The Chapman Stick may not be the most well-known instrument, but it’s got to be one of the most interesting.
Invented in the 1970s, this cylinder-shaped music maker is basically an electric stringed instrument with two parts relating to the guitar and bass. It almost sounds like four instruments in one: guitar, bass, keyboard and drums. Watching the video, you quickly see it’s not easy to master, but this musician executes his performance perfectly.
How he does this so flawlessly is baffling. It’s rhythm and tune are truly gorgeous.
