Monday Music: Unchained Melody

The Chapman stick was devised back in the 1970s by jazz guitarist Emmett Chapman. While it resembles a guitar fret board, it is longer and wider, usually having 10 to 12 strings. Instead of strumming, or plucking the strings, as with a guitar, the notes are made on this electric musical instrument by "fretting", or tapping the strings against the fret board.

Here you can enjoy Matt Rogers and Mark White of Heartstrings playing "Unchained Melody."
