So you want to sound like indie rocker Weyes Blood? Achieving her rock sound is no easy feat, as her sounds are very hard to achieve. The core of her rock music tones involves very expensive music gear, such as big pianos, expensive guitars and other very costly items. Sounding like Weyes Blood is not possible for the musician on a budget, however with this guide it is now completely possible!

Acquire a Guitar

Weyes Blood makes her rock music often using a piano. While this may seem like an strange instrument to use for a rock musician, it is actually a very common instrument for many rockers such as Elton John. Don’t forget, her music sounds like it’s old, but it is actually newly made (within the last 5 years). But sometimes she also plays a guitar such as in this video of her performing her one song Andromeda:

So in order to sound like her, you should purchase a guitar. In this video she’s using a very expensive old brown wooden guitar. This item would be too expensive for the guitarist on a budget. Luckily all guitars sound the same and the main difference is in the way they look .

So why not go for this, the Red Mugig Electric Guitar? It is available for a very cheap and affordable price on Amazon and is perfect for achieving the Weyes Blood style of tones, such as the ones on her new album, Titanic.

The Mugig Red guitar even includes a pitch pipe! This is a essential item. Weyes Blood has a very beautiful voice which always stays in tune with the song she is playing. A pitch pipe is necessary to keep your Mugig guitar in tune so the singing won’t get bad. Simply blow on the pipe and find the note that should be there, and then change it on the guitar to be that note.

The Piano Man

As Billy Joel said, “Sing us a Song Piano Man.” This lyric is very relevant to the fact that Weyes Blood plays piano and sings on many songs, even though she is a woman and not a man. The only problem is that pianos and keyboards are extremely expensive, and not realistic for the guitarist on a budget to purchase. Thanks to recent technology, it is now possible to make your guitar sound like a piano using guitar pedals.
