QR – Cure – Quizzing Realms – 112

A slightly trivial and arbit one for the day.

Also, sorry for skipping a day between posts. My internet connection was working up yesterday.

What is this? Who is connected to it?


Happy quizzing, and have a nice life, folks!

Also, thanks Kunal for your comments on Surfbored – 1. I am a senior sub-editor at DNA Jaipur, so I obviously get paid for my work. ;)

By the way, I would also like your suggestions and feedback, especially if you know some more sites.

As for Ravi Handa’s comments on the same post, I have already covered FMyLife, but thanks for PostSecret.


Several of you got this one correct. This is a guitar patent by Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen, that allowed him to tap his guitar better!


  1. Eddie Van Halen. Guitar Patent for a flip-out support device which attaches to the rear of the electric guitar.This device enables the user to play the guitar in a manner similar to the piano by orienting the face of the guitar upward instead of forward

  2. Did not know this. A bit of googling gave the result as US Patent No. 4656917 for Musical Instrument Support by Edward L Van Halen who popularized the "tapping" technique and this is the "Flip Down Guitar Support".

  3. Eddie Van Halen! right, I love this guitar pieces. in one of his songs, he can actually talk with his guitar.But I don't these points are. Sports.... I am lil behind schedule. Literature, music and with me and tuned but needs finer tuning. yup i like ur blog. but the Monet's painting is not that arresting.


    a different kind of guitar which gives player's both hand to play the instrument in a new way.....edward van halen


Post your answers here. Wait for them to be moderated, which will take a day or two to be done.
