- Research Rock-Star: Oxford Scientist Analyses The Physics Of Playing Guitar
redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online When most scientists discuss string theory , they aren’t referring to the physics behind the distinctive lead guitar techniques of Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix, but that’s exactly what one Oxford University researcher examines in a new PLOS ONE study. “Very good guitarists will manipulate the strings to make the instrument sing,” Dr. David ...

- String Theory: The Physics of Master Guitar Playing
How do great guitarists bend a string like Eric Clapton or Jimi Hendrix? "Very good guitarists will manipulate the strings to make the instrument sing," David Robert Grimes, a physicist at Oxford University, in England, who plays guitar and was a member of a band in Dublin, Ireland, said in a statement. The physics of string instruments is fairly well understood, but "I wanted to understand what ...
- Ten Inessential Papers in Quantum Physics [Uncertain Principles]
I should really know better than to click any tweeted link with a huff.to shortened URL, but for some reason, I actually followed one to an article with the limited-reach clickbait title Curious About Quantum Physics? Read These 10 Articles!. Which is only part one, because Huffington Post, so it’s actually five articles. Three of…
- Crisis Or Challenge? The Physics Of Today
We don't have all the answers; many big questions hang over the world of theoretical physics. Is this business as usual? Or symptom of a major crisis in our understanding of nature?
- The physics of lead guitar playing
String bends, tapping, vibrato and whammy bars are all techniques that add to the distinctiveness of a lead guitarist's sound, whether it's Clapton, Hendrix, or BB King. Now guitarist and physicist Dr. David Robert Grimes has described the physics underlying these techniques in the journal PLOS ONE.
