Unexpected Melodies on Inappropriate Instruments

Postby Rik Bitter » Tue Jul 18, 2017

I've been thinking about starting a music thread for a while, but I didn't know if there were any other sound nerds here who would be into it. Judging from the posts about the lady playing the gayaguem there's some interest.

Know of any songs played on an unorthodox musical instrument or an instrument that's not normally used for that genre?

I'll kick it off with a few posts. Feel free to comment and post your finds.

Enjoy.

My understanding was that they made that as an audition tape for "America's Got Talent" but there was no interest in them joining the show which tells me that those people wouldn't know talent if it came up, kicked them in the nuts and rubbed their face in it's boobies.

I doubt this counts, but I couldn't resist.

Risk is the price that you never thought you'd have to pay.

I could fill several pages with posts from Rob Scallion's YouTube channel. He routinely takes different musical instruments and does some very skillful covers of metal tunes. Here's one of my favorite examples:

Slayer + Banjo = Epic \m/ \m/



if you like that here's some Rage Against the Machine on a shovel

What do you get when you get when you combine a player piano, a pipe organ and a transvestite?
