Mondays often require an extra dose of good cheer.
With this in mind, I went in search for videos of the “sitar-guitar” (also just called a “sitar”) that I’d heard referenced in a conference presentation a few years ago.
I was intrigued, but time went by and I never followed up to find out what it actually sounded like. Little did I imagine what other instruments my search for the sitar-guitar would turn up today!
To launch the week, here’s an array of guitars and guitar-hybrids from around the world. And here’s to the creative musical minds that keep this instrument evolving!
Sitar guitar, Rob Mastrianni
Harp guitar, Tony Seeger
Harpolyre, John Doan
Omstrument, Jack Hass
