We all know that sound travels underwater - if you've ever stuck your head underwater at a lake and banged some rocks together, you know this to be painfully true. But as a guitarist, I've always wondered if it was possible to play guitar underwater. Sure, the sound will travel, but will the density of the water prevent the string from vibrating at all? So I borrowed a friend's pool, rigged up a homemade hydrophone, and weighed myself down in the water with some dumbells to see what would happen when you shred in the water!
