Keytard Day, Pt. 1...

by Chris Randall
 



The world's whitest "solo," played on the world's second whitest instrument. I hear polyrhythms are the next big thing.

J.J. Cale would be rolling over in his grave... you know, if he were dead and stuff.

Actually, Cale's probably seen crap like this so many times he's numb to it.

Whitest Instrument - electronic autoharp.

I just counted 13,242 notes, total. Is that what you guys got?

RE: video
are there buttons or something for the left hand fingers to press other than the tremolobar/pitch bend wheel? Cuz it looks like there are some vestigal hammer-ons being tapped out to make it APPEAR more guitary.

That would be as poseurlicious as the open mouth chickenhead action.

I'd rule out the hammered dulcimer because of its similarity to the cimbalon.

I think the harpsichord might take it.

As a non-native speaker I have to ask for the meaning of "whitest" in this context. I am not satisfied with what I have found in my dictionaries. Is it meant to be some kind of "dull", "boring"?

TIA,
Michael

"Whitest" could be defined as "the instrument least likely to appear on a Dr. Dre production" in this context. That rules out the harpsichord, despite several votes to the contrary. And besides, the clavinet is the funkiest instrument ever, and it's really nothing but an electric harpsichord.

However, Aahzekiel and I agree: the Omnichord is, IMO, the whitest instrument ever.

Indeed, this goes some way to proving that point:
