Artist: Rob Scallon
Genre: Metal, Djent
Well if it isn't the internet's favorite guitarist, Rob Scallon.
Rob has been making music for the last 10 years on YouTube, but most people only became aware of him in the last 3 or 4 because of his banjo covers of popular Metal bands.
I feel like his originals don't really get the respect that they deserve though, so whenever I post him I really try to include them as much as possible.
Let's talk about his 9 string guitar real quick. It's basically a one of a kind prototype that he received due to his partnership with Schecter, a popular guitar brand for Metal musicians. The big thing that he does with the guitar is he doesn't abuse the lowest string. It's such a hugely different range between the lowest and the highest strings that if you're doing what Rob does here with playing across the whole thing it turns a little muddy. All in all it's a really solid song to listen to though, so have fun listening to it and supporting an independent artist.
