Prog rock band Polyphia is known in large part for Tim Henson and Scott LePage’s virtuosic guitar work. Musician Moyun shows us how their track Playing God can take on a whole new texture when performed with precision on the ancient string instrument known as the guzheng.
Awesome Prog Rock
During a halftime break, the Ohio State University Marching Band paid tribute to the legendary Canadian rock band Rush. The Buckeyes band added 20 extra toms and cymbals to their rhythm section for added oomph on tracks including Tom Sawyer, Limelight, YYZ, and Fly by Night. (Thanks Dave!)
Polyphia’s prog rock track 40oz has a has a downright insane lead guitar part. In this amazing cover version of the track, Cy Leo takes over lead duties on his harmonica, while Tsui Jack provides the beatbox rhythm, and Danny Yau sends his fingers flying on guitar. Combined, they sound like a human chiptune machine.
