I fondly remember when Texas musician and innovator Steve Marsh
performed with 2 other performers in my record store / art gallery
back in Dallas in the late 80s. Steve played a "modified" electric
guitar, but also performed on an instrument of his own creation which
was a full length, hollow body DOOR that he had built / attached some
over sized string frets on, and had pick ups installed on the thing.
He both strummed it and also played like a dulcimer,
and even used it as a percussion instrument. And the other 2
performers? One of them played a standard, non-modified electric bass
(and played it damned GOOD too!) and the drummer / percussionist
performed only on a few 5 gallon plastic water bottles, and a small
Their set was GREAT! Those were the days...
But, can ya just imagine a BUNCH of different types of those custom
built "door instruments" all gathered together as an ensemble?
I guess it could be called a "DOORCHESTRA"! Har! Hey! Why not...!?
