Slowly learning to use a toothbrush on guitar and getting used to the fretboard layout.

@RussSharek When I'm playing it right it sounds a surprising amount like a cello or something playing vibrato.

How does one play a guitar with an electric toothbrush incorrectly?

@RussSharek To get a good sound you have to lightly touch the string with the ends of the bristles with just enough pressure. When you hold down the string on different frets the exact amount of pressure needed changes, so it can be pretty tricky to get right.

You've discovered more than I expected would be there. :)

@RussSharek I'm kind of glad it turned out to be a little more complicated than just "touch the string with a toothbrush" since it makes the whole gimmick feel a bit more like a legitimate skill.
