This is a great video, I'm glad you posted it.

We have had musicians post videos of themselves playing and riding, but they were on rollers, not out on the road.

Shadiyah posted one before, on a trainer. I am still trying to figure out a set up for a drum pad so I can crank out the rudiments on the trainer.

No!

It's illegal and unsafe to ride with no hands.

Interesting, set your pedal to hit the kick drum? Playing along with music would be a good way to keep your cadence if you're playing something andante.

Would a front hub generator put out enough power for an amplifier attached to a rear rack?

Another thought is to set up a series of bells across the handlbars, two octaves would be nice.

I was taking a short cut through a park one day and saw a guy getting ready to ride his unicycle with a guitar. I would have stayed to watch but he didn't look like he quite mastered it yet and I didn't want to become part of a interesting wreck.

Thanks. That's not too far off.
