Let's Play With Sticks

This is Greg Howard. He plays the Chapman Stick. I have known about this guy for a really long time, and I am not sure why I have not posted on him before, but here it goes. Better late than never I suppose. Anyhow, if you have never heard a Chapman Stick before check it out. I think it is a pretty cool instrument.

Here are a couple of cool videos:

(Goya's Dream)

(All Blues)

He has a bunch of stuff on YouTube - as well as other players playing the stick.

Tony Levin (the bass player for Peter Gabriel, among others) has taken to this instrument in the last few years, but Greg, I think was one of the first, and in my opinion the best.
