DIY Harmonic Series 24 – 48 guitar refret

IMG_0522

I am re-fretting my cable tie guitar into a harmonic series guitar by gluing panacea bright 18 gauge stem wire with super glue to the fretboard. This fretting technique was introduced into my xenharmonic community by Dante Rosati and I first saw it in person at OddMusic CU in the work of Andrew Heathwaite. Some of the frets above are obviously at an angle – this was needed to get the proper pitches. (I was matching a piano tuned to the harmonic series segment.)

Here is an example piece using a soundhole pickup.
