Another great submission to our Made of Imagination project with MTV.
Ryan Gregory made an 8 string guitar with hand made pickups, and thumb-pianos built from bicycle spokes, yard rakes, and other stuff. There’s also a suitcase kick drum and a foot powered hi-hat/tambourine/snare combo instrument. Love the performance at the end!
