Tesla Coils Fulfill Their Ultimate Purpose As Performers Of Southern Rock

    October 11, 2012

The Tesla Coil may be one of the most versatile electricity generating machines ever created. They have been used for years to make music (and perform death defying stunts), but one man may have one of the most impressive Tesla Coil set ups I’ve ever seen.

YouTube user Eric Goodchild has used two Tesla Coils to perform the entirety of Lynyrd Skynyrd’s seminal Southern Rock classic Sweet Home Alabama. Unsurprisingly, the Tesla Coils’ performance is much better than the original.

Goodchild has proven himself to be somewhat of a master musician when it comes to Tesla Coils. Here’s some of his other musical masterpieces created through the power of lightning.
