No, my friend was gonna bet one but changed his mind. They look pretty killer, have to say. I played a 9-string bass at the London Guitar Show the other month, similar technique with the two handed tapping. I think it's equivalent to playing the piano, in that you gotta sync yer right and left finger tapping together. Actually, that is pretty difficult. Not a stick, but something similar you ALL should check out:

I can't remember the guy's name off the top of my head, but if you look around the site you'll find it. I think it's Jason King.

^That's Justin King, and there are betters at the technique he employs :wink:

Anyway, Chapmans rule, and are quite hard.

Tony Levin plays that in the intro to Elephant Talk. Played right, thru the right amplification it sounds awesome. I saw a guy do a clinic where he did solo pieces but I'd rather have it in a group situation. I'd love to be able to play it but the guitar is my main focus right now.

Has anyone heard of Warr guitars? They're like chapman sticks but with a guitar body. They look a bit cooler to me.
