The Chapman Stick Discography
by Chuck Ivy and Rob Mellor
3rd January 2005
About The Stick:
This is a partial discography of music recorded including the use of an
instrument called the Chapman Stick. The Stick is an electric stringed
instrument that combines the range of the guitar and bass with a technique more
similar to a piano. Available in 8, 10 or 12 string models, its strings are tapped
and held to create musical tones. A note can be created by a single finger, thus
allowing both hands to play independent bass and melody lines -- no strumming or
plucking is needed.
For more information about the Stick, contact:

About this Discography:
This discography currently contains information for 451 recordings.
This document is by no means complete; given that new recordings are continually being made, it probably never will be.
We have, however, entered the basic framework for all the recordings we know of.
Note that we are not currently including track listings or additional
musicians in the discography. Such additions, while wonderful for
completeness, would only add to an already Herculean task. For many of the artists
in this discography you will find track listings, personnel and much more by referring to
their websites, or by consulting individual discographies for specific artists. This is,
first and foremost, a Chapman Stick discography.
We would welcome your additions and suggestions. To submit an entry, email Rob Mellor at
or Chuck Ivy at email@example.com.
