YouTube Favorite Rob Scallon Rocks Metal Song Using One Fret
The guitar is an amazing instrument and Rob Scallon has found many different ways to use it. The YouTube star has taken on his latest challenge, rocking out a metal song using only one fret.
Normally we find ourselves complimenting a guitarist's dexterity as they noodle up and down the fret board, but in this case, Rob delivers a raucous performance while keeping his fingers on the fourth fret throughout. As Scallon reveals, "[It was] the 4th fret and a LOT of bends."
Further elaborating on how he pulled off his latest piece, he added, "Tuning low to high: D-G-A#-D-A-D. I was thinking about tabbing this out. But only fret used is 4, and the video would probably be a better way to tell where the bends go anyway."
And for those unimpressed with Scallon's one-fret performance, he's ready to really put his fingers to the test, stating at the end of the video he plans to compose a song using every single fret on every single string for his next clip.
Scallon has become a favorite here at Loudwire, rocking songs in Morse Code, ripping through unique Metallica covers, switching to banjo for a cover of Slayer and pulling off other thoroughly entertaining instrumental videos. Keep up with Scallon's videos via his YouTube channel.
