Rob Scallon Unleashes Crushing Metal Track Using Just One Note
One of our favorite YouTubers has just released another video not to be missed. Multi-instrumentalist Rob Scallon can shred on any stringed instrument, but in this clip, he takes things in the opposite direction by composing a deathcore track using only one single note.
You may remember Rob Scallon for crushing Slayer's 'Raining Blood' on a banjo, nailing the track's solos with immaculate precision. Scallon also transposed Slayer's 'Angel of Death' and Cannibal Corpse's 'Frantic Disembowelment' for the ukulele -- once again, with all solos in tact. Scallons comedic videos such as 'Metal in Inappropriate Places' have also brought smiles on countless faces.
The musician's newest musical venture is titled '00000,' which describes the song perfectly. After busting out his nine-string guitar, Scallon experiences a moment of inspiration. He snips off eight of the nine strings, leaving only the thickest one. Perhaps emulating Emmure's 'Word of Intulo' and its 'World's Hardest Guitar Cover' video, Scallon proceeds in playing an entire song consisting of just the guitar's lowest note.
