Guitar of the Deep

An Epiphone Les Paul guitar manipulated into a synth...

The story

This instrument was born after my need to have a bass sound which sounded like a synthesiser but wasn’t actually a synthesiser. So I picked up my Epiphone Les Paul guitar and started to experiment with it making weird sounds, when I thought the weirdest thing I could do was to go simple. The samples are from the G, D, A and bass E strings of my guitar, recorded with the palm of my hand on the strings to have a more closed and picked sound; then I added effects on Logic and made this instrument.

This is the first real Sampled instrument I uploaded on Pianobook after the trial of “Into the Forest”, really hope everyone can enjoy my work.

    Used this in a Drum and Bass track, Cranking up the Drive function. Great low end depth and emotion!

    It's a lovely thing, puts an ocean of emotion into my playing, either floating on top as the lead, or doubling up on another guitar to provide fathoms of depth
