Since I discovered those clips of Göran Söllscher and his eleven-stringed guitar, I’ve been surfing around YouTube some more in odd idle moments.
And now, I bring you someone else who does amazing things with some extra guitar strings (in this case two extra - 8 altogether). These clips had me reaching for the Kleenex, even though I really do have quite a stiff upper lip most of the time - but the way this guy plays took me by surprise and did very strange and unexpected things to me.
There’s more about Antonio Lopez on his website, and he has his own YouTube and MySpace pages, too.
I confess I’m a bit smitten . . .
A lot smitten, actually . . .
