The Sonic Experiment: Part 3

Twin Shadow finds his voice with Revstar.

This is the third and final installment of a three-part video series called “Yamaha Revstar: Meet Your Other Half.”

Here’s a cool video in which musician Twin Shadow recalls his early experiences with guitar – taking one from his father’s closet whenever his dad wasn’t home – and gives us a look into the solitude afforded by his motorcycle journeys to Big Bear, California. “It’s important to remind yourself how important it is to take a step back sometimes,” he reflects.

“Learning how to play music has dictated the entire path of my life,” Shadow adds. “It puts you in the gang, this club of people that have a way of communicating with each other that [non-musicians] don’t have… [Music] is about elevating people and being elevated.”

He also shares his thoughts on his custom Revstar: “This guitar reminds me of a lot of different guitars that I’ve had throughout my life… [It’s] my tool for my vision, for my ideas.”

At the end of the day, isn’t that what all guitarists are searching for?
