Unique musical instruments. Rahzel. Stomps. The Blue Man Group. How to be a musician without playing thhe guitar or drums.

To be a musician you don't have to be able to play guitar or the drums. If you have a creative mind you can do whatever you wanna do. There are successful bands that play musical instruments in ways that you might not have ever heard about.

1 If you're an *NSYNC fan you know that Justin Timberlake has been bringing his beatboxing skills into the mix. They used his talents in the background track on the hit Pop. Well, there's another person who is a supremo beatboxer. His name is Rahzel and everybody knows he's "The Godfather of Noyze." His musical instrument is his own throat and mouth. He can create songs that sound like more than six different instruments at a time - just using his mouth. It is unbelievably cool! What sounds like magic is really just seamless talent. Check out this site for the 411 on Rahzel's beatboxing.

1 Then we have the musical prowess of The Blue Man Group. The Blue Man Group has thrown out the basic guitar, base and drum monotony of everyday music like pop and rock and made their own instruments. The band is made up of three guys who paint themselves a solid metallic blue for every show and public appearance. They use Air Poles, which are short, thin poles that make a swoosh when they are whipped through the air. They also use The Tubes, which are special pipes that are struck with rubber paddles to make a cool sound. The Gary Strip is a long, flat, aluminum sheet that makes a thunder sound when it's moved around. That list is just a fraction of what you'll see and hear from the Blue Man Group.

Stomp is another performance group that have drifted from the norm. They use broomsticks, pots and pans, garbage cans - even the kitchen sink, to make music. But they don't just hang out on stage pounding their various household items. This group does brilliant dance routines and uses lots of audience participation to make their performances even more exciting. Click here for more on Stomp.

So if you wanna be a rock star but you don't play any generic instruments and can't sing without your dog howlin', don't worry about it, the possibilities are endless.
