Check out the band motograter!!! they took this idea to the max using steel industrial cable instead of bass string and added alot more!!! they actual don't have a traditional bass player, they only use their "motograter" instead!!

Is that video also how you built it 'Cos I'm in school and they've blocked the video same with youtube, metacafe and others

I'm sorry but I have no idea what I just saw. When you are trying to communicate technical information (like the 'how-tos' on Instructables), simpler is better. Your video is too distracting with all the wild effects.

Okay. I just found the real Instructable posted earlier. Negit my last (which used to mean, 'ignore my previous communication.'). So this is just a demo. I'm good with that. A little more info would have helped.
haha drilled:D
