    I think most metalcore bands could get away with 2-tet. Root and fifth. Or would that be 3-tet?

    i thinks its pantatonal
    being that its not based in a particular key but resolves therefore is not atonal

    I wish Youtube wasn't blocked at work so I could watch this. Microtonal music does rule...I've got a great CD of the Kronos Quartet playing some microtonal music by George Crumb that I might put on when I get home tonight.
    The idea of different tempering systems on the fretboard is a good one, although personally I find fretless fingerboards are a better medium for applying this stuff to the guitar.

    I think Steve Vai has a guitar similar to this that he used on one of the Flex-able albums...

    And what does Youtube being blocked at work have anything to do with you not being able to "watch" that website? :fawk:
