or further fuel the fire, but really, who gives a shit? Trolls gonna troll.
All I know is that this is an excellent example of what a 9 string guitar is good for. He’s using it’s extended range because it fits the composition and fills the sonic space, like a piano. And it sounds great. So listen and enjoy!
