I recall Ralph Kolsiana showing me how he made quite excellent chicken sounds on his frypan.

Andy

Thanks for posting ..I enjoyed that for several reasons

I am a big fan of the National cast steels...the 1935 with matching amp looked great

The animals sounds etc can still be learned...I believe Mike Neer has an E-book available called "The Magic Guitarist" that instructs how to make these unique sounds....maybe I should pick up a copy

Finally, I chuckled thinking this video shows the " original melobar"....who knew all that was required was a piece of string

That's a nice time capsule of early electric steel guitar. That player is like a British version of Roy Smeck!

That book was written in 1937. The best part of the book is the awesome cover... that's why I chose it for my avatar!

Thanks for sharing this. I've been playing in a rock and roll band, and sometimes the singer will 'Throw me to the wolves' ("....with his amazing steel guitar!") or break a string. I usually fall back on a similar routine. People love it.

I have often wondered why my Cast Aluminium Dobro has a strap button on the bottom. I'm gonna have to tie a string on it and see how it hangs now!

Wow! Now, that was original.
I wonder how many hours of experimentation with techniques it took to achieve all of those sounds.
Amazing.
